Melbourne’s graffiti filled lane ways is world renowned and one of the most celebrated of them all is Hosier Lane in the CBD. It houses some of the most colourful and well executed urban art you will find around and is also [...]

U-Village, St Kilda

by Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake on April 29, 2013

Most Asian restaurants I’ve been dining at recently have been fast food or close to it. There is one exception, and that’s U-Village in St Kilda. When I was given the chance to dine there as their guest, I was a little unsure as to what to expect, but I was very pleasantly surprised.

Sake Restaurant & Bar, Melbourne

by Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake on March 11, 2013

Since I started the liquor business I haven’t really had the time to visit the city much so I was enwrapped when I was invited to sample the menu at Sake Restaurant & Bar one summers night a few weeks ago at the newly revamped Hamer Hall at the Arts Centre.

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.

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

by Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake on October 28, 2012

Since I turned ‘foodie’, this has been happening a lot more, both for content purposes and since I’ve learnt to appreciate various cuisines and love the excitement of finding hidden gems. As a result of this constant trying of new places though also comes the occasional [...]

La Zuppa soup judging & $200 The Botanical voucher giveaway!

by Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake on September 3, 2012

Winter is officially over. We were greeted by fabulous Spring sunshine and cool but refreshing breezes that felt so good against my skin and suddenly I felt all my winter blues flying away with the breeze, along with the pollen that will now haunt hay fever sufferers in the months to come.

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.

Horoki Casual Dining & Bar, Melbourne CBD

by Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake on August 10, 2012

Those of you who have been reading my blog for a while would probably know that I’ve been to Japan quite a few times. I’m not sure why I keep going back there, even though my relatives and friends warn me about the dangers still lingering after the big Tokyo earthquake in 2011. Yuye and [...]

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.

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 [...]
