Review: Monk Bodhi Dharma Cafe

After successfully follow Cindy & Michael’s suggestion of trying Bayte cafe for brunch I had no hesitation trying out another cafe that they raved about in recent weeks – Monk Bodhi Dharma in Balaclava. Tucked away down a back lane way off Carlisle Street I probably would have never found this place, but I’m very glad I did! The have an entirely vegetarian (and egg free) menu and most items are able to be vegan-ised, made gluten free and in some cases sugar free as well. Impressive!

Review: Woodspoon Kitchen

One recent Saturday night B and I headed to Woodspoon Kitchen on Smith Street in Collingwood for dinner. We had been years ago (actually, on our second date!) and had really enjoyed it, so decided it was time to go back and feast on some delicious Japanese food. Woodspoon has a large number of vegetarian and vegan options and they are all clearly marked, which is always a plus. There’s nothing worse than ordering something that sounds vegetarian only to find out when it arrives that it’s not!

The theory being that the liquid nitrogen causes the gelato to freeze faster resulting in creamier, smoother gelato. Plus, there’s also the spectacle of seeing liquid nitrogen!

I had been meaning to check it out for ages and had been recently reminded of this fact when I read Libby’s review on her blog The Very Very Hungry Caterpillar so decided I couldn’t pass the opportunity up and detoured via the van on my way home to finally see what all the fuss was about!

Cafe Review: Ici Cafe

One of my favourite things about living in Collingwood/Fitzroy is the abundance of quality cafes dotted through the backstreets. It means that not only is there no shortage of great food, but if one place is full you can hopefully find a seat at another cafe nearby! Recently we’ve been trying out a few cafes that we’ve walked past a million times but never ventured inside, and that’s how we ended up at Ici one Sunday morning. (more…)
