Supper Inn, Melbourne

Mumsy and Daddy Bear wanted to take us out for midnight congee so they took us to their hangout joint Supper Inn. Supper Inn has been around FOREVER and they are known to serve up midnight congee and are open into the wee hours of the morning. When we arrived, the restaurant was 3/4 full and luckily we didn’t need to wait to get a seat. Located in an alley way, it may seem dodgy but it is well known for those who are peckish and do not want maccas or kebabs. We got the menu and of course mumsy and daddy bear got congee.

The congee was well congee. The parents found it to be exactly like how it use to be, average. It was soupy and needed salt and pepper added to it.

Chop Shop, Melbourne CBD

Mr D and I haven’t been around in the CBD in a while and we needed to refuel before we hit the town for some drinkies. Walking down Swanston street, we eyed Chop Shop and of course Mr D is all for Korean and this place promised Modern KBBQ. We skipped inside and since it was only 5:30PM on a Saturday night (yep, we eat at elderly people time) there weren’t a lot of customers around.

Da Rin – Korean Fried Chicken, Melbourne CBD

An outing with the stooges can only mean one thing, GLORIOUS FOOD! Since I was no longer a westie *cries silently inside* this meant that we had to eat in the CBD. Stooge 1 was craving Korean food and we decided on Da Rin in Bourke Street. We made a booking for a Tuesday night but when we arrived, it wasn’t busy at all so we just walked straight in. We were seated at our tables and the cutlery were oh so cute, like it was telling us “get ready for some food in ya belly”.

Hakata Gensuke, Melbourne

Hakata Gensuke, the place where I’ve been told has the closest ramen to what they have in Japan (big claim I say). With our bellies empty and expectations high, the babies and I lined up outside to snag a table. We queued up around 15 minutes and the staff had given us an ordering sheet so once we got inside, everything would be super efficient and we’ll get our ramens ASAP.

Hokkaido Baked Cheese Tart QV Centre, Melbourne CBD

Hokkaido Baked cheese tarts have now arrived in Melbourne for quite a while now and yes, they’re a dessert except it’s a touch on the savoury side. The one at QV didn’t have a line so I went inside and got a few for everyone. At $3.90 a tart, it is a bit on the expensive side but that’s what you’d expect from a specialty store opening up in Melbourne. When you step inside, you can definitely smell the baked goodness and it smelt divine. A bite into these babies and you can taste the cheesiness and it just oozes right out. I’d prefer it to be a bit more fluffy but hey, that’s just what I’m into.

Roti Road, Maribyrnong (Highpoint Shopping Centre)

We were looking for a place to have a quick lunch with the creative couple and since we were at highpoint, we opted for some Malaysian food – Roti Road. Roti Road is located on the lower level food court right next to Strike. There’s plenty of seats so you don’t have to run around like a headless chook. We bagged a table and flipped through the menu and started our lunch date.

Thuan Phat, St Albans

St Albans, my local eats and the go-to place when I’m craving for something mum can’t make and my wallet is crying and waiting for payday. My usual eatery was Quang Vinh but that’s gone downhill so Miss Pandan suggested Thuan Phat and it’s always chock-a-block with locals which is always a good sign. Luckily for us, we got there at 6PM on a weeknight and there were plenty of tables to spare.

Top Bun, Croydon

Mr D has been home alone lately and we needed to go do his weekly groceries. Of course we were hungry (when are we not?) and lucky for us, there was a burger joint right next to coles (coinkidink? I think not!). Top Bun, with a name like this, we must determine how top these buns were.
