If you’ve been to the amazing Cicio Cacio in Newtown, Franziska in Seatoun then opened, followed by Bastardo in Tory St. They are all so different, you wouldn’t have any idea they are related. Continue reading
6th visit to Melbourne and this time blogging was my purpose, with a wee spot of shopping and sightseeing thrown in for good measure. My eatathon will be one I won’t forget quickly and has set the scene for future visits.
We popped in here to join a friend for a Sunday lunch and were wowed by the Mediterranean Foods in Newtown ‘s makeover. It’s now a deli, restaurant and pizzeria and it’s fantastic with authentic Italian staff. Continue reading
I always laugh when I hear the name Toulouse, as my French-Canadian tutor used to say “that’s where the All Blacks go to lose!” Hardy ha ha. Ahem that was some time ago.
Our GPS had the most dire French pronunciation that made us laugh, however it always too us directly to a restaurant address for lunch, as you know that’s a priority for me.

I didn’t know which way to turn, as I didn’t want to miss a thing. Everything looked and smelled so delicious, and I could have eaten and drunk my way through the entire shop; from chocolates to cheeses, meats, fish, vegetables, wines plus there is amazing kitchenware to purchase.
