Kaikey's Lane, CBD

Located in Melbourne CBD’s iconic Block Place, Kaikey's Lane is a much loved multi-purpose venue. Existing primarily as a casual restaurant and bar, Joe Hachem’s latest venture also offers a number of different options for functions and events.

Given its location, Kaikey’s Lane is more likely to benefit from foot traffic passing through Block Place, rather than a dedicated local clientele.

The menu offers a mixed selection of familiar modern favourites such as burgers, paellas, pastas, and pizzas. Kaikey’s Lane delivers honest food without surprises, which can be very comforting. Because sometimes, all I really want is a good spag bol.

Earth Wind and Flour, Elwood

Earth Wind Flour in Elwood appears to be just like any other traditional pizza shop, but it offers much more! With a selection of gourmet toppings, as well as ribs and wings, and pasta dishes on the menu, there is quite a lot to choose from. My recommendation is that whether you’re dining in or ordering take away, don’t go past the saucy buffalo wings, served with a blue cheese sauce.

Moreover, if you’re gluten intolerant, the team at Earth Wind Flour has worked hard to create the perfect base just for you. Texturally light and smooth, without the granularity which can sometimes affect GF bases, both T and I loved his GF Margherita.

A Thousand Blessings, Richmond

A Thousand Blessings is a café in Richmond with a particular focus on holistic wellbeing, seasonal produce, and virtuous dishes.

On the weekend, there is often a huddle of people waiting to be seated, and you’d be lucky to score a seat in the sun.  

If you’re in a group, I would recommend leaving one person to wait so that the rest of you can enjoy a wander through the Gleadell St fresh food market.

The menu items feature many brunch items such as, acai, cacao, matcha, and of course, avocado, which aim to resonate instantly with brunch loving millennials. I tried the corned beef Benedict consisting of thick rashes of corned beef, a good dollop of smashed peas, and two crunchy potato croquettes, piled even higher with poached eggs and hollandaise sauce.

Actually one of the reasons we chose to come here is because the menu is full of GF options. Of these, we ordered the buckwheat pancakes and the banana fritters, both of which were rather sweet, and probably sweeter than I would have expected of such a virtuous venue.

Easey's, Collingwood

I attended the launch of Castello Australia’s Burger Blue range at Easey’s, where had the chance to meet Adam from Man v. Food, and build our own burgers featuring Castello’s blue cheese slices.

The creamy and characteristically tangy notes of blue cheese were strong, but balanced by sweet and salty undertones, adding an unique layer of flavor to a savory grilled beef patty. I also loaded up my burger with some fig relish, and plenty of sweet BBQ sauce, as I love my food to be extra saucy!
