The stooges caught up again and this time we wanted to do vegetarian and since we all loved Indian food, someone recommended Saravanaa Bhavan which is a vegetarian chain from India with many chains opened around the world. I got there first and sat down and waited for the other two stooges to turn up.
Eastland has been opening a lot of eateries and there are just so many choices. Being hungry meant I needed to eat and quickly. We saw Ajisen Ramen and this is a chain that whips up ramen quickly. In we went and got a table quickly.
Hokkaido Baked cheese tarts have now arrived in Melbourne for quite a while now and yes, they’re a dessert except it’s a touch on the savoury side. The one at QV didn’t have a line so I went inside and got a few for everyone. At $3.90 a tart, it is a bit on the expensive side but that’s what you’d expect from a specialty store opening up in Melbourne. When you step inside, you can definitely smell the baked goodness and it smelt divine. A bite into these babies and you can taste the cheesiness and it just oozes right out. I’d prefer it to be a bit more fluffy but hey, that’s just what I’m into.
Vietnamese breadrolls A.K.A Banh mi is the bomb and I absolutely adore them. Whenever I’m in St Albans, Footscray or Springvale, that’s my go to snack/lunch depending on what time of day it is. What I look for is the crunchiness of the bread on the outside and on the inside has to be warm and fluffy like clouds. The meats, well the meats have to be full of flavour and yes, it needs to be a generous amount as well. So, walking through Springvale and stopped at Springvale Bread & Cake 2.
Mrs Creative had a trial for a job and suggested NeNe chicken for some fried fingerlickin’ chicken for dinner. NeNe chicken is located in the new food court on Level 1 at Highpoint and has been opened for quite a while now. It was a touch busy and we were baffled with the choice. We decided to get the regular original pieces because hey, who could beat original anything. It came with complimentary coleslaw and radish.
The signature blue sea salt flavoured soft serve, Aqua S has finally extended its wings and have landed in Melbourne. So I wanted (actually needed) to try it and convinced Mr Angry Asian to go after our work dinner. There was only 30 minutes before closing time so we ran as fast as our little legs could take us and BAM we were in front of Aqua S.
It was time to see Baby A so Daddy bear and I were at the airport waiting to board our flight. It was almost lunch time so we definitely had to get something to eat and Daddy bear suggested kebab. There was only the one place we saw and so we headed over to Ali Baba in the food court.
