Best Brunch in South Melbourne

Where to Find The Best Brunch in South Melbourne

South Melbourne is seriously spoiled when it comes to eating and drinking, with more than its fair share of cafes, tiny owner-operated restaurants, specialty wine stores and old world pubs. At the centre of it all is the famous South Melbourne Market, full of fresh produce and street food. After living in the area for two years I’ve definitely put the cafe scene through its … Continue reading Where to Find The Best Brunch in South Melbourne

Vegan Brunch in Melbourne: Matcha Mylk Bar, St Kilda

If you’d told me a year ago that I’d wait 30+ minutes for brunch at a vegan cafe, I would have choked on my poached eggs. I’m pretty dependent on a classic flat white + poached eggs + avocado combo on a Saturday morning, but I was rewarded when we branched out for a super healthy brunch in St Kilda at Matcha Mylk Cafe on … Continue reading Vegan Brunch in Melbourne: Matcha Mylk Bar, St Kilda

The Spotted Pig West Village NYC

My first Michelin Star: A burger at The Spotted Pig, NYC

My first Michelin Star dining experience was eating a burger. Admittedly, this wasn’t in a fast food joint, but at The Spotted Pig, a very popular gastropub in New York’s West Village. It was the most expensive burger I’ve ever had, but presumably, it will be my cheapest Michelin meal. I only have a handful of photos from this evening, and most of them make … Continue reading My first Michelin Star: A burger at The Spotted Pig, NYC

Balthazar NYC: Where Paris meets New York

Paris and New York. My two favourite cities, two great rivals. Can you think of anywhere that inspires love-hate relationships like these two? Or tops as many bucket lists? Or inspires as many books? Their similarities and differences have even inspired a book of their own! Love them or hate them, you can’t deny that they’re a power couple. When I was in New York, … Continue reading Balthazar NYC: Where Paris meets New York

A Sunset Cruise on NYC’s Floating Lobster Shack

New York City is notoriously expensive. The city wages a war on your wallet from the second you touch down at JFK and doesn’t let up till Manhattan is a blip on the horizon. Which is why I can’t believe that one of my favourite experiences in New York City, a sunset cruise along the Hudson, was basically free. I caught up with an American … Continue reading A Sunset Cruise on NYC’s Floating Lobster Shack

Brunch & Boating in Central Park

Summer is slowly fading in New York City, so I’m glad that I spent Sunday morning making the most of the clear blue skies and sunshine in Central Park. We hired a boat and spent some time on the lake, before brunch overlooking the water at the Loeb Boathouse. Simple, but it was one of my favourite experiences in New York City. Central Park is … Continue reading Brunch & Boating in Central Park

Chew with a view: Nyshry at South Melbourne Beach

After a bitterly cold week, including the coldest morning in Melbourne in EIGHTEEN YEARS, Melbourne turned on the charm and worked its way back into my good books. My sister was in town (big yay!), so we met our uncles Matt & Thomas for lunch on South Melbourne Beach. It was still cold, but it was so much more bearable under beautiful blue skies! South Melbourne Beach … Continue reading Chew with a view: Nyshry at South Melbourne Beach
