Zero 95 has been on my list for a while with everyone suggesting that I should hit it up and they had won best Margherita in the world in 2016. So…I made a booking, snagged a table and got ready for a carby night with the girlies.

Kumo Izakaya & Sake Bar, Brunswick East

Taking full advantage of the half price dining when booking restaurants via The Fork, we decided to meet up for some Japanese at Kumo in Brunswick East. We made a booking and got there smack bang on the dot and we were shown to our table. The interior’s very modern and chic with a great mural on the wall. Now, back to the food.

Vamos, Melbourne

Vamos was definitely a hidden restaurant on Little Bourke Street and it’s not very obvious where it was. Inside what looks like an apartment building and up the elevators, you’ll get hit in the face with a cozy and spanish vibe when the elevator doors opened. They have live music which is always a plus AND it’s super romantic so boys and girlies, take note.

The Rouge Squire, Wheelers Hill

Exploring the eateries around work, we found another place to hit up, The Rogue Squire. A booking was made and a entered we go. The Rogue Squire is a brewhouse that offers, you got it, beer, beer and beer. BUT, we’re not here for the beer, we’re here for the food. Walking in, we pass through the downstairs pub area, take the stairs and we entered the eating area.

New job meant new places to eat and we made a booking at Madeline’s at Jells which is located right inside Jells Park by the lake. It’s a very cosy venue and the staff were quite friendly. We were shown to our table and BAM we started ordering because, well, everyone was super duper hungry.

Minh Minh Saigon Soul, Richmond

Richmond is known for all their restaurants and good food and on the main street sits Minh Minh Saigon Soul. Opened for such a long time and having undergone a new facelift. The decorations were oh so cute and the mural on the wall was beautiful. However, the tables and chairs didn’t really suit the restaurant but that’s another story.

Yokohama Teppanyaki, Glen Waverley

Work wanted to have a dinner to catch up and they picked Yokohama Teppanyaki in Glen Waverley. Parking was quite difficult and the venue was located in Century City Walk. The staff were very polite and the venue gets super busy so luckily we remembered to make a booking. We sat at the table and decided to do the Moriawase Set for $59.50 a head.

Stalactities Restaurant, Melbourne

Stalactites is a Melbourne Institution and most Melburnians would have stopped by here on a late drunken escapade as it’s opened 24 hours. So when Baby A only has a few nights left in Melbourne before he jet sets off back to QLD, all the babies decided to take him to Stalactite.

Shinbashi Yakiniku, Carlton

The stooges plus Ms Pear decided it was was time to check out the new Japanese BBQ Shinbashi located in the heart of Lygon Street. We made a booking online, turned up and BAM got to our table and looked over the menu. We were there for lunch on a Sunday and there was only one floor staff looking after all the tables. Poor thing was running around like a headless chook BUT he was so friendly, polite and very attentive.

Piatella Cafe Bar, Glen Waverley

Piatella Cafe Bar sits in the heart of the eating strip in Glen Waverley and that means parking will be a b***h. However, when we got inside, it was very cosy and welcoming. We put our order through the day before since we had a group of 7 and needed to finish lunch in 1.5hours. Unfortunately, our food did not arrive until 1 hour later without any explanation or the staff coming over to let us know which was very disappointing. Let’s move onto the food.

The pumpkin gnocchi was very rich but the flavour was so delish. It was very pumpkin-y but it was a very heavy dish and I didn’t manage to finish half of the dish at all.

Pumpkin Gnocchi – $26
Potato gnocchi cooked in a creamy pumpkin sauce with tender chicken breast, pork-prosciutto, roasted pine nuts and baby spinach
