We are back from Germany! We had three glorious weeks at home with my family. Christmas in the dark and cold Northern hemisphere, just like I like it. And it even started snowing on Boxing Day. It was sad to say goodbye again but we are already planning our next trip. So through all the jetlag and farewell sadness I was happy to see the South Melbourne Night Markets 2015 were popping up this week. And they’re coming back every Thursday for the next 8 weeks!
Dinner is sorted for the next 8 Thursday I’d say!
We ordered a Vietnamese Roll with Roast Pork Belly ($6) and a Green Chicken Curry with Rice ($12). Despite it being fairly busy it didn’t take too long for our food to come out. L’s Banh Mi looked amazing and tasted delicious! The pork was lovely and crispy and came with Asian slaw, chilli and coriander.
I was glad to realize my green curry wasn’t too hot but had just the right amount of punch to it, it was delicious!
Along we walked through the market and came across a stall that smelled very familiar and absolutely mouthwatering. A raclette stall! I’ve grown up with this dish that consists of melted cheese scraped over potatoes and have even hosted a raclette night for my friends in Melbourne before.
Frencheese offered two options, ‘La Traditionelle’ ($11) with just potatoes, cornichons, salad and melted Raclette cheese. And ‘La Charcuterie’ ($13), same as above but with added salami and ham. We decided to try La Charcuterie and I was literally licking my lips while waiting. We were lucky and didn’t have to wait too long and after about 5 minutes we could dig in.
Unfortunately the dessert stall, where they were selling doughnuts and waffles had such a long line we decided to skip it this time and come back next week. But it looked and smelled delicious.
But the pretzels from Bretzel.biz tasted like the real deal from home. They were fresh and soft inside. We opted for the Salted Caramel ($7) one which was a great choice!
