TreViet ★★★

484 Ballarat Rd Sunshine VIC 3020 Australia TreViet is a restaurant that specialises in Vietnamese and Chinese flavours. They have an extensive dinner a la carte menu. Food was pretty average. Probably wouldn't be back.  Custard Apple Smoothie $5.50  Sweet and refreshing! ★★★ Iced White Coffee $3.50  Super cheap iced coffee! But also very sweet and bitter. ★★ Chinese Mushroom Roasted Pork & Bean Curd with Rice $12.80  Decent dish but only had a little bit of pork. Decent amount of sauce to mix with the rice. The shiitake was delicious. ★★★☆ Rice Noodle Beef Soup with Rare Beef, Brisket and Beef Fats $11.90 On the pricer side as far as pho goes. Meat was not rare and hard to eat. Broth was only lightly flavoured. ★★ Menu TreViet Most Popular/Recommended : - Price : $ Address : 484 Ballarat Rd Sunshine VIC 3020 Australia Opening Hours : Everyday: 11am to 3pm, 5pm to 11pm Website : https://www.fac

Poke King ★★★★

385 Brunswick St Fitzroy VIC 3065 Australia ★★★★ Poke King serves up an assortment of healthy and fresh poke based dishes. The vibrant and colourful store reflects the fun that they put into their food. Not only do they have the usual bowl options, they have also expanded to snack packs and healthy smoothies.  Would recommend! Peanut Butter Banana Protein (small) $8, Pineapple and Strawberry Aloha Water $10 Not usually a peanut butter fan myself, but this smoothie was amazing. So much creaminess and chocolatey goodness without being too sweet. Would definitely recommend! ★★★★☆ The aloha water is such a simple and easy way to help you stay hydrated. The re-useable bottle is such a environmentally friendly option. Love it! ★★★★★ Mixed rice, beetroot, corn, edamame, red cabbage, seaweed salad, tuna, avocado, Japanese sesame, wasabi mayo, nori and white sesame  The sauce just held all the ingredients together so well! Healthy, fresh and deli

St. Charly ★★★☆

306-308 Lygon St Carlton VIC 3053 Australia St. Charli is a cute little cafe along the prominent road of Lygon Street. This bright and colourful cafe serves up some beautiful coffee as well as innovative dishes. Worth dropping by if you're in the area! Cappuccino $4 Beautiful coffee art! Strong and creamy coffee  ★★★★ St. Charli Chilli Chicken Burger $17 (+ $2.50) Portuguese Style Marinated Chicken Tenderloin, Monterey Jack Cheese, Grilled Pineapple, Bacon, Baby Cos & Sambal Chilli Aioli, French Fries (+ 1/4 Avocado) Being a fan of pineapple in a burger, this one really hit the spot. Would've liked a bit more of the sambal chili aioli though!   ★★★ Potato & Caraway Rosti $23 Smoked Trout, Crispy Cavolo Nero, Poached Eggs, Labna, Fresh Herbs, Caper Hollandaise HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! Perfectly poached eggs coated in a delicious hollandaise sauce. The rosti was a better base than bread, nice and crispy! ★★★★ Sambal Scramb

Eden Espresso ★★★★

115 Glenferrie Road Malvern VIC 3144 Australia Eden Espresso is a popular café on the busy Glenferrie Road in Malvern. The café itself isn't very big, but there's extra seating outside the front and back to cater for more people. Eden Espresso is set up in such a way to feel very homey and comfortable with its large tables and couches. The menu options are limited compared to other brunch places, but everything we ordered was delicious! Coffees are also done very well here and worth trying out.  Latte $4 Coffees were creamy and smooth. No sugar needed. ★★★★ Middle Eastern Eggs $17.90 Poached Eggs served in a spiced hearty Tomato Concasse, topped with pan fried Haloumi & crusty Turkish Bread Loved the addition of haloumi to these baked eggs! Just adds a delicious creaminess to everything. The tomato concasse had a rich flavour with just the right amount of spice. ★★★☆ The Recovery $17.90 Potato Rosti topped with Scrambled Eggs, Slice
