Selera Singapore Asli

Selera Singapore Asli is a feel-at-home restaurant located in Forest Hill. What attracts us to go to this restaurant from time to time, particularly on a Sunday morning is the Nasi Lemak served on banana leaf, reminding us of how Nasi Lemak is sold and served back home in Malaysia. Not only do they have Nasi Lemak, but also other Malay menu like Nasi Briyani and Lontong.

Selera Singapore Asli is located on 334 Springvale Rd, Forest Hill. 03 9878 0310
Opening hours are from Wed-Sun, 10am-10pm.

Little Malaysia Restaurant @ Melbourne CBD

Little Malaysia Restaurant is another Malaysian restaurant that caters for a finer dining experience. Most of the meal is priced over AUD10. We had a taste of their Nasi Lemak and Teh Ais and found that although the Nasi Lemak is different than the typical traditional Nasi Lemak, their coconut rice, beef rendang and sambal ikan bilis were tasty. Little Malaysia do serve Halal meat upon request, as they provide limited stock of Halal chicken/beef/lamb daily. So if you plan to have dinner at Little Malaysia Restaurant, you can give them a call in advance for a reservation of the Halal menu.

Little Malaysia Restaurant is located on 26, Liverpool St, Melbourne. 03 9662 1678 or 03 9662 1662.

Yarra River @ Melbourne CBD

Whether you're visiting or temporarily residing in Melbourne, we feel that taking a walk is a definite must. Along the Yarra River, you can enjoy the Melbourne CBD edges, while immersing yourself in the various pocket spaces, bridges, and places to sit all along the river. If you're an energetic walker, you can start walking from Birrarung Mar all the way towards South Wharf. For a shorter start, you can begin from Southbank or Flinders Street Station. Either way, take your time to stroll along this promenade.
