Welcome to Hannah and Sheena’s weekend of food, where we ate our way through Melbourne and saw a little bit of culture in between meals.
It was a very indulgent weekend, and I don’t think either of us regret a thing. Sometimes, you just have to let go and enjoy yourself!
First stop: Tempranillo at Arbory Bar, on a dreary Melbourne evening.
Breakfast Thieves, in Fitzroy, delivered the goods! Apple and Rhubarb crumble, yoghurt and granola, as well as the best cheesy soldiers to dunk into soft boiled eggs. [I didn’t finish it all, it was insane]
A cheeky pitstop, while waiting for our jeans to be altered. If you’re looking for the perfect pair of jeans, you HAVE to make time for Dejour in Brunswick.
As you enter, you are engulfed by denim. Once you settle on a colour, you wait in line to try them on [I see queues as a sign of how good the product is]. A hipster gal will measure you up, draw in chalk on the jeans where you need alterations and in an hour’s time you come back to collect. All for $55!
Honestly, I have never had a pair of jeans fit me so well. With my big thighs and small waist it has been a struggle, until now!
Snacking on bao buns and hot soya milk, from the incredible Wonderbao.
Amphlett Lane; homage to the late, great Chrissy Amphlett of the Divinyls. Mum was stoked to make it here, and pay her musical respects.
I had to take mother dearest to experience a Chin Chin dinner, and see what all the fuss was about. We scored a seat at the bar and watched the organized chaos unfold. The duck curry with thai basil and BBQ cuttlefish with papaya salad were to die for!
We ended our night by straying off the beaten path, to see a performance of Dracula in St Kilda.
It was completely silent, no dialogue, full frontal nudity and the most confusing plot I’ve ever witnessed. However, it was brilliant, the actors were incredible and it definitely got us out of our comfort zones!
Stay tuned for the next couple of days in our trip, we hadn’t even hit our peak of eating at this stage…
