Bun Bun Bakery, Springvale

I’m a Nhu Lan kinda gal when it comes to banh mi thit so when someone says to check out a Vietnamese pork roll joint, my mind instantly goes into using Nhu Lan as the standard. Bun Bun Bakery wasn’t too busy when we got there. Like every other Banh Mi joint, it doesn’t have seating and it’s a quick in and out kinda place.

La Bohemia, Nobel Park

La Bohemia cafe is a little gem hidden away in Nobel Park. It’s small, cute and ran but friendly staff. We ordered our meals the day before (we had that day) so we could eat quickly and get back to the grind after lunch. The food came out quick smart and we were ready to chow down.

Ma Long Kitchen and Dumplings, Mulgrave

Another little spot for work lunch and this time there’s DUMPLINGS! Ma Long Kitchen Dumplings is located in Nexus court surrounded by other cafes and business blocks, it definitely gets busy. 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.

Verdict: 🍷🍷🍷
Food: 🍷🍷🍷
Service: 🍷🍷🍷
Value: 🍷🍷🍷

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.

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.

Shujinko – Flinders Street, Melbourne

The 24/7 ramen chain Shujinko has been rapidly expanding and is up to their third store when we were asked to visit, of course we couldn’t say no. Located on Flinders St and opposite Flinders Street station, it is in a very busy spot but that means there’s plenty of foot traffic hence a lot of business. Inside isn’t the biggest eatery but it was very cosy and the staff are superbly friendly.

Mr Ramen San, Melbourne

I’ve been looking for different ramen places to check out and a friend had suggested Mr Ramen San in Little Bourke Street so I ventured in and it’s a very small and cosy place so be prepared to wait outside. Pro tip, you need everyone in your party present before you can even get a table and boys and girls, it does get buy around dinner time. Anywho, walking in, the staff were super duper friendly and we got right into ordering our meals.
