Etto Italian Street Pasta, South Melbourne, Melbourne

Etto Italian Street Pasta, South Melbourne, Melbourne

I’ve had a mix of experiences with Etto across Melbourne, with the South Melbourne one being my usual go to due to proximity to my now former office. The menu is mostly pasta, wholly customisable, as well as other Italian treats and sides. On the […]

Meatworks Co, South Melbourne

Meatworks Co, South Melbourne

Good fitout, good service but the food needs a little tweaking over at Meatworks Co. It has the right meat qualities of a BBQ joint but not the aspect where you get full. We had a extra large group in for lunch and the staff […]

O’Connell’s Hotel, South Melbourne

O’Connell’s Hotel, South Melbourne

We were treated to a fine lunch with work partners over at O’Connell’s Hotel. The South Melbourne restaurant provides a surprisingly cosy setting with top notch serve and well prepared cuisine. From the outside it looks like your typical gastropub affair but inside the menu and […]

Paco Y Lola, South Melbourne

Paco Y Lola, South Melbourne

In spite of protest, I was summoned back to South Melbourne for a first-of-the-year lunch with the old ex-colleagues. Almost all of the team in the office, minus the social team, who weren’t that social. Paco Y Lola was our choice and we all had a […]

Wok This Way, South Melbourne

Wok This Way, South Melbourne

Got our group together for a lunch date over at Wok This Way. Cheap pricing and various asian cuisines are featured in the menus of this venue in South Melbourne. We ordered online for the ease and free bonus prawn crackers but ended up eating […]

Ilya Health Bar, South Melbourne

Ilya Health Bar, South Melbourne

We noticed a new store taking over the former About Yoghurt premises and just like that, Ilya Health bar came into our office lives. We popped in a few times before the end of the year, as I was hooked enough from the first visit. The range […]

Meetbowl, South Melbourne, Melbourne

Meetbowl, South Melbourne, Melbourne

Most of the office tended to give Meetbowl a miss, but I’m glad I checked out it with the food a nice change of pace from the usual. Offering authentic and possibly too authentic, Indonesian cuisine – it has a no frills feel with street […]

Palace Hotel, South Melbourne, Melbourne

Palace Hotel, South Melbourne, Melbourne

We hiked over to the Palace Hotel for a gigantic team group lunch. The staff did a great job of co-ordinating dishes across the twenty-plus sized squad. The quality of the fare was well, fair. The place has a great, buzzy vibe on our Friday […]

Beatbox Kitchen, South Melbourne, Melbourne

Beatbox Kitchen, South Melbourne, Melbourne

Check out Beatbox Kitchen’s burgers, dropping at a market or event-thing near you. Solid offering and decent value at $12 for the Raph burger make for a sweet addition to the foodscape here. The boys and I headed down for a lunchtime pickup, with the burgers […]
