Shortstop Donuts

no actually don’t stop…Melbourne, CBD

Cool little store in quiet street with seats outside, not so much inside. Donuts are made on site fresh with kitchen visible out in the so that people can watch. Simple and clean setup. Donuts are quite nice as well. I had the Creme brulee and coconut custard filled donuts. I liked the custard filled one more as I love custard. I wouldn’t say they are the best ones I have ever had (top ones are in USA….). Definitely try them out for donut lovers… they are one of the top ones in Australia I reckon.

Hardware Societe

Melbourne CBD

Woke up one morning and decided to check out the hype in Hardware Societe. The street has a lot of legit cafes… like there are lines in every single cafe – 45 minutes wait on average… crazy!!! We went around 11am and the wait was 45 minutes for a table of 4.

First impression when walking in was the bright wallpapers which gives it a morning looking vibe… pretty colourful too. I ordered the baked eggs DEUX and cold drip (first timer…not a coffee drinker..sorry). When the cold drip came out it was setup pretty nicely. Came with syrup and milk. Picture below. I see why people drink this stuff… it was very smooth… like smoovveeee…

Now to the baked eggs… its frickin hot…. but good hot! I had chorizo, baked eggs, potatoes and it was delicious! My first time trying baked eggs… and it did not disappoint. (I assume they just put the ingredients in an oven pot and shove it in the oven?? Smart..gotta try this stuff at home) The aoli, peppers, eggs and chorizo balanced really well. The best part of the dish I think are the toasted almonds! I did not realise how amazing breakfast would be with it… crazy! When you take a spoonful of the dish with an almond in it….BOOM!! The flavour of the almond bursts in your mouth and now you will be hunting to get an almond in every bite…no joke..

Verdict? Worth the wait, not too pricey and quick service. So good…

Cookie….

no not the monster…. Melbourne CBD

So…. we went to a popular restaurant at around 5.30pm one night and the wait for it was 2 and a half hours long for a table of 5. Since we were hungry and need a quick feed, we rocked up at Cookie. Pretty cool as it is not out in the open where people can see the restaurant from the outside, therefore I assume not a lot of people know about this place as it was not booked out. However I was told that people would flood in at around 7nish.. and the waitress was not wrong!

So we ordered:

  • Drunken noodles – they do not frickin mess with the chilli in this one. Spicy as heck.. but man it was a real good kick (if you like spicy). Just be ready with the water … or milk.
  • Green beans with fish sauce – nothing too special with this dish, we just wanted some vegetables as we ordered a tonne of meat! Don’t be surprised if there are only 2 pieces of fish on the dish, as it is mainly ‘fish sauce’.
  • Pork platter – this dish was quite interesting. We realised after eating the platter that we were supposed to wrap the meat with the lettuce and add the sauce inside it.. just like a wrap. Crackling pork and the sausage pork was nice. The sauce(s) again were spicy and had a good kick. Pork lovers will enjoy this dish. Enough to share with 4 people I reckon, also comes with sticky rice!
  • Whole fried chicken – really good fried chicken! The spice was perfect, not too salty. And man there were a lot of chicken! So good! I think this was my favourite dish. Must order if you have a group of boys.. and add some rice as we had 4 of the following dishes and it was filling!

Would defs come back as the service was awesome, vibe was awesome, music was awesome, food was awesome (came out quickly too)… the waitress was also heaps nice to me while I was ordering!! People may not like the fact that you have to go to the bar to order though… however I had no issue with it.

Jordan Eclipse

My all time favourite sneakers… Jordan Eclipse.. it is so freaking comfortable! It fits like a sock, so snug and soft. Every step is like stepping on clouds. .. better than adidas ultraboost in my opinion. Looks slick and fits any outfit. Can walk on it for long hours.. let’s just say all day erryday! Jordan everyday sneakers has stepped up big time to compete with roshes and ultraboost.
