Since I’ve started work at Dandenong South I’ve been hearing about Arco for a nice place to check out for lunch / dinner. So you can imagine my excitement when we were going to have a work lunch there! Inside it was pretty fancyyyy for an industrial area in the ‘burbs and the staff were super duper friendly. So we all rattled our order to the staff and waited for the food.
Now, I’m all for food coming out together BUT a 40 minute wait for our food to come out when it wasn’t super busy was unacceptable. I tried to brush that aside and tried to enjoy my calamari salad. Unfortunately, it was super salty and quite oily and I was quite disappointed. The salad? It was just rocket and cabbage.
After a hard day at work, we needed to stop for lunch and when we passed a seafood place in Rosebud, we just had to stop by. Walking in we were greeted by friendly staff and had their attention the whole time. It wasn’t super busy on a Thursday but that just means we’ll get our food way quicker!
It’s mumsy and daddy bear’s 30th anniversary so we decided to surprise them by taking the to Iki Jime, an all seafood joint by Shannon Bennett and the Vue group. So in we went and boy oh boy was the service great! The staff greeted us warmly and we got the chef’s table which sits directly to the side of the kitchen which was a touch disappointing since we thought we’ll be at the front. But the little area is secluded and it was like having our own party. So, with this table, we only had the option of the set menu and at the price of $110 per head, it was a pretty good price.
Since it was our last day in Tassie, we decided that we gotta have a scallop pie and saw that there was a bakery in Richmond so of course we made a bee line towards there. It was pumping with people and there were heaps of seating indoors and outdoors. So you basically go up to the counter to order your food and bring it back to your seat. Doesn’t seem so hard does it? So that was what we did.
Yering Station is known for its view, winery and food so of course we had a girlies’ date there. We made a reservation 2 weeks in advance and there is ample of parking so you don’t have to worry about that. Our initial impression was WOW with the friendly front staff and how delish it smelt inside.
