One of the most fascinating things about Melbourne has to be the large amount of what I'd like to call: secret restaurants. When we are out and about in the city it's cool to pop into one of the many ethnic restaurants on the main streets, but it's even better to wonder off the empty alleys just around the corner and discover new places! This seems to be something quite common in big cities, which makes sense considering the endless possibilities of warehouses and garages that could be turned into bars, and sometimes they are pop-up places destined to stay open less than a year. Needless to say that not even Melburnians know Melbourne.
A couple of my friends from France came to visit me in Melbourne, and for the first time since I moved here I felt a little bit at home as I told them something about the city, showed them around, and wrote down a list of things to do, see, and especially eat while they're here. I've known them for quite some time now but it was the first time for my boyfriend to meet them, I was hoping for him to like them at least half as much as I do. Because God knows sometimes silence can be awkward!
The other morning I was going to the city with my boyfriend, although I'd like to say I went there for a massive shopping trip, I was actually there for a job interview. He has a passion for cars and when we are sitting together on a bus, or when he's driving, he wouldn't miss pointing out the newest or most expensive car around us.
Every time I go to England I mentally prepare for a 5pm high tea with the Queen.
Because that's gonna happen, right? And now that I'm on the other side of the World, but still in the Commonwealth, I feel like I'm still allowed to think of afternoon teas. So start stretching and tying your runners because the following post might be pretty high in sugar.
You don't have to get two just because it says it's 2 for $3.
