Everytime I have a bit of time or when I am feeling the homesickness most, I nip back to Melbourne even though it means close to 7 hours driving each way. (Can’t fly, expensive plus it’d still be 2.5 hours drive each way + the flying)
Recently I had such a bout of homesickness which promptly saw me back in Melbourne, and what better to do in Melbourne than to eat and make merry with friends? My only gripe with such flying trips is that it is too short to ever meet up with anybody and plan anything big. I’m really only in Melbourne for one full day. *sadface*
I hope to do reviews on these places soon, but meanwhile, do enjoy the photos that my iphone could muster up. I visited Dahon Tea and Steer Bar and Grill over the weekend, and much eating was done!
Dahon Tea was amazing. Kudos to Cherrie and her team, it was such a lovely place. The decor was amazing, the food was outstanding and I didn’t want to leave. I wanted to try every single tea on her menu.
Then it was to Steer for dinner. Steer never disappoints, the standards of the steaks are right up there and the melt-in-your-mouth-factor was through the roof that night.
Have to say though, my first visit to Steer was quite unmemorable, but the subsequent trips were sublime. I’m so glad I gave them another go!
And that was my quick trip to Melbourne. Sigh. I did say it was quick. *sadface*
Speaking of which, I’ll be heading to Taiwan for the first time ever in December!! I can’t wait eeeeee! If you have any must-eat, must-do recommendations for Taipei and its surrounds, please let me know!
