So what’s everyone’s opinion on freeganism as a lifestyle? Disgusting, dirty, dumpster divers; Subverting the course of capitalism; or just cheapskates looking for a good healthy meal? If anyone has any opinions on the subject or secret spots they’d like to share, or if you want to be a part of the zine I’m currently researching on the topic, I’d love to hear from you.
“The best vanilla slice in Victoria” is a claim you will see propped up in the window of many a Victorian cafe or bakery, regardless of the quality of their vanilla slice.
Not the Caulfield Plaza Bakery. Mainly because they don’t really have a window and also fuck you. Step inside the plaza and you will be transported back to 1986. The bakery doesn’t even try and the get it perfect. It’s the perfect ‘afternoons-spent-in-the-corner-of-the-computer-labs-with-coffee-on-Illustrator-and-Tumblr-and-Photo-Booth’ snack.
Inject that crème pâtissière straight into my veins!
As a former Monash Caulfield student, I can completely vouch for this.
Caulfield Plaza may house one of the most pathetically stocked Coles supermarkets in Australia, be the scene of numerous robberies, assaults, attacks and god knows what else, allow that strange cafe thing to sell its ‘food’ and actually lease out a shop that sells some of the worst homemade t-shirts you’ve ever seen, but shit - that vanilla slice is a little piece of heaven.
oh!the number of times ive gone there to get a beef and mushroom pie and a portuguese egg tart…. mmmm best thing ever. love you caulfield!
I am having a green bean and eggplant pie and a portuguese egg tart for lunch tomorrow. Oh man. Every day, I thank Malk that the proposed Caulfield Law faculty project fell through. Hands of my egg tarts, shysters!
The girl who took the photo reported them as Korean, but she is American so... Ha, just kidding (sort of). It's possible they are Latin American as you say, but damn, I would say, "I can't believe I ate the whole thing!"
Thanks for the kind words about looking after me and all.
From my intensive Googlin’, what I can gather about ‘potato on a stick’ is that it’s a very cheap and popular franchising option in the Philippines? Maybe potato on a stick has no cultural cuisine precedent? Except for the culture of the carnival. Korean potato on a stick would be amazing if the potato stick was drizzled (smothered) with chogochujang.
when eating at home my three major food groups are olives, cheese and cured meats. now I live in Mediterraneatown. my local foodworks has te freddo! hipster lifestyle. <3 melbourne. have you found somewhere to live yet? would have been rad if you'd moved into G's!
Get into lountza! It’s a Cypriot cured pork that they sell at the Mediterranean Wholesalers, if you’re in North Brunswick (which they maybe call lonza, the Italian term for it). Cypriot meat tastes different to other cured meat because it’s completely saturated with wine. Basically, nom.
I have a meet and greet with the other housemates for what is to most likely be my new place in Carnegie tomorrow night. Here’s to hoping?!
“You’re afraid of change. You like to play Fever To Tell every time you get drunk, and your friends are always like, “There’s actually this new band out called-” and you’ll scream, “Silence!” before they can finish. The mood will be very tense and you’ll just play “Maps” to make it all better. You’ve been told you need to get professional help but you don’t listen. All the answers you need can be found in Oh, Inverted World by The Shins anyway.”—What Your Favourite Magazine Says About You (via unicornology)
“We wanted to see TV on the Radio because neither Danny or I had ever seen them live. We were running late, so we got in a pedicab. It looked like we were on a date/in love. Which was not entirely false.”—Donald Glover (via thatgirlpatty)
