Belles Hot Chicken

The most amazing southern fried chicken I have ever had.

Choose your meat then choose your type of rub - from usual southern fried to bloody hot. Then choose your side.

I had the chicken tenders with the mild rub with a side of pickled vegetables. It was delicious - the chicken deliciously tender and the rub has just the right amount of spice for me. The pickled vegetables were delicious and definitely balance out the chicken. I am salivating just looking at this photo. I can't wait to go back. And I think you should go there now.

Lazerpig Pizza Parlour in Collingwood.

Delicious pizza and the Mac and Cheese croquettes, out of this world. Pretty sweet and cosy venue too.

Can't wait to go back to try more of their pizza.

On a windy, wet and cold sunday afternoon we made our way down Church Street Richmond to Kong. It was warm and cosy and the Japanese and Korean fusion of food was delicious.

The Roti rolls were definitely my favourite of all the dishes we had - we ordered two! Would highly recommend these.

Fried Rice w\ Kimchi and Beef Brisket
Pork Belly and Soft Shell Crab bun

Roti Rolls - This is the chopped salmon roll. We also had the pulled pork

Will definitely be back to try more of their delicious dishes - especially there BBQ'd meats.

Truck Stop

I had high hopes for this new burger joint that has the brains of three burger master minds behind it (Josh Lefers (Grand Trailer Park Taverna and Pawn & Co.), Dani Zeini (Dandenong Pavillion and Grand Trailer Park Taverna) and Jimmy Hurlston (Jimmy’s Burgers and Easey’s)). 

While the set up of the joint itself was awesome, unfortunately Truck Stop Deluxe did not deliver burgers like I had hoped. Having been to Grand Trailor Park already, I found that the menu was pretty much exactly the same, and the burgers quite mediocre. I ordered the Francis Underwood burger which comes with a Mac and Cheese croquette as well as a beef patty. I felt that mine was quite gluggy as there wasn't much sauce to moisten it all up and the patty itself lacked flavour - whether it was missing seasoning or whether it was the type of meat used. The croquette was ok - however, due to lack of sauce, it only added to the dryness of the burger. 

I have ticked this one off my list and unfortunately it won't be on my list of places to go back to anytime soon.
