Dawson (Invited)

Dawson is the perfect place to go brunch with a large group of people cause they got plenty of space. It's also perfect for strollers and kids, they have kids menu and high chair. I went in on a Friday morning, bringing my husband, baby and my cousin who just arrived from Indonesia. She wanted to try the authentic Melbourne brunch.


Heart of Hall (Invited)

We paid a visit to Heart of Hall on a heavily, rainy morning. I was so curious to try this place because I occasionally take a cheeky little uber to work from Newport Station! So excited to finally order something in here!


Tella Ball Dessert Bar (Invited)

Tella Ball Dessert Bar just arrived in Melbourne, currently they have four store in New South Wales and one in Queensland. Welcome to the sweetest place on earth! That's what they said on their website. They sell various desserts starting with gelato, pancakes, crepes but they are famous for their tella balls - brioche donut ball filled with various flavours and also served in many different dessert dishes such as shakes, sliders and more.


Harvest Blend (Invited)

Harvest Blend is where I go for breakfast on Sunday morning before I go to church. It's a medium size cafe with several table outdoor but most of them inside with an option of sofa or regular cafe chair. It's quite spacey to fit stroller and they do have kids meal, and also high chair. So it's safe to say they are kids friendly, they even have crayons and paper to draw on,


Hwkr - Khao by Rice Paper Scissor

Khao by Rice Paper Scissor pops up at Hwkr and arguably is one of the best there, at least that's what my friend said. It's not a secret that I love Rice Paper Scissor, so does my husband. He went straight for it and asked me to order the duck.

Roasted Shanghai Duck comes with warm jasmine rice. To start of, it comes in generous size but the rice was to dry for my liking. Duck was seasoned with burnt anise and star anise sauce which was pretty good. It's a standard duck dish.

Hwkr - Chanteen by Diana Chan

Chanteen by Diana Chan is one of the place at the newly opened Hwkr that I really want to try, cause this would be my first time eating the famous Diana Chan food and see her in person. Since, everyone said she is always there.

Cause of her Asian Malaysian heritage I decided to order her Char Kway Teow ($15) which comes in a very generous portion, much more than what I prepare for. It was quite good, with prawns, chilli and lap cheong but somehow I needed more punch to it, more spices.

But still winning MasterChef Australia is a big thing, especially for an Asian woman. For that, I'm so proud and embrace her as a fellow Asian woman. Next time, I'll try the other dishes. I want her lobster roll and crispy pork belly.
