* Quickie with iPhone
Breakfast : Hardware Sociètè @ Hardware St.
Lighting was bad because I wanted to sit right next to the heater. Even the picture of me looked rather strange! Food was pretty good. We had scrambled eggs with chorizo from the breakfast menu and I managed to sample Pick Yin’s pork belly from the lunch menu.
Conclusion : Go for the lunch menu. Priced at the same price tag as the brekkie for all the items, lunch is value for money. But of course, if brekkie is what you’re looking for, by all means, go for it. I’m especially intrigued by their Deconstructed Cheesecake with Berries on brioche. It looked pretty and yummy!
Queen Victoria Market.
To be honest, we didn’t do much here. I was there merely for old time’s sake. We managed to buy piping hot donut from the donut van though. The boy thought it was ‘cute’. Heh. I almost gotten myself a dozen of freshly shucker oysters if not for the boy who gave me his horror stare. ‘What?? Oysters at 1pm, mama?!?!’. FINE.
From QVM, we walked all the way to Smith St. Yup, you read right. QVM to Smith St. I mean, why not? I’m not going anywhere in hurry and the weather was most pleasant. Along the way, there was much to see eg, the breathtaking St Patrick’s Church. So yeah, walking is the way to go for us though the boy opposed the idea totally. Lol!
Lunch : Huxtaburger @ 116, Smith St.
Let’s just put it this way. It was so good that I ordered a second, a mini one that is. Together with the chipotle chips recommended by lovely Anh, lunch was fab!!
From Smith St, we walked all the way to Crown, passing by Fitzroy Garden to take a couple of pics of Melbourne’s famous icon – Cook’s Cottage.
Before calling a day, all that were needed was merely 15 minutes whilst walking to the tram stop for another (or two) accidental buy. Aiyo! :p But like I told Keropokman, they were ‘needs’, not ‘wants’. Haha!
Because we were so pooped, dinner was a simple affair which we both love to bits. Heh!
Junking away, together with the cheeses from De Bortoli Winery.
