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.
This year I’ve joined forces (may the force be with you) with the Entertainment Book to raise funds for Sane Australia.
The Entertainment book contains various discounts from 2-for-1 offers, 25-50% vouchers for attractions, cafes and restaurants (woohoo!) and other entertainment. There’s one for all the states in Australia and New Zealand so no one will miss out! You can even get the digital version which is handy if you’re a spontaneous person and hate carrying the chunky book around.
Royal Stacks is the newest Shake Shack inspired burger place to open up in Melbourne with the help of Dani Zeini who also opened Grand Trailer Park Taverna, Truck Stop Deluxe, Easey’s and Dandenong Pavilion. I was invited to attend pre-launch of Royal Stacks and all opinions expressed are my own.
My workie lunch group wanted to do an xmas dinner together and I was yet again in charge of suggesting a place and making sure everyone turns up. I suggested dumplings and EVERYONE was all for it. I made a reservation at I love dumplings in Flemington and our night started off from there (tip: make a reservation because it gets SUPER DUPER BUSY!)
It was dinner time with the stooges and we decided to have indian because that’s what we were craving! I didn’t realise that Aangan opened a second eatery in Derrimut and so Stooge 1 booked it for a Sunday night.
Hung Phat use to be called Ha Long and is also now under new management. This is the gang’s usual spot for when we wanted to catch up over cheap food and welcome to stay as long as we like. However, this wasn’t the case when we went here on a saturday night. It was only 8PM and it was empty, hardly any customers and we got a table for 5 immediately. I ordered wonton soup with egg noodles (LOVE THEM WONTONS) and it was a bit below average.
