Stephie’s Visit : Food Galore !

26 Oct

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

Acardia : New Breakie Place !

8 Jul
Arcadia
193 Gertrude Street
Fitzroy 3065

Tel: (03)94161055

When I was home for the last couple of months, baby told me about this breakfast place he came to with his supervisor. Us being huge fans of pesto, baby said I had to try their Italian eggs and their chai latte (but of course)! So the day after I arrived, baby immediately brought me there for breakfast after Mass. (:

Weekends are PACKED. We had to put our names on the waiting list. But service was pretty good and efficient, so we got our tables in less than 5 mins! So we quickly settled in, and chose what we wanted and ordered. But for some reason, our coffee and chai latte took ages to come and so did our food. Maybe they forgot our order? I hope so.

that aside, how cute are the things that they use in the cafe? It’s so english somehow and just feel like you’re relaxing outdoors. love it!

and my chai soy latte came in this cute little pot with a side of honey! (:

i, of course, was a very happy girl. (: especially when the food came!

my Italian eggs : scrambled eggs, pesto wrapped with slices of prosciutto.

my eggs were cooked to perfection, creamy and smooth, super generous with their pesto and everything just goes perfectly with the saltiness of the prosciutto.

Baby’s Mexican eggs : poached eggs, with avocado, tomato and coriander salsa! It was good! (:

the eggs were poached to perfection.

Baby had to finish my portion cause it was huge! haha (: lucky for me, he has a bigger appetite during winter! hehe

I had a chance to play with Cheok’s Nikon D40X. It’s quite fun and cool! haha my hands are itching again. *breathe* Need to find a part time job and save money! (:

and what makes it even better? Everyone gets a complimentary Green & Black’s organic chocolate! (: Never tried organic chocolate before, and I must say, this is good chocolate. And the bits of butterscotch within every bite, AWESOME.

Thanks for bringing me there sweetie (: love you!

one more shot of the food, just because.

Food Post : French Toast

17 Apr

what is your favourite meal of the day? Breakfast, lunch, dinner or supper? Tea maybe? hehe without a doubt, mine is breakfast. Especially having breakfast with my loved ones. We could sit there for an hour or two just enjoying our food, coffee (probably a chai latte) and talking about everything that is happening around us.

my favourite kind of breakfast? Anything that has fruits and eggs and toast! Combine them together, I would say my favourite thing to have for breakfast is French toast or pancakes! hehe But I wouldn’t say I will turn down a good eggs benedict either! haha (:

we went to Safeway a couple of days back and we saw this loaf of bread that I just couldn’t resist. Scones is a big favourite of me and my mum’s and when I saw scones toast, I had to get my hands on them! hehe and the only thing I want to make with them, is french toast! hehe and I did today (:

the thickness of the toast was just right and the fresh bananas complimented the sweetness of everything. Absolutely loved how it turned out! A perfect piece of toast for this dish!
