What you see i have done today is..

Create a space where one can read about food reviews of places to eat in Melbourne that doesn't come from a food forum, official restaurant listings, newspaper reviews but the opinion of a normal man on the street.

While the Urbanspoon website is really handy; a comprehensive listing of restaurants and even links to blogs for 3rd opinions, there aren't enough websites like that out there for someone who wants to search for food in Melbourne. 

Just for example, Lygon street boasts a street that is filled with italian restaurants, probably to the hundred mark since it is so long down or up depending on which end you come from. In the city, you find restaurants in alleys which no one would know about except from word of mouth. 

Over the next few weekends, i have the pleasure of a friend who is traveling down to Melbourne for business, we are trying to eat out at as many places as possible. Unfortunately, it is sometimes rather hard for me to carry a big camera since we are usually walking around after, so bear with me on the no picture posts.

What you will get though is when you find yourself in Melbourne, you at least have a 3rd party opinion of where to eat and where not to eat. 

So have fun reading, while wait for my recipe posts for mouth watering pictures!
