WELCOME TO BURN CITY: AUCTIONS ROOMS + HIMALAYAN SHERPA
day 2; dropped by doncaster westfield to get my eyes quickly checked by my friend – the good thing about also being an optom is that im the ideal patient=P totally thought my vision got worse from these hours and hours sitting in front of my computer at work and home, but my prescription pretty much still hasnt changed – yes! not getting too much blinder ^__^
detoured to chadstone to meet up with my auntie + uncle + clarence; then off to auction rooms in north melbourne! heard a lot about this brunch spot and it did not disappoint. great atmosphere + friendly staff…food was awesome also!:D my chickpea stew thing was bomb:) my cousin commented about ‘all’ the waiters being hipster and having “f**king cool beards” ROFL….definitely will come back to try one of their sweet dishes!:)
love the decor!:)
example of a bearded waiter:D
practising on his new dSLR:)
eileens pork belly omelette with poached eggs:)
my chickpea stew! also with a poached egg:)
clarence’s chorizo + tomato stew:)
beef short rib sandwich!
both cousins are quite big photography enthusiasts; so with every dish presented, 4-5 cameras would appear to take happy snaps, ROFL.
outlet shopping times! trying so hard to not spend; but its a bit hard traversing outlets for 3 hours with your relatives without putting down a bit of cash=/ but i was good! only got a pair of rubi lace up boots for 10 BUCKS! + something from bendon [thankyou for always being on sale;)] – so $30 all up, not bad!
nice weather on the way to DFO:)
lil dirty from walking around in them but such a steal!:D
whole family out for dinner at Himalayan Sherpa on Bridge Rd – nepalese cuisine, surprisingly quite good! was a big fan of the huge bowls of cous cous and saffron rice [i love my carbs…urgh]. more photography ensued.
assorted meat dumplings…GOOD:D
prawns + cous cous…
all of the curries looked the same after a while…all brown ROFL. dunno what this was now..couldv been chicken or lamb…
non stop eating! more to come…
