Gong De Lin, Melbourne

A few of my vegetarian friends have moved away/ started going out less, so it’s been a bit of time since I’ve headed to an exclusively vegetarian restaurant. Gong De Lin hits an awkward niche as it’s Chinese food served vegetarian but with mock meats […]

Lau’s Kitchen, St Kilda, Melbourne

Lau’s Kitchen, St Kilda, Melbourne

My experience with Lau’s Kitchen may not have been super proper. It’s one of the few Asian options in Saint Kilda. And my parents almost exclusively order along those lines. At Lau’s Kitchen the menu is super high end, so we only ordered two dishes. […]

Grill’d, Melbourne Central, Melbourne

Grill’d, Melbourne Central, Melbourne

It’s always a good time at Grill’d. It’s such a people pleasing venue that comes in handy whenever you have a big group type of situation. The Grill’d in Melbourne Central is rather consistent to the expected Grill’d experience. This store does offer a nice dining area in the complex with plenty of seats for groups of any size.

Pho Hung Vuong Saigon, Footscray, Melbourne

Pho Hung Vuong Saigon, Footscray, Melbourne

A bit of a mixed experience with our visit to Pho Hung Vuong Saigon over in Footscray. Great prices and the pho was excellent. But the grilled pork on rice was rather bad. It’s a small piece and so dry and inedible. So all good […]

Shuji Sushi, South Yarra, Melbourne

Shuji Sushi, South Yarra, Melbourne

Laksa King Kitchen, Flemington, Melbourne

The cleaner sister of Laksa King is here. The recipes might be the same and the location is almost the same, but overall the experience at Laksa King Kitchen falls into the shadow of the original. But there’s pros: there’s no queue and it’s way cleaner and more spacious.

Pacific Seafood BBQ House, South Yarra, Melbourne

Pacific Seafood BBQ House, South Yarra, Melbourne

It’s always a mixed bag when it comes to Pacific Seafood BBQ House, but one that I’m always happy to open and discover! This place has had a bit of a legacy with our family, we seem to have visited it a lot. It’s also […]

Flovie Florist Cafe, Carlton, Melbourne

Flovie Florist Cafe, Carlton, Melbourne

Flovie Florist Cafe knows how to turn heads… and noses. The florist-meets-cafe in this unique and beautiful brunch venue. Probably the prettiest cafe I’ve been to in a long while, and well worth the trip/ wait. The sweet stuff is where top marks are at […]

The Oakleigh Doughnut Co, Oakleigh, Melbourne

The Oakleigh Doughnut Co, Oakleigh, Melbourne

For a blog called Donutsam, there’s an alarming lack of actual reviews on donuts (or doughnuts). That will all change with one recent evening excursion out to Oakleigh. We would be visiting The Oakleigh Doughnut Co to sample their highly Instagrammable confections. The store’s open until 10pm and you’ll definitely leave on a sugar high.  (more…)
