Om Nom Dessert Bar

Address: 187 Flinders Lane, Melbourne VIC 3000 Australia

Opening hours: Breakfast: Daily (7am-12pm), Dinner & Desserts: Mon-Sat (6pm-12am)

It was a Saturday and the four of us (Mr. D, KS, Goon & myself) decided to visit the DreamWorks Animation: The Exhibition that was held at ACMI in Federation Square. I came to know this place through KS over brunch. He casually told me that he heard and read that there is a new dessert place at Flinders Lane. I then asked what is the name of the place so that I can have a look at the menu. This is what I usually do whenever someone tell me about a new place that I should try out. I will  type the restaurant name in the Google search bar immediately and check out the restaurant menu. If the items on the menu sounds interesting and pique my interest to taste them, I will add them to my “To Eat” list. It is no wonder why my list is ever growing. I don’t think I could completely tick off all of the listed restaurants by this year without leaving a BIG hole in my wallet. 😦

Anyways, back to my review. After reviewing Om Nom’s menu, I was very much adamant that I have to try it out. Mr. D and I had an early dinner that day and I decided to try my luck on getting a table at the dessert bar at 6.00pm. I gave them a call and we were fortunate to get a table. KS & Goon did not join us as they already had dinner appointment with their friends.

Boxing Day

Address: 125 Flinders Lane, Melbourne VIC 3000, Australia.

Opening hours: 7 days a week (11 am – late)

Mr. D and I spent our Boxing Day shopping with our friends (Goon, KS and HY) in Melbourne CBD. The first thing we do when we reached the city is to fuel up our tummies at Chin Chin, a restaurant that serves South-East Asian cuisine. This place is usually very busy and crowded with long queues, a common sight at the restaurant. However, this time we managed to walk in and obtained a table almost immediately. Thanks to the shopaholics and bargain hunters who were more than willing to forgo their lunch so that they could grab the items they want before they ran out. We, on the other hand, needed to charge up first. I couldn’t sacrifice my tummy as it is equally and possibly even more important than my shopping. 😛

After studying the menu, we decided to order the kingfish sashimi for entree. We absolutely adored this dish as not only the fish was super fresh, the combination of the sweetness of the fish, the sourness from the lime with the fragrance from the coconut and thai basil were just perfect!
