Last Days

My last days in Melbourne were mostly occupied with trying to eat as much as possible before I left.

I enjoyed some awesome factory canteen meals.

I went with my housemate Blake to Rockpool Bar & Grill for the best steak of my life.  One million out of ten, would eat again at every meal. 

The restaurant was super ambient i.e. dark so I didn't get any decent snaps, but here are the drinks we had afterwards at one of the many many bars at the casino.
Mine was called a Turkish Delight and that's really what it tasted like! V sweet but good.
I did take one night out from my busy restaurant-going schedule to stay home.  I made one of my favourite dinners: snacks!
Gosh I love smoked salmon.

Just a little snack in the factory.
We went to The Pancake Parlour in Chadstone with Taruna (hello if you're reading!).

She and I shared this cheese and potato pancake, with optional mushroom sauce and bacon.  It was exactly how I wanted it to be, all cheesy and salty and delicious.

On our last night we went out to dinner at Red Spice Road.

There were cocktails galore.

This was a soft shell crab dish that tasted better than it looked, though a little aniseedy for me.  The thing behind it is some kind of salad with salmon or trout in it, I don't really remember but I do remember that it was incredibly tasty.  I would definitely have it again.
P.S. Here's what I was wearing:
And also my leopard shoes.

Afterwards we went dancing at Spice Market, which was super fun except that it closed pretty early, and then we went to a much less nice place for the rest of the night.

But it was heaps of fun! I had such a nice time partying with all my Melbourne buddies, I am gonna miss them all heaps.

Then I came home, packed a bit, slept for two hours, woke up, packed some more and rushed off to the airport, where I had one last crack at the food allowance:

Big breakfast! I liked the hash browns best.
And now I am home.
