Melbourne Series – Cacao Green


Saturday night

Dessert time! Last time I was in Melbourne this store wasn’t opened yet. It came highly recommended because of their all natural, organic and fairtrade products, oh and its supposed to be very delicious too 

From the website:

“Unlike other branded products that often contain artificial flavors, artificial sweeteners, or excessive calories from sugar or fat, our frozen yogurt is made with natural ingredients, non-fat, and contains nutrients and probiotics that are good for your health. We want to share the best tasting healthy non-fat fruity yogurt with you.”

Besides frozen yoghurt there is also waffles!

There are many frozen yoghurt flavours including chocolate, italian orginal and french strawberry (seasonal). You can add different fruits, nuts and toppings to your frozen yoghurt.

Melbourne Series – Noodle Kingdom


Saturday night

With so many places to eat in Melbourne, I find it very hard to choose. One of our friends said that they knew a place that had dumplings, close to the theatre and was very reasonably priced. He didn’t need to say anything more, he had me at dumplings 

Hand made noodles made on premises.

Despite the name, we were there for another reason. DUMPLINGS!

Pork buns

Xiao long bao

Fried dumplings- pork and chives

Boiled dumplings- pork and chives

Even after eating so many dumplings, we had to at least try some hand made noodles (before ordering more dumplings). 

Chicken with hand made noodles- I can’t remember the exact name of this dish, but I’ve described the jist of it. It was very very hot, you could tell it was fresh noodles though.

I only took a photo of each type of dish, but I didn’t let you know how many plates we ordered of each  (with no dumpling was left standing) and it still only came to less than $15 per person! Bargain!

Don’t expect table cloths and chandeliers, but if you’re going to give me delicious dumplings and serve huge bowls of noodles (I saw other tables order this) at good prices, I won’t complain.
