“Yes, he is.”
“Well, he will be soon, he’s very ill.”
“I’m getting better!”
“No, you’re not — you’ll be stone dead in a moment.”
“I think I’ll go for a walk!”
That’s right, dear readers I’m still here, still kicking. The only excuse I have for you is that The Eastern being in town again and the increasingly dark walks to and from work have led to a hard-to-shake laziness in regards to keeping you up to date on what I eat. But no more! Here’s a rundown of amazing and secret (maybe, probably not) places to get great food in Melbourne
The Horn: Great for those who dislike utensils, not so great for those who aren’t very adventurous with their food choices. This place is probably a little overpriced for what you get but if you’ve always wanted to eat with your hands in public or eat Ethiopian food at the table next to someone who has a tattoo of Ethiopia, this is the place to be* (*I can’t guarantee that person will be there at all times, it was probably a once off but the significance isn’t lessened).
Bluebird: For a killer early morning breakfast served to you by majority kiwis, Bluebird is the only place to go. Well, maybe. It seems like almost everyone in Melbourne is a NZer. Anyway, go to Bluebird for the perfect weekend breakfast brunch whether you like it sweet, salty, spicy or milkshak-y.
Johnston St Milk Bar: Speaking of milkshakes! The milk bar is my new favourite cafe/restaurant/bar of all time thanks to its awesome milkshake menu (Cherry Ripe anyone?), board game selection and build-your-own breakfasts. That and the fact that it has almost the best pizzas of all time (title still owned by Memphis Belle in Chch)and that the dude with yellow glasses that works there is clearly the supreme master of the universe (but not in a cult-y way)
Hutong: For the best soup dumplings and chinese brocolli you’ll ever eat. Plus you can eat them till you explode, for under $15.
More tomorrow!! Love you all. But mainly, let’s face it, because only my friends read this. LOVE YOU ALL!!!
Yay Hu Tong! I love the spicy wontons, too.
