Zen Charcoal BBQ, South Yarra

I came here with a friend for dinner since she was craving Korean. We were in the area since we were seeing 112 (YEAH BOIIII!) and needed to stay close to the venue. I made a reservation on a Sunday night but we were a tad late but I called ahead to let them know (politeness FTW).

Hako, Melbourne

Dinner with the gang again and we (when I said we I mean Mr Burberry) felt like Japanese. He chose Hako for a Saturday dinner and of course Melbourne was pouring down raining. We got inside it was actually quite cosy. It felt really modern and fun inside.

Jinda Thai Restaurant, Abbotsford

Catch up with the girlies and this time we decided on Jinda Thai since one of the girls wanted to give it a go. We had to book it one week in advance on for a Wednesday night at 7PM. I turned up and it was of course raining (gees, thanks winter Melbourne) and Miss Panda and I rushed in while waiting for Miss Train (a story from Malaysia!).

Mamasita, Melbourne

It was a catch up with my two stooges and we decided to try out Mamasita (been hanging to come here FOREVER!). Since there were three of us, we couldn’t make a booking for a Thursday night, they only do lunchtime bookings or for dinners has to be a table for 8-10 people (sure we can try to eat for 8 people but we were not going to be able to leave the place if we tried…). So the rule was whoever finished work goes in first to bag a seating. Turns out I was the first one there at 6:30PM and headed upstairs (I did miss it, very inconspicuous).

Tacos? Tequila? YES PLEASE!

Totally missed this door…

D.O.C Pizza & Mozzarella Bar, Carlton

I convinced my friend Ms 3G to have dinner at DOC so I can pop my DOC cherry. Since there’s no booking for tables under 7, we decided to do a walk in at 6PM on a cold wintery Wednesday Night. I got there a tad late due to the yucky parking but Ms 3G got there at 6PM and she said it wasn’t super full at all. I rushed in to get away from the cold, I was hit in the face with warmth and Italian wait staff (felt like I was in Italy….kinda!). As we were deciding what to get from the menu, all I could smell was the pizza base, cheese and every italian goodness. GOD I was soooo HUNGRY!!!
