What’s up in the North?

Back in my uni days, I spent much time eating, especially in the CBD and inner suburbs (Fitzroy, Carlton, North Melbourne). Nowadays, working full time means I'm a lot lazier on the weekends and would prefer to eat somewhere local. By local - I mean about 20 minutes out. Still - things are slowly coming out to the 'burbs ...

Dexter Melbourne

There has long been a bitterness inside me, at the potential of Preston, but the lack of quality eateries. I mean besides the cheap, satisfying Asian meals. I have often felt like areas like High St need something refreshing. My prayers have been answered with Dexter, a new meatery and bar, easily found if you look out for ...

Jackson Dodds

Jackson Dodds has been on my list for a while, as it seems a popular place on my side of town and is conveniently not far from my hairdressers. It's quite small, thus is usually packed - a good sign. We were seated at a bench as there were no tables. This allowed us time to peruse the menu, settle in and even ...

Maharaja Tandoori Cuisine: A Menulog Delivery

Recently I was invited to sample and review Australia's number one online takeaway system Menulog. I was given a voucher and paid for the remainder of my meal. The website is quite straightforward and easy to use. From the homepage all you need to do is type in your suburb - I typed in Lalor as I was eating at a ...
