Here we are on a 6.40am flight to Melbourne!
Started off with Macca’s breakfast near our hotel
Then we went exploring and came across these alleyways with nice cafes and shops
At a tram stop on Collins St, on our way to St Kilda. The day was pretty cold and windy.
One of the stores we went into. It had a lot of interesting ethnic things.
Another store we came across after getting off at the wrong tram stop. It sold vintage and retro clothing.
Back to the city, on Bourke St, which seems like the equivalent to Pitt St in Sydney, we saw this man acting like a statue.
The entrance to The Pancake Parlour where we had lunch
|Mexican Chicken Crepes $24.80; Sauteed chicken with mild chilli and classic Mexican ingredients rolled in crepes. Served with shredded lettuce and our home style taco sauce, “hot” jalapeno peppers and sour cream on the side.|
|Tabriz $19.90; Delicate French crepes rolled around ground beef cooked in red wine with herbs, bacons, onions, mushrooms, tomatoes and other delights served with a side salad.|
The Tabriz is supposedly world famous, yet did not quite meet that standard. It was still nice, but a bit salty.
|Lemonade $3.90; and freshly squeezed Orange Juice $4.90|
|Alice In Wonderland $14.20; Two buttermilk pancakes topped with ice-cream, lashings of home-made hot chocolate fudge sprinkled with hundreds and thousands.|
To pay them a visit, the one we went to:
The Pancake Parlour Restaurant
Bourke Street Mall, Melbourne.
(Down the escalators, between
Sportsgirl & Jetty Surf)
Phone: (03) 9654 1893
Open 7am every day
Sunday - Thursday til 10pm
Friday & Saturday til midnight
After lunch, we wandered around some more. Inside Alannah Hill.
There are a lot of graffiti on the walls around Melbourne
It had about six levels, with clothing, resturant, cafe, and the best of all - the rooftop bar!
I guess the neverending stairs were worth the view !
These pictures cannot justify just HOW NICE it is up there but highly recommended. It had a nice tahiti like feel with neon lights and chill out music!
Oh, the place is called Cookie by the way. We had it down for one of the places to visit yet came across it randomly rather than setting out to find it, so can’t really remember the address. But definitely worth a visit!
