Jacques Reymond, Prahran – a 3 hatted affair

by Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake on August 7, 2012

Some of you might know that it was Yuye and I’s 8 year anniversary a few weeks ago since we first started dating. It’s really been a long and hectic ride at times but we passed the ’7 year myth’ so hopefully we’ll be blessed from now on. The 7 year myth was passed on [...]


Massive Wieners, Prahran

by Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake on July 28, 2012

Yuye and I faced yet another day of undecidedness this week. Specifically, we weren’t sure where we could go for lunch before I started my first styling class at RMIT. As we were heading into inner city, the choices exponentially increased. Then we remembered. Wasn’t there a place we wanted to dine at last time [...]


Lucky Coq, Windsor – seriously cheap and delicious pizzas

by Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake on July 17, 2012

I’ve been finding myself at the busy Chapel St junction a lot recently. With David’s just off Chapel and Borsch Vodka & Tears around the corner, our next dining spot was at Lucky Coq which is right on the corner of the intersection for some seriously cheap pizzas and beers.


David’s Restaurant, Prahran & Zhou Zhuang (China) travel photos

by Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake on July 13, 2012

Since I’m from Shanghai, “how does Shanghainese food differ from other Chinese cuisine?” has been a question that many people have asked me before. After some thought I’ve come up with the conclusion that Shanghainese food tend to be a bit sweeter, some dishes a bit more sour, not as oily or chilli than other [...]


Borsch Vodka and Tears, Prahran

by Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake on July 9, 2012

When the weather is cold, what can be better than chowing down a big hearty plate of Russian inspired goulash or a glass of top notch imported vodka cocktail? The answer is when they go together! On a cold Melbourne evening not so long ago (just last week) that is becoming ever so familiar, Yuye [...]


Dukes Coffee, Windsor, are you ready for perfect coffee and poached eggs?

by Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake on January 24, 2012

Sometimes food just speak for themselves. It’s especially so on a sunny afternoon at a beautiful coffee and brunch place in a trendy part of town. I feel like food is better when I get to take beautiful photos too. Is that too biased for a foodie? I apologise if it is but it’s not [...]


3 Double 2, Prahran

by Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake on June 28, 2011

Prahran Market is one of my favourite fresh produce markets to visit. Although not that big, it has a large variety to browse and choose from, not to mention, it houses the awesome Essential Ingredient shop. I obviously can’t afford to buy a lot of the things in the store (such as fresh truffles…), but [...]


Ice Cafe, Prahran

by Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake on June 24, 2011

When I was a little girl, I had a dream of living in an igloo, being friends with a bunch of eskimos and go dog sledding around the snowy hills outside. But problem after problem surfaced that the kid me had to finally give up that dream. How in the world do I survive in [...]


Basque Tapas & Wine, Prahran

by Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake on January 14, 2011

2010 was the first Christmas and New Year’s I’ve spent in Melbourne since more than 10 years ago. I had clearly forgotten how deserted the city was on Christmas Eve so organised with Yuye to spend some time together at a tapas restaurant that day. We drove around the whole CBD and couldn’t find anything [...]


Chez Olivier Le Bistro, Prahran

by Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake on November 18, 2010

Yuye took me to Chez Olivier Le Bistro in Prahran for my birthday the other week (I know, I had a lot of birthday dinners, another one with my family to come ). Chez Olivier is set amongst art and fashion stores on a small street in Prahran (near the Prahran Station), it really does [...]
