Sake Restaurant & Bar, Melbourne

by Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake on March 11, 2013

Monga Izakaya (sweets & sake bar), Glen Waverley

by Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake on January 15, 2013

It was not long ago that Yuye and I were discussing just what restaurants Glen Waverley needed. It’s starting to turn into Malaysia town with my favourite Hong Kong style cafe, Star East Cafe, closing not too long ago. What’s opening in its place I hear you ask? Pappa Rich that’s what.

At 5:30pm on [...]
