Crabapple Kitchen trip to Burgundy

Was at Friday Night Flights at Crabapple Kitchen for the trip to Burgundy.  We googled the food of Burgundy before the night and we pretty much got Burgundy’s greatest hits for the dinner.   It was amazing, as always!  Great value for money, good wine and great service. Started with delicious “Gougeres – little savoury … Continue reading

Remarkable dishes at Sepia

Was in Sydney for a weekend trip to celebrate a friends birthday and the celebration dinner was held at Sepia.  Quite a prestigious little place, restaurant of the year and three hats.  Had the degustation with matching wine, and in hindsight, each dish was amazingly complex.  And the degustation was very well harmonised and built … Continue reading

Jacques Reymond… over overindulgence…

Decided that winter in Melbourne is too dreary and that I needed some “highlights” to get me through. Hence, we decided to have an extra special date night at Jacques Reymond. Last time I was at Jacques it was about 4-5 years ago, and I remember the first time as being excellent. This time round, … Continue reading


Went for a group dinner to Dandelion and chose to have the 7 course menu aptly named “The Sea”.   The description attached to the menu was “Vietnam has 3260 km of perse coastline. This menu is a seafood lovers dream. Luxury and quirky ingredients, simply and lovingly prepared”. As we are all foodie gluttons, we also … Continue reading

ezard, an Oldie but a Goodie

Dined at ezard for my birthday this year, and gotta say, I was a bit worried that the restaurant might have dated but was pleasantly surprised.  Last time I dined here was about 4 years ago and whilst the menu stays true to it’s original style,  you can see/taste the newly incorporated elements.  Had degustation … Continue reading

Amazing food at Cutler & Co.

I was totally blown away by how great dinner was at Cutler & Co.  Whilst many rave about  it, I had my reservations as my first and only visit years ago was very average.   Perhaps back then it was opening month and they were still sorting out teething issues.  My boyfriend booked it in for … Continue reading

Ten Minutes by Tractor

Ten Minutes by Tractor is a gorgeous winery with a modern restaurant facing the hillside in which the vines grow.  Was there in summer for my mom’s birthday dinner, and it was an outstanding meal all around.   Each course was matched with a perfect wine from the winery.  As you can see from the … Continue reading

Dining at the #3 Restaurant in the World: Mugaritz, San Sebastian

We were in San Sebastian in September 2012 and paid a visit to the #3 restaurant in the world, Mugaritz .  The restaurant is a short drive out of San Sebastian, and as the party got into the cabs and headed up the hills, were heady with anticipation.   The scenery around the restaurant is breathtaking – … Continue reading

The Commoner… not so common!

Another visit to the north of the CBD takes me to The Commoner.   Had not heard a thing about this place, and had no idea what to expect so was thrilled to be served delicious food at an exceedingly reasonable price.   Like Estelle Bar & Kitchen, it was such a delightful surprise! We were … Continue reading

Loam… Amazing!

Got taken to Loam for my birthday!  It was truly spectacular!  Beautiful countryside, great looking restaurant,  great service and sensational food!  Some of the food combos were mind blowing, and they were all well balanced and enhanced the flavour of the key ingredient. The menu has an interesting format, in that they have a list … Continue reading
