Having a large extended family means celebrating lots of birthdays therefore group dinners with great company. We celebrate a triple birthday this evening at The Coffee Warehouse Cafe & Deli in Homebush.
In between all the reservations for breakfast, lunch and dinner there had to be several pitt stops made for some snacks. In this case, sweet snacks. I of course already have my list of places jotted down before we even land in the state.
Everyone has their local spots to eat out at. I’m quite fortunate enough to live very close to a couple of suburbs that has on offer a variety of cuisines. One that has been expanding right before my eyes is Canley Heights. With Holy Basil, Chi Chi, Twelve Spices and Noggi opening up/renovated, the suburb has become more known and talked about. Just as it should.
There’s been a little bit of an obsession with baos and steamed buns lately, so my short trip to Melbourne had to include the much talked about Wonderbao. I first heard about it from these lovely ladies late last year who are local Melbourne bloggers and it’s been on my to-go list ever since.
This is my 3rd visit to LA since 2005 and I fall in love the city more and more each time. This trip we found ourselves doing things we’d normally wouldn’t/never be able to do.
We head towards the Crown Casino and stroll along the Southbank Promenade. It’s been 3 years since my last visit and it was amazing to see all the restaurants that are now operating. From high end restaurants, to casual dining to cafes – it caters for a range of diners. The boy opts for The Merrywell for dinner as the American inspired menu wins him over.
