Rambo’s Kebab, Clayton

When people think of kebabs they think of a drunken night out and stumbling to the closest van or food truck to grab a big ol’ kebab to sober up. You all know about HSP packs and kebabs but have you had a HSP burger? No? Let me take you down to Rambo’s Kebabs in Clayton. Situated right next to the petrol station, you can either park at the servo or on the side street. The staff are friendly and efficient and will make sure you get your drunken (or in my case sober) feed.

Scoopy Milk Bar, Melbourne

Scoopy Milk Bar is the first Bingsu specialty dessert bar located in HWKR Food court. Its bright store with cute stickers and delicious mountainous shaved ice, you are definitely in for a treat. Various flavours AND happy staff, make sure you nab a table because you’re going to need to sit down to eat these bad boys.

Matcha lovers, the matcha bonsai is for you. Bitterness from the matcha, sweetness from the condensed milk and fluffiness from the whipped cream, it was fantabulous!

XS Roasting Kitchen, Mulgrave

Another work day another lunch place to check out and this time it was XS roasting kitchen. It was a quick lunch so we browsed the cabinet for some goodies instead of having a sit down meal prepared for us. The staff were friendly and it wasn’t super busy which was a surprise. There were plenty of seats inside and out, so depending on the weather there’s plenty of seating options.

I got a zaatar with salami, feta and tomatoes and it was pretty good. It was a touch on the salty side and I think (I forgot to take note of the price) it was $10 which is a bit on the expensive side.

XS Roasting Kitchen is a cute place for a quick lunch and I would love to come back and check out the rest of the menu.

Biggie Smalls, Windsor

A night out in town means a night of snacking! We stumbled our way towards Biggie Smalls in Windsor at 11pm and there was hardly anyone there. We got in and was served real quick. With hip hop playing in the background, the food turned up oh so quick and we were famished!

Ma Long Kitchen and Dumplings, Mulgrave

There’s not a lot of seating so you either gotta get there early or you just have it takeaway. So line up, tuck in and get ready for those dumplings!

Pho Village – Brandon Park Shopping Centre, Wheelers Hill

It’s lunchtime at work and we ventured out to Brandon Park Shopping Centre for a bit of Vietnamese food. Well, specifically pho for Ms Curly Fries and for me, Bun Bo Hue (BBH). We headed to Pho Village in the Brandon Park food court and yep, it’s crowded but the service was real quick. For only $11 you can get a steaming bowl of pho. Unfortunately I didn’t get a photo of the pho but it was pretty good pho. It was light, had all the right flavours and it was enough to me safe and warm. Definitely a recommended dish.

I went for the BBH and boy was that a mistake. It didn’t have the right flavours and it tasted very diluted which was a shame.

Bun Bo Hue – $11

If you’re in the area and want a pretty decent pho from a food court, I’d definitely recommend Pho Village. However, just keep in mind to just get the pho and steer clear of the BBH.

MKS Spices’n Things, Dandenong

Working around the South East suburbs, a colleague suggested we hit up MKS Spices’n Things for some quick and delicious Sri Lankan food for our quick lunch. There’s plenty of parking around but unfortunately it’s all paid parking which was a shame. MKS is a grocery store out front and a quick eats round the back. Now, don’t come here expecting awesome sauce service because it’s a quick feed and it does get busy.

Lune Croissanterie, Melbourne

The legendary Lune Croissanterie. Croissant lovers all know about this cult eatery and all the lining up you have to do in the original Fitzroy store and since I’m not really a morning person, I’ve never done it. So when they opened up a store on Collins Street, it means I can definitely check it out. So when I had a free weekday, I took mumsy and daddy bear into the city to check out Lune.

Dragon Hotpot – Swanston St, Melbourne

I’m not a huge fan of hotpot so when the girlies from my old work place wanted to catch up over hotpot, I hesitated but of course agreed to our little outing. We were meeting up at Dragon Hotpot on Swanston street and luckily it wasn’t super busy on a Wednesday night. It’s quite a small venue so there isn’t a lot of seating so guys, first in first served and there’s usually a long line of customers trying to get a table.
