Breakfast at The Grain Store, city

Hmmm! Sometimes when something bad happens, it can turn out to be really good in hindsight! πŸ™‚ Tilly and i planned to go to Sweet Evelyn in Brunswick for this mango panna cotta, but she starts work at 8am, so we decided to be crazy and get to Sweet Evelyn at like 6:30am hahah! Anything for an adventure right? So i woke up at 3:15am, got to Springvale station nice and early and waited for the first train. The 4:46am train! I was so proud of myself getting there, with time to spare! Sleepy as i was, i happily waited. And waited.

Then i heard the announcement that there was signal failures and the train wouldnt arrive until 5:15! This was a spanner in the works of our morning, as we had timed this breakfast trip to Sweet Evelyn down to the last minute hahah!

I thought to myself, i am bummed i might miss out on this panna cotta today… but i did do all i could…. so i guess thats ok…

So i met Tilly at 6am in the city and it was still dark! In my sleepy-ish state, i was kind of enjoying it.. it still was an adventure! She suggested we go somewhere in the city, since we wouldnt have time to go to brunswick and back before her shift. And immediately my brain thought of The Grain Store! (Well done sleepy brain! You did good! :D). My friend Stefanie had told me the Grain Store was a good place for breakfast a few years ago actually, but i never got around to it. But today was the perfect chance to try it!

We walked there and went in as soon as it opened at 7am.

I immediately liked it! Some places just have a nice vibe! πŸ™‚

Our waittress was lovely! Initially i was going to order the white chocolate pancakes, but she said we have a special today, which was French Toast with Nutella (and other things too, but as soon as she said β€œnutella” my brain decided and i stopped listening to the rest hahaha). Tilly ordered the pancakes, so i got to try some of it too! Win-win! πŸ˜€

They were yummmm!

And here is my french toast:

It was so yum! I was so impressed with it! It had so many different flavours and textures and as Tilly said, they all complimented each other (shes been watching a lot of Project Runway hahaha).

I enjoyed that!

Im glad i finally got to try breakfast at the Grain Store! Its at 514 Flinders Lane in the city πŸ™‚

(Sydney!) WellCo Cafe, Leichhardt, Sydney

My friend Nadia told me about their favourite cafe in Sydney, so when i came to Sydney for the Final Fantasy concert, i really wanted to check it out. I’m so glad i did, its such a nice place πŸ™‚

It hs a really warm, friendly vibe! The staff were super  friendly. And the foooooood! Was delicious.

Check out this mocha i got:

I love coffee art, this was so nice πŸ™‚

For food i decided to order the Wellco Benedict!


My sister ordered the corn fritters. She said they were like her dream fritters, the best she’s had. Nice and crunchy.

Im really glad i came to check out Nadia’s Sydney recommendation! πŸ™‚

Wellco Cafe is at 9/39-45 Norton Road, Leichhardt in Sydney.

The Last Piece, cafe in mulgrave

My friend sheryl took me to this place. I really like it!

Its cafe in mulgrave, and the back part overlooks the football oval that hawthorn football club train at on fridays. Pretty cool!

The cafe is really nice. My friend said all the food here is nice! I chose to have the chicken burger, and sweet potato fries!

And that red drink was called ‘Beets by Dre’ hahah! I ordered it just cos of the name πŸ˜€

It was all delicious!!  I really liked this place! And the staff were really nice!

Oh and they are very much into hawthorn and the football here! πŸ™‚

Sheryl told me the letters from the seats in the football stadium, theyve embedded them into the tables! πŸ™‚

And look at that hawthorn support πŸ™‚ i go for Richmond, so i cant get too excited heheh.

But i did buy a hawthorn gingerbread man πŸ˜€

How could i not?? Theyre so cute hahah

The Last Piece is at 7/2 Stadium Circuit, Mulgrave

Thai Viet Cafe (japanese and korean lunch place)

You know what i love? Places that serve great food at affordable prices! Levina told me about this place called Thai Viet. She said its funny because its called Thai Viet, but it seems to serve mostly japanese and korean dishes! Hahah! I find that really amusing! But at the same time it doesnt matter cos the bottom line is i love this place! Delicious food! Great servings!

I mean i ordered this salmon handroll with mayonnaise.

And it was bigger than average! And it had a lot of salmon in it! And a generous chunk of wasabi! It loved eating this!

And then onto the curry chicken!

I think Levina told me it was her brother or her fathers favourite dish here. But she also said everything shes tried here is good! πŸ™‚

And yes… it was delicious!! I loved eating it! It made me happy, soul food style! And it cost $6! Isnt that great??

This place is bustling at lunchtime and i can understand why!

If you want a quick, yummy, affordable lunch when you are in the city, i recommend Thai Viet! Its at 4/113 Swanston St, tucked away in the back of Capitol Arcade. Ive walked past this place many times but i never would have known about this place until Levina told me!

And now you too, have this knowledge! ;P

Einstein’s Relative

I found out about this place from Emily, she said it was one of her fav places! I came here a while back and tried the Persian Pancakes. And loved the place and the pancakes! But that was before i started this blog. Emily told me she had a new fav dish here, mushies with challah. So today i felt like checking it out!

Doesnt this place look charming? πŸ™‚ its small but its so obvious the owners love what they do πŸ™‚

And the coffee came out

Lovely! And tastes good πŸ˜€ πŸ‘

And then i was busy chatting to the lovely owner and i looked down and the dish had appeared on the table:

Look at that! It looks glorious doesnt it? And such great flavours! Those mushrooms mmmmmm πŸ™‚ and that egg was perfect! Im a big fan of egg so i really appreicated how well that was cooked πŸ˜€ made with love for sure πŸ™‚

I really enjoyed eating that! One of my fav brunch places! Its small, but charming! Its at 9 yarra st south yarra. Just next to south yarra station πŸ™‚

Oh! Also challah is a type of jewish bread! I learnt that from wikipedia just then πŸ˜€ lets all learn about food together haah!
