Last week was crazy busy with many late nights and my Friday night finishing at 1am. 2 1/2 hours later I was up again to catch a flight to Melbourne for our 1 year wedding/10 years of dating anniversary. I love Melbourne. I could happily move there in a flash.
We pretty much ate our way through the weekend and explored as many boutique shops as we could find. We dined at the very fancy Neil Perry's Rockpool restaurant and I had the most amazing goats cheese stuffed tortellini with burnt butter, prawns and pine nuts. We also had an Italian wood fire pizza on Lygon Street followed by dessert at Brunetti. And for breakfast we stopped at a few tiny cafes hidden in little laneways.
The standout for me was breakfast at Cumulus Inc. The place was jam packed with people waiting for seats so we ended up sitting at the bar. I ordered the Turkish baked eggs, spiced tomato, dukkah and labne served in a small skillet. Loved the skillet! Really yummy food and coffee and the place had a cool vibe.
Melbourne, I hope to see you again soon. For now, back to work.
