HOT: Po’ Boy Quarter, 295 Smith St, Fitzroy

The eagle has landed. Or rather, the Gumbo Kitchen food truck team have set up permanent digs in Fitzroy with Po’ Boy Quarter. Po’ Boy Quarter serves up the same Creole/New Orleans inspired food that has made Gumbo Kitchen a Melbourne food truck favourite. The food comes fast, the servings are huge, there a lot of deep-frying […]

HOT: LuxBite x N2 Extreme Gelato Melbourne x Uber Melbourne

As far as marketing stunts go, the collaboration between dessert specialists LuxBite, ice cream laboratory N2 Extreme Gelato and premium taxi service Uber Melbourne is a deliciously fun one. For this weekend only (Friday 30 August to Sunday 1 September), Malaysia’s kaya coconut jam will be featured in two special ice-cream dishes at two Malaysian-run […]

HOT: Round the Way Bagel Burgers Food Truck, Mr Wow’s Emporium, 97B Smith St, Fitzroy

One of my favourite local bars is the fun-filled Mr Wow’s Emporium. There aren’t many inner city bars which also feature an airport strip light-style indoor bocce corridor! I also love the ping pong table, large curved bar festooned with dangling phallic looking naked bulbs against the backdrop of a huge Melways mural (in case you […]

The Barons Palate – Giveaway!

I love a good pop up! Especially when the experience combines food and drinks with cutting edge art and design. The Baron Said is a warehouse event space in Fitzroy which derives its name from a historical character created by Sir Martin Lang, a scholar and nobleman who produced literary works in the 18th century. In keeping with […]
