Quality noodles worth crossing the Yarra for.
On the 25th April 2010 we treated ourselves to lunch at Circa The Prince in St Kilda to celebrate JB’s birthday. I haven’t written the full post yet, I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to ask Chef Matt Wilkinson for the recipe for one of the dishes we ate that day, Chestnut soup. [...]

Griff’s wine pub has been quietly feeding the faithful for almost two years under it’s latest guise (let’s all try to forget about the Purple Turtle shall we?). On the corner of Johnston and Napier streets in Fitzroy, it’s a stylish [...]
