Highly recommended, Five Daisies!!!!!!

There is a great range of items on the menu for offer, ranging from breakfasts to lighter lunches, mediterranean salads, soups, to tapas and pizzas.  Speaking of which, there is brick / wood oven where most of the meals are cooked.  Imagine the amazing food coming out of the oven. The high temperatures and wood imparts a certain flavour to the meals that you just can't get in a normal oven, stove or microwave.  A more traditional way of cooking.

Tim Ho Wan - Melbourne

Tim Ho Wan - Melbourne

I was so excited when I found out that Tim Ho Wan was coming to Melbourne, Australia.  I remember seeing on the news, that on opening the line was so long and people would line up for hours to get in.  The restaurant itself wasn't very big and they do not take bookings, so I waited for a few months, when the hype had diminished.

Prawn har gows were served, my favourite!!! The skin was thin and transparent.

Nonna and I
Come hungry and leave happy! 

Nonna and I is tucked away down a side street off the Parade.  The restaurant is very cosy and you can smell the food cooking away in the kitchen.  We were one of the first diners there for the night, service was amazing.  As more and more diners walked in, the immaculate service continued throughout the night.

Jin's Bibimbar

Jin's Bibimbar

The name pretty much says it all, they offer a range of bibimbaps.  Bibimbap is a Korean dish which is 'mixed rice', of course together with other ingredients.  If you haven't had one before, the friendly staff will be more than happy to explain to you how it works.  Tick the boxes, and create your own for under $10.  Your bibimbap is constructed in front of you.

Empress Chinese Restaurant

Empress Chinese Restaurant

The lights have lit up again on Greenhill Road opposite the Burnside Village Shopping Centre.  Eastern Garden Chinese Restaurant has moved and in its place is new restaurant called Empress.  The owners have certainly put a lot of effort into renovating this restaurant.  There is a takeaway section at the back and an impressive grand entrance into the restaurant.  Empress specialises in shared plates and yum cha.  We came here for yum cha one time, but I am just going to concentrate on dinner this time.
