Entrecôte

A nondescript restaurant hidden inside Alfred Place, entrecote was a cozy, relaxing place for dinner. The interior decor was simple and also featured various ‘moving’ portraits which were very intriguing, as they would alternate with each others’ frames throughout the meal. We ordered a few small sharing plates to try such as the top left […]

The French Brasserie

After a very ‘unusual’ craving for escargots, I found this restaurant online and managed to rope my cousin into trying it out with me – as well as satisfying my very specific craving. The main dish I was looking forward to – the escargots – were divine. The sauce was amazing and whilst my cousin […]

Masons of Bendigo

While visiting my sister’s placement in Bendigo, she booked us a dinner at Masons, citing that the food was good and as close to fine dining Bendigo offered. The restaurant was spacious and the layout allowed quite a number of tables without feeling like customers were rubbing elbows with one another. Masons on Bendigo’s menu […]

On Saturday, The Modern Eatery had their soft opening and therefore had everything (except desserts) on their menu at 50% off. A friend of mine who works there let us know and helped us get a booking for dinner that night. The atmosphere there was very relaxed and the food came at a nice leisurely […]
