Mei Jing Chinese Restaurant is situated off the corner of Boronia Rd and Mountain Hwy in Wantirna.

Mabrown is a Malaysian/Chinese/Thai restaurant near the corner of Belmore Rd and Balwyn Rd in Balwyn.

So Masuya is where we had our first dinner, together with a few friends. Now, there was something I really regretted doing Read More
