My old work lunch gang wanted to do an outing and of course our outing involves FOOD! Mr Tequila chose Aussie Steak n Burger in Docklands since we had the Entertainment Book discount as well. Located near the pier, there were plenty of parking on the street on a weeknight after 6PM and of course it was FREE! We made a booking and when we got there, we were greeted by the friendly staff. We took our seats and began to look over the menu while our grumbling tummies sang to each other.
Hung Phat use to be called Ha Long and is also now under new management. This is the gang’s usual spot for when we wanted to catch up over cheap food and welcome to stay as long as we like. However, this wasn’t the case when we went here on a saturday night. It was only 8PM and it was empty, hardly any customers and we got a table for 5 immediately. I ordered wonton soup with egg noodles (LOVE THEM WONTONS) and it was a bit below average.
I came here with a friend for dinner since she was craving Korean. We were in the area since we were seeing 112 (YEAH BOIIII!) and needed to stay close to the venue. I made a reservation on a Sunday night but we were a tad late but I called ahead to let them know (politeness FTW).
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!
Catch up with the girlies and this time we decided on Jinda Thai since one of the girls wanted to give it a go. We had to book it one week in advance on for a Wednesday night at 7PM. I turned up and it was of course raining (gees, thanks winter Melbourne) and Miss Panda and I rushed in while waiting for Miss Train (a story from Malaysia!).
I told Mr D I’ll come here with him but I was already in the city with my uni gang and decided to go in ninja mode and hopefully Mr D won’t know (I hope you’re not reading this hohoho). We stood awkwardly at the front of the shop and tried to look at the menu from afar (yeah, we’re cool like that) and was like Chill Bro to each other.
