Even having a quick solo meal at the restaurant at your hotel is fun. Heirloom on Bourke Street.
Tofu foam, orange ponzu, anchovy granola, spring onion
I suspected that tofu foam would be a mistake-
for me it was
Pork and prawn dumplings with chill oil and ponzu
spicy and delicious
Seared salmon, witlof, snowpea, salmon caviar yuzu sesame dressing
|Pastries at Laurent Patisserie for breakfast on the run|
|Much deliciousness left for another time|
|I didn't even get in the door of Le Petit Gateau|
but was stopped in my tracks in the street
|Buying presents for Master Wicker|
|It's almost impossible for me not to to order Agedashi tofu-|
Edoya Russell Street
|or Sashimi and Asahi. Edoya|
I was attracted by a queue on Bourke Street for The Lab Nitrogen Gelato Bar
|Interesting to watch. They put a liquid into the KitchenAid and then pour in|
liquid nitrogen to make the gelato on the spot.
|Raspberry and Nutella Tart. $6|
A bit style over substance I thought.
Perhaps the other varieties are better?
My one meal out with company, we tried a new dumpling house. Shanghai Dragon Dumpling House on Russell Street. Fabulous.
|We were stuffed with delicious house made dumplings, |
three sorts for under $30 for 2.
Walking through alleys we came upon Prix Fixe who are doing a fabulous English Midwinter menu inspired by The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe.
|What a fab idea!|
|The door was even made over as a wardrobe|
I wanted a nice pudding this night, and didn't want to go back for more nitrogelato. A quick google and I was off to OmNom at the Adelphi in Flinders Lane, where I was introduced to the concept of a Dessert Degustation! OMG. All desserts should be degustations... $55 for 3 courses.
Dark chocolate, vanilla, olive oil, honey, basil, lime,
white chocolate and meringue
Interesting, but my least favourite of my 3
Meringue, dark chocolate, chestnut, vanilla, blackberry, feuilletine
Hello. I've died and gone to heaven.
This was AMAZING.
Granny smith apple, 5 spice, chantilly, vanilla, lemongrass and ginger
Which was nice, really nice, but I was yearning for more Mont Blanc.

There are many reasons why I love visiting Melbourne. The food is just one of them. Melbourne was recently voted the world's friendliest city.
