Top Paddock x Adriano Zumbo x Chi-Mac (Korean-Mexican Fusion) x Il Dolce Freddo Gelato x Bowery to Williamsburg x Messina Gelato x Darac
It was two years since my last trip to Melbourne/we had a long haul getaway, and it feels soooo good to be back in Melbourne. Feels exactly like I am back home where I belong, even though I didn’t exactly have any experience living in Melbourne.
The first food hunt pit stop was at Top Paddock and the guys couldn’t stop raving about the hot cakes that was served; not only did it look pretty, it was soft and fluffy on the inside, crispy on the outside! And coming from the non-coffee lover, I thought that the coffee was really good and that definitely kept me warm on a chilly morning! Tried Adriano Zumbo’s Zumbarons for the first time and I felt that it was a disappointment – too creamy I could hardly taste the flavours, and the shells lacked texture. :/
Had my virgin experience to a Korean-Mexican fusion meal at Chi-Mac and I actually enjoyed my meal a lot more than I expected. My favourite has got to be that Kimchi quesadillas while the guys adored their Beef Bulgogi Tacos! To end of our first day, I finally tried on Il Dolce Freddo for the first time, and I loved their signature Rocher & Durian!
Adabelle brought us to Bowery to Williamsburg the next day for breakfast, followed by a long string of food expedition the thought of food made me feel dizzy I swear. D: But there’s always, always room for ice-cream/gelato! Sydney’s famous Messina Gelato opened their first store in Melbourne and it’s no surprise to expect a wave in Fitzroy! We had some of the most unique flavours (think Bacon) there, and it was definitely a thumbs up! And as if I’d let Jon off for letting the go by without our Korean food fix, we headed over to Darac for dinner. Food was as good as usual, and that’s one cuisine I’d miss about Melbourne (ironically)!
I can’t decide if it makes me smile or upset while recapping everything about this trip because it is making me miss everything back in Down Under. Just bring me back right now. :'(
