Whenever friends come over to Melbourne, the only thing I want to really do is to bring them to my favourite places to eat! and that’s absolutely what I did when Stephie came over! (: of course, we didn’t finish all the food in one day! haha
First stop : Dumplings Plus
Unfortunately, I didn’t take the main dish for the meal, which was the stewed belly of pork cause we were too excited and too hungry! haha but we also had a few starters, which I did take.
this is a house favourite : beancurd with century egg. but there was a little too little century egg for our liking!
of course we can’t not order a serve of pan fried dumplings at Dumplings Plus! haha these were yummy with alot of vinegar! slurps.
The Beatles vs. U2
Oh! we also had the crispy chicken which was really good! (: haha once again, too hungry and forgot to snap photos!
Stop Two : Roule Galette
CREPES! hehe and not just any kind of crepes, NUTELLA crepe!
that’s how happy we were that Stephie is back in Melbourne! hehe
wouldn’t be complete without hot drinks on a cold day! (: hot chocs, flat white and espresso!
Steph is super happy with her hot choc! (:
Stop Three : Lord of the Fries
I will always bring friends here. cause they do have the best fries and the best topping ever. Those who are weight conscious… this might not be the best choice. haha but it’s SO GOOD. really. I kid you not!
of course I was talking about FRENCH CANADIAN! hahaha this deserves a close up shot!
how good is that? sinful, but good. Isn’t that always the case? haha
Stop Four : Verb Cafe
We had to bring Steph to our favourite brunch place at Newmarket and she loved it! hehe
She ordered the Field Mushrooms, which had a portobello mushroom, caramelised onions, spinach and goat’s cheese on toast! YUMMERSS! but too much spinach left a tart feeling in Steph’s mouth haha. took a while for it to go away!
I had their special : corn cakes with bacon, chilli and sour cream. Absolutely divine. I go back every week hoping it’s still on the special board. haha (: definitely my favourite!
and Baby and Cheok had the big breakfast! This was baby’s usual Sat morning brunch hehe
Chai Soy latte for me and a large cup of latte for my baby hehe
Stop Five : Greens @ Brunswick
We wanted to bring Steph to Minimo’s but it was close on Tuesdays. So we brought her to Greens instead! Crowded as usual, we sneaked in and found ourselves a seat next to the kitchen haha. so here’s what we had!
Steph loves pesto. Ever since we had the weekly dinners I knew she loves pesto. haha so she ordered a pesto, veg and ham panini which was huge and good! hehe
I ordered the potato stack with haloumi, bacon, tomatoes and a poached egg! this was so good. I tell you, anything in a stack. haha just order it!
So in the span of 2 days (yes just 2!!!) we finished all these food. haha we’re GOOOD. hehe See u next year back here Stephie! (: oh but i will see u in Spore real soon! hehe
