I love crepes. I think many people would share my love for this French thin pancake which can be eaten sweet or savoury. When you talk about crepes in Melbourne, I think not many people would have heard of the name Breizoz, at least I haven’t until recently when I was looking for somewhere to […]…
When you think of the word ‘Hell’ in a restaurant name, usually it will conjure up imagery if fire, darkness, extremity and so forth. However, Hell of the North did not fit these imagery. Instead, it was more heaven, heaven for our bellies. The only hell I can think of is hell for food photographers, […]…
It’s always a shame when a well loved restaurant suddenly turns…not so good. As we work until fairly late on most nights, when we want to eat out there’s always not too many choices.

Tell me honestly, who here doesn’t like a good juicy meatball? Meat is a big part of my daily diet and although I also love my veggies, someone will have to pay me a LOT of money to become a vegetarian. The concept of a meatballs based restaurant isn’t the first in Melbourne, but instead […]…
Most of you who have been to Glen Waverley would probably agree that it doesn’t have a shortage of cafes, or Asian restaurants for that matter. I certainly didn’t expect this quaint hairdresser turned cafe to become the centre of the dining scene on Kingsway. It’s probably the most packed eatery you’d find at any […]…
