Fish stew and red wine

28 April 2017

31 was excellent. The day of turning 31.

There’s a hood in Geelong I don’t really know, but there’s nothing like discovering a hood that’s new. So given it’s the new location of one of my BFF we set about eating and drinking it.

We settled into Bistro Plume where we shared a new Live Wire Pinot Noir with chicken liver parfait, blue cheese and figs and honey and then fish stew. (Which was a 10/10 and surrounded by fennel and beans and tomato and dill.) A special birthday chocolate fondant with vanilla bean ice cream topped it all off in a very lip smacking kinda way. The blue cheese and honey was especially delicious. I think because the honey was just right.

Richie cooked us all pasta for dinner and we sat around the fire switching quickly between laughing and story telling and snoozing and snuggling. The perfect type of April 27 night.

The gang asked what I would do for 31, I told them I would blog every day. They laughed and thought  loudly to themselves “ANOTHER FREAKIN’ BLOG?!” which I could hear.

Just the inspiration I needed…

Two Little Birds

Located at 46B Roslyn Road in Belmont there lies a secret behind a door. With beautiful clothes (including Ridley, Fleur Wood, Morrison, Bella Dahl, Steele, Bohemian Luxe and Lili Robusti) the shop is oozing colour, style, luxe and loving. Walk through the beautiful clothing, jewels and homewares and you’ll find a warm and comfortable space for coffee, breakfast, juice lunch and chats.

There are sandwiches/baguettes/muffins and daily made salads (etc) to take away or have in. The fridge is also laden with beautiful looking raw cakes.There’s a lovely hand written menu to have in if you are lucky enough to have a sneaky spare moments with a lovely pal just as I did. The menu features staples such as Eggs and Bacon with local bread, and fresh easy eating such as beautiful rice paper rolls.

We had the Zucchini Fritters, (which were a wee bit floury) but a bite was added with the horseradish cream and smoked salmon. The soy latte was hot but not bad (we are getting spoilt with good coffee finally, yippee!). There are  plenty of thirst quenching alternative drink options. The staff are gorgeous and friendly and it was a treat to eat at the secret behind the door.
