matsumoto brunswick east review

Matsumoto Brunswick East is a stalwart in this part of town. Open since 2003, we have driven past countless times but have never gone in for a meal. One Friday evening we found ourselves at home, tired and hungry for something so decided to give this local Japanese restaurant a

Gu-E Brunswick caught our eye a few months ago while driving up Sydney Road. Despite the increase in restaurants and bars in Brunswick over the past few years, on thing that has remained the same is the lack of good Asian food in the area. When we saw that a

ironbark bbq kustom kommune collingwood review

Ironbark BBQ at Kustom Kommune Collingwood (or “Easey Street Smoke Out” as it’s been dubbed) is the latest semi-permanent location for David Barron and Paul Hammond’s American BBQ business. Baron and Hammond might be new to this spot but they’ve been a part of Melbourne’s American BBQ scene for a

MELBOURNE | Maedaya Richmond is a bustling Japanese izakaya which can be found on Bridge Road and has built up quite the reputation over the years. We’re always a little cautious of Japanese restaurants as they tend to fall short of expectations. This can be blamed on visiting Japan where every place you go

The French Milk Bar Brunswick is a slice of France that’s opened up just off Lygon Street. The City Lane has had an eye on this place ever since the outdoor signage and covered-up windows indicated that something was happening on the site several months ago. As you’d expect, we

botherambo richmond review

Botherambo Richmond is the latest venture from Nathan Peck and expectations were high before it even opened thanks the savvy recruiting of Kam McManamey (formerly of Elwood’s Dandelion and South Wharf’s BangPop) as head chef.

milk the cow carlton review

Milk The Cow Carlton is younger, north of the river sibling of Daniel Verheyen’s St Kilda late night licensed fromagerie. Seating 80 people over 2 levels, the charming, narrow space has a very French bistro feel about it, with over 150 cheeses and a variety of alcoholic beverages on offer. The main focus

grand trailer park taverna melbourne review

Grand Trailer Park Taverna Melbourne is one of the latest places to open in Melbourne that offers up the very on trend American “dirty food”. There have been a lot of these sorts of places opening up over the past year and with claims of “one of Melbourne’s best burgers”
