The legendary Lune Croissanterie. Croissant lovers all know about this cult eatery and all the lining up you have to do in the original Fitzroy store and since I’m not really a morning person, I’ve never done it. So when they opened up a store on Collins Street, it means I can definitely check it out. So when I had a free weekday, I took mumsy and daddy bear into the city to check out Lune.
If you love museums and steaks, the have I got a place for you. Natural History Bar & Grill, located on Collins Street serves heaps of dishes from the grill with an extensive and impressive bar. However, be ready for stuffed animals looking at you through the glass windows because yep, it’s like you’re at the Natural History Museum (well I’d assume so since I haven’t been yet but watching movies I’d say that’s pretty spot on!). Anywho, the atmosphere is very casual with very friendly staff so no need for any fancy pants here!
Vapiano, an Italian chain that’s all over Australia that serves up pasta and pizza has released a new winter menu which includes PUMPKIN SOUP! Who doesn’t love pumpkin soup! I digress, Vapiano is located in Flinders Lane and there are parking on the street but it’s not a lot and it is quite exy so be prepared to park a touch further and walk there. But don’t let that deter you because the staff and service here are top notch!
Mr D decided to surprise me for my birthday dinner and since I LOVE LOVE LOOOOOVE french food, he took me to The French Brassarie (Yayers!!!), a hidden gem tucked away in Melbourne.
Baby A wanted to do an outing and take mumsy and daddy bear for some dumplings and pop their ‘xiao long bao’ cherry, so where to take them then Din Tai Fung in the Emporium.
Wondering around the city for dinnner with Mr 3 cents and Miss Curly Fries we eventually made it to Mama’s Buoi with Miss Curly Fries recommendation.
Mr Italian Stallion suggested a catch up at Chin Chin and who am I to refuse him a delish meal. We turned up ASAP since we knew you’d have to wait a gazillion years before getting a table since Chin Chin only does walk in. Luckily, we got a table within 10 minutes (SCORE!).
It was that time of the day again, dinner time and after walking around which felt like FOREVER, we decided to enter Ramen Ya on Bourke Street. We were basically the only customers since it was 6PM (senior citizen time). It was very spacious and located right next to the food court which they tried to cover with the huge banner.
We were at the cheese festival at the Prahan market and I needed a sugar hit so we walked willingly (well I forced Mr D…) to Burch and Purchese since I haven’t been yet.
Mr D was a touch peckish and needed something to eat. I suggested the souva at Jimmy Grants and he said it was GINORMOUS and decided to go for the kiddies one instead (KIDS??? WHAT??!!).
