Wonder Bowl | Melbourne CBD

Autumn in Wellington is the best time of the year, in my opinion. It’s cold but not yet freezing, and I love it! Unfortunately, the colder days are making me miss eating at Wonder Bowl. It’s a hidden Chinese restaurant in Melbourne specializing in Asian noodle soups and the use of Chinese rice wine. The one we visited was tucked away in the first level of a place along Little Lonsdale Street. S and I would never have known about the place if my brother wasn’t there with us to show us around.

Shortstop Coffee & Donuts| Melbourne CBD

I find it hard not to talk about Shortstop when I think of Melbourne. I’ve wanted to get my hands on their goods for the longest time, so it wasn’t at all surprising that I insisted we visit their store when we went to Australia last December.

I think everyone knows I’m not a massive donut (doughnut?) person, but this place might just have made me one step closer to being one. In our 15 or so days in Melbourne, I’ve dropped by their quaint Sutherland Street shop three times. Looking back, I really should have visited more often but I feel my already burgeoning waistline is thanking me that I did not. My rubbish exercise “routine” doesn’t allow me to eat the amount of sugary treats I think I deserve.

Ramblings

I spent most of my time the last couple of months gaming. I lost interest in writing and immersed myself in the first Division game. Once I’ve reached the endgame, I shifted my attention to The Witcher 3’s Blood and Wine expansion. I have yet to finish that one, but now that I’m sucked right back into the Witcher world, I have no intention of rushing to finish it.

Joe’s Garage | Wellington CBD

It’s a challenge to find things to write about after cutting down on the number of times S and I eat out. This is all because we’re saving money and (more importantly) calories for our upcoming trip to Australia. Thankfully, I noticed I have some photos from Joe’s Garage sitting in my phone’s gallery and thought that it was the perfect chance for me to do a little post about that meal.

It was after watching one of the films featured during the Japanese Film Fest when we dropped by Joe’s Garage along Tory Street. It’s a place we see all the time (thanks to our Pokemon Go playtime) but just didn’t get to check out until we couldn’t think of any other place and decided to pop in for a quick bite.
