Noobie Foodie│Hot Star Large Fried Chicken

Hello beautiful people! 
Following my post about fried chicken last week I decided to blog about a little food adventure I had in Melbourne recently! FEATURING FRIED CHICKEN! This was one of the BEST fried chicken I've ever had! Context: it was during a really cold, rainy night and we got hungry during the bar hopping so we decided to try out Hot Star and IT WAS WORTH IT! NO REGRETS! 

So on to the food... 
We just got the Original Fried Chicken ($8) and it was WORTH EVERY DOLLAR! First of all the size of the fried chicken really surprised me!! The size of the chicken was bigger than my face - I can't really imagine eating it by myself! 

So it was a little bit oily but the chicken was so moist and juicy! I loved it within the first bite! SO GOOD!! There were some bones in it but there wasn't many and by the time we reached the chicken we were so full! 
So happy eating chicken! 

IT's bigger than my face! 
The thing with Hot Star is there is usually a pretty long line so it take a while to get the chicken but we got really lucky and there was no line so we got served within 2-3 minutes, it was so efficient!

Noobie Foodie│Naruone

Hello friends! For those who don't know I LOVE KOREAN FOOD! ALOT! And luckily for me I have a group of friends who agree with me YAYY! So our fambam went to have family at Naruone (mainly for the fried chicken hehe). I really miss you guys btw if any of you are reading this :(
ANYWAY! Naruone is definitely one of my personal favourite Korean places in the City! And this post will tell you why!
So on to the food..


This is how we start every Korean meal! With Japchae! Japchae is stir fried potato/starch noodles with a variation of vegetables and sometimes beef.  Definitely one of the best Korean dishes mainly because the noodles are so flavoursome and the texture of the noodles is so smooth and nice! Yummy!
Crispy Edges! 

Seafood Pancake! 
Another dish that we ALWAYS get because our friend loves seafood pancake to death! Every time, every Korean restaurant without fail we will order seafood pancake! But I'm not complaining - it's one of my favourites as well! There's always calamari, mussels, prawns and spring onion! I love the fried edges and chewy texture of this pancake!
Fried Chicken!  
OHHH LOOK AT THAT GLORIOUS CHICKEN! This was the boneless fried chicken in original flavour and man it was good! SO delicious! Not too oily but fried to perfection - warning do not eat this too quickly it will burn your tongue! This dish literally vanished from the plate! HAHA!
Steamed Egg 
Steamed egg! I love eggs no matter how they're cooked but this is was a yummy dish that was warm and fluffy! So good! Very easy to eat and I will learn how to cook this one day! 
And of course bulgogi! Definitely a must when in the mood for meat! Marinated beef thinly sliced bee-  who can say no to that? I can't!

Noobie Foodie│Bavarian Bier Cafe

Hi FRIENDS! I like beer and I cannot lie! A while ago my friends and I celebrated my dear Lori's birthday at Bavarian Bier Cafe on York street and it was such a fun experience! Especially since it was Earth Hour while we were eating our food so we had a candle light dinner that was super romantic (without actually intending it)!

Sorry about the lighting of the photos for this post! It was really dark and my camera doesn't have a flash!
So on to the food! Bavarian was really nice to let us order whatever we wanted even though we had a really big group going & normally it'd be only the set menu option, so that was really GOOD!
Pretzel with butter! 
THE PRETZEL! My favourite starter! It's seriously perfect! Soft and warm with a hint of salt. YUMM!
Tasting platter! 

Double the tasting platter! 

This was the Bavarian Tasting platter which had the  Crispy Pork Belly, Haus Sausages, Schnitzel Sauerkraut, Red Cabbage, Creamy Mash, Granny Smith Apple Compote and Löwenbräu Bier Jus ($29). THE PORK BELLY WAS DELICIOUS!! And the gravy was wonderful as well! Definitely a dish I would recommend if you want to try a combination of different things! :D 
Pork Knuckle 

Double pork knuckle 
PORK KNUCKLE! Definitely a must!! And it was Saturday night so there was a special for half a roasted pork knuckle for $22! The pork knuckle was with lentil, apple and radish! Yummmm! Soooo good! Very tender and the lentil was so flavoursome! SO delicious and it wasn't as salty like the one from Lowenbrau! MUST TRY! 
THIS is another must - BEER! This was one of the fruit flavour beers and they're all so delicious! Lychee is my favourite!
