In Queen Victoria Markets ... What a better way to start the day, eating German Sausage for Breakfast hahahh..
Yamato Japanese Restaurant, a small Japanese restaurant tucked away in the lanes of Chinatown Melbourne .. Corrs Lane, a lane with only a few restaurants including an Indian restaurant, a chinese restaurant, a bar and nothing much basically ... Wasn't going to eat here as we had another Japanese restaurant in mind, but when after having the troubles of walking around at night and trying to find it, we found out that it was also in an alleyway and had heavy black steel door which blended its colour with the walls as well .. and another thing, it was fully booked ... So, we ended up going back to Chinatown and trying it out .. Even if we had to wait due to the place being packed as well ..
The photo above is an Arancini Ball with Tuna filling ...
Mambo Italia in QV Square in Melbourne .. Pizzas and Pasta shop in Urban Market ... Was abit hungry so some of my friends and I were like trying to find snacks to eat, then I came across these big Arancini Balls which I thought were just big croquettes ...

I did see a 'Dome Coffees" in Brisbane, however I haven't given it a try .. so maybe one day I will... Compare it to the one in Indonesia ... So this top photo is Caesar Salad with Salmon ... The portion was just enough I think, it wasn't too much or too little .. maybe a little bit more dressing would have been nice .. But i like the mixture of raw salmon, lettuce, olives, croutons and bacon .. maybe it's because I like vegetables and I like sashimi ... hahahh ... cheese is also in it, as no salad would be complete without its cheese ..
From what I remember, this was an Ice Lemon Tea .. Ice Lemon Teas in Asia are truly the best ... oh, and at the corner of the photo, you can see like a glimpse of Indonesian snacks .. =) handmade and got given to me, but sadly it was finished before I could bring it home =( so sad ...
I forgot the name of this sushi .. but all I know that the outer layer was deep fried .. the nori (seaweed) was deepfried with breadcrumbs .. the inside is colourful XP

This ought to be my favourite out of all of the sushi I ate during my visit in Hachi Hachi Bistro this time .. sadly I forgot the name .. but what I know is that they deep fried the sushi .. so the inside is like normal sushi just the outer layer is fried ..

International Cakes down at Lonsdale St is not something you ought to miss ... you should go in and just have a look .. even just having a little peep will make you go and at least try something .. hahah.. i mean, i was with a few friends who just came from Brisbane and was waiting for more people coming coz they were on different flights .. and we ended up coming here, but at the same time, we were gonna have lunch after... so we couldn't eat as much as we wanted to .. so we just tried two cakes ..

Walking around yet again through Melbourne CBD .. taking photoes and sightseeing... I didn't know where to eat... I first actually went to a Korean restaurant but then changed my mind and suddenly missed home food.. And so, I left the restaurant and walked around again ... and then somehow my feet dragged me to QV Square..And this was where I saw "Old Town Kopitiam Mamak" .. An Authentic Malaysian Cuisine .. And even though I am not Malaysian ... But my Indonesian roots has some kind of connection with Malaysian food .. And South East Asians hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm the food is to die for XP ..
Down in Swanston St in Melbourne, I saw a cute looking Japanese Restaurant called 'Yoyogi' .. It was already 9pm and my belly was already grumbling and yelling asking me to feed it .. So as I walked around Melbourne, I was thinking of what food I should eat .. and what I felt like eating .. First I thought of something Italian, but then came across this Japanese restaurant and thought, Why not give it a try?
I ordered the Nabeyaki Udon .. It has snow peas, half-boiled egg which is definitely my favourite, shallots~~ And on the side, it was prawn tempura, fish tempura and vegetable tempura which was pumpkin and from what I remember was either zucchini or something like that ...

Lygon St Baby .. The street filled with Italian wonders and delicious food smell .. Busy throughout the day and busy throughout the night .. I walked from one end of Lygon St to the other end, and again but on the opposite side of the street ... It was lunch time and I told myself to definitely stop by somewhere and try one of these Italian restaurants .. There were a few choices in my mind but this cafe caught my eye, due to the fact they had Ferrari posters everywhere and a real Ferrari on their ceiling ... So why not? I like F1 .. why not try it anyway ..?

The Cube Hot Pot is in Sunnybank.. just at the back of Sunnybank Plaza .. where Sunnybank Oriental, The Little Cube, Vietnam Corner, Lai Lai Restaurant and other ones are .. and it's got the carpark infront of it .. but it also has a pathway that leads it through the pathway next to the main road ... anyway ... Went here for a friend's birthday dinner shindig thing ... and we ordered the two different types of hot pot soup base incase not everyone could stand the hotness .. but it wasn't as expensive as I thought it would be ... And choosing the hotpot and the food we wanted was pretty alright as well .. but the choosing part seemed like a checklist.. because the menu was basically all the different food we could pick and we would write how many portions we wanted ... Price of each different ingredients was just around $2-$4ish or something .. so it wasn't too bad ...
I didn't realise that there actually was a German restaurant in Brisbane.. but I finally found it... Came here the other night with a few friends of mine and it was full .. First time was a fail due to one of my friend wearing thongs on the night we came, so we ended up going somewhere else for dinner, but the second time, this time, it was good ... was abit hard to find a seat though but we managed and finally found a table for the four of us ..
Pho Vietnamese Noodles .. Combination noodles with everything in it ... i think i usually get everything except pig's blood and sausage~`kihihihhh.... bean sprouts... mint.... hoisin sauce.. lemon... oh you make me go all noodley~~~
Polonia, is a Polish Club over at Milton and has a Polish restaurant and a friend of mine recommended to go there, so we went as a group.. The place as a first impression, I didn't think it was a restaurant feeling as it was just a normal building at the front.. but we did come at night, so it was dark everywhere.. However, the inside was just average, just wooden seats and tables everywhere and there was a cupboard full of polish stuff in it..
