Time for a catch up with the creative couple and Mr D decided to have ramen and thus Fukuryu Ramen here we come. It is located in a lane in Chinatown but they have a big enough sign for you to not miss it.
I came here with a friend for dinner since she was craving Korean. We were in the area since we were seeing 112 (YEAH BOIIII!) and needed to stay close to the venue. I made a reservation on a Sunday night but we were a tad late but I called ahead to let them know (politeness FTW).
Mr D really wanted me to try the PappaRoti buns in Springvale since this was the first place they opened.
Mr D decided to take me down to Springvale to show me his fav pho joint, he just called it the chicken and cow place since they use to have the animals in the signs. Now they changed it to just the writing in Vietnamese (bonus points for me being able to read it!)
Dinner with the gang again and we (when I said we I mean Mr Burberry) felt like Japanese. He chose Hako for a Saturday dinner and of course Melbourne was pouring down raining. We got inside it was actually quite cosy. It felt really modern and fun inside.
My hotel was opposite to this cafe and I had to have breakfast early and so I ventured into Luxxe (the concierge heard good things and I trusted him!).
What do you do when you’re in Adelaide for work and hear that the first Hello Kitty Cafe in Australia is in Adelaide? Go to the Hello Kitty Cafe alone is what you do! This cafe is located in Chinatown (Yep, I ended up in Chinatown…) and it closes really late. When I turned up, the surrounding shops were closed except for Gong Cha and Hello Kitty. I walked in and it wasn’t as busy as I thought it would be though.
Work trip again (wooohoo!) and I had to find somewhere to dine alone…I walked up and down and found this cute italian bistro called Rigoni’s Bistro and they have won many awards including best informal dining in SA . It looked so cute and welcoming so of course I walked in.
While shopping casually in Westfield I was getting grumpy since I didn’t have any sugar in me, sooooo Mr suggested KOKO BLACK!! I’m more of a sweets person and I know koko black chocolates are a bit more on the darker side but hey, I’m not going to refuse CHOCOLATE!!
We entered the chocolate hub and was greeted by friendly staff and chose to sit in the corner with the cushy chairs (not going to be a sucker and sit on them hard chairs yo!). I decided to get the classic belgian hot chocolate. There were so many different hot chocolate flavours and since I was in a boring mood, I chose the classic one. To be honest, it was okay. Not super sweet, not that thick but it wasn’t bad either.
Dex2rose is the new gelaterie in the CBD, opened for 7 months now and these bad boys are using Nitrogen to make their ice creams and gelato. I was invited by Dex2rose for a tasting menu and all opinions expressed are my own.
Dex2rose is located in an alley way and there is a sign pointing to the location (LOVE SIGNAGES!).
