Burgers @ Grill’d

I still loved Grill’d … Big portion and healthy (well, almost) … There are Grill’d everywhere in Melbourne, so if you would like to visit any of them, you can visit any of them by just google from its official website. My boyfriend loves Grill’d and we want some BIG BIG burgers to fill our stomach, we decided to go for Grill’d that was located in QV. I have  “Summer Sunset  beef burger” and my boyfriend ordered “Sweet Chili Chicken” Burger. Do order their “herb” chips with sweet chili mayo or herb mayo as its going to taste much more delicious.

This is their tomato sauce that each table will have for the burgers…. Isn’t that cutee?? I would love to have one especially it is in red colour!

Gaijin @ South Yarra

What do you think of when it comes to Buffet Time? Is it the usual seafood buffet, international buffet? Well, if you are looking for something new, consider this place as one of your option!  It was recently opened (I think in Year 2009), and they are mainly japanese cuisine. They used to only offer like main dish like different types of sushi, but now they do offer buffet (All You can eat Sushi) . The names of their dishes are special too such as “Baked Dynamite Roll”, “South Yarra Special”, etc.. Such an interesting name, don’t they? 😀 Their prices are a bit pricy, but it will be worth it once in a while to go gathering with friends because it is just near Prahan market 🙂

Mr Funny kebab @ Sydney Road, Coburg

Has anyone heard of “Mr Funny Kebab” that is located at Sydney Road, Coburg. Yess!! You might heard me, I am going to share about their food that i’ve tried there once before. I rarely go for kebab because to find a good kebab place is usually far away from where I lived. Only if my friends and I were to go in big group, then we will go and have dinner there.

My Funny Kebab is probably (to me) the first kebab place that I’ve been to. Just the name itself is very interesting, isn’t it? 😀 We ordered about 2 combination packages to be shared among 7 of us..  The main thing about Kebab places are the different types of sauces that they usually make. Thus, each combination, we ordered different sauces in order to try them out. One of them (which is our all time favourite) is the chilli paste. 😀 It was not really hot, but just unusual to have dip of chilli paste. Another nice little offer they have is that all combination package comes with rice underneath the meat that is on each plate. With such a big portion, it only cost $10.00 to be shared for at lease 2 -3 person. Unless you are a big-eater, then it is very cheap to have dinner there occasionally. 🙂

My purchase @ Zara Australia, Bourke Street

I had planned to go visit Zara Australia but it was just a thinking because due to the fact that it will be a  total chaos in Zara Store opening with people gushing through the shop to have a peek of what is in store. Without having high hope to get into the store, my friend and I decided to try on our luck to see if we are lucky enough to get through.

Surprisingly, when we arrived, although we have to queue to get in, but it was just merely less than 3 minutes (or less). Is it because I arrived at 6pm where most people have done their shopping? 😀 Anyway, we walked in and consumers are grabbing some clothes on their hands, some are like as if they have never buy clothes before, carrying big big pile of clothes and ready to  pay for them.. I was really excited to see not only the enthusiastic faces around me, but I am impressed with the style design that they have. With bright colours, simple cutting and design (suitable for winter or upcoming spring), the designs (I would say) are suitable to the local taste of fashionista. Although they do have many black pieces, mainly I observed many have chosen other colour than black. That’s Melbourne! To my opinion, they have done enough and good surveys in order to check what the consumers are looking for when shopping.

Coming back to me ( still VERY VERY happy of what I have purchase), I bought 5 pieces which consist of 4 tops and 1 RED skirt 🙂

Top with Stars

Pleated Skirt

Top with Gathered Shoulders

Blouse with Turn up sleeve

I couldn’t find the 5th piece from Zara Website, so I would choose to keep it a secret as to the last piece that I have purchased. Well, Aren’t they just cute and gorgeous? Considering they can be just easily matched with jeans. shorts, pants (for work), ready for spring look or even summer look. Their designs are never outdated with these pieces.

A small incident has happened to me when I paid at the cashier. When I have paid for the clothes, the cashier (or somehow) has forgotten to put one of my pieces into the shopping bag. I left the place and headed to my another friend place who has a shop in Melbourne Central. My friend asked me of what I bought and there I realised the green piece (as above) that I paid for is not there!! I kind of panic but in the same time, I walked back to Zara, thinking of what I should ask so that they would know or try to even remember if the lady in that cashier would still remember me… So when I arrived, I straight went back to the pretty nice lady who served me earlier. Before I could even open my mouth, she asked ” is the green top that you purchased?” And there you GO….! They even write down the details of what card number has purchased for my piece and put it in the back cabinet they have behind their cashier machine. I was totally satisfied with their service with the fact that such details, they would even bother to comply. Another applause and a very very good comment was they indeed have good co-ordination and organisation when such situation might happen during in busy time. This is just the perfect example that I think other retail store should learn.

Nevertheless, I will be looking forward to see what they will have in store in coming weeks and I shall get my wallet ready to spend just in Zara if they are continuing to have such tremendous pieces that I love. In the same time, their reputation in me has begun to arise and left a deep impression of what I think of them. 🙂

Happy Shopping !

Kanteen @ South Yarra

I thought it was only few weeks ago that I went to this place Kanteen at South Yarra for the first time. I really missed their breakfast as well as their well designed location that is just beside the Yarra River. It was a nice little brunch moment, enjoying the wind breeze and the sunlight. Their half open space has attracted many people to enjoy coffees and breakfast that they would offer. My first time to visit is totally a worthy trip, with the accompanies of nice meals on the menu.

KimChi Lunchbox @ Glenferrie Part 2

I went to KimChi LunhBox yesterday to have lunch once again. It seems that the place will be one of my regular place to visit as they offer the cheap meal with only $10.00 on lunch sets. This time, I ordered something different and with the Menu look. So next time if you are visiting Glenferrie, this place can be one of the choice to think about. After lunch, go visit the Starbucks just 5 shops down the streets for nice little coffee.. 🙂

Spicy Beef LunchBox

Not like any other places, they do not actually give out free top up on Kimchi side dish. Instead, it will cost $1.00 to have another small bowl of Kimchi. All the staffs that I saw are mostly Koreans, and so I would assume that it should be Korean authentic dishes that they would offer. Looking at the menu, one of their special dishes would be hot plate (such as fried rice on hot plate, spicy beef on rice served on hot plate). The hot plate size just looks like a saucepan size type, so i think it is much easier than the usually hot plate that comes in the bowl shape. Enjoy people 😀

Place :

650-652 Glenferrie Rd
