A weathered Brunch at Tower Cafe

First, let me paint the scene for you..

It was a typical Tasmanian Winter late morning – dreary and overcast, with the leaves just sopping with rain. Just finished an early shift at work and with a hot coffee and food in the front of my mind, and my mum having a day off work, the idea of a spontaneous brunch out became a reality.

A pretty standard outing, yet with an especially great reward.

Road-Tripping to the Valley

After pushing through a long week of work a day off couldn’t just be spent with my feet up, eating large quantities of food and watching day television re-runs.
With this weekend just been marking one month since returning back to live in Launceston, Tasmania from Melbourne, I thought a day trip out to my childhood area of Tasmania – the Meander Valley – for an afternoon of Indie Folk music and (had to get it in my day off somehow) large quantities of food.

The ever-breathtaking hour long drive out my Uncle and Aunty’s cafe/the day’s sold-out music venue, Marakoopa Cafe in Mayberry, was met at the end by a fantastic group of 30+ Sunday music enthusiasts not deterred by a 13-degree day merely a week after the state (and especially the area of Meander Valley) suffered some of it’s worst floods and rainfalls in history.

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

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.

Melbourne: Food Republik

On nights when you just want steak and after a hard gym session, letting someone else make food decision on your behalf is definitely not a good idea. If, however, you want an option that hits the protein and carb spots, then Food Republik is the place to be! Continue reading “Melbourne: Food Republik”

Melbourne: Heart of St Kilda Concert

Every year, there is one concert that’s really worth it. One that I’m willing to break my self imposed rules to attend. Never has a festival had such an amazing line up of comedians, local favourites and the true heart of the suburb of st kilda. Continue reading “Melbourne: Heart of St Kilda Concert”

Melbourne: Pok Pok Junior

As a big fan of Thai food, I will search high and low to find a great treat no matter where it might be located. When Pok Pok opened in Docklands, it was, in my opinion the first bastion of possibility to the area. Their coffee was amazing and the food delicious. If anything, my first ever Urbanspoon post was on them!
