The last 24 hours haven’t been my finest. The worst possible thing had to occur… I have had to abstain from eating – a tough task for me!
While sickness overcame me yesterday, and I am only easing back into very plain foods today, I am currently dreaming about all the fancy foods from Melbourne eateries that I cannot wait to try.
So until I can actually enjoy these, let us have a look at some mouthwatering foods I have recently enjoyed around the greatest city in the world.
Tall Timber, Prahran. Poached eggs with sautéed kale, asparagus, green beans, almonds + feta on quinoa loaf. Highly recommend.
Hammer & Tong, Fitzroy. Absolutely amazing and light lavendar yoghurt custard with fresh fruit, freeze dried fruit and edible flowers.
The little bit of porridge with mango swirls and coconut foam that I got to try was also amazing (top right)…
On sunny day walking in the CBD a couple of weeks ago I had a lovely lunch. A Pressed Juices Berry glow 2 juice at their store on Howey Place, and a spinach and feta gozleme from Mama’s Gozleme food truck at Fed Square.
The new Top Paddock (equally as amazing) is The Kettle Black in South Melbourne. The blueberry and ricotta hotcake is exactly like Top Paddocks and their coconut yoghurt is to die for!
Grace Cafe, Fitzroy. Quark, quark, quark. I had the quark on toast and a lovely skim chai with drizzles of honey.
The vegetarian laksa (bottom left) from Laksa King in Flemington. Big tofu puffs, noodles, spicy coconut soup and so many veggies. Accompanied with cold fresh coconut water to cool down the spice. So good.
Last year I blogged about a foodie hotspot in South Melbourne, a place that has my favourite breakfast dish: Banoffee French Toast. Well there is a new Banoffee dish in town. The Banoffee Porridge from Lolo & Wren in Brunswick West was so amazing, I keep planning my next visit back there.
The French Toast from Lolo & Wren was apparently nice also…
Pho from the Melbourne Emporium, and a healthy salted caramel shake from Thr1ve.
Gorgeously presented Dr Martys organic crumpets with maple butter, creme fraiche and caramelised walnuts. This dish was enjoyed at Rupert & The Fig in Brighton.
Well my tummy is officially rumbling. I’m off to eat some plain toast. Or maybe I’ll boil a potato. Exciting stuff.
Until next time when I am back enjoying the above foods.
