It’s Mr D’s birthday which means, we get to go and fill up our tummies!! This year was the year that Mr D finally decided that he was going to have steak so I decided to try out Rockpool in Crown Casino, thus made a booking. On the night, we skipped our way into the restaurant.
Thanks to the trusty stooges, Mr D and I got to have a lovely date day at Eureka 89 which is located in the Eureka tower. We both dressed up and made our way there. There was a red carpet and everything (unfortunately I took the photo when we left so they packed it away). So inside we skipped in.
Miss Spam’s birthday was approaching and how else do you celebrate your birthday, find a nice place for DINNER! She picked an Italian restaurant in Little Collins street – Il Bacaro. We got the 6PM session since it was booked out. Mr D, Mr Burberry and myself got there at the same time and Miss Spam and Miss Mori were already there. The interior was quite dark and the lights were so dim (turn up the lighting please guys!) and it had a lovely ambiance. We seated ourselves and the waiter handed us the menus to take a looksie. After skimming through, the waiter came back to take our order. There was olive oil on each table and look how cutie patootie it is!
Catching up with the gang meant we could go wherever we please. Mr Burberry strongly suggested Shane Delia’s middle eastern one hatted restaurant – Maha. So of course I made the reservations for a Saturday night to indulge in good food. Maha is tucked away in an alley way and you wouldn’t even know it’s there unless you’re looking for it.
It was Mr D’s birthday and I booked Lake house for his second lunch (wooohoooo lunchhhh) because I’ve been hanging to come here (2 chefs hat!). We arrived and entered through reception and was greeted warmly. We were shown to our table, I of course went and sat on the cushiony bench surrounded by cushions (Mr D was lucky I didn’t just cocoon myself with cushions). We (really it means I) decided to get the Autumn/Early Winter 2015 Tasting Menu for $145 (why pick two dishes when you can have EIGHT!!!) and waited for our food to arrive.
