Snapshots again today!
Starting off with architecture again, I just loooove Melbourne’s old buildings!
The churches here are amazing too, I just want to take so many photos of them!
We tried out the famous Lord of the Fries restaurant and oh wow it was good!
James even ate a burger from there even though it’s a completely vegetarian place… and he loved it too!
There was apparently a fire on our street too though I don’t know where.
Haha this post seems to be all about food… but that’s pretty much all I’ve been doing this week XD
James worked out how to make thin crust pizza, mine was full of fetta… mmmm delicious!
He also tried to top last week’s heart rice by making 4 hearts XD
The big event we went to this year was Taste of Melbourne. Basically it’s where all the fine dining restaurants come and offer little stalls with a couple of their famous dishes to choose from in smaller portions so you can try lots of them and decide where you want to spend your money later. They have lots of different stall holders from local markets with free samples and information too.
This was the place it was held…
We had to change our money into “Crowns” which is the currency of the event XD
Just after walking in James found his ultimate dream car…. one full of Ben and Jerry’s icecream XD
These were some of the dishes we tasted, I don’t know much about food so if you want to read about the details click here for Celeste’s run down.
James was so excited to try a Wagyu beef burger, apparently it was really good XD
The building it was in was incredible! Every surface had the most beautiful paintings on it.
I want ceilings like this in my house!!
For some reason I kept getting photobombed all damn right! Look at this guy at the ice cream sandwich stand XD Yeah muscles Hahahaha!
And then James decided to see how many of my photos he could get into! Damn you James!!
That photo was actually taken by a lovely lady from a stand selling flavoured oils an vinegars. Their brand is called “Pukara Estate” and her and her partner were just so friendly and lovely! Their products tasted really good and I’m totally going to put an order in for the truffle oil I tasted! I had never tried truffles before then but clearly I have expensive taste 😉
It was absolutely packed!
There were a whole lot of free wine tastings too so there was a lot of this going on:
One of my favorite exhibits was the Smeg kitchen appliance one!! They had the coolest fridges, including a matching set of baby pink retro fridge and laundry! I want them so badly! One day when I’m rich right haha!
I’m sure if I had an apron like this I would probably want to be in the kitchen more XD
By the end of the night the venue was soooo hot and we were all very tired so Celeste, Celinaand found a nice cool spot to wait while the boys lined up for $1 pasta.
Kev managed to find a little coffee stand, how cute!
So the verdict on Taste of Melbourne? AWESOME! I had so much fun! I found the fine dining food was about 50/50 good/bad but the stall holders and the variety greatly made up for everything. I will most definitely be going back next year. Thank you so much Penny for our tickets!!
We visited the DFO at South Warf too this week though I don’t think it was really anything to write home about.
The most amusing thing about the trip was the gigantic windy bridge we walked across that looked like a big snake skeleton.
And some sea gulls taking a bath!
The lovely Candice also had a party on the weekend which was lots of fun. The most amusing party of the night happened on the way there on the train though. A bunch of drunks were having a loud conversation about football and which teams they were going for etc. They involved me to settle the argument as apparently the bow on the back of my hair was Collingwood colors while my hair was Hawthorne colours thus making me impartial LOLOLOLOLOLOL! When we got to the station the Police came and arrested them for drinking on the train XD
And today I will leave you with the coolest lamp post I’ve ever seen. I need a garden full of these!
Did you all have a fun week?
