When looking for a cheap steak night a few weeks ago, Apple directed us towards the Arcadia Hotel in South Yarra. While the steak surprisingly enough for me vegetarian self wasn't the object we were after somewhere that would feed Mr Meat and Potato and Moss Vegetarian (moi) and this place could do it with ease.
We went after a surprisingly warm day at the beach and climbed the flight of stairs to the packed rooftop bar/bistro air. The Arcadia Hotel (link) is very well pub like and ... Read More

Last weekend amid a flurry of cupcake decorating and macaron making Lamb and I scooted to Miss Chu - Queen of Rice Paper Rolls on Exhibition St for a very quick (and yummy) lunch.
Miss Chu's opened last year in Melbourne (has been around in Sydney for awhile I think) and has been'pular ever since.
