Glen Waverley

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 [...]


Monga Izakaya (sweets & sake bar), Glen Waverley

by Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake on January 15, 2013

It was not long ago that Yuye and I were discussing just what restaurants Glen Waverley needed. It’s starting to turn into Malaysia town with my favourite Hong Kong style cafe, Star East Cafe, closing not too long ago. What’s opening in its place I hear you ask? Pappa Rich that’s what. So hence my [...]


Sette Bello, Glen Waverley

by Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake on October 29, 2012

I know Father’s Day was almost 2 months ago, I somehow subconsciously avoided blogging about the dinner I had together with my family and Yuye’s family that day until now. I blame it on the sheer number of dishes we ordered and the restaurant visits following that one, resulting in me pushing the review back…Yes [...]


La Gaulois French restaurant, Glen Waverley

by Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake on October 19, 2012

Do you find that sometimes people argue over the silliest and most unworthy things? Yuye and I hardly argue since he has a great temper (not me though but he lets me get my ways ) so whenever we do argue, it sticks in my head like gum on your shoes. There was this once [...]


The Black Toro, Glen Waverley

by Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake on August 19, 2012

Can you believe that there’s another new(ish) addition to the already jam packed Kingsway dining scene in Glen Waverley Called The Black Toro? At least this time, it’s a type of cuisine that’s completely different to what we’re used to – Mexican/Spanish tapas.


Zest 89, Glen Waverley

by Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake on June 1, 2012

Kingsway in Glen Waverley isn’t just famous for their Asian influenced cuisines like I mentioned in Straits of Malacca, but also for its cafes. Amongst many good coffee joints and great breakfasts, there is Mocha Jo’s, Coco Lounge and Zest 89. I actually visited Zest 89 some time ago late at night and we had [...]


Straits of Malacca, Glen Waverley

by Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake on May 31, 2012

Glen Waverley is really turning into a hub for good food and good fun. Everyone – foodies and non-foodies alike – are flocking here to eat, have fun and buy houses. This of course is driving up property prices, making it near impossible for people like myself to afford a place, and making parking even [...]


Coco Lounge, Glen Waverley

by Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake on February 3, 2012

It’s strange how lethargic I’ve felt in the last few days. Yuye and I packed on Sunday, all ready to take a flight to China last Monday night but plans changed yet again and we’re now scheduled to head to the airport in less than 3 hours. When I found out I couldn’t leave Monday [...]


Kingsway Seafood Restaurant, Glen Waverley – getting ready for CNY!

by Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake on January 21, 2012

I mentioned in a previous post that I don’t post about Chinese restaurants even though that makes up half of my dining experiences and I’ve finally realised why. Every time we go to Chinese restaurants, it’s with my parents. My dad is quite against me taking photos of food. He thinks it’s rude to the [...]


Saigon Light, Glen Waverley – can’t get enough of fish sauce!

by Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake on January 4, 2012

I remember horror stories about fish sauce. This was back in my high school days when carrying water guns loaded with fish sauce to squirt people during muck up day/week was considered cool. It was a period of time when not going to school because I got egged by year 12 kids was not really [...]
