NOT: Bokchoy Tang, Level 2, The Crossbar Building Federation Square, Cnr Flinders & Swanston Sts, Melbourne

Bokchoy Tang is a contemporary high-end Chinese restaurant which holds a prime position facing Federation Square and ACMI. The long narrow restaurant is impressively decked out in expensive-looking cabinets and feature tables, and a window table is a pleasant place to bask in the afternoon sun. I haven’t been to Bokchoy Tang in years and […]

HOT: Kat’s Cakes, 309 St Georges Rd, Fitzroy North

Over the years I’ve been to many weddings and being a huge sweet tooth, I always pay particular attention to the cake.

HOT: Tim Burton: The Exhibition, ACMI, Federation Square, Melbourne

NOT: Sex and the City 2

Today we have a guest post from Kylie, a writer for the sister blog BNE: HOT OR NOT, reviewing Sex and the City 2. Sorry if you liked this film SATC fans, but she hated it! Thanks Kylie. I’ll be honest. I wasn’t expecting a lot from this movie. I’d seen a few reviews, and […]

HOT: Felice’s, 141 Greeves St, Fitzroy

Just last week I discovered that tucked in behind a lurid kebab shop on Smith St is the other-worldly Felice’s. The retro wood panelling and black laminex bar is reminiscent of an old-fashioned Italian social club, while interesting touches such as the giant model aeroplane suspended from the carved ceiling take the cafe out of […]
