REVIEW

What should you do on a bright and sunny spring weekend? Of course, you kick start the day with a good ol’ brunch! There’s a new kid on the scene in Richmond, Niche on Bridge.

We were greeted by friendly staff at the door and shown to a table swiftly. The menu was extensive and  we were spoilt for choice. Not to forget, they serve their breakfast menu until 5pm, so for those late risers, you are in for a treat. (more…)

REVIEW

Those who have been to the National Gallery of Victoria, in short, NGV, would know that it takes quite some time to go through the vast collections of exhibits. What is best to do when you want to take a break and rest your feet? Some afternoon tea would be great, did I hear an unanimous yes?!

Sorry for the long hiatus from my blog. I have been rather busy with work, house moving and many other factors in life. A big ‘thank you’ to everyone for your continual support! HAPPY NOMING…

So, first up:

REVIEW

German food is kind of something that I rarely have. So flipping through the entertainment book, we realised that we have a voucher for Hofbrauhaus yet to be utilised!

H is situated opposite of Shoya and Flowerdrum on Market Lane. They are currently open for business in the new wing while renovation work is underway on the old site which is just next door! Once entering the main door, you could hear the lively music playing upstairs while the bar operates on the lower level. (more…)

Hotel Windsor has been hailed as the ‘IT’ place for afternoon teas and it has been serving up such finery since 1883! Amazing huh. So, when there was a Scoopon promotion recently, I grasped the chance and got myself a coupon to indulge in some long awaited delicacy. (more…)

REVIEW

Ramen Ya has been on the top of my list all this time while I search high and low for some good old authentic Japanese ramen. To my amazement this year, while walking along Lonsdale Street, I came across Kokoro Ramen. It is a swanky new Japanese ramen store with an interesting range and variety of ramen and soup bases (just like how they do it in Japan!). With this new kid on the block, I reckon the older establishments are having a run for their money. (more…)
