Laurent Bakery

Ultra sweet (but I guess all meringues are always too sweet). 7/10.

Dinner at Ocha, 3 Church St, Hawthorn

Soba. 6.5/10.

Gyoza. Not bad but too salty! 7/10.

Scallop with Japanese hollandaise sauce. Again, too salty. 7/10.

Spicy calamari salad. I don't know why it's called 'spicy' as we couldn't taste any spice at all. 6.5/10.

Grilled eggplant with miso. Nice but super salty! 6.5/10.

Mirin chicken with salad. This was probably the worst dish. 5/10.

Overall, this place was really overrated. Good food guide gave it 15/20! I reckon it should be 12/20.

Cakes at Gânache, 250 Toorak Rd, South Yarra

Both the pear caramel and choc mousse cakes were absolutely fantastic.
Probably one of the best cakes I've eaten.

9.5/10! :)

Service was top-notch! Highly recommend this place. Will revisit!

Lunch at Red Elephant, 332 Burwood Rd, Hawthorn.

Pad Grapow! Yums! 8/10.

Yum Cha at Tao Tao House, 815 Glenferrie Road Melbourne, 3122

Overall rating: 8/10. Sorry, took a while to post these pics up. Unable to rate individual dish (cos can't remember it now)! However, I remember it to be rather enjoyable. Service was a bit slow at times but staff were polite. :)

Dinner at Ying Thai 1, 235 Victoria St Abbotsford, 3067

1) S ordered the hot and sour soup with acacia omelette. I tasted a
bit of it and actually liked it! 8.5/10. :)
2) I ordered the tom yum soup with prawns only. Very authentic! But
not for those can't take spicy foods, cos it was super spicy. 8/10.
3) J ordered the pad Thai noodles. I thought it was so-so. 7/10.

Combination seafood balls. 8/10.

1) Kong Pao Chicken 5/10.
2) Gado Gado (peanut sauce was good, not enough tofu though). 6.5/10
3) Assam fish head curry. Best of the 3 dishes that we ordered. A
little lacking in the assam but everything else was good! 7/10.
