After several weeks of drooling over the quirky soft serves from Milkcow up on social media, K and I finally made the trip to their newly opened pop-up in the city. Originating from South Korea, this ice-cream chain exploded in popularity across Asia before making its way to Melbourne. Its recipes and toppings have been adapted to include organic Australian milk and honeycomb as well as collaborations with the likes of Sensory Lab Specialty Coffee.
Whenever I return to Canberra, I always try to make a trip to The Cupping Room, one of my home town’s most popular cafés. Located right in the city centre, it’s always bustling with university students, families and businessmen alike, all looking for a cup of their amazing Ona coffee. I caught up with a high school friend at The Cupping Room during my annual leave, and even though it was almost three months ago, I was so impressed with their food I knew I had to review it!
Baba Sus has been on my list of must-visits ever since I first spied their amazing looking Hong Kong egg waffles on my Instagram feed, and my recent move to Glen Iris made this all the more easy. Located right next to Burwood train station, it occupies a little corner spot that’s been renovated into a bright, open café with wooden accents. The atmosphere is relaxed and friendly, while the menu boasts a seasonal selection of dishes with South-East Asian influences.
Burger & Lobster
29 Clarges St Mayfair, London W1J 7EF
Too often, I’m overwhelmed by all the choices available at restaurants, which is why Burger & Lobster is the perfect place to visit if you’re looking for a delicious meal without all the complications. K and I were very keen to visit while we were in London as we’d heard great things about it. The idea is simple – choose burger or lobster. The former comes as a gargantuan 10 ounce steak beefburger while the latter is further subdivided into a whole lobster or a lobster roll. All options are same price and served with fries and salad, so it ultimately boils down to a single decision. We were in a seafood mood that night so we ended up ordering both lobster options – for the same price, it definitely seemed like the smarter choice to go for lobster over burger.
Vietnamese food is my go-to when I’m in the mood for a light meal, and when prepared using fresh ingredients, it can be both healthy and full of amazing flavour. This was certainly the case at Ba’get, a small, non-descript little restaurant and takeaway located along Russell Street that serves up an amazing selection of Banh Mi, noodles salads and rice paper rolls for a very affordable price.
