We’ve just come home from a lovely holiday up to Byron Bay and I have so many food related updates to share. I can’t work out how to blog the food we ate in Byron, it might be a bit weird to do separate entries so I’m thinking of just creating one mega highlights post. It’s going to take me quite a while as most of our holiday snaps are of food, seriously I can hardly fit into my clothes anymore but boy oh boy was it worth it!
Anyway, now that we’re home we’ve still got a few days before we have to go back to… I can’t even say it, let’s just call it “the W word”, so we’re just having a nice chillaxo time enjoying Melbourne. It’s so weird that we’ve been here for 9 months now yet there are so many suburbs we haven’t even visited yet.
One thing that’s been helpful with our food adventures is Adrian’s new found love of coffee. He’s discovered the wonderful world of pour overs and cold drips and it all seems very exciting. I’ve really tried but I just can’t convert from tea, I just have to deal with the fact that Adrian has gone over to the dark side
Today we headed out to The Premises in Kensington in the hope of just picking up a takeaway coffee, though when we arrived the sun was shining and the tables along the footpath just looked too inviting not to take a seat. We were so happy that we did because the overall experience we had was just perfect. The staff here are really friendly and the atmosphere is a nice combination of classy and relaxed.
I ordered a tea and Adrian chose a pour over from a rather extensive coffee menu, we also ordered a vintage cheddar and salad sandwich to share as we were only a little bit peckish. My tea was lovely and Adrian was pretty darn happy with his coffee. I liked that when the coffee was brought out it also came with a little flyer on where the coffee came from, it was a nice touch.
Oh my gosh the sandwich was so yum! The bread was just amazing, full of seeds and grains and very soft. The chutney brilliantly cut through the cheese and there was a very decent amount of leaves, tomato and pickled carrot to bring the whole thing together. I know it won’t be long before I go back for another!
We couldn’t help but notice the amazing presentation of the food that was brought to the tables around us, very generous portions and I liked how they use wooden boards as plates. It really was all very pretty.
