[ New York tomato: Cnr New & York Streets, Richmond ]
For months I was calling this place New York Apple-for obvious reasons…It wasn’t until I went back for an encore I realised I’d been telling everyone about a mystery location! Oops!
So, a good travel buddy of mine suggested this amazing place nestled in the little streets of Richmond that was the perfect hang over cure! (good food, cosy, and you can wear your dark glasses and still look a little bit ‘last night’ and it’s totally ok!)
Boy was I in for a treat, this place is a cosy little hide out to discuss last night, to have a date, to be alone, to meet like-minded locals and just to enjoy your Sunday late morning nourishing your mind and feeding your soul.
The selection is wide and the choices are many… Sweet or savoury, fresh or fried, big or small… Soo many choices!!!
The first time I went was a bit of a tired blur to be honest, but I do remember the servings were hearty and much like the culinary equivalent of a cuddle! Just what the Dr. ordered right!!!??
The second time I took “miss Dior”, and boy was it as yummy as I remembered!!!
I had something freshish this time- polenta stack:
& Caz ordered ‘make ur own’ – yummy smoked salmon/poached eggs/ avocado!
It was sooo good, there was a lot of purring and silence. Mmmm yummys for our tummys 🙂
We’d been going to turtle for so many a breakfast date, it was always going to be rough to rip that bandaid off, however we has found the perfect substitute to heal that wound….

Ah hoi hoi!
Approximately 2 years ago, I started blogging my food/travel/food+travel adventures, and I’ve rebloged one of the first entries from what feels like a lifetime ago.
I love breakfast (and food) a little to much, and I wonder where this near obsession will lead me to….?! So far, I have had the pleasure and honour of being a lucky little Melbournian vegemite, so most of my adventures have been here.
However, over the years, I have been very fortunate to taste some very interesting dishes from some parts of the world. My adventures have only begun, travel is and will be a part of my life…for life.
So…. please join me walk through some delicious and “tasteful” memories of the past coupla years.
lots of love!! and tastefully yours,
On a recent trip to Vietnam my unintentional travel buddy was plates and plates of delectable nem ran.
Four hours of trekking in Sapa, nem ran for lunch. Another four hours, nem ran for dinner. I loved it. The light and flaky rice paper filled with minced pork and bean sprouts was perfect snacking food while nursing bleeding heels in local’s homes.
Nem ran is the Northern Vietnamese version of a spring roll and can be found at most street stalls and restaurants. I found the street stalls didn’t compare to the homemade offerings I experienced while staying with locals.
