(Been a tad busier than usual, so this procrastination is almost justifiable!)
The week starts on Monday, often with a trip to some new breakfast place.
Little Bean Blue (15 Little Collins St) had been on the to-go list for quite a while, so a hop, skip and jump from Parliament station and L and I were seated in the confines of the minimalistic room, enjoying the first coffee of the morning.
|L's flat white ($3.80)|
Today's afternoon return confirmed it wasn't a one-off. I was feeling for something to accompany the cup this time, but flies helping themselves to the pastries scared me away.
Oli & Levi (20 Coromandel Place, turn in from Lt. Collins st) followed closely afterwards. Much to my delight, it was one of those cafe's where, on entering, a wave of hot air welcomes you and does away with the violent cold of winter.Admittedly, there isn't much else to behold. The room is small, but cosy, with a large communal table in the centre and one (or was it two?) smaller tables in the corner.
Heard of David Choi? He came to Melbourne for a concert about two weeks back and visited here..except I missed it again. Go away bad timing, nobody likes you ;__; But back on track..
|From L to R: Hazelnut, chocolate, blueberry and matcha|
Shop 25G Melbourne GPO 350 Bourke St). Not a fan of bamboo shoots, but they didn't smell too badly here. Soup was outrageously saline as usual, but the pork was surprisingly good. The fat melted in the mouth, but since it was thinly sliced, the sensation as wasn't satisfying as it could have been. But at $10 a bowl, they've got to be a bit stingy :P
52 Collins St) We stayed long enough so all the tables had emptied ^^;
