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!
Catching up with the K sisters meant another feast at a middle eastern restaurant so we always made sure we have our eating pants on. Our next food destination? Rumi, located in East Brunswick. Walking in, you’ll be greeted by friendly staff and an atmosphere that just relaxes you and puts you in the mood for some partying. So of course we sat down, and flicked through the drinkies menu because you can’t have a party without any cocktails, am I right?
Miznon was born in Jerusalem and has opened many branches around the world including Paris, New York and now they’ve opened one up in Melbourne. Serving up Middle Eastern food locating in Hardware Lane, you know this place will be pumping. We got there super early (5:15PM on a Friday to be exact) and there were only a few tables that had customers but that didn’t deter us, we plopped ourselves down by the kitchen bar and the food started to come in.
The Creative couple were in town and we decided to take them to Herd Bar & Cafe for lunch. We made a booking on a Sunday but it wasn’t really busy at all so we didn’t really need to make a booking. Nonetheless, we went inside and the staff were super duper friendly and the decor was just suave and very intimate. We were shown to our table and my gosh the options looked oh so delish.
Having missed out on the Souk Spring Menu Launch, I was ecstatic to be asked to try out the menu when I was available (YAYERS!). Anywho, we searched for Souk and it was hidden away but you can definitely spot it’s neon sign a mile away. We walked in and BAM, we were hit with a beautiful decor, a bar in the front and a dining area upstairs. We were greeted by the friendly staff and got to our seats ready for food galore!
Limor’s is a name for those who live around the Caulfield North area will know well. Having been around for over 20 years and serving up huge portions of Middle Eastern food, they certainly have made a name for themselves. Now, fast forward to now, Limor’s has exchanged hands and management and is now run by Yoram who wants to make Limor’s even more spectacular than before.
Dress shopping was on the agenda with the two stooges (ARGH!) and so we were on Sydney Road. After the first appointment, we were recommended by the staff to drop by Lux Foundry for brunch so that’s exactly what we did. We ventured out and battled against the strong Melbourne winds and found Lux Foundary, just across the train tracks.
It was time to catch up with the K sisters and Miss Pear and today it was brunch at their favourite Lebanese brunch place – zaatar on Sydney Road in Coburg. Unfortunately, Miss Pear wasn’t able to make it so it was a double date with the K sisters. The K sisters got there first and got a table by the window. Mr D and I got there and Miss Candy and Mr D went up to order a brunch feast (if I get any of the food wrong, my apologies since all I did was eat HOHOHO!). When they came back, the table numbers were on wooden spoons which was so adorable!
Catching up with the gang meant we could go wherever we please. Mr Burberry strongly suggested Shane Delia’s middle eastern one hatted restaurant – Maha. So of course I made the reservations for a Saturday night to indulge in good food. Maha is tucked away in an alley way and you wouldn’t even know it’s there unless you’re looking for it.
