De Grill – Sunshine Plaza

IMG_2971

Public Service Announcement!

We have a new place to feed on when we catch on Tightarse-Tuesdays in Sunshine that isn’t Mambos! Rising from the ashes of from the now closed Dick Smith is De Grill (DG).  DG proves to a be a mix of modern and trendy, a long overdue injection of fresh air in Sunshine. We do have some promising places opening up soon. (More to come!)

Located right next to KFC and in prime location to lure curious moviegoers, I couldn’t help myself either and came on opening night. We were told there was free coffee (all types) just for that day. Score.

Sunshine Social – Sunshine

IMG_2857

I get a warm feeling in my heart when a new place open in my neck of woods. It’s like finding a $20 note in your pocket that you forgot about from last year.  Sunshine Social’s located on Glengala Road and if you’re whizzing about on your daily cruise you may just miss it. I like to keep my ears and eyes open because you gotta watch out for freshmen when there’s a new kid on the block.

I just came back from a week-long trip from Vietnam and was grateful to escape the humidity but was welcomed by Australia’s cold embrace. It’s good to be home.

Burger Kitchen – Moonee Ponds

IMG_2684

Can we have a minute and appreciate how great social media is and how much it’s done for food in the last 5 years or so?! There used to be a disconnect between the restaurant and the customer. The only way for us to be connected was through visiting, word of mouth and of course Urbanspoon reviews! Old school bloggers will know.

These days, we can follow new restaurants that hasn’t even opened yet, long-time establishments and they can tempt us with their goodies at a swipe of a thumb! With everyone constantly connected, we’re more closer to that burger or chicken wing than we ever thought. If you got burgers, post a shyte load of food pics online and you’re based in the West – expect a visit from me!

Laurie Dee’s – Epping

IMG_2665

So, I’m currently on a burger bender (again) and I don’t know how to stop it. Frankly, I’m not sure if I want it to stop. Maybe I’m transcending beyond my human shell and a few burgers away from attaining enlightenment. Or my arteries are clogged beyond comprehension and blocking all rational thought leading to my ultimate demise, death by patty.

Yours truly was being a decent human being and volunteered his time with Mr. Brunswick towards cleaning certain lakes. Long story, we got hella hangry. We also scheduled ourselves that Laurie Dee’s was on the way home from our volunteer day. I wish I was this prepared when food isn’t involved.

Side note: Sorry! I know I’ve been away for a month. I was in Vietnam for a few weeks (I have some pics of the food I ate there on Instagram!). Back to normal schedule this week!

Piccolo Me – CBD – Russell St [Lunch Crawl]

IMG_2643

Have you ever seen something so inherently genius that you can’t fathom the fact it has never existed before? Piccolo Me is not just another cafe quenching the unending thirst of Melbourne’s coffee addicts. No, Piccolo Me holds the answer for exactly what happens when two things that are awesome combine and create a product that is diabolically sinful.

Piccolo holds the Croissant burger. I’ll let that sink in for a moment. Folks, this is how super villains are born. This is Piccolo Me’s origin story and The Hungry Moustache is going to eat it.

La Roche – St Kilda

IMG_2630

I did mention I was going to eat my way around St Kilda a lot more often and here we are! I’m a simpleton, if you take great photos of fried chicken, burgers and/or pizzas on your Instagram feed one thing is going to happen. You’re going to get a follower who stalks you for at least a one month probation period before he drags his rag-tag group of mates in an attempt to decimate your menu.

Keyword: attempt.

La Roche stands on the corner of the foot traffic heavy, Acland Street. It’s no surprise that they’re packed to the rafters on a lazy Sunday afternoon but we did manage to nab a table outside. Copious amounts of face stuffing, here we come!
