Ming’s Noodle & Sushi Bar, Collingwood

Ming’s Noodle & Sushi Bar, Collingwood

One of the cheapest places to eat on Smith Street also turns out to be one that’s up there with the best of them. Ming’s Noodle & Sushi isn’t about¬†innovative, forward-thinking delights, this is straight up traditional noodles and stir fries done simply, done well […]

Re: Proud Mary, Collingwood

Third time’s the charm for Proud Mary, and I think I have a good view of the place with that many visits now. Service remains shit, the staff have an aversion to greeting and you stand in the front door a solid five minutes before […]

Bluebird Espresso, Collingwood

Bluebird Espresso, Collingwood

Bluebird Espresso has some amazing scores on Zomato, but I can’t say I fell in love with the place myself. I dragged my friend Jo to check out the food and whilst the service was warm and hip, the food left a little to be […]

The Noble Experiment, Collingwood

The Noble Experiment, Collingwood

This week I’ve been raving about my experience at The Noble Experiment, a drinking and eating house located in Smith Street of Collingwood. The experiment is undoubtedly a worthwhile and memorable one and I’d highly recommend it for anyone to give a go with a […]
