Pablo Honey is the new South American inspired bad boys in town located in the heart of St Kilda, conveniently located in front of the tram stop, opposite lunar park and 5 minutes walk from the beach (I told you it was in the heart!). They’ve only been open for 4 months and already, the place is buzzing with excitement.
It was Mr Burberry and Miss Teeth’s birthday bash and they chose to head on down to Sezar for some Armenian food. I decided to let Mr D take the lead and try to find the place and he spotted the bike which eventually led him to the restaurant.
One of my work mate has never tried korean BBQ and we decided to all take him (road trip…not really!). Miss Mousey chose the place and it was all the way in Carnegie – Korean BBQ. She made a booking and in we went.
Palinka is a 7 month old eastern european tapas inspired eatery located in the hustle and bustle on Brunswick street in Fitzroy. Palinka is a traditional fruit brandy invented in the middle ages where they are distilled and bottled in Hungary and four provinces in Austria. Named after a fruit brandy, you gotta expect big things from them.
The newest bad boys in town – Little Oscar and they’re doing korean influenced american burgers (what??!!) and have been opened for 2 months (still babies!) in Brunswick. We were greeted very warmly by the staff and was shown to our table. They had a lot going on with ropes being part of the decor which I thought was pretty cool. They also have a live DJ and music so you know this place will be pumping!
The Food Truck Park has landed permanently at Preston re-lauching on Friday 12th February from 5PM – 10PM and then opening weekly from 12PM-10PM Friday, Saturday and Sundays. Basically, it’s a permanent spot where various food trucks from burgers to desserts are there to serve for your eating pleasure. I was invited by AMFVG to attend the opening and all opinions expressed are my own.
Gemelli Cafe Grill is the new eatery at Point Cook offering burgers and steaks from the grill and aims to use local produce and give back to the community (naww). I was invited by Yolk Agency and Gemelli Cafe Grill to attend their opening launch and all opinions expressed are my own.
My workmate has been going on and on about Gurkhas and when Groupon had a deal, he made sure I got it. I got the banquet for 4 for $50 (usually for the simple feast, it was $24.50 per head) and made a booking for a Saturday night since we were in the partying mood.
I was in charge of organising dinner for work and lucky me, I got to pick the place. After hours of running around, a work colleague suggested Hellenic Republic (it was closer to his house) and I realised that this place has been on my to go list since FOREVER! Why does this name ring a bell you say? That’s because it’s one of George Calombaris’ (yep, that guy from masterchef) restaurant. Luckily, I was able to make a reservation for 18 people on a Saturday night at one weeks notice. Anywho, there was a 2 hours time limit but that didn’t deter me at all.
