Gastrology bloggers were privileged to be invited to the launch of Circa’s Pop Up Yakitori Bar (which will only be around for the month of April) at Circa, The Prince.
In conjunction with the excitement of the Pop Up launch, Circa showed off a more permanent addition - its sleek new bar. The new bar has an indoor outdoor feel, with fairy light wrapped foliage hanging from the ceiling, and natural light streaming through sky lights.
With so many budding restaurateurs jumping on the Mexican bandwagon, the prospect of one that is actually worth raving about is exciting!
We first experienced Acland St. Cantina (ASC) during the restaurant's launch party. We were impressed then, but experience has shown us that great food at a launch party doesn’t necessarily translate when you move to a sit down dinner. Thankfully, in this case, it did. The food was fabulous.
Believe the hype. With an appropriately simple and fresh menu, Sushi Monger ticks all the right boxes. With an emphasis on fresh and high quality ingredients, it certainly aims to please and does! Their house-made miso soup is certainly commendable and a notch above the average MSG-ridden stuff.
Gastrology bloggers attended a show by New York stand-up Abigoliah Schamaun tonight. Schamaun has been making quite a splash with her Melbourne International Comedy Festival show, “Girl Going To Hell”, receiving great reviews last weekend in Herald Sun, Yawp and Crikey.
