Melbourne: Fitz Cafe, Brunswick Street

We visited some lovely eateries and Fitz Cafe is one of them. The place is warm and inviting, food is unpretentiousness hearty and the service genuinely heartfelt.

The Pulled Pork Burger was a handful of hand-pulled porky goodness and slight crunchy coleslaw lovingly embraced between buttery toasty sesame buns. And those cajun-dusted potato wedges? As addictive as they come.

Out of the many things on the menu, I would have probably gone for the Jerk Burger or Corn Fritters, but we went with the Duck Pasta as it was more kid-friendly. The shredded duck ragout was given an Asian touch with the addition of spring onions and plum sauce; it was interesting and earthy, great for those who prefer non-tomato-based pasta.

We were stuffed (especially from the morning market grub) but went ahead with dessert anyway. Hey ho, we are on vacation! We decided to get the Nutella Smash Brownie because those brownies on the bar counter were just calling out my name.

Nutella brownie might sound like a no-brainer for deliciousness but this was so much more than that. Fudgy brownies and pistachio confetti conceal a dollop of rich decadent Nutella, a scoop of vanilla ice cream just keeps it from treading across the too-rich territory. The perfect word to describe this: scrumdiddlyumptious (thank you Mr Dahl)

After lunch, we took a walk around the very lovely Fitzroy Garden, where spring flowers were abloom. 

Good times xoxo
