Mukka Indian Restaurant, Fitzroy, Melbourne

Mukka Indian Restaurant, Fitzroy, Melbourne

It’s been about five months since I left the shores of Australia for a new life in Europe. I haven’t forgotten my final meal, which was a stellar performance. Mukka Indian Restaurant made for a perfect sendoff. This ended up being my favourite Indian meal […]

Girls and Boys, Fitzroy, Melbourne

Girls and Boys, Fitzroy, Melbourne

“Oh, it’s Vegan”. I spent a good mile strolling, before realising that the slight difference in texture and flavour was down to the difference in ingredients. Could have had me fooled. I popped in to try something sweet, with a lot of caution mind you. […]

Tasty Rooster Charcoal Chicken, Fitzroy, Melbourne

Tasty Rooster Charcoal Chicken, Fitzroy, Melbourne

Performing a few miracles when I’m in desperate and urgent need of something fried at an hour that’s sometimes late, Tasty Rooster Charcoal Chicken is the local for something quick, cheap and meaty. It’s a no frills affair with an extensive menu offering including rotisserie […]

Ichi Ni Nana Izakaya, Fitzroy

Ichi Ni Nana Izakaya, Fitzroy

Try saying that name fast five times over. Funky interior stylings and hip staff make Ichi Ni Nana Izakaya a super cool spot for some not-so-traditional Japanese food stylings. Catalina and I popped in for a quick dinner before a film and we loved half […]

Shop Ramen, Fitzroy

Shop Ramen, Fitzroy

Ramen – but not quite as you know it. Taking a much more contemporary take and targeting a hip, young crowd Shop Ramen adds a little something different to the Japantown that Smith Street already is. I’ve had takeout from the store when it was […]

Re: Addict Food & Coffee, Fitzroy

My favourite brunch spot will probably end up Addict Food & Coffee here in Fitzroy. I don’t mind the portion sizes, great service, and always enjoy the surprising and impressive menu options. I’m also a little biased due to proximity from my house and I’m […]

Peko Peko, Fitzroy

Peko Peko, Fitzroy

I had only popped into Peko Peko for a quick lunch but was quietly impressed with this little gem. The flavours are simple, but very effective and done so well. I ordered one of the karage chicken lunch specials (around about the ten dollar mark) […]

Hanabi Sushi, Fitzroy

Hanabi Sushi, Fitzroy

On my final discoveries of all places Japanese on Smith Street, I headed into Hanabi Sushi to check out their offerings. They’re open 11am to 7pm and I popped in twice for lunch to check out their hot offerings and their hand rolls. There’s usually […]
