LadyBoy Dining & Bar

LadyBoy Dining & Bar is a colourfully neon lit eclectic paradise. This funky new edition to Richmond’s Thai cuisine Bridge Rd is hip with a cool vibe about it. Not feeling particularly hungry? No worries. There is a bar at the back just before the garden courtyard is for those who just wan to sit back, relax and have a drink. The walk-in restaurant offers food on the menu mainly to share and is only open from 6pm onwards. Reservations can only be made for groups of 6 or more.

KOBA

Armed with two KOBA vouchers, one from Living Social and the other from Scoopon I made my way to the fast food Koren Mexican take away joint. Having arrived just five past 11:30am, I was a little disappointed that the place was not raring to go. The boy at the counter was having trouble setting up the app to receive the Scoopon voucher deals. Instead of using the Scoopon deal, I decided to use the $9.00 Korrito & Small fries voucher I bought from living social a couple of months back. I would have to save the Scoopon $5.00 meal & drink deal for another day.

Pumpkin and Raspberry Scones

Pumpkin and Raspberry Scones

I like scones. I love getting creative with all the possible combinations you can make. Every time I decide to experiment with some fancy new scone flavour, my brother always asks me what my problem is with just baking plain scones. Nothing’s wrong with plain scones. I love my plain floury and buttermilky scones as well, but I just can’t help myself. My obsession with funky scones just completely overrides my love for the classic plain scone leading me to make these pumpkin and raspberry scones.

Bharawan Da Dhaba

Le Boy and I were craving some India after a training session on the bike to ready ourselves for the Around the Bay event. We had just done around 40km on the Eastlink Trail and we were both very hungry. Le Boy was craving for some Indian and so we decided to go to our go to place of choice for convenience and late hours. We went to Bharawan Da Dhaba. The first time I went here was on Sunday night at 11pm for dinner after ice skating at the Medibank ice centre. It was the only place that was still open. Since then Bharawan Da Dhaba has been the place Le Boy and I go, to get our late night Indian fix.

Momotaro Rahmen

Momotaro Rahmen

 It’s often hard to forget how busy Bridge Rd becomes sometimes. Even more so, how busy the shops along this road are as well. Momotaro Rahmen is like your popular local noodle shop where you get served up bowls of ramen instead your usual pho or laksa noodle bowls. The little noodle shop is small but plays hosts to an impressive number of chairs and seats for its customers despite the small floor space. As you enter Momotaro Rahmen, there is a sign which tells you to order and pay at the counter first before taking a seat. Most people come to Momotaro for the ramen (made evident by the number of large white bowls everywhere), but they do have a few entree options available to order as well. And they entreees that they do serve, stack up pretty well on their own.

Ike’s Rack Shack

Ike’s Rack Shack

It was a little difficult to figure out how to get to Ike’s Rack Shack at first. From the outside all the signs are there at the Beaufort, and on the inside you can definitely see the rack shack. What I didn’t realize at the time was when it says that Ike’s Rack Shack was at the back of the Beaufort, they meant inside the Beaufort towards the back. I had to walk around the back where the chefs were working to ask them how to get inside. It was a little embarrassing but I was not ready for any more puzzles for the night, especially after doing The Mine Escape Room earlier on in the evening.

The Escape Room Melbourne| Mine Escape

The Escape Room Melbourne| Mine Escape

Imagine being locked in a room (literally) and the only way for you to get out (except for real life emergencies) is to solve your way out. The Escape Room Melbourne revolves around a concept where players in groups of 2-6 are required to solve a series of hands on problems to escape from the room they are trapped in. You have roughly 70mins to complete the puzzle which requires you think outside the box (sometimes literally). You will need to do some lateral thinking, be able to read between the lines and work in a team.
