Milk tea. The increasingly popular drink that everyone is very familiar with. I’m quite familiar with Cha Cha in Springvale as they catered for a friend’s wedding (yes! You can defs get milk tea at your wedding you milk tea lovers!). So when the cravings hit, Ms Chanel suggested Cha Cha and we couldn’t resist. I got the messy black sugar pearl and it definitely hit the spot. Not overly sweet with the right amount of sugar with those soft chewy pearls. Loving the service, loving the drink and basically loving everything.
Ms Curly Fries kept going on and on about Daniel’s Donuts which were opened 24 hours and always have a massive queue no matter what time of the day or night you go. So when an opportunity to eat at Springvale came around, she quickly took us to Daniel’s Donuts. It’s located right next to Coles so you can even do your grocery shopping prior (I have no idea how that was relevant…anywho…). We got there at 9PM on a Monday night and damn, there was a massive line. The good thing is that the line goes really quick so you better know what you’re ordering.
Mr Italian Stallion was leaving for Singapore for two years which meant obligatory burgers were to be eaten before he leaves. On a Monday night we were meant to be at Cultural Commons in Springvale, unfortunately, they were closed so Ms Curly Fries suggested Double D which was 500 m away and across Springvale Station (YAY for convenience to public transport!). We stumbled in and it wasn’t as busy as we thought and checked out the menu which wasn’t as long as I thought it would be.
I was in good ol’ springy to get my hat for my traditional dress and and I was getting a touch hungry and on the verge of hangry. Mr D quickly eyed Hoa Tran and rushed me in and promptly sat me down and started ordering from the menu. Smart kid. Anywho, Hoa Tran is in the alley way and it was super busy when we got there but we were able to snag a table. When you walk in, it’s like every other Vietnamese eatery, signal to the staff how many people were dining, sit down and look over the menu. Mr D got the usual Vietnamese ice coffee and this was quite good. It was very bitter with a touch of sweetness and you could really taste the caffeine which is the way he liked it.
Mr D decided to take me down to Springvale to show me his fav pho joint, he just called it the chicken and cow place since they use to have the animals in the signs. Now they changed it to just the writing in Vietnamese (bonus points for me being able to read it!)
