Good Food

The boyf won tickets for Taste of Melbourne last week. I was expecting I would get bored after the initial (very overpriced) dishes from the restaurant stalls, but it wasn’t too bad.

I ended up being there for 2 hours (the boyf was there for nearly four – I had to repair to the adjacent Melbourne Museum and revive myself by looking at Ordician fossils and the odd dinosaur skeleton)

When he emerged, we went on to Brunswick Street and found a great new bar with food that was just as good as what we had had at Taste of Melbourne, but waaaaay cheaper ($2 per tapas, not $8 to $12) – it was almost like being in Donostia-San Sebastian.
