The City Thing

What a massive week in Melbourne we have had. We arrived safely back at the farm and all we can say is we had a fantastic mini-break in the big smoke. Our time in Melbourne made me realise that as much as I love visiting the city and soaking up all that it has to offer I don’t think I could live there anymore. It’s too busy, too hectic and too crazy. I felt I was being pushed and pulled in every direction. With that being said we had a ball. It was a foodie’s dream adventure and we travelled around the culinary world in only one short week; from Greek to Thai to Japenese to Middle Eastern to Chinese to Pub Fare and all restaurants were top-notch.

Here are the restaurants we tried and tested:

Chinese: Supper Inn – in China Town

Good quality Chinese, quick service and reasonable pricing.

Greek: Tsindos Restaurant – on Lonsdale St

Home

Cute atmosphere, reasonably priced, delicious food, fantastic Greek wine.

Greek: Stalactites – on Lonsdale St

Quickly seated, service average, food delicious, large serving sizes, food was delightful.

Japenese: Don Dons – on Swanston St

Cheap food, quick service, busy, food slightly above average.

Middle Eastern: Mecca Bah – Docklands

Food was fantastic, servings on the small side, service was slack, atmosphere and view brilliant 

Thai/Vietnamese: Your Thai – on Swanston St

Highly efficient service, cheap eats, large serving sizes, wide variety of dishes to choose from

Pub Fare: Bendigo across from Central City Caravan Park

A bit on the expensive side for a pub meal, large meal portions, modern design in dining room, mouth-watering meals, cake for dessert was dried out. 

Other bits and bobs

Koko Black – Decadant Cinnamon Belgium Hot Chocolate

Brunetti’s – Delicious Macaroons

Little Cupcake Shop – Sweet little Red Velvet Cupcakes – Yummy!

The important reason for our Melbourne Trip was to head to the Camping Show and purchase our new camper which we successfully completed. The other reason I made the journey was to catch up with my much-loved friend Leanne. It was nice to have a girly weekend with her including venture to Loreal Fashion Week. We both had a fantastic time. After Leanne flew home Shaun and I picked up our camper and waved the city bye-bye. It will be a while before we head to the city again as after Easter we are heading West for several months and who knows where the road will lead.

Here is a few photographs of our time in Melbourne:
