Coda

Taking a chance on a place that was rated well on Urbanspoon, my friends and I dropped by the inconspicuous (read: hard to find) asian fusion restaurant; Coda. Following google maps, the restaurant is located in a tiny alleyway with only a very nondescript sign on the side of the building as well as on […]

Vlado’s

A favourite of my brother’s, Vlado’s is a grilled steakhouse that has a set menu of which your only choices are which cut of meat you would like. Though it doesn’t seem so, the restaurant fits quite a number of customers however I would advise calling ahead to book if you choose to visit. Aside […]

The Spot on Melbourne

A cousin of mine pointed me to The Spot on Melbourne, asking for my thoughts on their soup as we had similar tastes and he claimed that this cafe had a pretty decent Pho on offer. He did, however, warn me beforehand that unlike the usual authentic-style huge portions at Vietnamese restaurants, TSoM served western-styled […]

Tonkatsu Maisen

Happened upon this place when exploring around our hotel in Shibuya, and ended up going back another 2 times during the same trip! Tonkatsu is one of my favourite dishes and Tonkatsu Maisen’s dishes are mouth-wateringly delicious. Most tonkatsu look more or less the same, however I did go with a kurobuta (black pork) hire […]

An Aussie staple, I usually go for their smash avo brunch, which is […]

EntrecĂ´te

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 […]

Soi 38

Found by my friend, Soi 38 is a restaurant serving thai boat noodles. However, unlike the iconic tiny boat noodle bowls in Thailand, these are normal sized portions. Regardless, they come really cheap at only $10 per bowl, or $15 for a large bowl! Clockwise from top left is the beef boat noodles, duck noodles, […]

Rice Paper Scissors

Finally managed to get some somewhat-decent photos from RPS on 2 separate trips (you can probably tell by the difference in qualities), one during dinner and one from lunch. A tapas-style restaurant, it’s a great way to try a variety of different dishes (and you can get 5 dishes for a good deal between 2-3 […]
