Favourite Restaurants.

Chin Chin
Consistently Good, Great Service, You can’t get passed the Haramasa King Fish & the Beef Rendang!
Middle Park Hotel
Biased I know, The Woodfire just changes the dynamics of the beef. Paired with an eclectic dining room & some of the best produce Australia has to offer in a relaxed atmosphere. Why would it not be on my list.
Osteria Illeria
I have a thing for fresh pasta & Great Produce.
This ticks the boxes. Beautiful site, Not too big, Great service, Fab
wine list.

Favourite takeaway

Master Roll Vietnam in South Yarra.
The Bahn Mi is so good. @ $8 you cannot beat it!

Favourite late night eat

Ling Nan
This one is a tough one , I have to still pay homage to Ling Nan in China Town, Unfortunately they closed after the last lockdown. The pink decor & Harsh service didn’t take away from the comfort food. It actual made quite a charming, Unique experience.

Favourite cheap eats.

The Mekong
In Melbourne City, The Pork Vermicelli is an absolute ripper. I love it!
