Higher Ground | Melbourne

I came across Higher Ground, when I liked Too Paddock Cafe on Instagram and Higher Ground showed up in the "suggestions for you" section. The description said it's run by the same crew, as Top Paddock. I looked on google maps and it was only 20 mins walk, from the hotel I was staying at and I planned heading near that way. 

I decided to stop at Higher Ground for lunch, so I used google maps to find Little Bourke Street. I couldn't see any numbers or higher ground, yet it was telling me to turn right and saying "you have reached your destination". I stopped and looked around and couldn't see any building saying Higher Ground, so I walked further up then it was telling to to turn right and right again. I ended up back on Little Bourke Street. I walked on the other side of the road, that I originally walked down and there was a small sign on the building saying Higher Ground. I actually walked by it first time round, as I couldn't see any sign across the building.


I walked in and was asked how many people for the table, I replied just me. Then I was given a table and menu. I did actually look at the menu online, so I knew what I wanted. I noticed a lot of places in Australia have sourdough in their meals, so I was curious what it was like.   

I ordered :

Mixed lamp fry up
Egg plant purée, fried eggs, barberries, smoked yogurt, pine nut dukkah, sourdough

And an iced chocolate.



I am one of those fussy meat eaters, but Higher Ground set the lamb presentable that it looked edible. All I can say about sourdough is dont try eat it on its own, but it's actually really nice mixed with the lamp and egg. The meal and drink came to $27. People said to me food and drink in Australia is expensive, but I honestly thought Top Paddock and Higher Ground was reasonable price.

New York Minute | Melbourne


I wrote up a list of ideas of things I wanted to do and see, while visiting Australia. New York Minute made the list, all in the name of New YorkI looked at the menu online, before heading to Australia so I knew I was going to go for the Philly cheesesteak and a milkshake. 

On the first day arriving in Melbourne I used google maps to find New York Minute Burger. It didn't stand out, in fact google maps was sending me past it haha. I headed in and looked at he menu, to double check the Philly cheesesteak was on the menu. I asked for Philly cheesesteak, chips and a caramel milkshake.   


It was nice and it must have looked good, as a few people stopped and asked where the place is. The only thing I'd say it's not exactly a takeaway if you are in a hurry. I noticed a lot of places in Australia, it's 1 person running the place. The woman charged for it, then she said "ill just go and make your food and milkshake now". At least you know it's freshly made, but it's not good if you are in a hurry.

Wetherspoon Christmas Dinner | Brie & Cranberry Vegetable Burger



It's that time of you, where everywhere you go has Christmas dinner inspired meals. I headed to The White Lady (Wetherspoon) with my Mum for dinner. 

I ordered the brie and cranberry vegetable burger, which came with chips, onion rings and a drink. The drink I had was.... an Irn Bru. Everyone who knows me, knows I always go for Irn Bru. Irn Bru should give me a job. I do well, at advertising Irn Bru.

What can I say where else can you get Christmas dinner, with chips ? The vegetable burger is the burger on their main menu, but with breaded brie on top.
