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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
