Hogs Breath Cafe, Chadstone

by Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake on August 2, 2012

I’ve contemplated time and time again whether or not I should blog about this restaurant. The photos never turn out well because of the lighting and the food doesn’t look all that nice to photograph anyway. I tend to go there a lot because a friend of mine lives very close by and he absolutely [...]


Servery & Spoon, Malvern East

by Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake on May 30, 2012

As much as I love my brother, sometimes receiving calls from him can get a bit daunting. His calls usually mean he needs me to pick him up from somewhere, take him to somewhere or he needs some other sort of favour. Sometimes where he needs to go is quite far. Sometimes I do get [...]


Coin Laundry Cafe, Armadale

by Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake on February 19, 2012

I knew I was going to miss western food and coffee even before I came to Beijing. I’ve been craving and craving but the 2 coffees I’ve had here so far were both terrible beyond description. I’m glad my stomach managed to partly stock up on caffeine and eggs before the trip but I was [...]


Bashuge Traditional Szechuan Restaurant, Carnegie

by Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake on December 19, 2011

I’ve noticed that I have a subconscious aversion to writing about Chinese restaurants and Chinese food, even though it’s the type of cuisine I eat the most (being Chinese and all). I have many photos from Chinese restaurants in my backlog but every time I look at them, I somehow get discouraged and don’t feel [...]


Maguro Japanese Restaurant, Chadstone – fantastic tonkotsu ramen!!

by Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake on September 16, 2011

One of the few things that can brighten up my day instantly is none other than unexpectedly finding a fantastic restaurant. After brief discussions in the car on the way to a friend’s house the other day, Yuye suggested “let’s just eat somewhere close and on the way”. I was going to pull over at [...]


L’Olivo, East Malvern

by Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake on July 6, 2011

Are you a person who likes to order everything on the menu? I know I do and I do it all the time. At the conclusion of every meal when I order too much, I tell Yuye to stop me next time so I don’t make the same mistake again. But you know what? It’s [...]


Bombay By Night, Caulfield South

by Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake on November 15, 2010

We went to Bombay By Night for a friend’s birthday recently and I was quite interested to see what it was like since this restaurant has been on The Age Good Food Guide every year since 1996 (except 1998 and 1999, I don’t know what happened there). The first thing we noticed about the place [...]


Asakusa, East Malvern

by Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake on October 26, 2010

We walked passed Asakusa on the way to MSY a few weeks ago and since then, we’ve been for dinner twice. I can’t believe I’ve never noticed this restaurant earlier despite it being on the Age Cheap Eats every year since 2006.     It is located near the corner of busy Waverley Rd and [...]


Remy, Malvern

by Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake on October 5, 2010

A few weeks ago Y and I were lost as to where to have dinner (this happens quite a lot actually). Instead of going through the Entertainment Book this time, we decided to go on a little adventure down Glenferrie Road. Our adventurous hearts brought us to Remy in Malvern. The full name of this [...]
