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 [...]


Nataraj Cafe, Camberwell

by Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake on June 27, 2012

I did 2 things differently last night that I normally wouldn’t have done when I visit a restaurant. Number 1, I didn’t read Urbanspoon reviews and comments. Number 2 (which is probably the more important one) I didn’t even read the name of the restaurant until I finished eating! The first I wouldn’t call a [...]


My 2 unforgettable days in Daylesford, Part 2

by Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake on June 24, 2012

Following part 1 of my unforgettable 2 days at Regional Victoria’s spa town Daylesford and having dinner at the fabulous Farmers Arms, I was ready for another day of good food and good fun. Daylesford isn’t a big town by any means. If you’re looking for a lot to do then you’re probably wrong. But [...]


Basque Tapas & Wine, Prahran

by Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake on January 14, 2011

2010 was the first Christmas and New Year’s I’ve spent in Melbourne since more than 10 years ago. I had clearly forgotten how deserted the city was on Christmas Eve so organised with Yuye to spend some time together at a tapas restaurant that day. We drove around the whole CBD and couldn’t find anything [...]


Bar Bosh, Knox Shopping Centre

by Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake on November 8, 2010

It’s difficult to decide where to eat for lunch on a sunny Friday afternoon – there’s just too many choices! I decided to flip through my trusty Entertainment Book to find some inspiration and finally settled with Bar Bosh in the Knox Shopping Centre. This place doesn’t really stand out amongst all the bustling restaurants [...]


+39 Pizzeria, Lt Bourke St Melbourne

by Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake on November 3, 2010

+39 is my favourite pizza joint in Melbourne. It is also probably a favourite for many others as it has been voted The Best Pizzeria Of The Year 2010 in The Age Cheap Eats. It also has an interesting name – every time I went I wondered what it meant and recently I found out [...]

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 [...]
