Our Paris Guide

2d ago
We utterly love Paris! It is beautiful, vibrant, stylish, and the eating and drinking is exquisite. This is by no means a guide that contains everything, and really is more of a journal of places we have enjoyed staying, dining, drinking, and experiencing. For first timers in Paris, this is probably quite helpful because it ..read more

Parcs – Melbourne, City – Saturday 18 May 2024 – Dinner
BLK's Food Blog
by bleekong
1M ago
Admitting that I’m confused about a tasting menu is not something I would ordinarily like to do. I feel I need to, as Parcs is the kind of place where what you’re eating makes sense, until you try to begin writing about it. This is a tiny restaurant by CBD standards. I counted 22 chairs ..read more

Rottnest Guide

Rottnest is not about fine dining. It is an incredibly beautiful island, where what makes it unique, is what can make it a bit trying too. There are few places in the world like it. Some of the most glorious beaches in the world, with not a single soul along the stretch. Very few cars ..read more

Very rarely do I go out to a restaurant without knowing the first thing about it. In this case, Catherine had long ago aimed to dine here, and I went in blind but confident. If there is anyone who can be trusted to find a great meal, it is my wife. We arrive on the ..read more

Frederic – Cremorne – Saturday 10 February 2024 – Dinner

by bleekong
4M ago
It’s down the street. Back in the day I was here at least once a week for coffee and a croissant. The pandemic had its impact, but the strength of the team behind Frederic ensured the quality would be retained. There is no good reason why I haven’t dedicated the time to review Frederic. Having ..read more

I am lucky that I have the opportunity to eat and drink at a lot of different venues. With a young boy, time has not however been on my side to write about each of those venues. With that in mind, I have been thinking about how I best document my culinary travels more regularly ..read more

Donna Maria – Flinders, Mornington Peninsula – Wednesday 27 December 2023 – Dinner
BLK's Food Blog
by bleekong
5M ago
There is tonic in the act of a dining experience. For Catherine and I, it is well understood, but not formally written, that we need some time to eat, drink, and discuss – to live. Sometimes we don’t have that opportunity, and it is tough. The find of Donna Maria is attributed to me from ..read more

Gray and Gray, Bread and Wine – Northcote – Thursday 16 December 2023 – Dinner

As a professional, I find the outside of Gray and Gray entirely cute, and somehow inviting. An oasis for professionals in Northcote, this is not. A great venue to catch up and enjoy some diverse wines, and slightly familiar but not familiar dishes, this is. The signage is an ode to the previous occupant which ..read more

Etta – Brunswick East – Dinner

by bleekong

There’s a reason there are countless lists and guides all over the internet and traditional media. Over time my infatuation has subsided to a degree, but I still find a strong desire to venture to list toppers. As an example of this, while I didn’t book the minute it won best restaurant in Victoria for ..read more

I live in the little pocket of Cremorne, which is bordered by Richmond, Burnley and South Yarra (plus Melbourne Park). Cremorne is best known for its growing population of office workers, incredible level of construction and development, and the Nylex Clock. Less known is the fact that one side of Swan Street, and one side ..read more
