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 […]
Don’t be fooled by the peeling menus and low prices, Malaysian Laksa House delivers some flavourful laksa (as well as many other Malaysian dishes) in a low fuss manner. You don’t need to spend that much to get your Asian-food fix in the CBD of […]
