MoVida Bar de Tapas

Continuing my trend of being the world’s worst food blogger, here’s another review from a restaurant I went to back in 2015. MoVida Bar de Tapas is a popular tapas bar in Melbourne, Australia. Or at least it was back in 2015. Maybe their head... Continue

Manchester Press

Manchester Press in Melbourne, Australia. Look at that latte art. Even if it wasn’t the best food or coffee I’ve ever had, the latte art alone makes this place worth a visit. Unless my latte art happened to be made special just for me. I... Continue

Cookie is a popular Thai restaurant in Melbourne, though not as popular as Chin Chin, the other really popular Thai restaurant in Melbourne. I don’t remember how I ended up here, but I think it was by the recommendation of a bartender. Or a barista.... Continue

ABC Kitchen

If you’re a fancy beautiful person and you like to look at other fancy beautiful people, I’d recommend getting food at Jean-George’s ABC Kitchen in Manhattan. The space’s aesthetic is farm-to-table meets the Hampton’s mixed with fair trade and consciously sourced and other very fancy... Continue

Proud Mary

Proud Mary isn’t really in Melbourne proper. It’s nestled in a business district in nearby Collingwood, but it’s also super delicious and worth the trek out. Apparently they started out as one of the first cool warehouse style cafes in Melbourne, and now they’re a... Continue

TimeOut called it “Melbourne’s busiest restaurant“ and Broadsheet called it “the most successful restaurant Melbourne has ever seen.” I just know it as the... Continue

Reuben Hills Coffee Roastery & Cafe

Reuben Hills Coffee Roastery & Cafe was the first meal I had after touching down in Sydney. It was still too early for me to check in so I walked over from the subway with all my gear. I found the place via a Travel... Continue

My Kitchen (my灶)

The actual name of this place is my灶 but it translates to “My Kitchen” which is why I put it in the title. I don’t generally eat at these types of family restaurants when I travel because I’m typically traveling alone and not eating with... Continue

Milo and Olive

I was at the Getty Villa and had worked up an appetite wandering around looking at statues of naked people so I looked up nearby places to eat and ended up at Milo and Olive in Santa Monica. They’re listed as a bakery but they’ve... Continue

San Jose, CA / 03.01.2016


NOTE: I’m still playing catch up so this review is from months ago because I’m the world’s slowest (and probably worst) food blogger. BlueSea is an unassuming Vietnamese fusion restaurant located in a small San Jose shopping plaza. The inside reminds me of a bubble... Continue
