South Yarra, the place where you go to shop, eat, drink and just wander around. Located smack bang in the heart of South Yarra lies a modern yet authentic Italian eatery that isn’t flash or in yo face. Italian Chef has been opened for approximately 3 years and it gets quite full so you’ll definitely need to make a booking if you want to try out this Italian eatery. We were welcomed in by the staff and was seated in the middle of the eatery. We got the drinkie which was quite popular and included negronii in a spritz and it was fresh and not too alcoholic tasting if you were not a fan of the good ol’ alcohol taste.
After a fun night out at escape room (we got out of course with 4 mins to spare) one of the dude’s missus couldn’t be contacted, so we decided to go for some asian desserts. We walked through Chinatown and ended up at Sweetie and Moustache dessert lounge and bar.
For our last night in Venice Mr D and I walked around the streets to find a super cute place for dinner. Mr D didn’t want to go since I forgot the map (oopsie daisies) and we landed at Ristorante Da Sabrina.
Miss Tour Guide and her hubby decided to take us out for some FRENCH food because you guessed it, we were in FRANCE! They took us to la tete a toto and the setting is a classroom in a school where the tables and chairs they used were what was used in a school (nerd alert!). It was super adorable as!!
I convinced my friend Ms 3G to have dinner at DOC so I can pop my DOC cherry. Since there’s no booking for tables under 7, we decided to do a walk in at 6PM on a cold wintery Wednesday Night. I got there a tad late due to the yucky parking but Ms 3G got there at 6PM and she said it wasn’t super full at all. I rushed in to get away from the cold, I was hit in the face with warmth and Italian wait staff (felt like I was in Italy….kinda!). As we were deciding what to get from the menu, all I could smell was the pizza base, cheese and every italian goodness. GOD I was soooo HUNGRY!!!
After having dinner and desserts already, we decided to go for a walk down Lygon Street for coffee and maybe desserts again (maybe? it was most definitely). We stopped at Copperwood and was seated outside and got served immediately. However, it was 9pm in winter and when we saw an opportunity open up indoors, we rushed inside ninja style (not so ninja when everyone can see us though…). We got the dessert menus and took a look at the cake/dessert cabinet an our eyes lit up like little kids in a candy store. SO MANY DESSERTS and they all look soooooooo good! We all got coffees and it wasn’t too bad either (yay lygon street) and then the dessert came out (Woohoo!).
