We’ve been to White Mojo in Balwyn and know what kind of quality brunch they served up so Mr D was super duper excited to head to White Mojo Plus+ located in Glen Waverly for lunch with the girlies (yep! The girlies)! On a weekday for lunch, it wasn’t too busy (guess it gets super busy on the weekends though) so it was real easy to get a table. The grilled chicken was very generous sizing and it was super duper filling (score for those who’s always worried about not getting full!). It was super duper tasty and oh so delish!
One of my friend’s were getting married and she wanted to celebrate by having a lovely dinner at Rice Queen. Rice Queen was also a bar and it was vibrant and loud! Yes, it was so loud that I could hardly hear the person next to me. Anywho, we sat down and we were all going to have the Banquet C which costs $44 per person. Since there was just so many food and it was a touch dark so excuse the poor quality of the photos.
The steam pork and prawn dumplings were flavoursome but the skin was a touch on the tough side and was a touch dry.
I haven’t seen Mr Slowpoke in a while so it meant, catch up time. We decided to go somewhere local and he suggested Red Beetle Cafe in Caroline Springs (it wasn’t THAT local). It wasn’t too busy when we got there which is always a plus in my books and we sat our tooshies down.
The meat and wine co is known for their well, meats and wines and have multiple locations throughout Victoria and New South Wales, they are still going strong. So when I heard that they’re opening one in South Yarra, it wasn’t a surprise since South Yarra was pumping with eateries and shops already and it would be a great addition to the area. The Meat & Wine Co is located in the Como Centre and there were two entrances, one on the outside and on the inside.
I was in charge of organising dinner for work and lucky me, I got to pick the place. After hours of running around, a work colleague suggested Hellenic Republic (it was closer to his house) and I realised that this place has been on my to go list since FOREVER! Why does this name ring a bell you say? That’s because it’s one of George Calombaris’ (yep, that guy from masterchef) restaurant. Luckily, I was able to make a reservation for 18 people on a Saturday night at one weeks notice. Anywho, there was a 2 hours time limit but that didn’t deter me at all.
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.
It was our last breakfast in London and Mr D knew the drill, we only eat whatever food is known in the country which we’re in. So off we go on our last breakfast adventure and we stopped at Tanner and Co. Since it was only 8AM it wasn’t super busy and we got a table straight away.
