Asian street food & cocktails


Aside from the fabulous artwork on the walls, this little gem in Bridge Rd Richmond will delight your taste-sense and stomach! Jes and the gang opened on May 2nd 2015, and have a terrific concept to share with Melbournians. They serve a healthy rice bun served as a burger with all the trappings, and it tastes delicious! The drinks are refreshingly Asian oriented, and there are other unique meals on the menu - I am always one to enjoy new and delightful meals, and I just adore this place! Aside from the food, you cannot get better service - always made welcome and greeted with a smile. Try it and be surprised!

JLP Melbourne
Quality leather goods


For years (actually since 1993) JLP have been leaders in quality authentic leather goods supplying locally and internationally. The main intentions right from inception is to provide the most authentic leather bags, wallets, satchels, and other goods via excellent customer service. You can visit them at their Queen Victoria Market stall where it all began, or check them out online - and the incredible range will astonish. I still recall the bags and wallets purchased there still outliving all the other so-called leather products I've purchased from other retails. You just can't beat this product - in strength, quality of the leather, and the care taken in the manufacture. Mino prides himself in his work - and it shows. His trustworthy product and experience can be relied upon over and over again - I reckon his products will outlast even him!
