Unabara, Melbourne Central

Unabara Lobster and Oyster bar has two locations in the Melbourne CBD. We were invited to review the Melbourne Central restaurant but you can find them in the Emporium too. The thing I love about Unabara is that you can stop to eat LOBSTER!!! midway through shopping for jeans. How lux is that? We visitedContinue reading “Unabara, Melbourne Central”

Papirica

Have you been to Japan recently and found yourself addicted to okonomiyaki? Only to find that on your return back home, you couldn’t find a restaurant that made a proper one? Your search has ended.

Bincho Boss

As someone who loves to try new restaurants and eats out quite often, one of the major things I look for in an eatery is the concept of value. A good value dining experience means a returning customer, i.e: me. Good value doesn’t mean cheap. It means, the quality of my experience matches what IContinue reading “Bincho Boss”

Fukuryu ramen, CBD.

There is nothing better than a bowl of hot ramen on a cold Melbourne night. Fukuryu ramen is up some stairs on Corrs Lane. It is loud and buzzing, and busy busy busy.

We were doing some shopping last weekend and happened upon Tokyo PopContinue reading “Tokyo Pop (Yoyogi) @ Emporium, CBD.”

You know that place you go to when you have had a bad day, or just can’t be stuffed going somewhere new?Continue reading “Yoyogi, CBD.”

Mr Miyagi

My lovely FiancĂ©e and I had a date here the other night. The atmosphere was buzzing and the place was super busy. We had a booking and didn’t have to wait, unlike the people lined up to enter as we were leaving. Mr. Miyagi is popular! We were approached by a waiter as soon asContinue reading “Mr Miyagi”

Natsumi, New York.

On my US trip, I decided to let Yelp guide me to the best food places in the area I was currently in, rather than planing my trip around the food. Therefore, one night before seeing a show in the Theatre District in New York, Yelp lead us to this delightful Japanese restaurant, which weContinue reading “Natsumi, New York.”

Japanese food adventures.

While I’m out and about, I tend to eat a lot of Japanese food as snacks. Here are some of the places I have been to recently, which haven’t been properly explored to allow for entire blog posts to be dedicated to each of them, but still require a mention! Akachochin A late night snackContinue reading “Japanese food adventures.”
