Reviews of Melbourne's Minamishima and Tipo 00 - Two of the City's Hottest Restaurants

I was recently back in the Land Down Under to try out some new restaurants spend some time with family.  My choices: the sushi specialist Minamishima, a winner of two hats and Victoria's Restaurant of the Year, and the one-hatted Tipo 00, named Victoria's Best New Restaurant.

Sweet Singapore 2: Frederic Deshayes of Do.Main Bakery, Tanjong Katong

A trek down Tanjong Katong Road from Paya Lebar MRT found me outside the almost-year old do.main Bakery, run by globetrotting patissier and boulanger Frédéric Deshayes.  The 45-year old native of Rambouillet, France (perhaps best known in recent times as being the venue for diplomatic discussions on the Yugoslavia-Kosovo conflict) set up do.main, his maiden Singaporean venture, after some nine years as chief pastry and bakery instructor at the at-Sunrice Cooking Academy.
