Vegie bar

Bustling veggie/vegan restaurant located in Fitzroy which is definitely worth a visit. There are lots of tofu based meals but also a great selection for those who are more enticed by a meal they are familiar with that just happens to not contain meat/animal products while still having all the flavour. I opted for a …

Mamasita

Having had a random craving for Mexican food a friend and I did a quick search for a resturant in the CBD. We ended up having an early dinner at Mamasita. Arriving at the restaurant at around 5pm we presumed it would be fairly quiet. How wrong we were! It was packed. We were about …

Greetings of the card variety

Barlog

Went for brunch here as it recently opened nearby. Had these pancakes with lemon curd, blueberry compote, mascarpone, meringue, strawberries and fairy floss (candy floss). Unsurprisingly the sugar rush I had after them was intense. I had a flat white which was good but the turmeric latte I had tasted a bit like drinking neat …
