Do you like bagels? Well you gotta visit Manchester Press cafe off a little laneway called Rankins lane off Little Bourke St in between Elizabeth and Queen St. Before I say anything else, you need to try the ‘pulled pork bagel’ and the ‘mixed berry mascrapone with pistachio bagel’. My new favourite cafe.
On the weekend we were in the city with our nephew just in time for lunch. Because I’ve been looking for Melbourne’s best cafes we decided to take on Manchester Press. Someone tell me why these awesome hipster Melbourne cafe’s are all in alleyways? Luckily they don’t do dinner because some of these alleyways at night can be scary. Read more →
Fusion asian dishes, walk-in restaurant with no bookings except for one table of 10-12 people which means, waiting a long time to get a seat if you’re not there early. We went on a Friday night but some of the guys came late and at Chin Chin they won’t seat you unless the whole party is there. So we were told that the wait was 3hours. We were determined to dine at Chin Chin that night so we occupied ourselves for 3 hours and awaited a text message saying that our table was ready. We finally made it in and it did not disappoint.

South Melbourne boasts a number of cafes serving all day breakfasts, brunch and lunch menus and all the coffee you can consume in one sitting. Chez Dre is a must to try according to all the foodies and locals. Noisy atmosphere with outdoor and indoor seating, lovely decor and spacious seating which would suggest a family friendly place.

This is an old post but stuck in my ever growing draft folder. Although because of the buzz of St Ali South & North we had to check it out. Warehouse turned into a pretty nifty coffee house. Come at the wrong time and be prepared to wait in line. Read more →
We’ve always wanted to go South Korea and we knew we were gonna have so much fun that we decided to do it “Gangnam Styles” where ever we went. Checkout our “LearnerChef Style” video of our South Korea trip and also note this is Episode 1 of 2 because we couldn’t fit our whole trip into one. Hope you enjoy because we had a blast.
Here’s some places we visited that you’ll see on the video:

Here’s a quick highlight of our 2 day Vietnam stop over before we head to South Korea. So watch this space :)
The traffic is nuts in Vietnam, the food is amazing (pho, banh xeo (vietnamese pancakes), hotpots, etc), we love Vietnamese coffee, the weather is hot and muggy but we had an amazing time and got to see Jenny’s family which was extra special. Plus they spoilt us by picking us up and driving us everywhere and showing us all the local hot spots for food. Can’t wait to go back to Vietnam for a longer holiday in February next year for 4 weeks during the very festive season of Chinese New Year.
When I think Tea House, I think tea pots and tea bags so everytime I passed Oriental TeaHouse I didn’t stop to think they ever served food which they absolutely do. I would their food selections as yum-cha style servings and dumplings are their specialty.
