TOURISM

WHEN IT’S TOO EARLY FOR A BEER…

Oooh look here: low-sugar sarsaparilla. Perfect. Someone at Bundaberg Brewed Drinks likes me.  I have to watch my figure these days (cos no-one else looks at it). The post WHEN IT’S TOO EARLY FOR A BEER… appeared first on HaxTrax.

SUPERMARKET MYSTERIES of the 21st Century

Bread discrimination! Why does brown bread cost almost twice as much as white bread? Surely it costs more to process white bread. It’s bias against us healthier eaters. I bet Jesus gave out wholemeal loaves on the Mount…   The post SUPERMARKET MYSTERIES of the 21st Century appeared first on HaxTrax.

COFFEE CONES

Cafe latte in a chocolate lined waffle cone. Not to be sipped too slowly, it’s a quick “winter warmer” while listening to the Lauren and Eimhin Duet. At Banff Cafe in St Kilda.  The post COFFEE CONES appeared first on HaxTrax.

I CAME, I ‘SLAW, I WAS CONQUERED

It’s true. I’m having a very public love affair with this coleslaw. Made in house by chef/owner Rochelle, it’s so creamy but light. In keeping with a balanced diet, I’m having it with crunchy fries today, just $7. At Dear Liza, St Kilda… The post I CAME, I ‘SLAW, I WAS CONQUERED appeared first on HaxTrax.

A NICE MEAL FOR $10?

Yes, I’ve found my fave “corner cafe” for this winter: try a coffee plus 2 poached eggs and charred, thick-cut bacon on toast. It’s one of the selection of $10 Weekday Specials at Dear Liza, St Kilda. A big thanks to ex-staff Lauren Bull, Abi McGray and Shira Ashkenas for recommending Dear Liza…  The post A NICE MEAL FOR $10?...

LOADED LUNCHBOX

Why I’ve been frequenting St Kilda’s Dear Liza of late: heaps of fries, grilled corn cob, coleslaw – the creamiest, best I’ve tasted – and fried “chicken ribs” which are like big wings but without fat and gristle, coated in Chinese 5 spice crumbs. With a spicy tomato relish dip. For $12.50. What? Yes: $12.50. #St_Kilda #lunch #lunchbox #haxtrax.com   Asia, Australia,...

FULL AS A GOOG

Food indulgence on the first day of Winter: 2 eggs and tender chunks of chorizo baked in a tomato/leek/chilli sugo, topped with feta and fresh herbs with 2  toast. A generous serve, add 2 more toast and it's enough for two. $18. Dear Liza cafe, St Kilda. Australia, Cafe, Cuisine, Eatery, Food, Luxury, Pasta, Tapas, Tours, Travel, Victoria Previous post St...

31 March – 2 April

Maddawgs of Melbourne This is Joff. He is the kind of guy who rocks two pairs of glasses at a time. He was big in the pottery scene of Warrandyte in the 70’s while also being a deep sea diver erecting (lol) oil rigs in Bass Straite. Joff got married, divorced and hit that mid-life crisis patch hard. But instead of buying a car, he became a firefighter...

17 – 19 March

Maddawgs of Melbourne This is Anna. She grew up in the Western suburbs of Melbourne where her first job was delivering loaves of dad’s bread to all the locals who used to high-five her but as she is Asian she wasn’t nice to them until they had paid. Everyone in Anna’s family werked and twerked the hospo scene running the original...
