The baby triplets have been wanting to go on a date with Mr D and myself and finally we were all free for it (YAYERS!). The girlies of course adored Korean food and I wanted to check out Mahn Doo since we’ve always parked next to it and have never gone inside. So this time, we’re heading into Mahn Doo.
The newest bad boys in town – Little Oscar and they’re doing korean influenced american burgers (what??!!) and have been opened for 2 months (still babies!) in Brunswick. We were greeted very warmly by the staff and was shown to our table. They had a lot going on with ropes being part of the decor which I thought was pretty cool. They also have a live DJ and music so you know this place will be pumping!
My workmate has been going on and on about Gurkhas and when Groupon had a deal, he made sure I got it. I got the banquet for 4 for $50 (usually for the simple feast, it was $24.50 per head) and made a booking for a Saturday night since we were in the partying mood.
Before we head out to Trapt for some escapism, we needed to refuel and decided to stop by Supernormal. I’ve been hanging to come here since I’ve been to Cumulus Inc and Cutler & Co and wanted to try out the last baby of the pack.
I was in charge of work lunchies and we all (well me actually) decided to go to Station Hotel for some good ol’ steaks since it was the local joint. We made a booking (make sure you do too because it get super duper busy) and asked for the mains to be done by the time we got there because we were a bit strapped on time. We walked in and oh dear lord it was a full house. The food came out immediately and they got all the orders except for 1 correct which is quite impressive nonetheless.
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!).
My grandparents were in town and daddy bear wanted to take them to try out Ribs & Burgers (yes, he is more hip than I am) so we had a whole fam bam outing and made our way to the Northcote one at Northcote Plazza. Baby A suggested to make a booking since he said the eatery was quite small so I called up and they don’t take reservations (WHAT??? Why?? I don’t want to waittttt) and said there are usually seats free around 7:30PM so in we went.
Mi Corazon was a tequila bar in Brunswick east, when you stepped in you were transported to Mexico. I was invited by Zomato to attend the tequila and mezcal masterclass and all opinions expressed are my own. We were greeted warmly by the owner, Kyle who prepared us all a tequila concoction with blood orange juice and it was YUMMILICOUS (totes wanted more!).
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.
