Whilst in Croydon hanging out, I was getting a bit peckish so we wandered around until I laid my eyes on a burger joint – The Local Burger Co. Mr D could not refuse a burger eatery so we marched our way in. It’s really cosy inside and if it’s full, there’s always outdoor seating too.
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.
Motorhome majestic is the new American burger joint (Yep! Welcome to Melbourne guys) but with ribs and wings (oooh la la so fancy) and is the baby brother to Grand Trailer Park Taverna and Werribee’s Truck Stop Deluxe. I was invited by Motorhome Majestic and Zilla and Brooks Publicity and Production to their launch and all opinions expressed are my own.
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.
Royal Stacks is the newest Shake Shack inspired burger place to open up in Melbourne with the help of Dani Zeini who also opened Grand Trailer Park Taverna, Truck Stop Deluxe, Easey’s and Dandenong Pavilion. I was invited to attend pre-launch of Royal Stacks and all opinions expressed are my own.
