Dogma and I took a break away from work. We decided on Melbourne as the location for our 1 week holiday. It was a noteworthy trip as we had a balance of everything, dined like the rich and ate like the poor, drove like a local and walked till our muscles tore, strong wind chills and sweaty foreheads, fine chocolates and on-the-rack chocolate bars, and the list goes on. I’m truly grateful to have a wonderful companion along to make this trip fully complete. Here are some pictures of the food we had tried during our 1 week here.
Demona: Look closely, at the right bottom corner, two round looking cakes with a hole in the middle, those are called Kugelholfs. Monarch’s trademark pastries. They tasted excellent, with a spongy cake taste on the outside and on the inside (here’s the best part: thick, sweet, packed with calories) chocolate cream. We bought some mini Kugelholfs back, to give our parents. Not cheap btw. A mini K cost us 6 AUD.
Apollo Bay’s Fish & Chips:
Demona: We drove into Apollo Bay town. Heard so much about their awesome fish and chips. We camped here for the night, bought some fish, calamari and chips as take away, dropped by the nearest supermart and bought a bottle of Watershed’s Chardonnay, and pigged the hell out in the motel room. The second pict showed the Cheddar cheese which we bought from Victoria Market, in Melbourne city. Awfully sinful meal.
Demona: The best calamari I ever hard. Check out the size of the rings. No way you can find one this size back home.
Demona: The smoked salmon pizza. Salmon was good, but we made a mistake. Should have ordered another type of pizza as we had ordered the grilled salmon already.
Demona: Grilled salmon. Check out the chunk. YUMS!
Demona: Finally back in the city. It was a Sunday evening. Thus, most shops were closed. We walked everywhere to look for food within the viscinities of the airport transfer. But nothing interesting…until we stumbled upon… Krispy Kremes! By luck. Gosh. I heard so much about it. Had always wondered how one tiny lil’ donut can drive so many people crazy.
