Read a high compliment about Grill D before, ” Once you tried it, You will never eat other burgers”. And this is how Grill’d have a special spot in my heart.

At the very 1st day in Melbourne, I start to look for Grill’D. We lastly found one at the Southbank during our way to Royal Botanical Garden.

We choose for the premium one, which cost us approx. AUD 15 for each.

Wagyu Wunder

Premium wagyu pattie with Dijon mustard, pickle, aged cheddar, Spanish onion, smoked sea salt, tomato sauce & egg mayo.
Sir Truffle


Premium wagyu pattie with truffle mayo, aged cheddar, smoked sea salt, cos lettuce & fresh basil.

After trying both, I highly recommend Sir Truffle if you can only choose one. The strong scent of the truffle just goes out once you cut into the burger. It is really delicious. The beef patty was grilled just right and when bite on it, it was so juicy and tender.

Stalactites @ Greek Restaurant, Melbourne

So exciting to learn that it is open 24 hours. After checked in to hotel, i immediately start to look for my 1st meal in Melbourne during the winter night and Stalactites will be my 1st visit restaurant.

Stalactites, a restaurant where classic Greek dishes served in dining room with exposed stone walls and striking stalactite ceiling.

And yet, i’m too under-estimate the distance from my hotel to Stalactites, thought they locate at the same road, Lonsdale street, but at both end. My hubby and kids keep grumble at me for 45 minutes walking at winter night and i convinced them that their effort will pay off shortly. 🙂

We reached the restaurant about 11pm, still full of peoples.  Without waiting long, our foods are served.


Mixed Giro platter with marinated spring lamb & chicken


The lamb was very tender and juicy, and the chicken was really nicely marinated and seasoned. We also ordered some pita to go with. 

Lamb souvlaki – their famous & popular dish


It come with lettuce, tomato, onion and homemade tzatziki rolled in warm pita bread. The pita was airy and thin – not chewy and thick.  The tzaziki is a homemade yoghurt, garlic and cucumber sauce .
If you not the lamb lover, you can look for chicken souvlaki.
We just order these 2 dishes and it is full enough. try to imagine more than 95% are meats. Quite a heavy meal for the late night.

Overall, this place is a meat and fresh salad haven. Food is delicious and simple but authentically greek.  Open 24hours this place is a go-to for when the late night munchies strike.

It’s no frills greek food that you can get any time you wish – you can’t go wrong with that. Or, you could, but these guys have got it right. If you’re a visitor to Melbourne , you have to try this place.

Pablo Cheese Tart @ Malaysia

I tried Pablo cheese tart in Osaka before and I couldn’t miss it’s taste until date. It is hardly to describe by words,  but as I said in my earlier blog, PABLO 半熟起司蛋糕, you will immediately fallen in love once you tried it.

Finally, it had spread it’s wing to Malaysia and open the 1st outlet at One Utama on 6th Dec 2016.


Pablo Cheese Tart is the only Japan based cheese tart chain to operate in Malaysia. If to compare with the 2 popular cheese tart brands, I would say Pablo Cheese Tart is the best. Anyway, the preference of taste is very personal from each individual, share me with your opinion if any.

Can you resist for not giving a try? Haha….


It is extremely soft and delicate. The crust is crunchy. The cheese flavor is pleasantly light with strong lemon taste, which balance out the cheesy feeling. Actually, you can easily finish the whole cheese tart (RM45.90/pc) by your own.


However, if you refer heavier and richer cheese taste, you must try their mini cheese tarts (RM8.90/pc). In term of taste, it is more dense & strong in cheese taste. It is very suitable for those cheese lover.


This is their signature drink. I still yet to try. I will get one next time.


The next I’m going to try is the Premium Cheese Tart. I guess the taste shall be good since it is premium. Haha…

Pho 2000 @ Ho Chi Minh

You could never skip “Pho”, Vietnamese Noodle Soup when you visited Vietnam. It is a popular street food in Vietnam and Vietnamese people usually consume it at any time of the day.

Pho 2000 also made known by Pho for the President, where it was the chosen restaurant for US President, Bill Clinton after the renew of diplomatic relationship of Ho Chi Minh & US.

Scroll down to see how the Pho served by Pho 200 attracted the President the most, which makes he chosen it among the all.  Because of their fame, you will have to pay slightly more for a bowl here than you would in similar street establishments.


It is located next to Ben Thanh market, above a Coffee Bean cafe in District 1. It is rather a small place and you hardly to move around when it’s crowded.




Overall, I do not think the taste is as good as to compare with other pho restaurants and it is pricey as well. Anyway, I will still recommend you should give it a try if you never been here and you will know whether you have similar taste with Ex-Mr. President or not. ps: I’m not!

Hokkaido Cheese Tart @ Mid Valley

I recently so in love with cheese tart. After trying Tokyo secret, I immediately put Hokkaido cheese tart in my must eat list.

However, after the first bite, I guess my hubby can immediately spot my disappointment through my face. Maybe my expectation is too high?!


First thing first, in term of exterior, it doesn’t look as temptation as Tokyo secret. Besides, the crust is lack of buttery and flaky taste. The filling (cheese flavour) is milder. If you do love stronger cheese flavour, I afraid it might be a bit disappointment though. Just like me, after the first bite.

(ps: I would have to stress here that it is different from each person in term of taste. I do not like it is not mean it is not good, it is just no suit my preference only).

I have mine in Mid Valley. It’s located inside or beside Secret Recipe (i’m not too sure). Just look for Uniqlo or Secret Recipe, then you will find Hokkaido Cheese Tart. Why I say so, coz you won’t really notice it at first glance.

One thing good to say that it is only the cheese tart outlet having promotion, buy 5 free 1.

Kam Wah Cafe @ 金華冰廳

Kam Wah Cafe is well know by it’s Polo bun @菠蘿包 and according to “they” said, it is the best in Hong Kong.


Polo bun actually is a kind of sweet bun which is crunchy on the outside and softer on the inside. You can also request to served with a piece of butter inside the bun, Polo bun + Butter @ 菠蘿油. My hubby super love it.


My daughter is ordered noodle with pork chop, 猪扒捞丁. She enjoyed the pork chop very much and keep requested me to do so after returned from the trip.


I prefer French Toast@法蘭西多. I know it is a sinful food but it is hard to resist especially when it served. Crunchy at the surface & the melting butter, what a good combination!


See, what my hubby got for his breakfast. Don’t you think that he is too greedy. The noodle soup that he is ordered is 公司汤面, which means for “all in one” noodle soup.


To be frank, i do not think Hong Kong milk tea or coffee or mix (coffee & tea) is better than Malaysia one. Or maybe I’m just too pampered by Malaysia taste.


ps: The peoples there are very rude & the services is not good. Be prepared coz it is Hong Kong.

Kam Wah Cafe (金華冰廳)

Som Tam Nua @ Soi 5

As I’m walking towards the Ban Khun Mei direction, I noticed there is a long queuing outside a shop. I immediately told myself that it must be some good food to eat and this is how I found this – Som Tam Nua.


Som Tam means papaya salad, very popular dish in Thailand. You easily could spot it everywhere you go, in restaurant and even along the street.
Since the shop called Som Tam Nua, so the dish that shouldn’t be miss is Som Tam. They offers varieties of som tam and I picked for preserved egg version. It is the mixture of all kind of flavor – spicy, salty, sweet & sour. The plus point is the papaya very crisp.
Another must order dish – fried chicken. It is very well seasoned, sprinkled with crispy fried chopped garlic and fresh spring onion, plus the chicken is crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. What you can ask for more, except another serving. 🙂


Northeastern style Spicy Soup with Pork Bone – nothing special, we ordered because thinking to have some soup except Tom Yam.

Hot and Spicy Crispy Fish, it is really stayed true to it’s name – hot, spicy & crispy rolled into one delicious dish.
Som Tam Nua menu. Haven’t difficulty to speak Thai, just point at the picture and they will understand. Universal language.

4 Fingers

4 Fingers = Crispy Chicken. It seem like it is the “IN” word now. It was highly recommended by one of my friend. I went to try it out but not find any specialty except the crispness.

The 4 Fingers Crispy Chicken come with 2 favours – Soy Garlic & Hot Sauce. (ps: I prefer Soy Garlic)



They also have others to offer but I just try on their signature one. I actually find quite pricey with the portion that they give. Anyway, I will leave it to you for check it out!

KGB, Killer Gourmet Burgers

Recently, start liking to sandwiches & burgers. KGB is one in my favorite list. I bump  into this store incidentally, when walking from The Garden to Mid Valley by indoor walkway.  It is located at an isolated area, not easy to spot unless you come purpose for it.

My hubby and I enjoyed very much for the meal, especially the freshness of the food. It come to our surprise is the Kimchi with Bulgogi Beef Fries.


It is the mixture of kimchi, bulgogi beef pieces, onions, sour cream, cheddar cheese & etc. The blend of the ingredients make the fries become extra-ordinary. Highly recommend!!

Ops. Seem I almost forget about our main course.

Truffle’d Swiss – Grilled beef, sautéed Portobello mushrooms, swiss cheese, truffle infused and herbed ranch. It in fact another surprise to us, as the truffle played up the flavors of the burger, especially the mushrooms.


Tornado Chicken – Grilled Chicken, onion rings, sunny side egg, buffalowing aoili. Nothing surprise and I would say beef still the best choice!
