IMGP7196

Awhile back, Alex surprised me with a fancy night out to celebrate completing my first semester of grad school. He didn’t tell me where we were going, and instead led me up a dark alleyway off of Smith Street to a large, yellow door. Inside was a dark restaurant, built around a large bar in…

IMGP7400

Earlier this week, we were lucky enough to receive some sauces from Roza’s Gourmet Sauces- a family-owned company based in Brisbane that makes all-natural, gluten-free delights. Anyone who knows me knows that I am a lover of all things saucy- dips, marinades…the list goes on. So I was delighted when Roza’s gave us their Chilli Ginger…

Simple Sesame & Garlic Noodles

IMGP7390

Here at Boy Meets Girl Meets Food, we love a good noodle dish. However, I often find that they can become quite heavy and drowned out with sauces, so yesterday I set about making a light and simple noodle dish (to accompany a special recipe coming tomorrow!). For this dish, you will need the following:…

Top Paddock holds the kind of brunch notoriety reserved for LA’s top West Hollywood spots- which made it the perfect spot for a reunion with my old LA work manager! When we arrived on a Sunday morning the place was practically bursting at the seams with eager eaters, waiting to be seated. After an extended…

In April, 400 Gradi exploded onto the food scene after taking home the top prize at the Pizza World Championship, held in Italy. Everyone in Melbourne was flocking to try and get a bite of the world’s best pizza, and one Wednesday evening Alex and I were lucky enough to get seats at the bar…

When Rue & Co (the popup eatery on Collins Street featuring Kong, Jimmy Grants and St. Ali) first opened up, I meandered over to Kong for some chicken wings and never looked back. So I was delighted to head over to Kong the full restaurant in Richmond earlier this week, and needless to say, it…

Beetroot Subji

My mother, while an incredible cook, rarely ventures outside of her comfort zone while cooking Indian food. However, that changed about a year ago, when she discovered the magic that is the farmer’s market. One day she came home holding a bunch of beets (literally), and out of having no idea what to do with…

A few weeks ago, while some of our close friends were visiting, we visited Ańada for dinner. We opted to do their Chef’s Tasting menu, which allowed for us to relax and sip sangria while dish after dish arrived at our table. First up were oysters, which were so fresh and paired with just the…

Harissa Spiced Freekeh with Honey Roasted Vegetables

freekeh

Late last year, I discovered a lovely grain that is now being hailed as a leader in 2014’s round of new ‘superfoods’- freekeh. Freekeh is a grain slightly similar to barley, but it can be a bit fiddly to cook with- the first time we used it we were a little freaked out by the…
