UNITED KITCHEN DINING & TAPAS Latin American inspired tapas and cocktails

2/52 Fitzroy St, St Kilda - ph 03 9534 4470 

United Kitchen Dining & Tapas is St Kilda's latest Latin American-inspired eatery.

We got a taste of their launch menu and loved the concept of using kitchen ingredients to create their cocktails.

IN SEASON - Australian Cherries

Did you know that the Australian cherry season lasts only 100 days?

Last weekend we joined Prahran Market and the Victorian Cherry Association to welcome the 2015 Victorian cherry season.

Prahran Market vendors got creative with cherry inspired recipes and the likes of Doughboys Donuts and Naughty Boy Cafe joined the fun with popup stalls selling special edition donuts and shakes.

FRANKIE SAYS: new restaurant in Richmond to enjoy warm al fresco afternoons

The vibe the owners were going for was to make you feel as confortable and relaxed as you would in your own living room. Only - small detail - the view from your living room just got seriously upgraded.

SUPERNORMAL - Chef Andrew McConnell's new restaurant in Melbourne

180 Flinders Lane, Melbourne - ph (03) 9650 8688

Supernormal is Chef Andrew McConnell's newest Asian inspired restaurant.

Readers of this blog will know that we are fans of Andrew McConnell's food and have tried all his other restaurants Builder's Arms, Moon Under Water and Cutler and Co before. I love it that each of his restaurants offers a quite distinct dining experience, but they all share the same trendy-yet-relaxed vibe about them.

I like Supernormal's sleek, slightly quirky Japanese design and the open plan space. Supernormal is super trendy, yet you still feel like a guest coming for a special meal at someone's house.

We tried Supernormal's set menu in this visit. At $65 a head for 7 courses including dessert, I thought this was great value.
