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 […]

N. Lee Bakery Cafe, South Melbourne, Melbourne

N. Lee Bakery Cafe, South Melbourne, Melbourne

I ended up spending a surprising amount of time with N Lee Bakery Cafe on Clarendon Street. A short stroll from the desk. How can you say no to freshly baked bread, savoury meat rolls, delightful pastries and generally great value?

Shakahari Too, South Melbourne, Melbourne

After some fantastic eating at Shakahari, I was extra keen to check out their newest location in Clarendon Street of South Melbourne. Shakahari Too is somewhat hidden away with a venue that is surprisingly tranquil and peaceful once you step inside. We ended up feeling relaxed and […]

Thai Deli, South Melbourne, Melbourne

Thai Deli, South Melbourne, Melbourne

For one of my final work lunches in South Melbourne I crossed the road for Thai Deli. This is one of the area’s staple Thai cafes, churning out delicious and speedy authentic meals in a relaxed and entirely non-pretentious setting. I ordered the sticky rice noodle […]

Ela-Re, South Melbourne

Ela-Re, South Melbourne

I rather enjoyed my little handful of Greece in a recent gyro from Ela-Re, located a skip along from the South Melbourne Market. Fast and friendly service meant my Pappou Kosta (lamb, tzatziki, onion, tomato and chips) was in my hands in no time. It […]

My Masala, South Melbourne

My Masala, South Melbourne

Dining at My Masala was a bit of a wild experience. One that starts off unsure, then confused, then mind-blowing fantastic. The store has a bit of a crowd that attracted me in as it wasn’t my original lunch choice for the day. Upon entering […]
