CJ Lunch Bar, Melbourne

CJ Lunch Bar, Melbourne

One of the cheapest and busiest Korean places in town is CJ Lunch Bar, concealed in Little Lonsdale Street and easily identified by the queues forming around. Two reasons: great food and cheap as chips.

Udon Yasan, Melbourne CBD

Udon Yasan, Melbourne CBD

Since last time I existed in Melbourne, Udon Yasan has since opened up a second location in the CBD. My previous visits to the original Udon Yasan had me raving about their convenience concept and fast service. So I’m not too surprised to see it […]

8bit., Melbourne CBD

8bit., Melbourne CBD

My first experience of 8bit in the city was terrible, and I vowed never to return. But I was hungry and enticed by the offer of a free burger (via the Liven app) that it made me go in for another go. And I’m glad […]

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 […]

Patricia Coffee Brewers, Melbourne

As one of Melbourne’s highest rated coffee places I was naturally excited to check our Patricia. It’s in a bit more of a corporate location in Little Bourke, but you’ll still find the bright, shiny hipster staff here to happily serve you a smashing brew. The […]

The Dessert Kitchen, Melbourne CBD

The Dessert Kitchen, Melbourne CBD

The Dessert Kitchen is an interesting place. The dishes originate from Hong Kong, where they have over thirty stores, as well as in Manila, New York and Sydney. The menu is miles pages long, and feature quirky twists on already quirky flavour combinations. The space […]

Little Rogue, Melbourne CBD

Little Rogue, Melbourne CBD

Little is the word here. Tucked away between Lonsdale and baby Lonsdale St is Little Rogue, a charming cafe with a small amount of seating but a lot of matcha! And it’s good. We had one of the iced matcha latte and one of the […]
