HOT: Touche Hombre, 233 Lonsdale Street, Melbourne

In a city that’s chock full of Mexican restaurants, what makes Touche Hombre special? For me, it’s the fun atmosphere, punchy flavours and super-quick service right in the heart of the city. I call it ‘Wham Bam Thank You Ma’am Mexican’. The interior is all laneway brashness, with exposed brick, concrete, bar stools and kitschy […]

When it comes to dining, Melburnians are increasingly wanting to go casual and restaurateurs are getting the message. So it went with the transformation of semi-high end restaurant The Aylesbury into Bomba, a Spanish bodega/vermutería (all the rage in Spain at the moment). The space has been warmed up with the judicious use of wood, […]

HOT: Los Barbudos, 95 Smith St, Fitzroy

With the American/Southern/Mexican thang that the Melbourne food scene has going on at the moment, I guess it was only a matter of time before we hit the shores of Cuba. Los Barbudos is a new Cuban cocktail bar from the Thank You, Come Again group that brought you Lily Blacks, Mr Wow’s Emporium, Double Happiness […]
