A bit of a random food post ahead, of us going about Melbourne
Lounging around in the apartment for breakfast of double Brie cheese and crackers, mmmm!
Walking around Springwood, you wouldn’t think we were in Australia!
Soaking in the sun
It’s Wonder Woman mum! hehehe
There were Asian shops, shop-signs, and people everywhere! Chris stuck out like sore thumb 😛
Yum cha lunch at Fu Long Seafood Restaurant, chosen because it was packed with people.
Strangely, there was a very small selection to choose from and it wasn’t that good.
Crazy packed! Typical super-rude Asian restaurant service.
Awww a nice pic 🙂
Prawn dumpings. Nice but not ‘refined’ in texture or taste
Assorted dumplings. I really liked them “ham shui gok” on the top-left
The veggies in oyster sauce were actually really really good!
And of course, Xiao Long Bao – these were nice but nothing amazing
Even more food.. and a dirty table
Lovely sweet bean curd dessert. Yum.
We then drove up to the Dandenong area up in the mountains,
and ate at Pie in the Sky, famous for their pies (well, duh) and Devonshire tea
The interior was cozy and busy with people greedy for pies
3 tiers in this cottage-style cafe
Beef Burgundy – chunky beef cooked in red wine and mushrooms. So hearty :)~
Beef Curry – pie base prepared in the traditional Indian method. First the spices are
cooked to release the flavour and then added to the diced meat and cooked til tender.
Rice and diced tomatoes are then added. Mmmmm this was my favourite!!!
Scones!! Incredibly fluffy and perfectly made
Served with fresh cream and homemade raspberry jam – both of which blew us away
Ahhhh…….. this is the life…..
