Banoi is a Vietnamese restaurant right in the heart of corporate CBD focusing on the lunch crowd. I went one Friday with a friend from work to try out their Friday special – Crispy pork. Being a big lover of Pork belly i was very […]

Hochi Mama, Melbourne CBD

Hochi Mama, Melbourne CBD

Hochi Mama is a hip Vietnamese fusion restaurant nestled in the backstreets of Melbourne’s CBD. We were invited to try out their menu and had a great time in doing so. It ticked all the boxes with food largely being really good with the cocktails, service and […]

Cookie, Melbourne

Cookie, Melbourne

I don’t often have leaving-the-country dinners, but when I do, I pick the biggest and most central spot I know of. And Cookie is perfect for both of those. The huge space in the centre of Swanston Street accommodates many. As well as the handy spot, […]

Mamma’s Boy, Melbourne CBD

Hot Star Large Fried Chicken, Melbourne CBD

I finally got around to trying Hot Star Large Fried Chicken. And large it most definitely is. With the powers of the ever useful Entertainment Book I had two-for-one. The fillet certainly lives up the claim of being head-sized. The meat is cooked to order and […]
