Insiders of the Month: May

If you haven’t seen, I’ll be featuring recommendations from people each month. The plan was to feature one recommendation, but now I’ve realised a compilation would be better, so my readers can have the same variety of options as me! Check out my Insiders below!

Kay has recommended Zombie Burger in St Kilda as it has yummy burgers! Although I work in St Kilda, it’s not close enough for me to visit on lunch but it’s definitely on the to-go list.

Zombie Burger on Urbanspoon

Jennie has suggested Camy Shangai Dumpling in Chinatown. You pay $15 for All You Can Eat with no time limit. You need at least five people to have All You Can Eat and they just keep on bringing out dishes!

I managed to try it yesterday night, and it’s so popular as of late I was lucky enough to receive dish recommendations from Never Too Sweet and I Eat Therefore I Am. A post will be coming on it shortly!

I would love to mention a few more but I also would like to try them out myself and provide everyone with a review. Keep recommending me places by emailing me or commenting on my blog/social media, and it might be featured next month! This month’s features will be up on the side bar of my blog soon. In the meantime, here’s a roundup of some of my latest articles on my other websites: Rue & Co A new eating spot on the Paris end of Collins St. How can you resist the combination of St Ali cafe, Masterchef George Calombaris’ Jimmy Grants and Chin Chin’s head man, Chris Lucas, with a taste of his new Korean restaurant Kong. I’ll probably be writing more of a review on the food soon, but for now click here to read more on the place itself!

American Restaurants in Melbourne
Similarly I’ve written about some of these restaurants before, but if you’d like a little summary and to see more recommendations from my Weekendnotes readers, read on!

Round She Goes Preloved Fashion Market, Box Hill After the last amazing event in Coburg, this unique market will have its next round at Box Hill. The lovely founder Emma personally approves each stall so the market is full of quality and variety. For more, click here! Ice Hockey
If you’ve had a taste of this intense sport in North America, well it’s now coming on tour to Australia. Witness a match exhibiting the serious rivalry between USA and Canada and their iconic sport at Rod Laver Arena. Read the article here.

The trailer is having some issues in my article, but for now you can check it out here:

There are more articles not listed here, so check out my Weekendnotes and Livlicious profiles if you’re interested. Thanks for all the support in the past months. I’m currently ranked in the top 25 writers on Weekendnotes whilst this blog is continously growing, reaching new personal bests for site visits this month!

As Summer Goes By…

As you’ll remember that alongside eating, I also enjoy going on adventures! Here are my recent adventures in summer, as documented on Weekendnotes. In addition to that I also recommend an event for March – when summer will officially be gone. But it’s ok, there’s still plenty to do in Melbourne as always!

Squeaky Beach: article
A three hour drive to Wilson’s Promontory was well worth the beautiful views that this national park provides. We spent most of our time at Squeaky Beach where the sand truly squeaks with every step and the water was breathtakingly clear.

Yarra Valley Day Trip: Cherryhill Orchards & Healesville Sanctuary: article
Yarra Valley never ceases to amaze with its hilly and green scenery. During this adventure I got to pick cherries for the first time at the same time as admiring these famous views. In addition to this we squeezed in a trip to Healeseville Sanctuary, where I got to feed birds and come right up close to native Australian animals.

Moonraker Dolphin & Seal Swims in Sorrento: article
An early morning was well worth my first time snorkelling. Did I mention I can’t swim? So you can imagine how nervous I was, but I’m so glad I got to step out of my comfort zone and come up close to animals such as the Australian Fur Seals. Unfortunately we didn’t get to see dolphins, but the seals were amazing.

Twelve Apostles along the Great Ocean Road: article
I’ve been along the Great Ocean Road before but not as far as Victoria’s iconic Twelve Apostles. There’s a long viewing platform to walk on and take all sorts of photos, as you marvel at the impressive coastal formations. You also get to admire the views along the Great Ocean Road drive itself. A must-do for Victorians!

Round She Goes Market, Coburg: article
This isn’t your typical Sunday trash and treasure market. It’s indoors and it’s all about quality vintage products – nothing shabby here. There will be lots of preloved designer items as well as other items that are in fantastic condition. This market has a $2 entry but it’s well worth the goodies that will be available!
