Inspired by the vintage Brunswick culture, the Saleh family have opened up a hidden gem just under our noses, in the heart of Thomastown. No matter what season the outdoor courtyard with its iron-wood heaters, makes it perfect for an after work sip or a satisfying hearty meal in the colder months. The courtyard walls are drenched with street art and the landscaping is extremely organic and playful with its white picket fences, vintage lawn furniture and fairy lights draping above like a blanket of twinkling stars. The decor is an eclectic collection of old and new. Modern stainless steels mixed with vintage furniture such as old typewriters, television sets and brass trinkets surround the room.

Taking their experience from working in such restaurants as Grossi Florentino on Bourke and The Italian now on Collins the menu is saturated with integrity. Everything from the pasta to the strawberry eton mess is home-made and delicious. The menu throughout although supplying traditional meals has a modern urban twist. Examples of this include; the mouth watering stacked pancakes with orange mascarpone and mixed berry compote or the traditional florentine served with sauteed spinach and herb mushrooms on a potato rosti drizzled with hollandaise.

Being the food connoisseurs that we think we are, we thought we’d try something for the vegetarian and the meat lover. Taking Mark Saleh’s recommendation, we were lucky enough to indulge in the vegetarian risotto made with butternut pumpkin, fried eggplant, spicy zucchini, goats cheese and tangy lemon zest. Although absolutely scrumptious we couldn’t resist the sight of the rustic sausage and peppers pizza. But it wasn’t over there, being the undeniable sweet lovers that we are, dessert wasn’t even a question. To satisfy our sweet tooth we couldn’t go past the white chocolate Nutella pizza served with vanilla bean ice-cream (We are still salivating thinking about this now!).

By this time we were extremely satisfied, even more so upon receiving our bill, on the discovery of how incredibly priced our banquet actually was! With prices from as little as $3.50 for breakfast (fruit toast with condiments) to the most being $15 (seafood pasta) for a main, you will encounter a delectable meal at an affordable price.

What we really loved most about our experience was the great atmosphere and vibe the Saleh family has brought to St Alexanders Kitchen. It was great a pleasure and honor to see the unity of this talented family and we will surely be returning soon.

NAKED FOR SATAN

Posted in aussie greatness, Eating in all it's splendour, Eco Friendly Goodness, effing amazing., freakin cheap, Keep an eye on it, we like., what the fruck, wonderfully famous. with tags , , , , , , , , , on May 4, 2011 by streetcredthread

Ok here at street cred we are not ALL about fashion but food, music, art AND and building lifestyles.

There is a hidden gem in Melbourne and I know maybe writing about will expose its glory and over populate it BUT we want EVERYONE to enjoy this experience as much as we did!!!

HISTORY

Ok so in 1928 this dude Leon Satanovich fled from Russia to Australia and based himself in Melbourne sadly after seeing his family perish back home. Leon had a few jobs one being a cleaner but in his heart he was an entrepreneurial man and a vodka maker..just like his grandfather.

The name naked for Satan came from obviously his surname but as every Aussie has a nickname Santanovich was way to long, so Satan it was!

Long story short, during the Great Depression alcohol was expensive and rare, so Satan would share his secret creation with anyone that would help. Oh did I forget to mention that?!?! It was a secret location and empty warehouse space in Fitzroy ( the hidden gem)

During Summer in Melbourne the heat coupled with the steam coming off the boilers was almost unbearable for Satan so we would work day after day in his undies, so that’s how he coined the phrase “Naked for Satan”

Now back in the day this place was such a secret that for those who would partake in the experience would only be allowed in if they use the super secret phrase “Lets get naked for Satan”….

If you want to enjoy the amazing drinks and spanish tapas for only $2.00 each (and .50 cents during the hours of 2.00 and 4.00) visit Naked for Satan at ..

Layer me pretty ♥

Ok, so here is the story. Since we are based in Melbourne Australia, issues involved with Melb are sure to come up like….our Summer weather TERRIBLE TERRIBLE!! Since it has not stopped raining people are steering away from colour as they are depressed and miserable because they can not get a tan..LISTEN UP! Just because your clothes say ” I am depressed” does mean your jewellery has to as well! LAYER ME PRETTY!

DIY jewellery, layer up your bangles anything that is OTT and fabulous! I went to SPOTLIGHT the other day and just bought beads, leather, fabric etc and just started tying, cutting, sewing and ripping things apart to create little home-made masterpieces of my own ( and they are great cheap gifts with a bit of heart attached)

This rule of everything and anything layered applies to all sexes..just have a little fun with it!

A sweet new scent

Posted in A sweet scent, effing amazing., freakin cheap with tags , , , , on December 6, 2010 by streetcredthread

Dani first introduced me to Scarlett by Cacharel — and i loved it. It smells even better when it is on you than when it does fresh out of the bottle. So anyway, despite the perfume being around for a while, the point of my post is you are able to buy it at MyChemist for $2o (!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) … It usually sells for $80 at all the chain stores. Perfect for summer ladies, so get on it. It will be the best smelling $20 you ever spend.
