Kyodai Katsu, Carnegie, Melbourne

Kyodai Katsu, Carnegie, Melbourne

I feel like I’ve had a bit of a tonkatsu renaissance of late, having been lucky enough to visit Japan and visit some top tonkatsu restaurants around the world. Closer to home, we have Melbourne’s second katsu specialist restaurant: Kyodai Katsu in Carnegie.

Malaysian Laksa House, Melbourne

Malaysian Laksa House, Melbourne

Don’t be fooled by the peeling menus and low prices, Malaysian Laksa House delivers some flavourful laksa (as well as many other Malaysian dishes) in a low fuss manner. You don’t need to spend that much to get your Asian-food fix in the CBD of […]

When I first got back to Melbourne I found myself with the time to indulge in whatever food adventures I liked. This meant heading over to Springvale for some Asian food and today’s choice was Vietnamese- Chinese restaurant Minh Ky.

Pho A Gogo, South Melbourne

Pho A Gogo, South Melbourne

When I first worked in South Melbourne I was obsessed with Wat Da Pho. As a result I ended up missing sampling more family, low key joints like Pho A Go Go. I’m glad I ventured over this time, because the pho is so much […]
