baby-moon food diary

As I said, our baby-moon holiday had a major food theme. I recently heard about a girl who started drawing everything that she purchased as a way of keeping track of her spending (and limiting it). I thought I'd try and do something similar to keep a track of our food adventures during our week in Melbourne, as we had a list of recommended cafes and restaurants to find.

The best cafe/bar find was a place called Pellegrini's Espresso Bar, which was about a 10 minute walk from our apartment in the city. It was opened in 1954, and it still looked like it was 1954 inside. The staff were all old Italian men, the mains menu was made up of some brass plaques on the wall (no prices anywhere to be found) and the only drinks they served were Frozen Granita Juice (kind of like a frappe) or amazing Coffee. It was simple and classic! The food was so fresh and authentic. And so cheap! We ate dinner there twice during our week. Definitely worth a visit if your in Melbourne.
