Day 1: Four Course Lunch @ Quay

Highly recommend Quay if you’re looking somewhere fancy with good food and service to dine. The restaurant is situated along the river facing the Sydney Opera House – I would imagine it would be quite romantic for dinner.

Musical Inspired Melbourne Trip: Food

Last of Musical Inspired Melbourne Trip from last weekend – Of course it’s going to be about food!

From Nov 2014, I decided I must try the Hopetoun Tea Rooms which I missed out last time with the massive line up. This time I did a Cake away – Raspberry & Apple Crumble and Passionfruit Meringue tart pls! On the same day (Friday) I revisited now my absolute favourite macaroon shop @Le Belle Miete , Hardware Lane as well as KoKo Black.

IMG_6529 IMG_6532IMG_6538

Cold Summer Morning in Melbourne on Saturday, got my scarf, boot and coat on – ready to take my 1hr 30mins walk to Saint Kilda for Breakfast with Marta!

IMG_6563

Have to say Lunar Park is pretty scary looking when it’s closed~~~

IMG_6570

Had a delicious savory breakfast and hot coffee then off we went for dessert already

IMG_6576IMG_6574 IMG_6583IMG_6580IMG_6581

We had vanilla slice and Strawberry tart – all freshly baked everyday and throughout the day, YummoIMG_6582

To burn off those calories I walked back to the City….then I ate crepes with homemade caramel …..IMG_6540

Rainy Sunday morning went to ST. ALI for Breakfast with Mich Ael! Coffee Recommend!

IMG_6606IMG_6602 IMG_6603IMG_6604IMG_6548

Last day of Melbourne went to Hardware Societe for breakfast and had their special of the day, Fresh mango, cocnut French toast and a cup of latte.  Then, to Chapel Street for Burch and Purchese Melbourne Tennis inspired dessert.

Lucky Sunday: National Brownie Day: Dello Mano

Lucky day! I was procrastinating from uni work today…. so I decided to go for a walk to Dello Mano @ Newstead since everyone was raving about their brownies. And yes they were indeed delicious! On top of that it was National Brownie Day and they were giving away 16 piece box of Dello Mano brownies by lucky draw. Of course I put my name down for the draw and won delicious brownies from Dello Mano!

2014-12-07-15-28-30_deco2014-12-07-15-27-40_deco

I not only, not have to do work but on top got to enjoy all these delicious brownies. The atmosphere of the café was very chilling perfect for a Sunday arvo wind-down and staff were very lovely.

Heated G20 Long Weekend

14th – 16th November G20 Meeting, a public holiday for those work within the Brisbane district. So long weekend for me! The weather in Brisbane has been crazy hot…..and so the beach and pool it is 😉

Friday – Burleigh Head at the Gold Coast with Jamie and Roger

IMG_3742 IMG_3744IMG_3747IMG_3745

Saturday – Something Healthy

Riverside running and granola muesli yogurt breakfast @ Riverbar Kitchen  with Tiffany

Sunday – Pool Time and Chester Street Brunch

IMG-20141116-WA0006

Chester Street Bakery and Bar, Chester Street Newstead with Rhiannon, Fenny and Marie Anne

Another reason to go there is to check out their donuts – listed as one of the best donuts in Brisbane by Urban List .

Great interior!

IMG_3767IMG_3754

Highly recommend Avocado Toast with Fetta for savoury breakfast- Delicious!

   IMG_3761

If sweet breakfast is preferred – white chocolate honeycomb, mascarpone hot cake would be my pick

IMG_3762   IMG_3768

Rhiannon got a jam donut and it wasn’t too sweet. The jam was real… like you could see bits of strawberries in it. Moreover, the dough wasn’t too sweet either and the outside wasn’t covered with sugar excessively. So you didn’t feel gross after eating it:) xxo

Eating Melbourne

Buffet Breakfast at Intercontinental on Collins Street –  Beautiful and classy interior with great customer service even when we went in with a discounted Groupon voucher (Food shown in picture are only a small part of what we had).

IMG_3497IMG_35002014-11-03-09-28-42_deco

The Hardware Société on Hardware Street. One of the popular must eat place for breakfast, especially their baked eggs, coffee and hot chocolate. On weekends there’s usually packed with people and long line ups.

Little Cupcake at Degraves Street

IMG_3451IMG_3450

Hopetoun Tea Room, Collins Street within Block Arcade. The arcade represents the late 19th century charm and beauty and, within it is the ever Hopetoun Tea Room with their gorgeous and delicate sweetness. *always a line up (yet to try it)

IMG_3456

KoKo Black, Royal Arcade CBD. Yummmmmmy chocolates and desserts – highly recommend their salted caramel chocolate.

Lygon Street for Italian Food! Bravo!

Cupcake Central, Melbourne Central – Best red velvet cupcakes ever, must try. There’s also other very exciting flavours which I will have to try next time.

IMG_3478IMG_3477

Le Belle Miette, Hardware Lane. The best macaroon I have had yet. I used to think Ladurée macaroons are the best but now it would have to be L Belle Miette.

Other Macaroons I have tried during my stay in Melbourne but still Le Belle Miette is still the favourite

Breakfast at Southern Cross DFO, despite what the outlet shopping centre look like. The restaurant inside was very nice and had a great atmosphere with a man playing piano while we had a breakfast.
