Recent Cravings for cupcakes

My recent cravings for cupcakes are getting serious. @___@

From where I worked, there is a nearby “Little cupcakes” shop nearby where  I can get easily get cupcakes for my tea time. Little cupcakes is the first original cupcake store (as fas as I know) where they have lots and lots of various cupcakes made everyday. I have made a collection of what they usually have in store.

Apparently, Red Velvet flavour is one of the most popular flavour that most regular customers would go for it. Secondly, belgian chocolate , cookies & cream are my favourites too. So don’t forget to try them out when you are there! Order different types and share with your best friends! 😀

They have in standard sizes or mini sizes. For me, I find mini cupcakes is just prefect for tea session. Of course, by all means if you are a fan of cupcakes, then just let go everything for a standard size. Nevertheless, do try their Mocha or Hot chocolate to go with the delicious desserts.

They accept for online ordering at Little cupcakes website

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. 🙂

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 😀

Seoul Restaurant @ Little Bourke Street

I was browsing back at my albums and found some food pictures that I’ve went lately, yet no time to upload and share with my fellow bloggers. 🙂

Well, now let me introduce Seoul restaurant which located at Little Bourke Street. I guess some Melbournians would recognize this place. Anyway.. 🙂 there were only 3 of us whom my friend is a regular customer, so she decided to bring me to have lunch.

The place was antique and look old form outdoor decoration. When you enter to the restaurant, the interior design is different from the usual Korean restaurant that most of you might have been to. Of course, for me, it’s a different atmosphere as I always anticipated. Looking at the menu and looking at the surrounding customers who are eating halfway through, I am still confused of what I should have. In the end, I asked my friend for opinion what’s famous that they usually cooked.

I’ve ordered KimChi Fried rice and we both share Spicy fried chicken. On top of that, we ordered BBQ Chicken and beef (Bulgogi) to be served.

Pacific House @ South Yarra

I went to Pacific House on my Birthday with few of my friends. It was such a long time ago that the last time I have went. Overall, the food are still delicious, but getting packed than before. The price that you would expect is around $20+ per dish as you can share around the table. I have ordered 4 dishes which includes 2 combinations of Duck and BBQ Pork, Crocodile meat with XO sauce, Chinese Brocolli with abalone mushroom and its famous Fried spare ribs with salted eggs. Anyone who visits there must try the fried spare ribs with salted eggs because so far they  have the best taste I have ever had! 😀

With all these dishes, I only spend amount $110+ and we were all really full.

Windsor Hotel for Tea Time

Just a few months ago, 2 of my best friends and I went to Windsor Hotel to have our tea time session. Before we went, I did some researches on the review for their tea time. Most people who have been there have commented that they served one of the best tea time in Melbourne. With $59 per person for tea time, each of us are being served each set of assorted cakes, sandwiches, scones and  different types of tea to choose from and champagne we can enjoy.

The adventure is totally different as the place is full of old, antiques and it feels like I’m into the 17th centuries back to the past. I am totally so in love with the whole surrounding around me…

A very nice place to go and MUST try for once in a life-time. They only do certain limited quantities, so you need to make reservations in order not to waste your trip 😀 www.thehotelwindsor.com.au

Let me proudly introduce “so far” the best beef steak and salmon steak that I have ever tried in Melbourne or even anywhere else that I’ve been. not surprisinly, I believed most people would know the existence of  Hog’s Breath Cafe. They main introduction will be their most famous beef steak (come in 200g, 300g or 400g). Atmosphere of the place is almost like a “Cowboy Town”.

I went there on my Valentine’s day! And so we started off with food fingers : Finger Food Combo. It comes with “potato skins (ham with cheese, tomato with cheese and red beans with salsa), delicious vegetable spring rolls, crumbed chicken tenders and salt & pepper dusted calamari. Served with a duo of dipping sauces: honey sweet chilli and Hog’s Breath honey mustard.” The price for this entree is $19.95.

On our main courses, we ordered Garlic Prawn Prime Rib and Salmon Steak and the portion is justtttt sooo hugeeee! -___-” Please refer to the photos above 😀

  • Garlic Prawn Prime Rib comes with 4 big prawns, 400g of medium done of beef steak, chips, gourmet salad and Garlic creamy sauces.
  • Salmon Steak comes with creamy smash potatoes, green salad, 1 handful of salmon steak and sweet chilli sauce for dipping.

Price ranges will start from $24 and above for the main dishes. Very very reasonable price as the portions are just more than enough. Desserts and drinks are also available from the menu!
