Touché, “Touché Hombre” by Kat Williams

September 6, 2012


It is safe to say that Mexican food is one of the most popular, tastiest cuisines around and if you don’t like some nachos from time to time there’s something deeply wrong with you. Touché Hombre, on Lonsdale Street, is a new edition to Melbourne’s Mexican food scene after the popularity of Mamasita left us […]

Is Australia just roo-less in confidence? by Mattie Mould

November 25, 2011


All Aussies claim to live up to the land-loving, tanned, hardened image the world holds of us, but are we really? Is it land-loving to continually rebuff the idea of eating kangaroo meat? We’ve all seen it, lying on the supermarket shelves. It looks like any other meat that we would buy for a Tuesday […]

Hi guys! Surprise! It’s me again. This review is a little late, mainly because I’ve been sitting around watching The Vampire Diaries instead of writing.

“Masterchef” or “Wheel of Fortune”? by Braam Smith

June 9, 2011


Huzzah! This television addict just scored roughly six hours of his week back. Thank you MasterChef producers for … yet another … MasterDebacle. Let’s get the record straight. I’m a bloke. Cooking has never really interested me – there I said it. Oooh, Good! I can feel you judging me already!! That’s fine, it’s probably […]

February 23, 2011


Okay, so I’m not one of those brilliantly creative people who sit down at their computers every day and write an entry for a blog they created. Wow, that makes blog-writers sound like massive nerds. Maybe they are. Anyway, I’m also not that computer technology savvy…come to think of it, I ask my 15-year-old sister […]
