FOMO Thai – 171 Bourke st, Melbourne

Sorry for the late Monday post! I’ve had no net access at the apartment so I wasn’t able to schedule today’s post for the normal morning time. Better late than never though right?

Last week we were finally able to catch a table at FOMO Thai and the staff were friendly and helped us arrange the baby and the pram so we could dine comfortably. We sat near the kitchen and the wafting aroma made us order 3 dishes in a hurry! – it all smelt so good! The place has a very modern interior including it’s tableware – no jade green plates and saucers to be found here. Clean, fresh and crisp.

We ordered the Thai style crispy duck salad and for those that need a little help eating their veggies, this is a great salad to seduce your tastebuds! We also ordered the char grilled beef tenderloin medium rare served with tangy dipping sauce. The meat was so tender and was complemented nicely by the dipping sauce that came with it. Our third dish was the roasted pork bellies servied with 3 speciality condiments, definitely not for those who are on a diet but a must-try anyway because of the amazing crackling that is on offer with every piece you eat. Perfectly crunchy.

This place hasn’t been open for very long but if you want to check it out make sure you either make a booking or come in early so that you get a seat because it is always a full house at FOMO.

A new cafe in the West, Rozzi’s Italian Canteen, a nice big mug of coffee for brekkie, Eggs benedict

Rozzi’s Italian Canteen, Highpoint Shopping Centre, Rosamond Rd, Maribyrnong

Cuisine: Cafe-style with cold salads, focaccias, and cakes in the window and made to order meals on the menu.

Location: Accessible location at the entrance of the new food hall and close to the elevators and escalators.

Service: We came for brunch on a Sunday and it was starting to get busy however we received our coffee and our meals in good time by friendly staff and patient staff.

Food: We both ordered the eggs Benedict, which is rare as we always try to order different dishes so that we can taste more of the menu! It was such a good blend of buttery, smooth flavours and the eggs were poached beautifully. Beautiful presentation.

Drink: I didn’t order any drinks but the better half ordered a cap and it came out in a huge FRIENDS-like mug with a nice aroma 🙂

Kid-Friendly?: Yes! Easy access from the carpark and we were able to arrange our chairs around our table to accommodate our pram!

We wanted to find a comfortable place to enjoy a nice brunch in the sun and decided to check out the new cafe at Highpoint. Rozzi’s is located at the entrance of the food hall section with lots of natural light shining through the windows and both indoor and outdoor seating. After having their deliciously, creamy eggs Benedict and being able to accommodate our pram, we will definitely be coming back to try more! Their salads look delish!!!
