Lanzhou Beef Noodle Bar, South Yarra, Melbourne

Lanzhou Beef Noodle Bar, South Yarra, Melbourne

Since I last lived in South Yarra, there’s been an explosion of new eating places, many of these being Asian. It’s probably to do with the growth of all the apartment blocks, also part of the reason why I decided to move on. For a […]
