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 [...]


Movida Bar de Tapas, Melbourne CBD

by Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake on May 20, 2013

Melbourne’s a fascinating place. It’s full of arts and culture around every corner. 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 [...]


Pugg Mahones Irish Pub, Carlton

by Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake on November 25, 2012

As I’m the ‘foodie’ in the group, people always turn to me for suggestions and ideas on where to eat. But in actual fact, even though I am a ‘foodie’ I am quite indecisive. It always makes me nervous when they ask me these questions since what if my suggestions can’t live up to their [...]


Sette Bello, Glen Waverley

by Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake on October 29, 2012

I know Father’s Day was almost 2 months ago, I somehow subconsciously avoided blogging about the dinner I had together with my family and Yuye’s family that day until now. I blame it on the sheer number of dishes we ordered and the restaurant visits following that one, resulting in me pushing the review back…Yes [...]


La Gaulois French restaurant, Glen Waverley

by Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake on October 19, 2012

Do you find that sometimes people argue over the silliest and most unworthy things? Yuye and I hardly argue since he has a great temper (not me though but he lets me get my ways ) so whenever we do argue, it sticks in my head like gum on your shoes. There was this once [...]


Universal Restaurant, Carlton

by Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake on August 26, 2012

Are there restaurants where it always becomes default if you’re too lazy or just don’t know where you want to eat? There’s a few like that for me. One of them (probably not the best out there but is quite consistent) is Universal Restaurant on Lygon Street. It’s within walking distance from a friend’s place [...]


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 [...]


Seamus O’Toole’s Irish Pub, Wantirna South

by Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake on June 25, 2012

After being at university for a long 6 years, I often wonder what good actually came out of it, apart from finding a job of course. I hardly remember a lot of what I learnt in class and have since forgotten the names and faces of many classmates. Some became lifelong friends and many went [...]


The Hungarian, Richmond

by Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake on December 13, 2011

After our drinks at Der Raum the other night with WinWin, we decided to venture down the road to The Hungarian for dinner as Der Raum doesn’t have any nibbles. I’ve never had Hungarian food before (apart from the occasional non-traditional orders of goulash at not so Hungarian cafes around Melbourne) so I thought this [...]


Belgian Beer Cafe Bluestone, St Kilda

by Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake on December 3, 2011

  Have you ever felt utter frustration for something that can’t be changed? Even worse, having to endure it for many times over. Getting visas for China is one of those frustrating tasks that I loath but must do. The visa application centre used to be part of the Chinese Consulate in Toorak but in [...]
