Leonard’s House of Love, South Yarra, Melbourne

Leonard’s House of Love, South Yarra, Melbourne

My first and second apartments were both in South Yarra. But in that time I had never made it to Leonard’s House of Love. I definitely heard the noise, and saw the back part of the kitchen. This made me think the place was at […]

Hankki, Carnegie, Melbourne

Hankki, Carnegie, Melbourne

How good is Hankki? My friend Jo heard good things about the place so we chose it for our first ever meal in Carnegie. And we chose super well with this bustling Korean eatery. Probably the best KFC (Korean Fried Chicken) we’ve had in Melbourne […]

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.

Belles Hot Chicken, Richmond, Melbourne

Belles Hot Chicken, Richmond, Melbourne

This was my second experience of Belles Hot Chicken. Even though my first one was meh, I thought it might be worth giving it another go. This was the newer store in Richmond, and it was a more sleek experience. Although I ended up still […]

Coqfighter Chicken & Beer, Shoreditch, London

Coqfighter Chicken & Beer, Shoreditch, London

For a London food blog, I haven’t done much London restaurant reviews lately at all! That’s because my plans changed a bit and I ended up traveling for a while. As I’m continuing to do so. In between all of that I always return back […]

Dotori, Finsbury Park, London

Dotori, Finsbury Park, London

So… Dotori in Finsbury Park has always been a bit of a mixed bag for me. I agree it’s the best Japanese-Korean restaurant in London. And I’m not sure if I mean that as an aggregate, or that it is the best Japanese restaurant AND the best Korean restaurant. But. And a big but; I always find the service lacking. It’s a ridiculously popular eatery and the both times Ive been there’s also a serious waiting time. Luckily, there’s a pub nearby to nurse a pint until you get the bell.

Randy’s Wing Bar, Aldgate, London

Randy’s Wing Bar, Aldgate, London

From Hackney Wicks to the Minories, Randy’s Wing Bar finally comes to the city. And fortunately for us, around the corner from the office. My friend Jey and I escaped the moody air con of the workplace and dove mouth-first into the tasty, fried wings […]

Bubblechick, Hackney, London

Bubblechick, Hackney, London

A few weekends ago, my friend Arielle and I found ourselves in Hackney Central on a terribly rainy Saturday. The kind uncle from Bubblechick invited her to take shelter in the store, and funnily enough, we saw ourselves coming back for lunch. It’s right opposite […]

Cafe Shelley’s, Soho, London

Cafe Shelley’s, Soho, London

One of my absolute favourite chicken katsu curries in London, in one of the most surprising venues. Actually it’s a really strange mix at Cafe Shelley’s. It’s a sandwich bar, doing Turkish-type wraps, salads and jacket potatoes. Not other Japanese foods in sight. Rumour has it that it was the original Soho katsu curry having first opened its doors in 1975 and its evidently lasted the test of time.
