There was a new Malaysian Laksa eatery which has just opened on Elizabeth street and Miss Travel decided to check it out and so I tagged along. Since it was the opening night, it was super duper packed and luckily we came early so we were able to get a table. The staff gives you a menu at the table and you just order up front when you’re ready. I got the iced teh tarik and I love this, its just pulled milk tea. Miss Travel got the soya bean and she too, enjoyed her drinkie.
Mr D had a lunch wedding and since I was his plus 1, I got to go too (woohoo!). After a day of eating and drinking in the city, we decided that we needed to refuel and dun dun dun….dumplings were on the agenda. The renown dumplings in Melbourne were at HuTong Dumpling Bar and so off we went inside to fulfill our dumplings desire.
After dinner, we decided to have dessert at Entrecote because, well, I ADORE FRENCH food! Since it was also in the Entertainment book, well, how can the stooges and I refuse a discounted french dessert! BAM! We walked from Burma Lane and right into Entrecote.
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.
The cheapest Michelin Starred restaurant has finally opened in Melbourne which means, date time with the Traveling couple at Tim Ho Wan is on the agenda. The Traveling couple got there at 5:15PM and had to wait till we arrived at 5:45PM (naughty!! We were super late!) and got in 5 minutes later. Tip of the day – go when it’s not lunch or dinner time and you’ll get a seat straight away. We got in and looked over the menu which was also a place mat and there’s a bell on the table so you can get their attention straight away. So, let’s get the food on the way! First up, chicken feet! I didn’t really enjoy these. It was quite hard and didn’t have a lot of flavour either which was a shame.
Whilst in Croydon hanging out, I was getting a bit peckish so we wandered around until I laid my eyes on a burger joint – The Local Burger Co. Mr D could not refuse a burger eatery so we marched our way in. It’s really cosy inside and if it’s full, there’s always outdoor seating too.
The Melbourne International Comedy Festival is in full swing and the work gang and I dropped by and had a few (more like a plethora) of giggles and of course need to refuel ourselves. Mr and Mrs Tequila really wanted to have Vietnamese so we stopped at Pho Dzung on Miss Mousey’s recommendation.
Pablo Honey is the new South American inspired bad boys in town located in the heart of St Kilda, conveniently located in front of the tram stop, opposite lunar park and 5 minutes walk from the beach (I told you it was in the heart!). They’ve only been open for 4 months and already, the place is buzzing with excitement.
One of my work mate has never tried korean BBQ and we decided to all take him (road trip…not really!). Miss Mousey chose the place and it was all the way in Carnegie – Korean BBQ. She made a booking and in we went.
