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 [...]


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 [...]


Taketori Fusion Japanese, Melbourne

by Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake on September 10, 2013

A few weeks back I was lucky enough to have been invited by Annie, co-owner of Taketori Japanese Fusion to dine at their newly established restaurant on busy King St. Whenever I hear ‘fusion’ I don’t know what to expect. It turns out that Taketori serves up fancy bistro style modern Japanese dishes, a little [...]


N2, time for some extreme gelato

by Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake on September 4, 2013

Have you been watching Masterchef on TV and getting annoyed that you can’t get hold of liquid nitrogen to make those awesome gelato? Do you squirm like a child (just a little bit of course) inside when you see the vapor pouring out of those bowls? Well, the good news is, ordinary people like us [...]


The Grain Store, Melbourne

by Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake on August 22, 2013

It seems just like yesterday that I started my shop and now it’s been more than half a year. How fast time flies. It has also been far too long since I stayed away from the blog but now that year end work is almost over, I can start to concentrate a bit of my [...]


Purple Peanuts Japanese Cafe, Melbourne

by Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake on July 29, 2013

In a city with no shortage of sushi joints, you’d need to have a point of difference to make it to the top. Purple Peanuts Japanese Cafe does this well.
