Raffles reviews China Republic

While BOYEATSWORLD has always been about food, travel and culture as seen through the eyes of my son Raffles and his two-year old sister Sugarpuff, the stories have always been told by me (their mum).  But my six-year old foodie, who is also a keen storyteller, has decided it’s time to commandeer “his” blog and get a little more involved in the creation of its content.

Given that he can’t type and its a little hard to blog in crayon I asked him what exactly he had in mind and he came up with Raffles Reviews, which I think is mostly an excuse for him to eat more. Here Raffles will share all the deets about where, what and how he’s been eating, in his own words, transcribed by his mama/secretary/slave (for the sake of legibility).

He is only six so please don’t expect The Good Food Guide here, just simple, honest and blessedly brief restaurant reviews and foodie tips from a boy who loves to eat. Please indulge this mum and her hungry boy as I am keen to encourage his desire to share his stories and improve his storytelling skills.

Embudito at Movida Next Door, Melbourne

Raffles reviews: Movida Next Door

Deciding where to have lunch in Melbourne was really hard because there were so many places to choose from. Mama wouldn’t let me eat at them all so I had to pick just one. Not fair. While we were arguing over where to eat (I wanted sashimi and daddy wanted Chinese) we went for a walk in […] Read more…

Raffles reviews // Porteño, Surry Hills

“Argentina is in South America. Porteño is in Surry Hills which is not in South America, it’s in Sydney but it is still Argentinean because that’s the food they make. And it’s really, really cool. I liked Porteño as soon as we arrived because it’s big and comfortable and they played rock music which I […] Read more…

Raffles reviews: China Republic

At China Republic it is pretty dark and there are statues of warriors. It reminds me a bit of the place where Master Croc and Master Ox are locked up in Gonmen City in Kung Fu Panda. I love Kung Fu Panda and I love food so I think it’s AWESOME! While mummy and I […] Read more…

Raffles at Mamak with a Kari Ikan

Raffles reviews: Mamak Chatswood

“Mamak is one of my favourite places to eat. I like everything about it.  The nasi lemak is so good I could eat it everyday – the rice is coconutty and the crunchy ikan bilis (anchovies) are like the best ever salty chips and I like the cucumber but I’m not so sure about the […] Read more…
