Walker’s Doughnuts in Melbourne

When you have a friend who is a cabin crew and flies to Melb so often, you can be sure that his food recommendations have been tried and tasted. So glad that we were able to meet up and I was brought to this gem of a doughnut! Located at the corner of Elizabeth Street and Flinders Street opposite the Flinders Street Railway station is Walker’s Doughnuts.

Looks like your any other regular doughnut shop along the street. But hidden in there were yummylicious NUTELLA DOUGHNUTS!

Although they looked unassuming compared to the other ‘prettier’ doughnuts in the glass case, do not be fooled. The doughnuts were fluffy and not oily or sometimes dry as some doughnuts are. And in the doughnut packed a nutella punch! I think I had 3 during my trip. Totally worth the calories 😉

Toasta & Co. in Melbourne

This place is a gem! Was attending workshops at the Australian Barista Academy around the corner and my instructor John recommended this place for lunch. I already like how it looked outside even before I stepped in. Those minty blue walls ❤ ❤

Love the space and warmth feel in the cafe with pops of colour on the wall. I can totally spend the afternoon chilling there.

John was right about how good their sandwiches are! And they are made using sourdough which I totally love. This is my kinda expectations for a sandwich. Toasted to perfection 🙂 Ingredients are well paired too. Their sandwich names are cute. I had the Rami 🙂

Darling Cafe in Melbourne

A friend recommended that I visit this cafe and I am so glad I did! Was there on a Saturday at around noon and there was a pretty good crowd. It has a lovely ambience with a lot of natural light. A very relaxed and casual setting. And it is only a short walk from the South Yarra station 🙂

Spoilt for choice with the menu. I was staring at the menu and browsing their instagram during the train ride there ahahah… Hmmm..sweet or savoury… #firstworldproblem… :p After much deliberation I settled with the marinated lamb fillet on 3 bean salad with baked falafel, grilled figs, chipotle yoghurt & spicy hummus. They nailed it with this dish! The fillet was perfectly grilled and the salad had a refreshing fusion flavour. They smashed it with the falafel. I am a chickpea and papadam fan so I totally love the falafel.

Well looks like the pokemon fever is still on in Melb. Eat them all!

Enjoying a cuppa in winter with the warmth of the sun shining in was just awesome.

The Mussel Pot

Seafood of any kind is my weakness. So glad I didn’t miss this at Shed A, Queen Victoria Market, Melbourne. Doesn’t the little stall look like it is gonna take off anytime? hehe… Nothing but mussels here 🙂 You can choose to buy them raw for home cooking or have the friendly uncles grill or steam them for you. There is a whole long list of flavours you can choose to have your mussels cooked in. And yup the queue is long too but totally worth it.

Chose the classic steamed ones with garlic and white wine (Also bcos that was the only flavour left :p). Freshness overload for A$10 😀
