Wagamama revisited: food without sole

The first Melbourne food bloggers meet is this Wednesday. We were to have met at the new Wagamama in Flinders Lane. Somehow I hijacked them and have now arranged to meet at The Trust instead. It made me think of what to do with the Frequent Noodler Card and $50 voucher sent to me by the so-called cult restaurant.

Food blogging arrives in Australia. Or does it?

Food blogging has arrived in Australia. At least an article about food blogging was spruiked on the front page of the Sydney Morning Herald yesterday and the front page of Good Living. The shame of it is that the article, excellent in itself and written by the excellent Jay Rayner, was first published in The Observer about six weeks ago and didn’t really go into the local scene.I’m not complaining because Tomato was missed – we are a Melbourne blog […]
