B'STILLA

30b Bray St, South Yarra - ph: 9826 2370

Hubby got excited about B'Stilla when he found out the same guys behind Mamasita and Momo were running the kitchen.

Unlike Mamasita, B'Stilla does take bookings and we were seated straight away when we got there on a busy Friday night. B'Stilla's vibe can probably be described as 'Moroccan casual' - pretty minimal d├ęcor with middle eastern patterns covering the floor and walls and mood lighting to make things cosy.

HAKATA GENSUKE

168 Russell St, Melbourne - ph: 9663 6342

Hakata Gensuke seems to be the current talk of the town amongst Melbourne foodies. Every blogger has been there. It's been reviewed a million times, always along the same lines: they don't take bookings - queues are long - it's worth the wait.

ARI HASHI - best sushi in Richmond

258 Swan St Richmond - ph: (03) 03 9427 0609

So happy with my 'discovery' of a great sushi joint in Richmond!

Ari Hashi is not new, but I've missed it somehow and never had much luck trying to find decent quality sushi in the area.

Even though there is plenty of options in the pre-made/ takeaway/ hand roll sushi category along Bridge and Swan Rd, it's hard to find authentic Japanese restaurants specialising in sushi.

A LA FOLIE

589 Chapel St, South Yarra - ph: (03) 9827 3337

We made a special 'breakfast family trip' to A la folie last Saturday to try their macarons and petits choux.

NIEUW AMSTERDAM

106–112 Hardware St, Melbourne - ph: (03) 9602 2111

Just visited Nieuw Amsterdam for the first time for dinner. I was looking for something  a bit different for our anniversary celebration this year and liked the idea of a restaurant/ cocktail bar.

Nieuw Amsterdam is spread across two levels - a basement cocktail bar and a bright open space dining area on the first level.

SUPER NORMAL

180 Flinders Lane, Melbourne

Hi everyone!

It's been a while since we last posted on the blog, it's bad... Reality is, with 2 little ones and day jobs that keep getting more demanding there just isn't enough time to dedicate to writing.

When the babies were first born, we actually didn't have much to blog about - going out for nice dinners became a distant memory. Now that they are over 1, we've been venturing out more (many times with kids in tow - they are getting spoiled) but I'm still struggling to have time to actually sit down and write.


Anyhow, it's 6.30am on a Sunday morning and I might get half an hour if I'm lucky :)
