We had planned to visit Melbourne’s Royal Botanic Gardens this weekend, but the weather was very dreary, cold and wet, so we decided to stick to our own neighbourhood instead. Just to the East of us is a neighbourhood called Fitzroy and it’s stuffed with excellent restaurants, art shops, and design stores. We also were lucky enough to stumble across a little Japanese vintage shopÂ just around the corner. The owner had opened up the apartment in the back of the store and was cooking up vegetarian Okonomiyaki for donation. It was delicious. Christian also took me out for amazing vegetarian food at an Indian place (Shakahari) just a few doors down from our apartment. And we finished off the weekend with a piece of delicious strawberry cake from this really popular Italian coffee and sweet shop down the street called Brunetti. Perfect weekend.
