busy! but EXCITING busy. A couple of EXCELLENT trips to the theatre this week. I have my flatmate from London in town so there has a been a wee bit of touristy thangs with her.
Coffee... All my usual haunts my sister says (port melbourne), espresso hub (city), miss marmalade (brunswick), acoustica (brunswick) , journal (city), dukes coffee (prahran). There's a good spread of suburbs there so if you're ever in need of great coffee now you know where to go. I'm also thinking about reprising Lisa Dempsters conversation about being charged extra for soy milk. I will begin reporting next week!
Food.. purple peanuts (still amazing), the loving hut ($8 sweetnsour "pork" special COMPLETELY AMAZING I DONT KNOW WHY PEOPLE DONT LIKE IT!), bimbos (seems like toppings are permanently shit why do I keep going back?) and roof top bar (which I hadnt been to in about 3 years - was a lovely Sunday afternoon in the sun).
Tom Phat report: prematurely excited. Service went back to being lazy and contemptuous. Food was ok though.
CHECK THIS OUT.. I'm always going on about the duopoly in my cooking classes and how it effects how we see fruit and vegies. There is over 7,500 different kinds of APPLES (not sure how many are edible) and yet most people have probably only eaten 4 or 5. Welcome to THE ANTIQUE APPLE FESTIVAL where you can go and try ANTIQUE apple varities. I'm seriously thinking about going to this, anyone else? Thanks Katie for the link!
ALSO coming up this Sunday - vegan bake off at Radical Grocery! this is where I get to THROW DOWN and get COMPETITIVE. I'm crazy, insanely competitive but I also don't consider myself to be a good baker so... who knows! I've got an idea for 2 dishes so lets see! Hope to see you there, wear your eating pants!
the wild duck
GO AND SEE IT IT IS COMPLETELY AMAZING ONE OF THE BEST THINGS IVE SEEN IN AGES YOU WILL LOVE IT.
I've already booked my mintie pass but I keep looking at others and wishing I was going to see those too. Really don't think I'll have time but perhaps I'll squeeze in a few single session. yay! Let me know if you're going to anything would love to have a queer vegan film buffs meet up!
