With so many places in Melbourne to check out we decided to venture a touch away from the city so explore and we made our way to Edwin Wine Bar and Cellar. Chic interior and cool vibe, Edwin is definitely where it’s at. The night started off with a selection of meats and cheese where each 40g will range from $10-$12 per type and yep, definitely worth it and you can get a huge variety.
Selection of meats and cheeses
A tradition has started for us where I would take mumsy and daddy bear out to try a different cuisine for their anniversary or even just a night out. They’ve never tried Spanish food so I decided to check out Anada in Fitzroy. We made a reservation online and we were seated at the table by the front door.
TSK is the the new sushi joint in town and I was luckily enough to be invited to their opening launch in South Melbourne. Music pumping, free flowing alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinkies, who couldn’t be more excited.
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.
After a day of Archery Attack we decided to refuel somewhere close and of course we wanted something healthy and opted for Matsuya in Fairfield. It was super busy when we got there and luckily for us they managed to squeeze us all in.
Holla! Got your attention now haven’t I? Well Holla Coffee Roasters also got my attention and located on the quiet end of the Victoria Street in Richmond. There’s parking in the back streets so don’t worry if you drive in. Walking inside, you can feel the buzz of the cafe and you’ll notice that heaps of customers come in and get take away coffees. The staff were super friendly and the space was sleek with plenty of greenery.
When I heard that there was a cheese high tea at Westin Hotel in collaboration with Maker & Monger, I had to make a reservation at once! When we arrived, we were made our way to the bar to let the staff know that we had a reservation. We sat down and checked out the menu. So for $70 per person, you get a range of cheese savouries to sweets with unlimited tea, coffee and hot chocolate.
Hidden away on Little Lonsdale Street sits a little Japanese restaurant with no obvious signs that it’s a restaurant that specialises in Japanese Pork with their signature Tonkatsu which is deep-fried pork-loin covered in panko. So, if you’re feeling like pork or want to have good pork, this is the place you definitely want to be at. It’s very cosy inside and only has one chef which means it’s intimate guys! All the staff are friendly and you get service with a smile.
Tahina Bar in Northcote has been around for about 3 years now and they’ve opened up another one on Brunswick Street in busy Fitzroy. Tahina serves up Israeli vegetarian street food along with superfood smoothies and wholesome ingredients. From the outside it looks teeny tiny but when you walk out to the back, there’s quite a large courtyard so don’t get fooled like me!
When I had a taste of South American food, I knew that I had to check out the Argentinian restaurant San Telmo. Seeing as we would be having steak, I definitely hit up a steak loving friend and dropped by on a Wednesday night. We made a booking online and depending on what day you go, you may need to put in your credit card details to secure your booking. Oh, it does get busy so do make sure you make a booking. Now, back to the restaurant, located in an alleyway and opposite to a car park (park there for convenience guys!), you won’t miss the restaurant due to its big sign in front.
