Melbourne has so much to offer. I love experiencing new places and events and sharing them with you.
I have an interest in gluten free, vegan and vegetarian diets so I will let you know if you these can be catered for in my reviews.

Who knows why they decided to call this Japanese restaurant, 'Disco Beans' or why they have these things on the tables?
The gyoza was excellent and possibly the favourite of the night. Filled with organic tempeh, mushroom, garlic and chives, they were really tasty and served with a divine sauce.
We also had Yuka's Okonomiyaki, a potato pancake made with gluten free grains, green onion, ginger, and vegetables, topped with homemade mayonnaise and sweet okonomiyaki sauce. We practically inhaled the edamame (boiled and salted whole soybeans) and couldn't not order the disco don (marinated tofu, served with sauce, alongside fresh vegetables and rice) just because it sounded like a party we didn't want to miss.
We followed the meal with cake (of course, it was a party). Chocolate and banana cake with soy icecream and blueberry sauce. It was on the specials board and was chocolatey, fudgy and delicious, especially the sauce, which added another dimension to the dessert. They also have raw cheesecake (vegan) on the menu which may be worth a try.
What an awesome experience. The service was genuine and relaxed, the vibe was ultra cool but not cold. Walls and ceilings were adorned with art which made it just such an interesting space to be in.
