Forget dogs; spaghetti is truly man’s best friend. Here are 19 easy ways to make it.
Choc-chip buttermilk pancakes. Made it from this recipe. I quickly searched for a pancake recipe just for two since most cater for 4 or 6 and this was the first to come up. And they were absolutely scrumptious. My tummy is happily content.
Ever tried pandan coconut jelly? It’s a traditional dessert that all Vietnamese mothers know the secret of. Unlike western desserts that usually involve ice cream and pastry, Vietnamese people tend to have either fruit, jelly or sweet warm dishes that somehow involve coconut milk.
Nieuw Amsterdam is the “nieuw” kid on the block showcasing some good American tucker for the Melbourne masses. We had a Nieuw Reuben sandwich, grits fritters with sweet corn and a tray of pork meat with salad. The meat was deliciously tender and perfectly cooked and that grits fritters put a sweet twist on your regular corn fritter. I recommend it for some good food but I did find the service to be conflicting, a rather pushy waitress (I assume the front of house manager) wanted us to order within the half about and on the other hand, we also had pleasant friendly waiter who addressed our every concern. Nevertheless, I would come back to taste that tender meat again. Oh and the popping candy berry split! I was surprised how good this was!
My birthday was today and it was incredible. I really couldn’t ask for more. This was all I wanted, good food and good company. I didn’t take the photos but on top of this we had 2-3 different cakes from Burch and Purchese, LuxBite and Adriano Zumbo, AND cupcakes from Paolo’s. I needed to take mini-breaks in between all the food but honestly, I just kept on thinking, this has by far been the best birthday I’ve had. It’s just, my friends don’t know how grateful I am cause I don’t really show it and I’m quite a consistent happy-go-lucky kind of person, but I was just crying tears inside when I saw how everything just looked.
Nothing short of amazing.
