I was in good ol’ springy to get my hat for my traditional dress and and I was getting a touch hungry and on the verge of hangry. Mr D quickly eyed Hoa Tran and rushed me in and promptly sat me down and started ordering from the menu. Smart kid. Anywho, Hoa Tran is in the alley way and it was super busy when we got there but we were able to snag a table. When you walk in, it’s like every other Vietnamese eatery, signal to the staff how many people were dining, sit down and look over the menu. Mr D got the usual Vietnamese ice coffee and this was quite good. It was very bitter with a touch of sweetness and you could really taste the caffeine which is the way he liked it.
Royal Stacks have had the first store opening at the beginning of 2016 and have been making a name for themselves all over Melbourne and have popped up a few stores along the way. Royal Stacks made their entrance at Chadstone right in the heart of the food court and you’ll know where they are because there’s always a huge queue in front of it. The store has the same feeling and decoration as all the other stores which is always a plus and makes you feel like royalty.
One of the girlies at work is moving across the world and she was having her farewell dinner/drinkies at Two Birds Brewing. It was a wet and windy day in Melbourne and when you step into this brewery, it was cosy, casual and very inviting.
The burger scene in Melbourne has popped up like wild fire and there’s a new bad boy in town that’s been open for quite some time and is serving asian fusion burgers. Welcome to The Burger Block in Kew. Located on the main road, I was quite worried about the parking. Do not fear, there’s plenty of street parking so don’t panic.
Regular Original (5pc) – $10.95
Mrs Creative had a trial for a job and suggested NeNe chicken for some fried fingerlickin’ chicken for dinner. NeNe chicken is located in the new food court on Level 1 at Highpoint and has been opened for quite a while now. It was a touch busy and we were baffled with the choice. We decided to get the regular original pieces because hey, who could beat original anything. It came with complimentary coleslaw and radish.
It was Daddy Bear’s birthday and we decided to have pizzas because it was a treat! There’s a local pizza joint which I absolutely adored and it’s a 2 minute drive – Pierre’s Pizza!
The signature blue sea salt flavoured soft serve, Aqua S has finally extended its wings and have landed in Melbourne. So I wanted (actually needed) to try it and convinced Mr Angry Asian to go after our work dinner. There was only 30 minutes before closing time so we ran as fast as our little legs could take us and BAM we were in front of Aqua S.
It was Mr Hipster’s birthday (well it was the day before) and we decided to have lunch next door at the pub because, well, because pubs are Mr Hipster’s second home. Miss Mousey made a call to West End Market Hotel and pre-ordered our meals so by the time we got there, our food would be ready. Lunchtime came around and we made our way to West End for some pub grub.
It was time to see Baby A so Daddy bear and I were at the airport waiting to board our flight. It was almost lunch time so we definitely had to get something to eat and Daddy bear suggested kebab. There was only the one place we saw and so we headed over to Ali Baba in the food court.
There was a new Malaysian Laksa eatery which has just opened on Elizabeth street and Miss Travel decided to check it out and so I tagged along. Since it was the opening night, it was super duper packed and luckily we came early so we were able to get a table. The staff gives you a menu at the table and you just order up front when you’re ready. I got the iced teh tarik and I love this, its just pulled milk tea. Miss Travel got the soya bean and she too, enjoyed her drinkie.
