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.

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.
