Normally I try to condense the food photos down into one or two posts (well, sometimes…) but this time I couldn’t help but include a post just for the yummy food we tried at the Broadway Market and Victoria Park Village.
First up, Broadway Market. I was having a lot of trouble trying to decide what to eat at the markets (too many delicious smelling options). Fortunately for me, Yun recommended the mushroom risotto and it was delicious. Can’t beat a creamy risotto filled with mushrooms and topped with cheese and a salad. Heaven in a container!
Takeshi picked the Vietnamese noodles which although they took a long time to be prepared and served (was beginning to think Takeshi had been sucked into a black hole while collecting his lunch) were very fresh.
After lunch we walked over to Victoria Park Village, which was a rather beautiful street filled with small cafes, butchers and restaurants. We stopped at one of the cafes for cake and coffee.
While my drink doesn’t look that exciting (standard latte), I had to include a photo for one reason. No sugar required. I stopped drinking coffee out at cafes in Australia as they were always made too bitter and required sugar. For me, the perfect coffee out shouldn’t require sugar, and this particular one didn’t need any sugar at all – and it was delicious!
Takeshi enjoyed a cappuccino, which looked great.
And of course, I can’t forget some photos of the cakes. Takeshi decided to nibble a bit of mine, so here they are.
Andre chose a red velvet cake which looked rather nice.
Yun chose the Victoria sponge cake. The sponge was unfortunately a little dry, but the cream was very fresh and the jam had a lovely flavour.
And finally, Takeshi and I enjoyed a very delicious slice of carrot cake. The frosting was creamy and the cake was soft with lots of flavour. A great combination with the coffee!
Thank you Andre and Yun for treating us to a slice of cake and coffee at the Village, it was delicious!
