Coming soon: Melbourne eating adventures

Excitement! Weight gain! 
I've just spent 3.5 days on a tour of Melbourne's fabulous eateries du jour!

Yes, I've just returned from a couple of days on a personal eating and shopping trip of the lovely southern capital of Melbourne.  It lived up to its reputation as a centre par excellence when it comes to good restaurants and top-class shopping.  Not that I shopped that much, mainly window-shopping, though I bought a Gordon Ramsay cookbook on sale, and a couple of pairs of owl socks (socks for making owls, that is).

I also showed immense self-restraint after eating at some popular restaurants and cafes.  I'll post about them in more detail soon, after sorting through the photos and memories. 

Here is where I ate:
Day 1: Hutong Dumpling Bar, Movida Next Door
Day 2: Cumulus Inc, Coda
Day 3: Chadstone Food Court (indifferent raisin toast), Shoya
Day 4: The Hardware Societe

I was also a frequent visitor to Brioche in Queen Street, a wonderful source of mid-afternoon baked snacks.

Please stay tuned for more, coming soon!
