Local Tap House- St. Kilda
First up, I met some friends for brunch at the Local Taphouse in St. Kilda last week, which happened to be Good Beer Week in Melbourne. I don't really like beer but I have to say this fruity variety wasn't bad!
The Golden Triangle- South Yarra
My friend Lauren has raved about this place for months, so Peter and I had high hopes and it definitely delivered. The portions were huge, the prices were good, and this Pad Thai was among the best I've ever had.
Manchester Press- CBD
This one was from before our trip, but I really liked this bagel place and never posted about it so here it is!
I Actually Cooked
Lastly, Peter and I made this Cajun Chicken Pasta this week. Peter said it was really good...I've had what can only be described as the most stubborn cold ever all week and haven't been able to taste much, so I'll take his word for it.
And for something non-food-related, I met Sylvie in Federation Square last night before going to her place to watch Married at First Sight- the Australian version just premiered last week and is the most fabulous show ever. Basically, two people who have never met get married. It sounds a bit far-fetched but they are analyzed and matched by psychologists and relationship experts so most of the couples actually seem to be a good match and hit it off. It's only week two though, so we'll see if the marriages are actually successful.
Anyway, I took a couple pictures while waiting for Sylvie because Federation Square at night is just amazing.
