Middle Park Hotel

RNIS was invited by Dimmi to try their burger but paid $7 for their own drink.

Middle Park Hotel is in Middle park which is a suburb between Albert Park and St Kilda. It is a quaint little suburb with the beach nearby. It is on the number 96 route.





I saw that Middle Park had many great reviews on Zomato and I was keen to give their burgers a try.

The pub itself was really busy on a Friday night. This is a good sign that things are going well. They had a few large groups that day.

The other table's Mac and Cheese looked really good but I would have been too full for it.

To start with I got a Little Creatures Pilsner. I have been to the Little Creatures brewery before and enjoyed this Pilsner.

It went well with the Wagyu burger. But that burger was so big that I couldn't finish it and I was full afterward. The wagyu pattie had that nice soft juicy flavor and I enjoyed the egg on top. The brioche bun was a little bit dry though. But I enjoyed the burger though.

And I loved the chips that went with it. It was nicely salted with that chicken salt. It was nicely fried.

Do come by to this pub when you can as the service and the food is great. I would love to try the Mac and Cheese next time I'm here.

The Quarter cafe

This cafe is on Degraves st and it's very popular at lunchtime. And it is also popular with people at dinnertime. I walk past it when I go to the gym.

They serve your normal cafe fare.

The service here is just ok. And it was your standard lunch hour. Most people had meat dishes.


I have been here before for chips and coffee.

Here I tried their farmer's baguette. This is a vegetarian one with pumpkin and halloumi and onions. I couldn't get any of the meat dishes as I'm doing No meat may with Healthyintstudents.

This was a really nice baguette and it was freshly done. Here I loved the halloumi cheese and the pumpkin. They were just gorgeous with the caramelized onion.

Do come by for your baguettes

Rozzi's Italian cafe in Highpoint

Rozzi's is a small little cafe in Highpoint. They have other branches in the city and Chadstone, but Highpoint was closer and I had to get my weight checked that day at the same place.



Here I was in for a vegetarian fix. I had their roast pumpkin wrap with a pumpkin salad. Naturally, I will have more fiber than what to do with. But that's a good thing as recently I found out that not many Australians have enough fiber in their diet.

But the pumpkin salad had a lot of olive oil in there and I could not finish this. But the roasted pumpkin wrap was nice. And the orange juice went well with it. This version from Charlie's was not too sweet.

Service wise they were a little bit abrupt but I guess it's because they had a busy lunchtime. 

Hairy Little Sista

RNIS had a Dimmi voucher and they did not have to pay!

Hairy Little Sista is in Melbourne right where the Tivoli arcade is. Here they are a lovely bar and they are really homely.




The service here is quite lovely and for a rainy Friday afternoon, they were quite steady. Inside the bar was warm and cozy. Outside it was pouring rain.

They have the $18.5 lunch special which includes a sandwich, chips and a drink. Of course being no meat may I went for the vegetarian sandwich which was avocado with corn and tomato salsa. I had it on the organic sourdough which was quite lovely. I really liked the avocado and the fried corn.

But the chips on the other hand although nicely cooked were salty. Too salty.

The house chardonnay worked well with the sandwich.

Do come by to this lovely place in the heart of the city and many thanks for the invite Dimmi.

Dumpling World

Dumpling World is in Collins St where Southern Cross station is. They are mainly a meat-eating place but they also do vegetarian.

Tonight it was not too busy. Here there was one other table with Caucasians.

The bathrooms are out the back and are just ok. The service though was very swift.



I had their beancurd with hot chili sauce and rice. It was $11.80 and was really filling. They also put lots of MSG in there. The rice was quite alright.



But I did like their custard baos though. Here they were not too sweet and they helped offset some of the MSG and really hot sauce.

Do come by this place before you take the train home.
