HOT: Guerilla Espresso, Shop 228, Footscray Market, Irving St, Footscray

Run, don’t walk. The truffle toastie is back at Guerilla Espresso! Guerilla Espresso opened just over a year ago on the edge of Footscray Market and it recently won ‘best small cafe’ in The Age Good Cafe Guide 2014 awards. The cafe, a former DVD stall, is definitely small, squashed amongst some trashy $2 stores. It seats only […]

HOT: ‘Bring Your Bub’ Photography Tour of Footscray, Westside Discovery Tour

Every 3 months Maribyrnong City Council hold free ‘Westside Discovery Tours’ where locals and visitors can discover the hidden secrets of Melbourne’s inner west. One of the sold out tours that I attended was the ‘Bring Your Bub’ Photography Tour of Footscray which was held in conjunction with Culture Mamas. Photographer Terry Murphy led 8 mums and bubs on a […]

HOT: HM Quan, 5/68-82 Hopkins Street, Footscray

There are loads of Vietnamese eateries on Hopkins Street Footscray yet HM Quan still manages to stands out. Mainly because of its crazy, Hawaiian-tiki inspired decor and toddler-sized furniture (for kids and adults alike).

HOT: 8bit, 8 Droop St, Footscray

8bit’s burgers, hot dogs and shakes are exactly what Footscray needs. It’s a culinary 180 from the numerous Vietnamese and African options in the suburb. While it’s admittedly pretty cool to have such gourmet ethnic diversity on my doorstep, before now it’s been pretty hard to get after a good quality straight-down-the-line burger and fries. A […]

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. […]
