Aaaand part 2 of my eats in Melbourne! Absolutely GOTTA have the half pound chocolate eclair from Walker’s Doughnuts (26/2 Elizabeth St, Melbourne) which is all kinds of amazing with rich chocolate icing, fluffy cream innards and light choux pastry.
Word on the street is that Lord of the Fries will be finally coming to Sydney soon but meanwhile I will grab a regular fries with French Canadian sauce every time I see it! I mean, what’s not to love? Golden fries, pile of cheese and a river of gravy? BEST!
We hit Degraves Street for awesome coffee and people watched all the hipsters amble by.
QV markets is high on the hit list to visit where there’s cheeses, cured meats and fresh produce galore. We grabbed a whole bunch of stuff plus a bottle of wine and had a picnic in our hotel room after a crazy day of shopping.
Battle of the burger time! I’ve been hearing so much about Huxtaburger (106 Smith St, Collingwood) so a tram ride later we grabbed a seat at the counter and ordered the Theo ($11.50) to share- a huxtaburger with bacon, double pattie, double cheese and bbq sauce. It was freaking tasty but it kinda collapsed in on itself with the amount of juices a-flowing.
We were wandering down the street and stumbled past Rockwell and Sons (288 Smith St, Collingwood) another joint well known for their burgers. The Double Patty Smash Burger ($10) with Kraft cheese, Special Sauce on a Seeded Bun is epic. It was juicy but didn’t fall apart and the Kraft cheese surprisingly worked in that it didn’t overpower the patty. Best fricken burger I’ve had in a long time!
There was Steak Tartare ($18) for Noods at Bistro Vue (430 Little Collins Street Melbourne) which made him incredibly happy.
Aaaand to round things off there were rainbow macs from La Belle Miette (30 Hardware Lane, Melbourne) where Caramel Fleur de Sel, Pimm’s & Pomegranate and Pistachio were smash hits with the tastebuds. Oh Melbourne what a delicious city you are!
