Henry and the Fox, Melbourne

by Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake on December 13, 2012

I realised I’ve left writing about Henry and the Fox until a bit too late. Their entire menu had changed since my visit but it would be such a waste to not blog about the place that I decided I’d go ahead and write about my experiences anyway. I might write an updated post after [...]


Lucky Coq, Windsor – seriously cheap and delicious pizzas

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.


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 [...]


Little Creatures Dining Hall, Fitzroy

by Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake on June 14, 2012

Like I mentioned in my last post, after visiting Huxtaburger we headed straight to LIttle Creatures Dining Hall and for me and Yuye, it was basically a second lunch. Little Creatures made me ponder about life. The restaurant is literally a huge warehouse. It’s the biggest cafe I’ve been to and might be the biggest [...]


D.O.C Pizza & Mozzarella Bar, Carlton

by Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake on May 26, 2012

I mentioned that the queue at Mamasita is one of the worst in Melbourne, but yet the wait that night was not even a quarter of the wait at D.O.C Pizza and Mozzarella Bar in Carlton. There’s a good reason for that. We went to D.O.C. on a busy Friday night at 7pm without a [...]


Piccolino Pizza Restaurant, Mount Waverley

by Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake on January 10, 2012

Ever since I was small, I loved watching documentaries. I’d get mesmerised by the deep soothing voices coming out of the TV and the mysterious happenings that I could not understand. I especially liked unsolved cases such as Marilyn Monroe’s death and what the true meaning of Mona Lisa’s smile was. I would often look [...]


Airstream Cafe, Glen Waverley – a disappointment

by Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake on December 29, 2011

  Airstream Cafe, you disappoint me. I’ve been a long time customer because of the close proximity to home and I never thought it was such a bad place to enjoy a good catchup or a quick meal. That is, until Christmas day.     It was a boiling hot day and I was running [...]


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 [...]


Fiorini’s, Toorak

by Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake on December 15, 2010

We were after a quick meal near Jeff’s school just before his concert the other night and a family friend suggested Fiorini’s on Toorak Rd. It serves traditional Italian dishes such as pizza and pasta but also offers steaks and other mains if that’s what you fancy. The friend said she goes there all the [...]


Cafe Trevi, Lygon St Carlton

by Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake on December 6, 2010

I want to go to a nice pizza place for lunch” Jeff (my younger brother) said when I picked him up from the airport after a week of sun and fun at schoolies in the Gold Coast. I decided Lygon St might be a good place to start. Yuye suggested trying a new place this [...]
