I have heard so many good things about this cheeseburger dumplings at drumplings so of course I had to go and try it. We visited on a Tuesday at 5pm (yep, we’re like old grannies that loves to eat early) and there’s already quite a few tables that were reserved. Luckily for us, we were there early so we snagged a table. The staff were friendly and welcoming once walking in and boy was it hot in there. It reminded us of being on a tropical island and the interior just makes me feel oh so happy.
We were in Noosa Heads having a fam bam adventure and we were all getting hungry. Since we all came up to visit Baby A, he had the honours of picking our lunch spot. After walking up and down the strip of festivities, he laid his eyes on Betty’s Burgers. So we rushed in and was seated quite quickly.
It’s almost Christmas time and everyone is trying to get together before the holidays and it was time to catch up with Miss Train and Miss Panda to exchange our KK presents (YAYERS!). Miss Train booked us in for Oriental Spoon (the first one) across from Melbourne Central since we were all taking the train home.
Time for a catch up with the creative couple and Mr D decided to have ramen and thus Fukuryu Ramen here we come. It is located in a lane in Chinatown but they have a big enough sign for you to not miss it.
Caught up with Mr Burberry for dinner at Dumplings Plus at Highpoint since we couldn’t figure out where to go. It was cheap, quick and the wait staff were friendly enough. We got a table for two and got ourselves so much food!! First up, steamed Shanghai Pork Dumplings (or as we all know…XIAO LONG BAOOOOO!!!). They were GINORMOUS!! It was juicy and quenched my xiao long bao thirst!
I finally got to come here for lunch and of course was expecting a huge queue (as you do in Melbourne these days…sigh) and of course there was. We put our name down and 20 minutes later we got a table (had to share the huge table but who cares, we’re in!).
I got the baked eggs Duex which comes with chorizo, potato, piquillo peppers, queso mahon, toasted almonds, creamy aioli and EGGS!!! This was amazing! Such a winter warmer and careful, because the pot is HOT(don’t burn yourself like I did). Must get dish! Sure it’s filling but isn’t that why you came here? To get full!!
We had a double date for lunch and I was responsible for finding a venue. Took a random stab and chose Cobb Lane in Yarraville since I love the smell of fresh bread in bakeries. They don’t take bookings so we decided to turn up at noon (should have thought this through more carefully) but luckily we got a table just as we arrived. The place is very small and cosy and as you step in you just smell the bread (mmmm bread).
