Melbourne-Gyu Tan Don FTW

*edited: added a few missing photos.

Damn semangat now so I’m gonna start blogging on my recent Melbourne trip! You see our bff host Katie had been bragging about how good Gyu Tan Don is. So for lunch on the very first day, we went to Menya Japanese Restaurant to try out Gyu Tan Don, or to be exact, ox tongue rice.

#1 (replacing captions with number just in case I run out of ideas HAHA)

#2 I know ox tongue sounds gross but really, it tastes just like thin strips of beef, except twice yummier!

#3 The good thing about restaurants in Melbourne is that they serve free tap water. Not all restaurants serve their tap water like Menya though, with decorations like lemon, strawberries, tomatoes and the unknown green leaves thingy. It tastes weird as if you’re drinking from your kitchen’s vege basin. I think I would stick to plain water.

#4 Most of the food in Melbourne are served in big portion. no wonder ang moh are fat

#5 We can haz Gyu Tan Don!

I think the best thing that complements Gyu Tan Don is the spring onion but Katie hates it. It’s really spicy and definitely not for people like Jess who has a lower tolerance on spicy food.

Shopped at QV (Queen Victoria) after lunch. Bought a few clothes from Valleygirl and they’re all black. It’s the city of black apparently, and I was already being Melbournised even on the first day. LOL.

#6 Tokui Sushi, the best sushi in town! Only $2 each and two sushi are already more than enough for we girls.

That’s all for now! Keep your fingers crossed for more Melb entries. There’ll be 5 AT LEAST, I promise! So many photos my internal hard disk can hardly take it. Tsk tsk.
