After walking from 200 Collins to 620 Collins, just to find out that Choix Crepes has shut down, I concluded with the shop next door, BluFish. Tuck in a little alley, their fish was actually quite healthy (grilled), fresh and gourmet. Apparently is owned by a fifth generation angler.
Hotpot on Tuesday and Wednesday. I have no idea what the place is called, but in Chinese it starts with the word 'Gold something something'. It is just behind Crown on route 55 by tram. $15 all you can eat steamboat. With free flow of onion pancakes and dumplings and steam buns. It was so good I went back the day after.
Apparently some part of Lygon was burning when I was having grilled eggplant on polenta smothered with neapolitan sauce at Trotters. Yummm....it was followed by the chocolate delight at KoKo Black....even more yum.....
And dinner was among vegetarians and thai pants yogi types at Moroccan Soup Bar. For $16 we got a banquet of dips, chickpea bake, cous cous and some kind of pilaf with grilled eggplant and almonds. And then mint tea and baklava. So full....could hardly move......It was quite a unique dining experience. I got there at 6pm, when it opened, and the room was already packed. People were thronging in with tupperware trying to get some takeaway. All the menu is verbal and the vibe really made you feel like you are Morocco.
