Day of the Dead, St Kilda

An established cocktail bar located inside The George, in the heart of St Kilda, this place probably doesn’t really need any introductions. Serving feisty cocktails, and providing a comprehensive menu of Mexican and Spanish  tapas, this is a favorite haunt of many locals.  

Flautus, which are hand rolled puff pastry cigars, filled with fire roasted capsicum, black beans, cheese and jalapeƱos, are a must try! Precisely cooked for a little bit of crunch and served with a drizzle of balsamic reduction, these are insanely addictive and go down a treat with any alcohol of choice.

Shimbu, Brunswick

Shimbu​ is the new restaurant and bar by the same family who had previously owned and operated Wild Yak.  Shimbu in Tibetan means delicious as well as highly pleasing to the senses. 

Shimbu brings a unique collection of traditional and modern Tibetan dishes to Brunswick. We were lucky to have the opportunity to sample a huge variety of dishes showcasing a range of delicious flavors and ingredients.

Our favorite were the tasty lamb ribs which were lightly crumbed and gently cooked to provide enough crunch whilst keeping the meat juicy and succulent. The curries were also really wonderful and T was especially a fan of the tofu curry.

Pepper Lunch, Hawthorn

Peppper Lunch is one of my favorite QSR chains for its convenience, deliciousness, and affordability. The menu is an amalgamation of Japanese, Korean, and Chinese flavours, which combined is somewhat reminiscent of a Hong Kong diner. 

Popular with students, office workers, and families, Pepper Lunch has something for everyone. Most of the dishes are served on a sizzling hot plate, and my favorite thing to do at Pepper Lunch is to add extra cheese to whatever I'm ordering.
