Melbourne Winter Exploration – Day 4

Premises, 202 Bellair Street, Kensington
Breakfast at The Premises, one of our absolute favourite places. We had poached eggs that were topped with a really spicy Dukkah on top and some Tahini cream at the side. It was absolutely beautifully presented and tasted fantastic!

By the way, the sticky Chai tea at The Premises tastes like heaven. A real treat for your body and soul!

Roti Road, 189-193 Barkly Street, Footscray
Searching for somewhere to have Yum Cha, we turned to the online Urban List Melbourne. After reviewing a few places, and being out on the west side of the city visiting somebody, we went to Footscray to try Yummie Hong Kong Dim Sum. On arrival we had trouble finding it – actually because the place is now called Roti Road. Overall it was a disappointing lunch. I think the highlight was in fact the roti and dipping sauce, suggesting that the transition from a Yum Cha restaurant has been made to more of a Malaysian restaurant. In the end, after lunch, we went down the road and bought some prawn rolls from a nice Vietnamese restaurant.

Dainty Sichuan Noodle Express, 287 Lonsdale Street, Melbourne
Needing a good spicy noodle fix, we headed to Dainty Sichuan Noodle Express (Flickr) at the Emporium Melbourne. We opted for two different types of noodles: Sichuan cold noodle and Spicy green-bean jelly noodle. If you are looking for a quick, easy and economical noodle fix then we highly recommend this place. We will return!

N2 Extreme Gelato, 18 Sutherland Street, Melbourne 
On a cold windy wet Melbourne night, we still went out looking for Gelato. We sort out the well known N2 Extreme Gelato Melbourne, A funky, steamy science lab sort of place. We lined up in a small lane way of Melbourne along with another six or seven people who wanted to get Gelato as well. We opted for two different flavours one with Mango Sorbet and the other with Matcha Madness. N2 didn’t fail to deliver on the promise of an outstanding Gelato with really innovative flavours. Lots of fun to be had at this place.

Oaks on William, 350 William St, Melbourne
We stayed at Oaks on William for this trip. The room is fairly basic: concrete ceiling a little bit on the cool side and the air conditioning is fairly slow to respond. Carpets are a little bit dirty and not perfectly clean. Comfortable bed, quite good television and bathroom is adequate. The service you would say is nothing that is wrong with it but nothing that is outstanding. More noise than desired coming from people slamming the doors in the corridor. The photos below were found online.
