Cafe Le Miel

Le Miel is a little cafe on Elgin st just a short walk from RMIT. It was here that I met up with the Coffee Enthusiasts group of Melbourne Uni and they have free coffees for their members when they meet. The food is not for free- I had to pay for them.
Here they had all sorts of lovely decorations and you can sit and watch the world go by. Its not like another cafe where they want you to leave straightaway.

They also do breakfasts but I was not hungry. I had breakfast at home. Their breakfasts are huge. The coffee beans are from Proud Mary's hence the awesome coffees.
My mocha here was pretty decent. It was nutty and really strong.
I also had two eye catching little sweets at $3.50 a piece. The sweets were a lemon tart and a cheesecake of some sorts. I love both of them. 
The lemon tart had the right amount of tang to this and was pretty sweet, hence I did not need to add any sugar to this.
The cake was also lovely with the right amount of cream to this. I loved the berries on top.

Many thanks to the guys that organised this. They were right when they said that the coffee is good here.

RMIT volunteer fair

Its fun, free and on right now in the Caf. Come one come all. Many companies there looking for people.


This place is a place tucked away in a new lane called Literature lane. It was opened a few days ago and already it is full of people. I had trouble finding the place because Urbanspoon had said that the place was near the corner of Lt Bourke and Elizabeth. Well they were wrong.... its actually across the road from SAB and RMIT just off Lt Lonsdale st.

This place sells all sorts of Chinese baos and soy milk all for cheap. The most popular were the veggie and pork ones, but I just had lunch so no.

It was just after 2pm when I went so I just ordered dessert buns. The place was still packed with students looking for lunch and their fix of soy milk. I tried the soy milk and I found it a little sour for my liking. But I loved the taro and custard buns.... they were yummy, big and very filling for $3.40 altogether. And not too sweet.

Now RMIT why did you have to put nine new restaurants in SAB, when we can go to this wonderful bao place and get our fill of bao?
If you put nine new restaurants in SAB then the poor bao place might be out of business. RMIT please please don't put nine new places in SAB as we don't need them. What we would like is better student services and a student union in SAB. Oh yeah come to think of it, a computer lab would be nice.

Hey Urbanspoon please update your location to outside State library

I will be back to try their lunch options.

Hello Sailor Vintage Market

Hello Sailor Vintage market is on from time to time in the shot tower square at Melbourne Central. They are on some Fridays and weekends and dates are usually advertised on Melbourne Central's Facebook page.
Most of their items are under $100 and they only sell grily stuff, sorry guys.
But here are some pictures of the last one that I went to

Desi Dhaba and the RMIT mid Semester party

The RMIT Indian club along with Su-Chai Junction put on a party for all of its members free of charge. There was free food and drink served at Desi Dhaba. We were the only table at Desi Dhaba at 4pm and Su Chai mentioned that it was really popular. Our party had lots of people turn up but Desi Dhaba wasn't as popular. We came at 4.30pm.
I wonder why Desi Dhaba got so many bad reviews on Urbanspoon.

The staff didn't do much except to serve the food. Not even to ask about our food. They asked us to move to the back of the restaurant, why?

I normally don't post pictures of the bathrooms but the bathroom was dirty and really stinky. Oh yeah and the locks didn't work.

Everyone got a chai and a snack plate consisting of a samosa (really small and it broke easily), a potato cake thingy which looked really oily and greasy and the onion thingy which I liked. That and the chai which was spicy and not too milky.
The free water tastes urgh and more like tap water.
The next time I get invited I'll only just stick to the chai and avoid the bathrooms and the other things at all costs. Thanks to Su Chai for inviting me, sorry I couldn't be too positive about this place. I hope you understand
