Cumulus Inc

Melbourne, CBD


I initially thought the cafe was upstairs and later found out after going up it was the bar.. haha! The cafe by day and restaurant by night had an open floor with all the tables in the middle. Plain and simple vibe.

It was quite busy when we arrived. Waitress that served us was quite nice. I had the Shaksouka which was baked eggs with roasted peppers and shanklish… no idea what that is but the the dish pretty much tasted like eggs, tomato and cheese. Melbourne love their baked eggs. I think the dish was OK. Wouldn’t say it was the best egg dish that I ever had. CAUTION – the pan is freaking hot! I burnt my arm accidentally leaning on it. ūüė¶ I also had a coffee – now… I am not a coffee drinker nor do I critique coffee but man when I drank it was so smooth and … nice… all I can say is that it was good! And last but not least I ordered a Canele which was a burnt caramel mini muffin¬†dessert. Really good! Must order if you can… sticky and chewy caramel coating around the small looking muffin and moist in the inside. Just perfect.

I have to say it was quite pricey. That is the only downside. I hear this place is known for its dinner though. I shall come back next time and check it out!

Waffle on… yo

Melbourne, CBD

Waffles waffles waffles… the best type of food ever created… thank you waffle inventor! Cool little place near a train station around flinders. It can look like a dodgy place however we all know to never judge its food from the looks.

I tried the nutella waffle and man it was good. Simple and fresh. The waffle was hot, doughy and crunchy with melted nutella drizzled. I would definitely come back and try some other flavours. Til next time!

If you are around area check them out. It won’t break your bank and you can eat it on the go!

Nike Air Trainer 2 Tan

I like the colour tan… so I bought a pair of that colour… and voi la! Sweet shoe…looks dope with any blue outfit. The only bad thing about the shoe is the comfort and weight…It is heavy and hard to break into. But hey, bought them for half price on special.. $100. Ain’t complaining.

Bowery To Williamsburg

Melbourne, CBD

1st cafe visit in Melbourne and I personally think it was the best one! Small cafe in a quiet laneway but had the New York-ish vibe… pretty sure they’re trying to get a subway/train station look.. When you arrive you can smell the aroma of all the food just hitting your face.. amazing.. you can smell the bacon, smoked meat and fried eggs.

We got there quite late around 11 am and surprisingly quiet… nek minute… packed… I guess we came at the right time!

The waiters were heaps nice and helpful…. food smells and sounds amazing… not too pricey either.

I ordered a coffee and the chicken waffles… coffee was standard however it came with a kiss chocolate and the chicken and waffles was AMAZING!!!! The chicken was soft in the inside, crunchy skin on the outside and not too salty or dry…it tasted fresh and spices was just right! The waffles was doughy, ¬†smooth and a little crunchy on the outside…Maple syrup drizzled on the dish had the right amount, the right sweetness and did not make the waffles or chicken soggy. PERFECTION!! Must try dish.. just do it!

Overall loved the cafe and food! Must go if you are in the city area!

Chin Chin

Melbourne, CBD

I wondered what the fuss is all about at Chin Chin…heard so much about it… is it hype or is it for real? So the first night we were in Melbourne, we arrived at the restaurant around 5.30 PM and the line was¬†already¬†going around the block. CRAY! It went¬†pretty quick however,¬†when we got to the front, we still had to wait for about 2 and a half hours… so guys… be prepared to wait or come early or you can chill at their bar downstairs! Unfortunately we could not wait that long…

So… we went back another day (another$)¬†at around 4.30PM and the wait was wayyy quicker… 30 minutes. The vibe inside the restaurant was busy¬†and loud… one thing they had on point were the song choices.. good food + good music = good times..

For the food we had:

Padseuw – loved it…it was sweet however the noodles were rolled therefore the sweetness was balanced (as the inside of the rolled noodles were not exposed to the sauce). Meat was tender and soft… not too chewy. Just right.


Barramundi apple salad – had to try something different you know what I mean?! Fish had no bones – tick! The apple made it super fresh and complimented the kickin spicy sauce. Never knew that apple, spicy sauce and fish could work.. but it did.


King Salmon – The salmon was pink and wrapped in banana leaf…the aroma of the fish combined¬†with the banana leaf was amazing… you gotta sniff it out! When you unwrap the fish out of the leaf it just melts… so soft and juicy. I wouldn’t say it was the best dish … it was just ok for me… Not the biggest fan of fish … sorry.


Caramelised sticky pork – Sticky, crunchy in the outer layer and soft in the inside… always work well with pork.. great dish and can’t¬†go wrong with this dish.


Coconut sago – favourite dish of the night!!! AMAZING!!! If you love dessert you will love this.. the ice cream and mango sago at the bottom was just perfect!! The coolness of the ice cream and the softness of the mango sago were doing a tango in my mouth.. love it.. I could seriously order 6 of these!!


Palm sugar ice cream with honeycomb – it was good however it wasn’t something special.. just a normal ice cream and honeycomb. Salted caramel was bitter though.. different but not bad.


Thai drink with mint and lychee – such a refreshing drink with the lychee and mint… sow good!


Overall, Chin Chin was not just a hype, it is a legit and an awesome restaurant. I am not the biggest fan of Thai fusion restaurants but this one is definitely one of my favourites! If you are in Melbourne make sure you go here early and eat your heart out! Remember to¬†share dishes! Great service too… hopefully the Sydney restaurant that is opening in Surry Hills 2017 would be just as good!!! #fingerscrossed

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.
