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.
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…
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…
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.

$15 on Monday nights. Wash it down with $10 Margaritas.
People think of Big Mouth as a summer venue but everyone here likes her best in Winter. Upstairs when the heaters blaring, its dark at 6pm, sheets of rain pelt against the windows, the mulled wines wafts up the stairs with it’s cinnamon Christmas nose. There’s no better place. And in the next few weeks we are installing a good old fashioned wood heater. Come and have dinner with us if you are in the area.

I prefer to peel prawns myself, so I burn up their equivalent in kilojoules. That’s my theory. These cooked prawns from Aldi are just $26 a kilo. I loathe to rinse seafood under tap water but these guys are preserved in so much salt, you may want to run them through the Wonthaggi desal plant before eating. Delicious on fresh wholemeal bread with butter and pepper. Rinsed first, of course…
