    Lucy Liu - New pan-tastic pan-Asian in Melbourne

    Melbourne's passionate, ongoing love affair with Asian cuisine is no secret – it seems every local big gun is taking aim squarely at the myriad flavour-packed morsels popular across the continent’s street stalls and dining halls.

    But even in a market as competitive as this one, you sit up and notice when a restaurateur of Michael Lambie’s (of The Smith and Circa fame) stature dips his toe in - namely with his vibey new Oliver Lane hang, Lucy Liu.

    Ping Pong - Gin gem in Hong Kong

    Though Hong Kong's burgeoning dining scene continues to spread its wings east and west from Central, emerging nabe Sai Ying Pun, while rapidly developing, still bears more than a passing resemblance to its former urban mish-mash self. It's almost guaranteed you'll walk right by the unassuming poppy-red façade of Ping Pong 129 Gintonería.

    But whatever you do, don't give up looking, as your perseverance will be rewarded with one of the most niche, finger-on-the-pulse imbibing experiences certainly this area, and indeed the city has to offer.

    Born of a collaboration between quintessentially French fashion house Hermès and Chinese artistic director Jiang Qiong Er, the label effortlessly made the 'Made in China' tag one to covet on the Mainland, and its subsequent move to the European market via Paris seems only a natural next step.

    Roberta Sudbrack - Rio's Original Celebrity Chef

    While it’s true that Sao Paulo has the lion’s share of fine Brazilian cuisine, sister Rio hides a handful of delicious secrets up her sleeve... just ask Roberta to show you the goods.

    Years ago, nobody knew the name Roberta Sudbrack, except for the former Brazilian President for whom she served as private cook. Later, she set off to open the eponymous Roberta Sudbrack... and now, seven years on, her restaurant is ranked 10th on the illustrious S. Pellegrino’s Latin America’s 50 Best Restaurants list, with the woman herself a bonafide local celebrity, and arguably Brazil’s most famous female chef.
