Ahead of our trip, we started putting together a list of all our desired food spots in the Melbourne area. Of course, while many places would be fun and new, we’d also have many old favorites that we had to revisit, such as Lamb on Chapel, Shandong Mama, and Phuoc Thanh and Bun Bun Bakery for banh mi. After we compiled both our lists together, we realized that the list was quite… long, but no surprise. As of today, there are over 70 places pinned on a shared Google Map in the Melbourne area, and so we’d really just have to wing it to see where we’d actually go. And of course, we’d also stumble upon delicious spots by chance (like Che, a Vietnamese dessert spot that makes all their own sweets from scratch, on Lonsdale Street while in the CBD)!, so we’d have to fit these places in, too!
I shared the list with Chris’s brother, who remarked, “You have just over 2 weeks in Melbourne. How are you going to get to all these places?!” Of course we wouldn’t, but hey, here’s to hoping to covering as much ground as possible.
Today, Pookster enjoyed her first kouign amann at one of the most popular bakeries in all of Melbourne – Lune Croissanterie. What a glorious life she leads!
