gelato at il melograno

Il Melograno is THE place to go for delicious Sicilian gelato and amazing baked treats. The coffee is amazing, so far I’ve enjoyed several long macs and double espressos. Have yet to try the sorbet, granita and savoury options, but I’m happily becoming a regular. Find Il Melograno at 76 High St, Northcote.

il melograno is coming

I’m pleased to hear that Westgarth Village will soon welcome Il Melograno – gelato, granita and pasticceria with a slow foods, real ingredients feel. The gelato chef is Marco Enea, a third generation gelataio from Palermo, who plans to use Australian fruit in season – and no gluten or preservatives. Look out for Carl Fodera’s Il Melograno, which should open in June…

beef bulgogi @ seoul soul, northcote

Seoul Soul Northcote opened on Friday 28 March, and I enjoyed my recent lunch there. My beef bulgogi came with rice, salad, fruit and a few cocktail sized nibbles – delicious, generous, and great value at $10. I’ll definitely be back to try the bibimbap, kimchi, noodle soup, and chargrill BBQ options. Love the modern industrial fitout too. Find Seoul Soul at 315 High St Northcote (and their original premises at 323 Victoria St, Abbotsford).

The windows will feature fresh art on a regular basis, and the 86 tram goes right past. Find Chew Burger on facebook and at 147 Plenty Rd, Preston.

i miss you lowlands aka damn landlords

I liked Lowlands. A lot. Sadly I missed the chance to have one last coffee and say goodbye. Damn landlords is all I can say really…The good news is that Oliver Mackay and Chrissie Trabucco have relocated to Assembly, their brand new espresso bar. Find them at 60 Pelham St Carlton.
