Melbourne Zombie Shuffle 2013 Pt 1

 12 October 2013

"Melbourne's biggest annual gathering of the undead. What do we want? BRAINS!When do we want it? BRAINS! "

Early morning, we went to Fitzroy Garden before catching up with friend at Chadstone for a movie. My title of the post has made it clear. Unfortunately, we ain't participating in Melbourne Zombie Shuffle. We just being a normal person who curious to have a look instead of acting as a zombie. When we reached there, surprisingly there are more photographers than people who dressed up.

Fat Beans Cafe @ Jam Factory, South Yarra

Hi All !!!

I really missed blogging here. Today is Melbourne cup day and my first time ever had day off for this pubic holiday. What I usually did for the past few years at this time was having uni exams. Today, all I did was slept for 9 hours and had nap for another 3 hours after brunch. Right now, I'm waiting for pizza delivery. HUN-GRY.. ...

On last Sunday, finally I had the chance to catch up with friends. There was a group of 10 have lunch at Fat Beans Cafe. I thought it gonna be easy to spot the cafe especially when it's located inside the Jam Factory. Unexpectedly, we spent about 10 minutes to look for it till I noticed the cafe's board and Fat Beans was written there. It was right in front of us. Avoid searching the name of the cafe, Fat Beans just located opposite the cinema in Jam Factory.

The Big Breakfast

 Scrambled eggs with Mushroom- $16.50
 Small portion and slightly overpriced to me.

What the Duck - Risotto. $19.50

This is what I have ordered. It was fulfilling and the taste was average. Cheesy but the duck seems not the main point for the whole dish. Lack of duck meat flavours on it.

Iced Chai - paid extra 2 dollars for it. I was hoping that my chai could taste stronger though.

 Corn and Pumpkin Fritter with poached eggs

I wasn't sure what others think of their meals. We bought vouchers from Groupon and managed to have a drink + meal for $11. Normally, I would have low expectations towards the quality of the meal when I visit restaurant with a voucher. The fact is I'm glad that Fat Beans cafe did not let me down and we enjoyed our time being there.

Somehow, if I'm going to pay full price for a meal, I unlikely going to visit Fat Beans again. The price range is $15 - $20 and the menu isn't interesting for me.

Guess what?! Ding Dong~! My pizza has arrived..
Alright, I shall off now. Not too long till weekend again !
