Hunters’ Roots

A quaint little lunch spot located near Flinders station, I saw some interesting pictures of their meals and decided to give it a try. They use a fill-in system for orders due to their highly customized menu options. They also had a variety of juices and mixes available which were really yummy. Basically the entire […]

He did, however, warn me beforehand that unlike the usual authentic-style huge portions at Vietnamese restaurants, TSoM served western-styled […]
