Hunky Dory, South Yarra, Melbourne

Hunky Dory, South Yarra, Melbourne

As someone who doesn’t eat seafood… I don’t have the most fun when dining at Hunky Dory! It definitely has the biggest serve of chips I’ve ever seen, which is surely a good thing in itself.

Greedy Cat Top Kitchen, South Yarra, Melbourne

Greedy Cat Top Kitchen, South Yarra, Melbourne

Feeling greedy? Well at Greedy Cat Top Kitchen you can get quite a fill for less than $10. For probably the cheapest lunch around these parts you can get a sizeable donburi, although a decent chunk of that ends up being rice. Some weird (maybe […]

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 least a little bit ‘grungy’. And now that I’ve tried it, it’s definitely grungy, but a good grungy with amazing burgers to match.

Alleyway Kitchen, South Yarra, Melbourne

Alleyway Kitchen, South Yarra, Melbourne

The scents of the office have evolved over the last week and one of the reasons for this is the re-opening of Alleyway Kitchen in the 670 Chapel Street complex. Delicious Chinese dishes including the naughty kind with my personal favourite of the honey chicken. […]

A25 Pizzeria, South Yarra, Melbourne

Miss Chu, South Yarra, Melbourne

Miss Chu, South Yarra, Melbourne

It’s been a few years since my last experience at Miss Chu South Yarra. My opinion of the chain hasn’t changed too much. It’s hip, modern Vietnamese that’s polished and with a price tag to match.

Miss Chu is an easy choice for many people: there’s lot of options, lots of those options are healthy (ish) and it has a cool vibe.

Hello Sam, South Yarra, Melbourne

Hello Sam, South Yarra, Melbourne

Hello Sam Burger Cafe in South Yarra has been a long-standing part of my introduction to Melbourne. Four years ago I got a voucher as part my welcome pack in my new apartment. And this year, I had another voucher as I started working down […]

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 […]

Sandwich Chefs, South Yarra, Melbourne

Sandwich Chefs, South Yarra, Melbourne

I have an affinity with pork crackling and unconsciously veer towards any regardless of the situation or environment. As such I’ve taken note of Sandwich Chefs which only reopened at 670 Chapel Street in South Yarra a few years back. It’s a franchise but it’s a franchise that offers pork roast and cups of cracking so…
