Vanilla Slice at Haytch Cafe in Thornbury

At the front of this cafe in thornbury, there was this sign that said

The famous vanilla slice! Whenever i see a sign like that, i get curious! Its pretty bold to put a statement like that out there! I was on a Day of the Donut, with Tilly today, where we go to different places to try out donuts, but i felt like since i was here, i should try out the vanilla slice.

So firstly i got a mocha

It came complete with a H coffee art on it! (The owners names start with H, and their nickname is Haytch!).

It was a good mocha! ๐Ÿ™‚

Then the rest came out

After devouring the delicious donut, i picked up the vanilla slice with my fingers, ready to get into it! It tastes better to me that way haha!

And one bite, and i knew they were correct with the sign out the front. It was a good vanilla slice!! I had a good time eating that! ๐Ÿ™‚

And some other things i liked about Haytch. The service was so friendly!

And also, this wall art!

Its by mimbyjonesrobinsonart, and i think its beautiful! ๐Ÿ™‚

Haytch is at 690 high st in thornbury

JDโ€™s Burgers, Dragonball themed Burger place in Surrey Hills

Lisa Lai told me about this place a while ago, and i was catching up with my friend Nick who is a massive dragonball fan, and i thought this would be the perfect opportunity!

Firstly, it is literally a step outside Mont Albert train station haha!

So convenient!

As i waited for Nick, someone waved at me and came up to me. It was Dom!!! What a pleasant surprise! And he was with Linda!! Apparently theyd seen me sitting on the bench and thought is that Thuan? Haha!! At an anime burger joint, the chances are high hehe!

Then Nick arrived and we went inside! I dont know that much about dragonball. Ive only seen the last two movies. But i still geeked out hard at the dragonball theme!!

And then we went to order. I love that the burgers are named after dragonball characters! I ended up choosing the Goku Fusion.

It was delicious!! A really good burger ๐Ÿ™‚

Nick chatted to me about dragonball and explained a lot about what was going in with the new anime. It was the perfect venue! ๐Ÿ™‚ and the service was lovely too!

Definitely check this place out if you are in the area and feel like a good burger. And even more so if u are a dragonball fan ๐Ÿ˜€

Its at 17 hamilton st in mont albert

Chocolate Chess Tart, Beatrix in North Melbourne

My friends Fiona and Tilly often tag me in facebook posts from this place called Beatrix, and they always have the most creative, delicious looking stuff! Today Tilly and I were passing through North Melbourne and we decided to stop by to check it out. And im glad we did! It was a great place!

Its a cosy little store, with a variety of delicious cakes on display. On their instagram page for today, they showed a picture of something called a chocolate chess pie, and they used the hashtag #piethinkiloveyou ! ๐Ÿ™‚ i love puns so i loved that! So when i was choosing what to get, i decided to try this chocolate chess pie!

But first i wanna show u a pic of the tables outside:

They had bottles of sunscreen for their patrons on each of the tables! I loved that. I had never seen this done before. Dont you love a place that cares about its patrons? ๐Ÿ™‚

Ok so this is what i had:

It was great! I loved that it wasnt too sweet, it was just right! And the pastry part of it was firm enough that i could pick it up and eat it that way if i wanted! (And i did take a few glorious bites this way!) The pie was just the right amount of moistness! Yes it was fab! And i got to try Tilly’s crumble that she ordered and that was delicious too!

So if u are around north mellbourne and are looking for somewhere to go for coffee and cake, i think Beatrix is a great place ๐Ÿ™‚ its at 688 Queensberrt St North Melbourne ๐Ÿ™‚

Churros in Chocolate, from A Touchof Spain food truck, outside NGV

I was waiting for my friend in front of the National Gallery of Victoria on this sunny sunday, and i noticed this sign nearby.

โ€œThe best churros with chocolate in the World!โ€

Now that is a bold claim and it really piqued my interest! I always think, you have to be pretty confident in your wares to say that ๐Ÿ™‚ i knew I really wanted to try. Once id met my friend and weโ€™d grabbed some food from the nearby market stalls, we were crossing the road to go to the park when my friend said โ€œare you gonna try those churros?โ€.

We were in the MIDDLE of crossing the road when i decided, you know what? I am going to try these. today!! I need to know. Are they the best in the world? ๐Ÿ˜€

So we went over and sat down near the food truck. I went up to order some churros and chocolate. And the man said โ€œdo you mind waiting for 5 minutes? We have to cook it. Its good when you eat it hot.โ€ I was like thats fine! Ill just eat this market food i have first (delicious Alepas!)

So i was sitting and eating my Alepas and after a while my friend said โ€œThese churros are taking a whileโ€

And i joked, maybe hes timing it to that when i finish eating, he can serve it to me straight away.

โ€œWell hes just got a few seconds, because youre about to finishโ€ she said.

And i finished eating my alepas. Put it down. Then 10 seconds later, the churros man waved me over to the truck to get my churros!!

Like he waited until i finished eating before serving me my churros!

This is a guy who cares about his customers and their eating experiences.

And here they are. I had a good feeling as soon as i saw them. The i ate them.

Yes!

Those churros were so good! Just perfect.

My friend agreed!

We thoroughly enjoyed eating them ๐Ÿ™‚ and they do get my vote too hhaha!! I can vouch for this sign ๐Ÿ˜€

The truck is outside the NGV, probably every weekend when the market is on! They also have a facebook page ๐Ÿ™‚

Good churros! ๐Ÿ™‚
