WIAW Eating Out in Australia

4 Sep

Eating out in Melbourne and the surrounding area is pretty pricey. That’s why I always try to make sure the few times I do eat out are absolutely fabulous and so far they have been!

The first real meal I ate out obviously took place at the greatest restaurant in the Melbourne Area…The Vegie Bar. Before coming to Australia I had heard raving reviews about this place so I knew I needed to get there ASAP. A low-key friday night this past weekend was the perfect opportunity.

After looking at the menu for days.

I still couldn’t decide what to order first.

Everything looks amazing.

I couldn’t even decide what to order to drink.

Kombucha?

Ginger Beer?

Sangria?

Fresh Juice?

I finally choose a fresh juice because I haven’t had a fresh juice in a while and was craving one. I went with the Super Juice which was combination of freshly squeezed spinach, beetroot, carrot, and cucumber! I was definitely impressed.

After that tough decision, I looked over the menu another 100 or more times going back and forth between options.

Tempeh Burger?

Soba Noodle Salad?

Raw Tacos?

Raw Living Stack?

It was a touch choice.

But I finally ended up going for the Raw Living Stack. The description on the menu states “layers of thinly sliced tomato, zucchini and squash, grated carrot, baby spinach, avocado, basil pesto, and cashew ricotta. All stacked on a marinated mushroom and finished with dehydrated herbed tomato, raw parmesan, and kale chip.

Heaven.

You can’t really go to the Vegie Bar and not get dessert. Obviously dessert was not an option. The choices all looked fabulous but this time the decision wasn’t too hard.

Fabulous.

Raw desserts are freaking awesome.

Sunday morning was the first day of spring in Melbourne. A few of my closest friends and I decided it would be fun to venter to the nearest beach and grab brunch. We choose a small cafe that’s been in St. Kilda for ages. The decor was cute, the water was served in absolute vodka jars, and the food was reasonable and delicious.

I started with a Emma and Tom’s Green Juice.

And filled my stomach with multigrain toast sandwiched together with smoked salmon and a generous portion of avocado.

Yum.

Definitely having brunch more often.

So far the food in Australia has been fabulous. Can’t wait to share with you all what I eat next!

Now head on over to Peas and Crayons to see what everyone else is eating lately. Hopefully the pictures are just as mouth watering as these ones are!

    I actually do not like brunch at all, and not because of the food selection, but because I get so hungry by that time that I usually end up eating way more than normal! lol

    that being said, anytime I get brunch is it usually some combo of eggs and a starch (oatmeal, bread, etc.)

    and that raw dessert looks SUPER delicious. I’m jealous that you are in Australia! That is definitely on my bucket list of places to visit!
