Exquisite local toasted sandwiches and coffee

By | May 17th, 2020|bars and restaurants|

I wrote a post sometime last year about a pub in my neighbourhood closing down last year. The previous owners had the pub for over 20 years and I believe the new proprietor bought it for 3 million Australian dollars (or 10 million!!? - I am not sure)!!!! He didn’t seem to make a go [...]

Isolation Saturdays – tequila!!

By | April 25th, 2020|bars and restaurants, cocktail recipes|

I felt like I wanted to get trashed earlier. It was 3 pm on a Saturday afternoon, and I was tonguing for a margarita. It was altogether too early for tequila though. So, I am glad that my friend called me. Margaritas are actually a pretty efficient way to get tipsy. The recipe is as [...]

A holiday in Sydney – Potts Point

By | March 1st, 2020|bars and restaurants, friends, holidays|

Sydney is a nice city, I think. I was lucky enough to be staying in Potts Point for the five days I stayed in Sydney after the trade fair. The Airbnb apartment wasn't the Hilton, but it was the absolute best location, and the view from the balcony outside my room was amazing. Each morning [...]

What are your favourite things to do on a Saturday morning? Top of my list is creative writing and brunch. I should be at the gym, but that is for another story another time. It is essentially my first weekend of holidays and I want to spend it sitting in the sun at Libertine and [...]

It is a new world. Always a new world! Not so much fun writing on my iPad, but maybe it slows things down...increases awareness. This is all for another post in a different universe. For now, I am...ahem, writing a review of an old favourite haunt in my neighbourhood. I think The Noble Experiment has [...]

Altercation in a bar in Prahran on Saturday night

By | September 7th, 2019|bars and restaurants, weather|

Was interesting to step out on Greville Street, Prahran tonight. After a fantastic house party bbq for an old friend’s 40th, I was at home eating dinner and remembered that my friend Miss Party Feet was hosting some drinks in South Yarra. I quickly got in touch to ask if I could join them and [...]

Mill House and Bornga Korean BBQ

By | August 3rd, 2019|bars and restaurants, friends|

It has been quite a weekend so far! Or quite a week! Last Saturday my friend and I went out for cocktails in the city at Mill House and then to Korean BBQ. This was something else for me, as I have never tried it before. What an amazing experience! So delicious.

Everyone is welcome at the table – Lentil as Anything

By | May 26th, 2019|bars and restaurants, portfolio|

I recently spoke to Paula from Lentil as Anything in Abbotsford, Victoria about the story of Lentil as Anything and why they do what they do. One thing that we didn't have time to cover in the interview, was the fact that people pay for their food at Lentil as Anything on a 'pay as [...]
