The brews are agreeable but our experience at the Niagara Brewing Company was a frustrating one. It feels like a place that’s efficient and well run, but our food order took over an hour. And when you have only an hour before your tour bus […]
If you’re looking for a lakeside brewery and restaurant hotspot check out the Amsterdam BrewHouse. It’s a staggering 14,000-square foot restaurant that seats over 500 guests. So it’s not a place that you particularly need to book ahead. But it does indeed get busy. We […]
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 afternoon and it’s clear to see it’s a favourite with the locals. Not necessarily worth heading in solely for the food, but definitely the atmosphere at The Palace Hotel is a good one to be in.
Somewhat dated but entirely welcoming, Jimmy Watson’s remains a stalwart option for Lygon Street drinking. The courtyard space provided an idyllic spot for a lazy Saturday afternoon for some reminiscing with friends. You know this review was mostly a booze up as all the food […]
Bavarian isn’t a cuisine that features terribly often back home, so I dragged my friends out to return to Hofbrauhas with me for some meat and carb offerings from the Northern hemisphere. My first few visits of Hofbrauhaus had such vivid memories of ending absolutely […]
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 is fantastically efficient with all the staff seemingly hooked up to some crazy digital system that keeps menu items coming out with ease.
We could only judge on the items we ordered, and we thought the fries and pretzel were solid. The pretzel we had was with cheese and jalapenos and it delivered to expectations. We rather enjoyed the truffle mayo that accompanied the fries and on the tables next door, the meals looks intense in size. Reminds me of the food over at Hofbrauhaus, it’s probably a related business.
A nice spot by the water and a great location for some group weekend drinking.
Docklands is a bit of a funny area, being as culturally desolate as it is windy. The food scene needs a hell of a lot more developing, here Harbour Town Hotel is entirely functional but needs a je ne sais quoi to be much more […]
The Mail Exchange Hotel has a great location near Southern Cross and was also a spacious and relaxed venue, making it the perfect stop for a goodbye meal with one of my best friends here. Corner of Spencer and Bourke is one of my favourite […]
