Miss Marmalade, Brunswick

by Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake on December 12, 2013

I have so much backlog it’s getting quite ridiculous. I have posts dating back a whole year that I still haven’t blogged about and I’m determined to get through them. One of these is actually a cafe that I really liked and have wanted to blog about for the longest time, I’m just not sure [...]


Dainty Sichuan Food, Box Hill – get some hot pot action

by Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake on December 7, 2013

After all these years I still haven’t been to the original Dainty Sichuan Restaurant in South Yarra. But to make up for it, I’ve dined at its sibling quite a few times already.


Food Republik, Box Hill

by Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake on December 5, 2013

I went through quite a few of the comments and reviews of this place on Urbanspoon and although agree that there is a bit of an ‘attitude’ and service can be turned up a notch, it is what the food that really matters I think. Yuye and I both quite like this place, especially their [...]


The Farm Cafe at Collingwood Children’s Farm, Abbotsford

by Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake on December 1, 2013

Summer is finally upon us! Even though it felt like winter just not too long ago. Whenever a trickle of sunshine sneaks out behind those thick clouds, everyone comes out of their shells and come to the shop for an icy cold beer. It’s amazing what the sunshine brings – smiles! But for me, there’s [...]


Appliances Online’s 8th Birthday celebration!

by Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake on November 28, 2013

Do you like to hoard kitchen appliances? Do you have a lot of seemingly useless appliances that you never use but just bought it because they were cool? I am one of those and that was inherited from my mother. Between us, we have multiples of toasters, rice cookers, pressure cookers, blenders, milkshake makers, ice [...]


Piatella Cafe, Glen Waverley

by Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake on November 20, 2013

Most of you who have been to Glen Waverley would probably agree that it doesn’t have a shortage of cafes, or Asian restaurants for that matter. I certainly didn’t expect this quaint hairdresser turned cafe to become the centre of the dining scene on Kingsway. It’s probably the most packed eatery you’d find at any [...]


Taste of Melbourne 2013, preview at Longrain

by Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake on November 13, 2013

Time has just gone by so fast this year and it’s already time for the 2013 Taste of Melbourne! In fact, it runs from 14 – 17 November 2013 (which starts tomorrow!). Like last year, this year’s ToM will be held at Albert Park. A few weeks ago, I had the privilege to attend a [...]


I miss you Sydney

by Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake on November 2, 2013

In fact, it’s not just Sydney I miss, it’s all things travel related. It feels like forever since I last went on a holiday, even longer since I last went to Sydney (this was just more than a year ago now). I had wanted to post up these photos a long long time ago, at [...]


Puro Fairtrade Coffee

by Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake on October 31, 2013

There’s something about the smell and taste of coffee that’s just simply irresistible. If you’re not a coffee drinker, you might not understand, but I just can’t go past a good coffee if I know it’s there. So when I was contacted by Puro Fairtrade Coffee to review their coffee beans, I was quick to [...]


Dairy Farmers Thick & Creamy yoghurt relaunch event

by Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake on October 15, 2013

This post is sponsored by Nuffnang. Finally we’re getting a bit of well deserved sunshine! This beautiful weather makes me feel like I should be eating healthier and getting up earlier in the mornings. Something I haven’t done for quite some time. It came at a great time too as Dairy Farmers Thick & Creamy [...]
