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 [...]


Lip Cafe, Ivanhoe

by Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake on June 7, 2013

The days are getting shorter and darkness is upon us a lot earlier now. By 5pm the Sun starts to hide and I can just tell that the customers are rushing home before darkness arrives. The cold morning air and gusts of wind that come through the door is proof that Winter is well and [...]


The Green Refectory, Brunswick

by Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake on November 18, 2012

Ever since I turned foodie, my liking for all things vintage has soared through the roof, to the point where I wanted my whole house decorated with ancient furnishings and decorations collected from op shops and junk yards.

The B.East, Brunswick East – burgers and loud music

As a result of this constant trying of new places though also comes the occasional [...]


Beatbox Kitchen, Melbourne’s very own burger truck

Pope Joan, Brunswick East

by Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake on August 28, 2012

Have you ever tried copy and pasting a word 20 times into Google Translate and making the AI repeat it in different languages? If you haven’t, you might not want to try it as it drove me up the wall when Yuye did that a few weeks ago using the words ‘Pope Joan’. I found [...]


Laksa King, Flemington

by Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake on September 30, 2010

It’s been years since I last went to the Melbourne Show, in fact, I believe I’ve only ever been twice. Since I just got my 550D about two weeks ago, I decided to try it out at a slightly more crowded place to hone my photo-taking skills. Before embarking on my first photo adventure with [...]
