Chez Olivier is a place which has been on my list and when I finally found an opportunity to go, I seized it and booked it without Mr D knowing (my bad!). Located in South Yarra on the busy road of Toorak road, there’s quite a lot of foot traffic and if you’re driving there’s free side parking if you can nab a spot.
Mr Burberry, of course, was still celebrating his 30th months after he actually turned 30 but we weren’t really complaining. He picked Imbue in Maribrynong since it was local for the girlies and I would be at the parentals that night. It does get quite busy so make sure you make a booking (we missed out last time). There are few parking spots in the carpark but they do get full real quick so your best bet is to park in Aldi’s carpark. Now back to the venue, it’s dim, it’s comfy and it looks a touch fancy. The staff are really friendly and treats every customer that walks in like they’re a long time friend.
Living in Melbourne we’ve been spoilt with brunch choices and Camberwell is no exception. Enter Neighbour is not only a warm and cosy venue but it does get super busy. Walking in we were greeted by friendly staff, sat our butts down and waited for the food to come out.
Working around the South East suburbs, a colleague suggested we hit up MKS
Miss Traveler and Miss Mumma had a local friend in Malaysia and he took us out to dinner. Since we met up with him at 8:30PM, we were very limited to what we could have for dinner. He had a bright idea and lead us to Bangsar (the hip and happening place) for some ‘banana leaf’ dinner and stopped at Sri Nirwana Maju. This eatery was quite busy but luckily for us, we got a table within 5 minutes of arriving.
Mr D had some places bookmarked for my birthday food adventure and the first stop was lunch at Belleville (which I’ve heard good things about). Located in an alley in Chinatown, you can see the signage outside which was super duper bright.
After an adventure at Lollipop’s for Mr D’s birthday bash, we were all in need of some lunchies! We were led to Baowie (such a cutie patootie name) and I was super excited because I LOVE xiao long bao!
Shopping with Mr D in the city and we spotted a new Korean Fried Chicken eatery and of course we had to stop by and check it out!
Whilst shopping at Emporium, I got a bit peckish and walked around the food court and decided to try out Thr1ve. The menu caught my eye with all the healthy and tasty food so I lined up.
The new burger joint on the westside has opened up and it was St. Burgs. I haven’t been so stooge 1 (stooge 2 was out of action being sick) took me here to satisfy our burger cravings. It’s located in an apartment block and we got there at 6:30PM on a Thursday night and it was empty.
