The Pantry on Egmont

The Pantry on Egmont

Another cool breakfast place!!

My good friend told me about this little place.  Who would have thought there would be a cafe there, hidden in the small suburb of Hawthorn parallel to the train tracks.  There were plenty of parks along both sides of the road.  The little cafe was so tiny that it could fit about 20 odd patrons inside and a few sittings outside.  They do not take any bookings, therefore I suggest you go there early and line up for a table.

Lenzerheide Restaurant

Lenzerheide Restaurant

Award winning restaurant!!

An award winning restaurant and one of my favourites is Lenzerheide Restaurant.  I have been here several times, and every time I have managed to miss a turn into the restaurant.  You can also enter from the side and into the carpark at the back.  There are limited spaces at the front right next to the restaurant, however don't worry.  There are plenty of parks at the back.  On all their dishes, there was a choice of matching wines.

Gusto Ristorante

It used to be one of the best!!

I have heard mixed reviews of this place.  I have been to Gusto quite a few times now, but it was hit and miss a couple of times.  Lately, my followers had informed me that they didn't like it anymore.  We decided to go and try again.  It wasn't very busy on a week night.  In fact I used to remember that it would be packed, and if you had no booking you would not be able to get a table.

Mariners Restaurant and Dockside Bar & Bistro

Mariners Restaurant and Dockside Bar & Bistro

Beautiful views with fresh and local produce!!

Sometimes it's worth while going for a drive on a beautiful sunny afternoon along the beach.  Driving passed all these boats, the entry to the restaurant was a little confusing.  It was a yatch club, and there were two particular gates that we had to enter to get into the carpark of the restaurant.  However once we were inside, there were plenty of parks and signs were everywhere to lead us the way to the restaurant.

Giwa Korean Restaurant

Giwa Korean Restaurant

I have always wanted to try out this restaurant every time I drive past King William Road.  I wanted to see why it was awarded the best Asian restaurant for 2013.  With all the busy eateries on King William Road, Giwa appeared to be one of the more quiet ones, with only two tables including us tonight.  Menu at a glance was on a slightly expensive side.  Three dumplings were almost 16 dollars.

+39 Pizzeria

Great Italian Find!

There are too many restaurants in Melbourne, one of my favourite ones is the +39 Pizzeria.  I have been here quite a few times.  Everytime the standards remained very high, and never fail to disappoint me.  It didn't matter which night, they were always busy.  We made sure we had a booking.  The staff there were all so friendly.  I even picked up how to speak a little Italian there, and ordered my pizzas in Italian.

Go Go Buffalo - Glynde Hotel

Go Go Buffalo - Glynde Hotel

I knew there were menu specials on specific days, however we went on a Sunday night instead.  There were not many patrons in the restaurant.  The staff were not so attentive.  We had to line up at the counter to order the food.  There was one girl who was serving someone in front of me, and then another decided that she would serve the person behind me.  The girl who was serving the person in front of us then said she probably thought I was being served.  Well then, shouldn't the girl tell the other one to serve me?  There was no apology made either.
