Fortnight+Windowsill Pies

After my consultants recommendation of the sweet pies ( Windowsill Pies) and xqs recommendation of the savory section (Fortnight) we decided to make our way here since I thought it was near his work place.. Was almost here for dessert the same night ty was here!

Extremely whimsical place with a small but great home cooked savouries.

Battered eggplant so long it looked like fish and chips! Excellent with the salsa.
Grilled cheese sandwich with an extremely nutty bread. Also came with a yummy salsa.

Steak sandwich came with a pudding kind of bread - chewy and sweet and went well with the caramelised  onions and meat.

We chose camp symmetry ( has white chocolate, cookie crumble, truffle and raisins) and smores ( chocolate and his favorite coffee scented marshmallow) to end it off. Mm! This was much better than the choc peppermint pie I had a Symmetry :)

Last meal before I'm off to aus :)

Fordham and Grand

Some quick shopping to pick up my hats at Haji lane and to check out the merchandise at the new Robinsons at Heeren before heading to this very discrete Fordham and grand at Craig road. ( note to self: need to try Selfish gene and Binomio soon !) Quiet, intimate and if I may say, a little forbidding. Not many customers but still, our orders got mixed up!!
Artichoke, eggplant and mushroom 
Greenpea risotto - very unlike us to have something vegetarian !
Scallops and jumbo crab 饺子- gone in a bite

More plans and rocking music( courtesy of 3 crowns) at Craft bakery at holland village where we had the 3 inch sin Baileys cake. Kept looking at the baileys tart :p

Melbourne!! Stereosonic festival !!
