Elliot was on the pursuit of the best coffee and Coffee Army recommended Auction Rooms, on Errol Street. It didn't disappoint and the food was even better. Top marks for presentation.
The Young Ones are familiar with great cheap eats and their preference for authentic Vietnamese has constantly led them to Pho Hung Vuong Saigon in Footscray. The pho came out steaming hot, accompanied by copious amounts of bean sprouts and herbs. Auntie Jenny would have been well-pleased.
Naked For Satan is a Spanish-style pintxo bar serving an array of vodka. Housed in a building of great character on Brunswick Street, there is a rooftop bar with commanding views.
My friend Antonia also took me to Vegie Bar, just a block down from Naked For Satan. A veritable feast of things vegetarian and Asian fusion, with raw and gluten-free options.
The Young Ones took me to Big Mama Korean Restaurant as it used to be in their old stomping ground of RMIT and apartment. It doesn't disappoint.
