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.

Maha is a multi – award winning restaurant in the heart of Melbourne. With One Chef's Hat in the The Age Good food Guide, 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012, as well as other awards Maha is consistently excellent.
It is one of my personal favourites. I love the whole experience. From the moment the door is opened for you, the service, the menu, the lighting and décor and of course the food, is simply delightful.
When you enter, the distinctive aroma of incense and middle eastern spices transports you far away from the centre of Melbourne and into a world rich is fragrance and culture.
At the long feature bar you can order from the cocktail list, henry's nightcap (havana club bianco rum, aperol, massenez pomme verte over grapefruit juice ice cubes), or my favourite turkish delight (cariel vanilla vodka, massenez rose vodka, lillet blanc, amaro montenegro and rose water). Cocktails are $19 each. Team it up with one or more of the unusual bar menu items.
If you chose to dine in, you can have a private dining room, or the restaurant. The menu offers degustation – six or eight course which I have indulged it. They also have the Soufra – which are the chefs choice for your table, with matching wines if you chose. You may also have a la carte of you prefer, with plenty of dishes to share, for example persian fried baby eggplant, tahini mayo.
