My friend lives in the Bentleigh area and has been raving about Little Tommy Tucker ever since it opened, so we made a lunch date to try it out.
Richmond Café & Larder is an institution in the Richmond area founded by Stephanie Alexander. The café is housed in a beautiful Victorian building from the 1800s.
There seems to be a burst of Vietnamese cafes and restaurants opening up re-inventing the tired establishments in Victoria St and giving this cuisine (one of my favourites) the hype it deserves. Roll'd is expanding quickly since bursting on the scene in their popular City locations.
A lunchtime surprise organised by our lovely receptionist allowed me to try the Lil Nom Nom's foodtruck. As a fan of Vietnamese food, I perused the menu struggling to choose what I wanted as everything sounded really good.
I was excited to hear that Circa had a new Spring menu created by their two Head Chefs Ashly Hicks and Lyndon Tyres. So it didn't take me long to book in a dinner with one of my good friends to try out their new dishes.
It's not often where I have to eat my words and on this occasion I do... I went to Hannoi Hannah when it first opened and didn't have the best experience and I shut it down and even bagged it in my Saigon Sally review.
Continuing on my search for American hearty food inspired by watching countless episodes of Man Vs Food, I was excited to discover a new cafe in Prahran, Third Wave Cafe.
Rosetta is still one of the gems sparkling brightly at Crown. I'm yet to meet someone that doesn't like this restaurant, so it was nice to dine back there almost 8 months since my last visit.
If you were to ask me which are the best Italian restaurants in Melbourne, Il Bacaro would certainly be on my list. There's not a lot of places where you actually feel like you're in another country and sitting in Il Bacaro you could be mistaken for being in a cosy restaurant in Italy.
