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 [...]


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. I love Spring. [...]


Hogs Breath Cafe, Chadstone

by Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake on August 2, 2012

I’ve contemplated time and time again whether or not I should blog about this restaurant. The photos never turn out well because of the lighting and the food doesn’t look all that nice to photograph anyway. I tend to go there a lot because a friend of mine lives very close by and he absolutely [...]


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.


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 [...]


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 [...]


Mitre Tavern, Melbourne CBD

by Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake on January 6, 2012

I’ve never really liked farewell parties. They always made me sad as usually a friend is leaving for good. I don’t like saying goodbyes like most people wouldn’t. The other day I went to Ichi’s farewell dinner at Mitre Tavern, he’s an ex-colleague who gave me a lot of guidance in terms of where to [...]


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 [...]
