Ruminations and recipes from a small kitchen in a big city.


Goodbye Mr Gregurek.

Ten great things about Vlado's:

No menu.

Its old decor that ignores 'cutting edge' restaurant design.

The meat.

The irony-free large picture of contented cows on the wall.

The waiters who have been there forever.

The cabbage salad.

Its old-fashioned friendliness with no attitude.

The window on to the grill, not the street.

Its continuity in a world of fads.

Vlado himself: a humble man who cooked the best steaks in Australia.

A sad passing KH...fortunately though, Vlados restaurant will continue. Won't be quite the same of course but it'll still be there
