Winter Night Markets 2015

The 2015 winter night market is on again and you need to go.

They have included a new fun thing called the silent disco whereby people have headphones and are linked to the same channel that tells you the actions you need to complete. There is nothing like a bunch of people just silently moving up to you and busting a groove to bring a smile on your dial. Especially if you have no idea what they’re doing.

And as always I ensured that I got into the best food option there was. Given it was my birthday recently, I caught up with a good friend, after a long time. By long, I mean it’s been a year. And we caught up at the exact same thing last year.

But unlike last time, I made sure to go around the entire section to get a glimpse of everything before I let my stomach decide. Last time, I had an amazing burger only to find more exotic fare 5 stalls down (crocodile and ostrich).

Melbourne: Kedai Satay

First of all, I’ve never really tried Indonesian and my foray in to it by a good friend of mine (hat tip BT) was more than I could ever hope for.

Location: 186 King street, Melbourne 3000.

You know what I have to just cut to the chase. The food was served so fast that I thought that the quality was going to be compromised. But no. This was by far the most delicious meal that I had. The grilled beef ribs with steam rice, sambal and salad was so so so SO delicious. Even now, I can taste the food coating in the back of my throat and the smells are making me drool.

Nothing can prepare you for it. Seriously.

I thought I would not be full, but by the end of it, I was filled to hilt. And the price? $12.

Do yourself a favour, just go there and you won’t be disappointed.

I’m so excited that I have to give this place a resounding 5/5.

And it’s a one man kitchen. The efficiency of a well run operation just swelled my heart with pride. A few places, across multiple industries could learn a thing or two from this restaurant.

Dandenong: Dandenong Pavilion

The rumours are true. There is a secret menu. And it’s here to stay.

Location
The Dandenong Pavilion is like finding a spare $50 in a pocket of an old jacket when you’re budget has run out. Unless you’ve been in that situation, you cannot begin to fathom the awesomeness of such a find. Nestled in dandenong, this place is a true delight that’s worth taking the time to step into.
