Spicy Fish, Little Bourke St, Melbourne CBD, Melbourne

It was about 9.30 pm in chilly Melbourne when we decided to have dinner. As I had a few places I had wanted to go for dinner, we made our way to the restaurant. We wanted a nice warm chinese meal at the time so we didn't particularly noticed the Italian or Korean etc etc restaurants as we passed by it. Unfortunately, the restaurant I had wanted to go to was closed and so, having to walk back again, I decided to try the next one on my list, and again, it seemed to have closed earlier than what I thought it would normally be. I wasn't being judgemental or anything, but since it is in the CBD, plus near Chinatown, and may I have to remind you that it is a Chinese restaurant may it be a Dumplings restaurant or just a noodle soup but no, I did not expect it to close at around this time.

And so, our journey ended us with grumbling tummies, trying to look for a Chinese restaurant in the heart of Little Bourke St area and some were quite filled but the menu didn't interest us. We came across 'Spicy Fish' a restaurant located on the GF of Target Centre, a restaurant that didn't look as much as appealing but what the heck, we gave it a shot.. So that's how we ended up here, in 'Spicy Fish', whilst being tired of walking around at night trying to find a casual delicious Chinese restaurant.

Gami Chicken & Beer, Little Lonsdale St, Melbourne CBD

Gami Chicken and Beer has a few locations scattered in Melbourne CBD, we wanted to go somewhere close to where we were so we went to the Little Lonsdale St Branch, however we kind of got lost and went the opposite direction and since it was hard finding the numbers on the buildings, we actually ended up having to make a u-turn and walk back to the other side, Little Lonsdale St was quite a long road. So, this chicken better be good we thought, since we even wanted to go somewhere else since we couldn't be bothered walking back and far.. but in the end, we thought, who cares, just give it a go, and definitely... no regrets.

Pizza Capers' new Rustico Thin Base review

When I heard that Pizza Capers was launching their new Rustico Thin Base, it got me thinking.. Will it be those really thin bases that when you pick your pizza slice up, it will just get soggy down the bottom? Pizza Capers said it will be full of flavour, made in store using quality ingredients and a traditional recipe. Along with their generous toppings, the thin base would be complemented well. Let's have a try shall we?

HQ Cafe, Kedron-Wavell Services Club, Chermside, Brisbane

My my.. I don't remember the last time I stepped foot in Kedron-Wavell, but I'm glad I did when the restaurants in Chermside mall was getting a bit dry and wanted to go past Chermside are for lunch but as we drove near the Kedron-Wavell, I thought, why not have a peek and maybe they may serve up good food. Though, I have to admit, I was in the moment of missing pub food.. Good ol' pub food.. and was I surprised by its renovated interior and restaurants too. Though many of you may say it is crowded with older adults, but there were many having lunch breaks from the office, short meetings, or just your casual dressed young adults as well..

Hurricane's Grill, Surfers Paradise, Gold Coast

Hurricane's Grill on Surfers Paradise do win you without having to drive too far off the Surfers precinct plus you do get your beach view if you dine in near the balcony area. However, since my bad experience of hard meat, meat not being off the bone in Sydney's Darling Harbour branch, I still preferred my favourite ribs place to go which yes, does require a further driving to do but is definitely worth it. Of course, we are here to talk about Hurricane's and not that... Located in a perfect location, entrance may get confusing if you're not used to your way around, but signs are there to guide you. Bookings are essential but sometimes if they are quite empty, seatings are available and you won't have to wait for long. It was quite packed when we came in, it was the weekend anyway, but for lunchtime, it shouldn't be as packed as dinner time, so for those wanting to come down during dinner, do book..

Blackboard Specialty Coffee, Varsity Lakes, Queensland

When I started seeing those oozy-plumpy-syringed cronuts, I knew I had to go down and have one, or maybe two.. Blackboard Specialty Coffee is located in the suburbs of Varsity Lakes, humbly located near the Bond University campus serving their specialty coffee with their famous cronuts, also a few food items on their menu. A simple interior, a relaxed atmosphere, a bakery is there too for any takeaways on any sweets or sandwiches, wooden tables, white tiled walls, even their waiters were laid-back.
