Whatta beautiful day today.  I guess Spring is approaching.  We decided to go to Gleadell Street Market again.  Gosh! Pineapples for a dollar each.  Bargain!  We bought ten… will have to do some pineapple tarts later in the week. Later, we had lunch at Richmond.  Yes, again… food is cheap at Little Vietnamese town.  This [...]

Yum! My favorite… this is “tong yuen” or glutinous rice ball. It is eaten to welcome the Winter Season but it is almost Spring here in Australia. Oh well, I guess it can be eaten at anytime of the year. It signifies the end of a good harvest and the beginning of the resting period [...]

Gleadell Street Market

This is like a wholesale or farmer’s market in Richmond, Victoria.  Only available on Saturdays.  I suggest that you go there early.  It is so hard to find parking.  Organic fruits and vegetables are also available.  Flowers and breads too.  If you happened to arrive late, there is a good chance of getting great bargains ie.

Bamboo Chopsticks

Looking for some home cook meal?  This little place is where you’ll find a great meal.  We’ve been going there for years.  The chef/owner even grows his own vegetables.  That’s how fresh his dishes are.  This place is also ever popular with take-away. Anyhow, we had 3 dishes for 5 people (lol, small eaters). This is [...]

Today, we went to our favorite Vietnamese Rice Noodles shop in Richmond. *Phở is served as a bowl of white rice noodles in clear beef broth, with thin cuts of beef (steak, fatty flank, lean flank, brisket). Variations featuring tendon, tripe, meatballs, chicken leg, chicken breast, or other chicken organs (heart, liver, tongue, etc.) are also [...]
