HOT: Goshen, 189 Smith St, Fitzroy

I heart heart heart heart Goshen. Authentic hot and spicy Korean food, lovely presentation, a calming interior of dark wood and delicate stencils on green-tea walls and super-friendly smiley staff. It’s easily my favourite cheap eat in Melbourne and the sole (Seoul – guffaw) reason I want to visit Korea. I could just leave the […]

HOT: The Pantry, 1 Church St, Brighton

Heading to the beachside suburbs of Melbourne is now a day-trip for my northside self. But not only is it geographically distant, it’s almost a foreign land compared to my local hood (which centers around the Un-Safeway of Smith Street). This is a land where fake boobs bob perkily above skinny soy decaf lattes, where […]

HOT: Markets in the Garden, Royal Botanical Gardens, Birdwood Avenue, South Yarraf

NOT: Authentic Thai Taste, 92-94 Johnston St, Collingwood

Authentic Thai Taste is renowned for being one of the best Thai restaurants in Melbourne – the full house of Thai people on a weeknight is evidence of that. So where did we go wrong? We’ve had two attempts at weekday takeway from Authentic Thai Taste now and neither of the experiences have really encouraged […]

HOT: Auction Rooms, 103-107 Errol St, North Melbourne

Auction Rooms is a casual cafe/restaurant set inside the old WB Ellis auction house in North Melbourne. In fact, the long wooden floorboards, exposed beams, distressed brickwork and high ceilings hoisting a series of whirring fans reminded me a lot of the interior of an airy Queenslander home. It seems like the kind of place […]
