Melbourne: Day 9 - 11

Blog confession - day 9 I took no photos but we did do some more hair dying and I had the most amazing faux-chicken wrap of my life, actually it was the only thing I ate twice in my visit, which is impressive since my list of things I wanted to eat outweighed the days and meals I had available :p 


Day 10 we walked into the city, I got new lipstick (photo evidence below) and we ate steamed buns at Wonder Bao






We had coffee at A Little Bird Told Me (6.5/10 without sugar, 8/10 with) and checked out some parks for a secret photo project, which I tell you guys about when I can :)










Isn't that playground amazing, giraffe swings and a dragon slide!




That night we tried going to Smith and Daughters, a famed vegan restaurants in Melbourne but they were booked out so we headed next door to Ahari who were very accomodating and served me up a delicious bowl of soba noodles :)

And finally day 11, which included lots of wandering and exploring + a table that night at Smith and Daughters - huzzah!











Dinner at Smith & Daughters started with some tuna and pea croquettes receiving a 9/10 - no photo, consumed too quickly, followed by that blood red sausage above. I should point out this joint is all about those faux meats and also that I never eaten blood sausage before, so I have no idea how authentic the taste was but I gave it a low 5/10. I have a feeling I may of given the authentic thing a low-ish rating too.


We went to dinner with Emaya's roomie Stu who oddly enough ordered the stew above. I gave it 6/10 it wasn't bad just perhaps a little boring.


Emaya ordered the best main, a colourful Tortilla bowl which I gave an 8/10


And I ordered prawns because I really miss prawns! these were pretty good too, getting a 7.9//10



On the way home we spied a sneaky sticker from Smith & Daughters stuck on a Chinese food window - always fond of a little street activism :)

I wanted to also apologies to anyone who has ever left a blog comment and it never showed up.  I think the blogger commenting system is whack, I know when I go to leave comments on other blogs, I always make sure I save what I've written before hitting submit because 9/10 it eats my comment and I have to put it in again - grrrrr.  Thank-you for leaving comments, thank-you for trying to leave comments and thank-you for just reading my posts :) :).  Also if you have a suggestion to stop this commenting madness, I'm all ears!

    1. It's been super fun being blonde! Having so many vego/vegan choices makes life so much easier. Where I live unfortunately isn't that progressive in terms of alternative foods so I'm back to doing most of my cooking at home again - lucky I love cooking though :)

  8. I'm so excited to see you again in a playground!!! :) Do I sound silly? hahahha, It really got me very happy to see you in such a (super!) cool one after your playgrounds photo project. You're so cute with your beanie matching the lipstick! Oh! and I also always copy first the comments before hitting publish (in all blogs), too many comments missed to learn a lesson...
