Scoopy Milk Bar by HWKR, Melbourne

Scoopy Milk Bar by HWKR, Melbourne

Let’s cut to the chase: Scoopy Milk Bar is so good! I haven’t found a Patbingsu that I liked so much, I’ll be definitely coming back. This Korean dessert features shaved ice served with toppings that can include fruit, condensed milk, syrups, beans and anything […]

Tsujiri, Soho, London

Tsujiri, Soho, London

Hey, its Tsujiri in London. I have had it one time before when it first opened in Melbourne. As a recap Tsujiri is a Japanese dessert chain with a 155 year history, now found all over the world including here in Soho, London. Matcha heavy […]

Kova Patisserie, Soho, London

Kova Patisserie, Soho, London

Kova Patisserie in Soho is the place to go if you want a bite of the millie crepe trend. I was keen to try, but it’s not really my thing. It’s super expensive at £5.50 per slice, and another pound more if you want the luxury of eating in. And then, it lives up what you expect – crepes with a hell of a lot of cream. Still, if that’s what you want to sample, then it’s good for one try!

Kinka Izakaya Original, Church & Wellesley, Toronto

Transport yourself to Japan with a night in at Kinka Izakaya. It’s available in two locations of Downtown and Annex. It turned out to be my most memorable dining experience during my time in Toronto. It’s a bustling Japanese experience, full of authenticity and good eating. From […]

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 hot matcha latte. We were a little later in the afternoon so food items were minimal, without anything really catching my interest. The location, interior and service make for a pleasant, relaxed vibe – perfect for the inner city. Nice, rich matcha with a smooth, milky top. Great stuff.

Matcha Mylkbar, St Kilda

Matcha Mylkbar, St Kilda

The pun-laden menu is the best part of the Matcha Mylkbar experience, one that unfortunately caters more for an audience of cameras rather than humans. I had been rather excited to try the fare here, inspired by glorious sights of green-bunned burgers, blue lattes and […]

Tsujiri, Melbourne

Tsujiri, Melbourne

A new dessert chain that’s fresh off the boat from Japan to Melbourne’s shores is Tsujiri, which takes it’s residence over the former Guylian cafe on Swanston Street. The matcha soft serve is decently good but is pretty overpriced. Most of the options are tipping around the $10 mark. And this is machine bled soft serve confectionery (with some minor additions).
