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.

MKS Spices’n Things, Dandenong

Working around the South East suburbs, a colleague suggested we hit up MKS Spices’n Things for some quick and delicious Sri Lankan food for our quick lunch. There’s plenty of parking around but unfortunately it’s all paid parking which was a shame. MKS is a grocery store out front and a quick eats round the back. Now, don’t come here expecting awesome sauce service because it’s a quick feed and it does get busy.

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.

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.

Cafe Blush – Emporium, Melbourne

It was a family day out and whilst shopping, mumsy and daddy bear got a touch thirsty, thirsty for some caffeine. Luckily we were shopping in Emporium and a cute little cafe named Cafe Blush caught our eye. Cafe Blush is a Japanese inspired cafe and mumsy bear thought it was the cutest cafe ever. We were greeted by friendly staff who showed us to our table immediately.

Mumsy bear got a cappuccino and it was totes creamy. However, it wasn’t smooth or strong at all and it wasn’t fragrant either which was disappointing.

Cappuccino – $4

Lune Croissanterie, Melbourne

The legendary Lune Croissanterie. Croissant lovers all know about this cult eatery and all the lining up you have to do in the original Fitzroy store and since I’m not really a morning person, I’ve never done it. So when they opened up a store on Collins Street, it means I can definitely check it out. So when I had a free weekday, I took mumsy and daddy bear into the city to check out Lune.

I’ve been meaning to check out the local scene and I’m getting there slowly one cafe at a time and the next one on the list is The Rusty Owl.

Walking in we were greeted by lovely staff and you can instantly tell that the customers that come in are regulars and definitely locals.
