Roza’s Kitchen, Southbank, Melbourne

Roza’s Kitchen, Southbank, Melbourne

Roza’s Kitchen is my new local and I’m somewhat thankful for its presence as there’s not a heap of food options (within 5 minutes of the house). At first glance it looks like standard late night pizza/ kebab fare. But the pizza I got was […]

Roll’d Southgate, Southbank, Melbourne

Roll’d Southgate, Southbank, Melbourne

In continuing my quest to maximise value of the Entertainment Book, I head south to Roll’d in the Southgate complex. It’s only a quick bite as my friend Nick and I are heading to a recital afterwards. Fortunately the food’s mostly ready for you. The […]

Emporio Pizza and Pasta, Southbank, Melbourne

Emporio Pizza and Pasta, Southbank, Melbourne

A friend and I headed to Crown for lunch! A few of their restaurants were offering a $15 set menu, and one of those places was Emporio Pizza and Pasta. This restaurant was located in the actual casino, and we ended up with a delicious […]

Dinner by Heston Blumenthal, Southbank

Merrywell, Southbank

Mad Mex, Southbank

Mad Mex, Southbank

There’s more than a few Mad Mex(es?) around, and the one we visited on this occasion was in the DFO South Wharf complex. It was about the same as the other Mad Mexes I’ve been to around town, so above average franchise Mexican that gets […]

Munich Brauhaus, South Wharf

Munich Brauhaus, South Wharf

A friend and I stopped by the Munich Brauhaus for some snacks and drinks on a weekend afternoon. The design of the place is fantastic, it’s modelled after a Bavarian beer hall and is pretty huge in size, so perfect for a big group. Service […]

Melba, Southbank

Melba, Southbank

A throwback review of a special time in my eating history. Our work gave us allowance for each team to get a Christmas lunch or dinner and the three of us chose Melba. We had a fantastic evening of eating ’til we couldn’t, with an […]
