If you’re looking for the best macarons in Melbourne, this is where you’ll find them! I’ve tried Pierre Herme back when I was in Paris and I’d have to say that the quality of the macarons here are comparable to those of Pierre Herme’s!

Sweetness and texture is always consistent every single time I take a bite into these little babies. One year later and it is still exactly like how I remembered them to be.

IMO, Chez Dre is one of the top brunch spots in Melbourne. They are always consistent with the quality of their food. Also, pretty and delicious desserts to satisfy that sweet tooth craving after a good brunch! Their menu changes quite frequently though. Each time I’ve visited this place, there has always been a change of menu. How I wish that they were still serving  their Jalapeno corn bread!

The vegie breakfast platter(with added smoked salmon) was huge! After being accustomed to Malaysian portions, I was finding it rather difficult to finish this platter myself! The steak and bacon sandwich was mouth watering and drool worthy!

Be sure to try the chocolate tart before you leave this place. It is the best dessert in the house!

Though I’ve known Joseph for almost three years and after all the ups and downs we’ve been through, we’ve been together for almost two years! So we decided to have a little dinner date to celebrate that occasion at a steakhouse (cause he loveeees steaks! and where better to have steak than in Australia right?). Alfred told me about Steer after he came back from Melbourne, and he’s all like “you have got to try this place out, they serve the best steaks ever!”

what he said turned out to be true!

We couldn’t stop raving about the food and Joseph has just been a little birdy telling everyone that he met along the way that they have got to head to Steer.

Before you get in a rush to order, the waiter will first present you with the different types of beef and the cuts of the day.

The only thing that was short of perfect were the oysters, which weren’t really the best. but everything else, yum~

I wanted something light and refreshing as a starter so I opted for the Scallop ceviche whereas the carnivore wanted something meaty and went for the David Blackmore’s (the same beef that Rockpool uses for their wagyu) wagyu tataki instead. Both starters were great but the one that made the impression was the wagyu tataki that just melts in your mouth!!!

Since I’m not a heavy eater, we opted for the 450g Delmonico F1 Wagyu cut. Ranked third from the menu according to its richness. Man, the steak was perfectly cooked with just the right amount of marbling to satisfy the both of us!

And as a bonus, we got herb-crusted bone marrows on our dinner plates!

I wished we had enough stomach space to have a taste of their homemade reese’s peanut butter cups but we were so stuffed that the walk to the train station was proving to be rather difficult.

It’s my third day here in Melbourne! Been eating (not as much as I wanted to) and meeting up with friends! It feels so good to bump into many familiar faces on the streets too. Ah Melbourne, how I’ve missed you so!
