I was talking to a friend of mine about about my love of fresh seafood. He asked if I’d ever eaten at this seafood place behind the Tooradin Airport, Wings & Fins. I’d never heard of it. I didn’t know there was a seafood place behind Tooradin Airport. Apparently this place serves seafood flown in… Read More ›
I’ve lived in Melbourne all my life and didn’t know this boutique hotel existed. Shame! I only experienced it by chance. I met a friend of mine for lunch at Supernormal to try Andrew McConnell’s famous lobster rolls and noticed the Adelphi across the street. I decided to pop over and have a look after lunch….

You might remember me saying that I’d rather eat at a food court than in Hardware Lane, Melbourne. Well….did I offend someone?
Today I had a wonderful lunch with colleagues at Silks Chinese restaurant. For the record, I don’t like Chinese food or Chinese restaurants. The gluey sauces, the MSG, the cooked pineapple, the plastic prawns, the gristle meat and the over powering saltiness. Not to mention, most chinese restaurants have a leaking fish tank with mind… Read More ›
