HOT: 1+1 Dumpling Noodles, 84 Hopkins St, Footscray

Dumplings + Noodles = my favourite two carb-loading Chinese dishes. And at 1 +1 Dumpling Noodles you can order not only dumplings and noodles but lots of other interesting Xinjiang food, a far cry from your run-of-the-mill Cantonese food that often labelled as ‘Chinese’ food in Australia as if it was one huge, homogenous cuisine.

HOT: The Little Man Café, 158 Victoria St, Seddon

On a cold and windy morning the first thing that struck me as I entered The Little Man Café Seddon was the bright airiness of the decor. Pushing over the door was like basking in a dose of Scandinavian sunshine – the kind that illuminates the sky for 22 hours in a day. It made […]

For the next few weeks there will be lots of Melbourne Food and Wine Festival event reviews on the blog. First up is the delightful Food Safari Picnic that happened on the weekend. I was invited as a guest of Yarra City Council and didn’t really know what to expect. And for a first-time go […]
