Melbourne’s Best Burgers According to Me

I blame Melbourne’s incredible burger scene for my pot belly. Actually, scrap that. If I'm honest, I already had a pot belly. But I do blame Melbourne’s incredible burger scene for the extended edition I'm now sporting.


Potato Head Beach Club, Bali

You might have heard of Potato Head Beach Club. There are several of them around the world – in Hong Kong, Singapore, Jakarta and pictured here; Bali.

It's a fun place to hang out, listen to music, dance, drink, swim and enjoy the views. As so—an avid supporter of all things fun—I was pleased to be able to spend an afternoon at their original site in Seminyak on our recent Bali trip.


Higher Ground, Melbourne


"If you would lift me up you must be on higher ground"

I couldn't say it better myself.  I'm assuming that when American poet Ralph Waldo Emerson penned this famous quote he was looking well beyond his 19th century existence. His crystal ball was tuned to February 2017 and focused firmly on Little Bourke Street, Melbourne Australia.


Weekend Brunch Club: Roasted Greens & Goats Cheese on Toast

This recipe is inspired by something I ate at Pond Cafe in Torquay. Nope, not that one. Torquay on the Great Ocean Road in Australia! I've always been a fan of a roasted brassica but I've never thought of putting them on toast. Until now. 

If you've not been following, at the start of the year I began my new blog link up, Weekend Brunch Club, to honour and celebrate this wonderful meal between breakfast and lunch. This is the third recipe in the series so far and you can see the previous two (plus details on how to join in) here.


Shanghai Street - Dumplings worth waiting for?

When you see a queue outside a bar or restaurant do you join it? Or do you walk away? 

For the last few months, we've seen the queue outside Shanghai Street in Melbourne's chinatown and walked away. There is so much choice for dumplings that we never thought it worth the wait. Last week we decided to join the queue and finally see what all the fuss was about. 

A real spread at Shanghai Street, Melbourne

Spring Vegetable Pancake from Kelly's Food to Glow

Sweet Orange Warung, Ubud, Bali

Without sounding too far up my own you-know-what, I can honestly say I'm really good at finding hidden gems when it comes to food. I tend to avoid trip advisor, turning instead to instagram and travel blogs to see where similar folk are eating in the places I visit.

It feels like a lifetime ago since we were in Bali but I still have so much stuff to share with you from that trip. Starting with this place: Sweet Orange Warung. A peaceful dining spot just 20 minutes walk outside of Ubud.
