What The Fudge

First time trying savoury food at What The Fudge and it was actually delicious.

These were surprisingly delicious. The cheese melted on the fries was yum and with the small bacon bits were yum. The chips were a bit oily but there was so much chips, good value for $8. The mayo was nice, fresh and good accompany with the chips.

Cheesy Fries $8- Chips topped with melted cheese and crispy bacon bits

Cafe I Viaggi

I’ve been to this place a few times and I always get the same dish.

This burger was good value for its price. The beef was soft and was cooked good. The onions, lettuce and beetroot and tomato was delicious. Chips were good, its always good to have chips with herbs topped on it, really adds to the flavour. The salad was alright, too much balsamic vinegar and there wasn’t a lot of salad. The bun…

Savana’s

This wasn’t my first time eating here, I went here more than 2 years ago. The chicken sandwich was big and the chicken was big. A bit big for my mouth, I’m sure for any mouth, so you’ll be using knives and forks. I mean, you’d expect it to be easier to eat such a big sandwich with forks and knives, but even then the food was falling out of the sandwich. I’m not sure if it’s a good thing that it…

Pancakes on the Rocks

Pancakes on the Rocks

It was only $7.95 and was warm, crunchy which was perfect for a winter day. It was like a pizza but with less toppings. You can taste more of the tomatoes rather than the cheese. It wasn’t melted like I wanted it to so you can’t really taste the cheese.

I wouldn’t eat this a lot of times, but since I was hungry it was filling. It was a lot for eight dollars but I would rather pay double for the…

Harvest Cafe at Bonnyrigg Garden Centre

Harvest Cafe at Bonnyrigg Garden Centre

It might sound weird going to eat at a Garden centre but the scenery is beautiful! It’s a great spot to eat out. The kitchen opens for lunch from 11.30am to 2.30pm from Monday to Saturday, and closes at 4. The food was delicious and the waiters were so nice.

Wooden Whisk {food}

Hot Chocolate $3.80

I fell in love with the sandwiches I had on my first visit almost 2 years ago. But I honestly never paid much attention to the store design or the layout itself. But this 2nd visit, really made me notice how nice of an interior Wooden Whisk had.

My Interesting Finds was invited to a mustard tasting and high tea on the Thursday 31st July, but could not attend due to commitments. Our contact was lovely enough to provide us another opportunity on a date convenience for us. So despite missing out on a special high tea at the Boronia Tea House (beautiful place!), we still wanted to taste some mustard and gain some knowledge on this from the…

Brewtown Newtown

Glazed cronut

Once you see T2, that’s the street you should be turning onto. So we arrived at Brewtown Newtown at around 10.45am and was advised the waiting time would be an hour. Considering this is so highly rated right now, we decided to deal with the waiting time. Waiting times are usually not so bad but here, we were waiting right at the stairs where the staff would carry trays of cronuts pass us! It was…

Black Star Pastry {food}

The strawberry watermelon cake, is the one main reason there’s always a long line outside of Black Star Pastry in Newtown. If you’re after a spacious dining area, visit the one in Rosebery. However if you’re after what seems to be an unlimited supply of these slices, head to Newtown instead!

This is definitely one of the nicest cakes I’ve ever tried. It’s not just the rose scented cream that…

Kitchen by Mike

It’s definitely very difficult to find the location but it’s right where Black Star Pastry is. The entrance to the restaurant/cafe is just via the sliding doors with the sign ‘slide to enter’. It’s as if entering a huge garage where you have no idea what could be in store for you. I definitely really liked the set up of the restaurant because it’s just very chilled and very simple. I love how…

train ride from Beijing to Xi’An {travel}

So my 3 days in Beijing had ended and I was to prepare myself to travel from Beijing railway station to Xi’an via a soft sleeper train. I wouldn’t have known the way from my hotel to Beijing railway station so thank goodness I was taken there by the tour.If you are in need of finding a way to the railway station, other sources such as Lonely Planet and Travel China Guide can be really helpful.…
