Melbourne escape part 2: Old Raffles Place

And so, the journey continues as we venture out into Fitzroy. First impression? Small lanes, lots of outdoor tables with dim lights and sights of oven-baked pizzas aplenty. We searched high and low for this little Singaporean outlet (of which, had recently moved locations so be sure to call to query). We did passed by Shocolate, home of Melbourne's best chocolate macarons but due to time constraint, we were unable to pop by for a visit. Perhaps next time?:)

Lots of vintage pictures of Singapore pre-and post independence:)

Hokkien mee~ not your average Malaysian version! Wet noodles served with chilli paste. Absolutely heavenly (but I had to share!!!). A definite must have:)

Chicken rice~ According to my Singaporean buddy, this version is quite similar to the one's served in Singapore but if you don't have much tummy space, opt for the hokkien mee:p

Curry laksa~ well...not much could be said. It wasn't overly impressive but it was a decent meal. Not spicy, mainly to cater for the local tastebuds:)

70 Johnston St, Collingwood (03-94174450)

*Remember to call if you don't want to end up wandering the entire Fitzroy
