I’m a huge fan of anything french so when I heard that reknown celebrity chef Gontran Cherrier is opening up a boulangerie in Melbourne, boy was I super duper over the moon excited. What’s even better was that he was here to also promote his new opening (27th worldwide) right here in Melbourne.
After a fun night out at escape room (we got out of course with 4 mins to spare) one of the dude’s missus couldn’t be contacted, so we decided to go for some asian desserts. We walked through Chinatown and ended up at Sweetie and Moustache dessert lounge and bar.
After a day full of dress shopping, a cake cafe caught our eye – Ministry of cakes. So what else do the three stooges do? We enter and stuff our faces with cakes of course! We stepped inside and was surrounded by a beautiful smell of baked goodies. There were wedding cakes and novelty cakes on display and so we sat our tooshies down and looked over the menu.
We were waiting around in the area and decided to grab a drinkie since we had an hour to kill. We drove into a strip of shops and finally, hidden away was a fine chocolate shop – Hahndorf’s Fine Chocolate. You can guess where I made Mr D go in for coffee!
After having brunch at Zaatar, the K sisters took us on a Lebanese adventure for some desserts (YAYERS!). When you step inside, there’s a ticket thingy (how technical is that word YO?!) where you need to get a ticket to get served (SO FANCY!).
Miss Train and I decided that we needed a sugar hit and was banking on Matcha Mylkbar but since it was super full (it was a one hour wait? OH EM GEE!!), we decided to walk around St Kilda and see where we could drop by. Eventually we got tired of walking and ended up at Veludo (it was also in the Entertainment Book, SCORE!). So we plopped out tooshies down and looked over the menu.
I was at Eastland Shopping Centre again and since it was brunch time and I was getting peckish. I’ve always walked past Brioche (located in the town square) and was always too full to get something. On this occasion, my tummy was empty and ready for whatever Brioche has in store for me.
If you haven’t heard, there’s a new South Korean ice-creamery in town and it’s here to stay until 31st May 2016 and it’s conveniently located right opposite H&M and it’s called Milkcow. I went on a double date with the creative couple and snagged a table at Milkcow (although, be warned, since it’s a pop up store, it’s quite cosy inside).
Every single time I’ve been to 1000 steps in Mount Dandenong, I always wanted to try the scones at Miss Marple’s Tearoom but it was always full (and I mean chock a block). This time around, Mr D and I arrived at 11am on the dot (when they first open) and snagged a table for 2. We were finally in Miss Marple’s (hurray!!).
After brunch, the girlies and I decided that we needed a sugar hit and since we were in South Melbourne, why not hit up Bibelot?! So off we went on another dessert adventure.It was super busy inside but luckily we managed to get a table for 5. Since we were all full (pants bursting at the seams) we got 4 cakes to share and two scoops of ice-cream (yeah, girls have a dessert tummy FYI). Each cake was $9.50 and they all looked absolutely divine!
