Sydney Opera Trip I: Eating Sydney

Sydney Opera Trip I: Eating Sydney – Starter The Opera House! ;P


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.

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!


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


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!

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.

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).


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


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)


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.


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.



Burch and Purchese, Chapel Street – love everything!


Hot Jam Donut, Victoria Market – 5 is just not nough

Something healthy to break down the disaccharides.


  Cupcake family, QV – known for their cake decorations

IMG_3472IMG_3473 IMG_3474

I Love Dumplings on A’Beckett St. Cheap and authentic tasting Chinese – 15 pieces of dumplings for $10!!!!!


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.



Having a coffee and chilling at Federation Square near Flinders Train Station


Degraves Street, Laneway Breakfast. Really enjoyed my laneway breaky experience!
