Komeyui - Best Japanese Restaurant in Melbourne?

 photo komeyui melbourne otoro sushi.jpg
Japanese food in Melbourne is highly disappointing. I didn't find a Japanese restaurant that I will revisit until I visited Komeyui in Port Melbourne. I heard that the restaurant is frequented by many Japanese nationals. That definitely says something about the standard of the food here. After we've taken our seats, we were presented with a menu of the day, and the usual menu. I have to say that the menu is pretty extensive!

Matilda 159 - Scott Pickett's New Restaurant in South Yarra

 photo matilda 159 dinner.jpg
Everyone knows of Scott Pickett, and everyone knows of Estelle by Scott Pickett(ESP). Widely regarded as one of the best restaurants in Melbourne, ESP has shut its doors after the hugely successful opening of Matilda 159 at Domain in South Yarra. Matilda 159 sits in a quiet neighbourhood, and occupies the middle spot in a row of popular restaurants. We made a reservation about 2 weeks in advance, and I'll advise that you make one as early as possible to secure better timeslots, or even a table at all.

Treasury on Collins - The Best Boutique Hotel in Melbourne

 photo Treasury on Collins Hotel Melbourne.jpg
Treasury on Collins turned 5 in 2018, but the young boutique hotel actually has a really rich history — it dates back to 1838. The plot of land that Treasury on Collins sits on had been occupied by a bank, and 2 different hotels before Treasury on Collins Apartment Hotel took over and grandly reopened in 2013. Located prominently on Collins Street in the heart of the CBD, the heritage hotel offers huge suites, loft apartments, and one or two-bedroom apartments. The suites come equipped with kitchenette, washing machine/dryer, living area with sofa and a 40" television with Netflix while the one and two-bedroom apartments have a separate living area, dining area, and a fully functioning kitchen that's furnished with a dishwasher and stove top.

Jungsik - Best Two-Michelin-Starred Restaurant in Seoul

 photo Jungsik michelin seoul.jpg
Jungsik is a two-Michelin-starred restaurant in Seoul and New York. 25th on the World's 50 Best Restaurants list, Jungsik specialises in what they call New Korean Fine Dining. You can expect contemporary and creative Korean cuisine that's prepared with familiar and traditional ingredients. It's not easy scoring a table here, so do make your reservations way in advance. For me, Jungsik could very well be the best restaurant in all of Seoul. Every dish here was mind-blowing, and left a deep impression. The elegant restaurant sits in one of the most upscale areas —Cheongdam Dong in Gangnam — and dinner here might burn a small hole in your pocket, but I promise you that you'll find every penny extremely well spent.
