Fave Valley Things

Since I got a few people all excited about their favourite things to eat in the city I thought we could branch out to where I spend my days - The Valley! I work on Robertson St, so it's prime position for noms. I rarely go down to the mall cause it's dirty and I hate it, but there's this awesome little precinct up the top of the street where there's all the best eateries. Then there's James St on the other side of me, but since I'm not a coffee fiend, I rarely venture down there, and New Farm is just too far to walk in the summer, but now it's almost winter I could start to head down there for lunch. Here's what I love to eat!
  • 'Damned' pizza from Hell Pizza - it has avocado, camembert, cashews, spinach, sun-dried tomatoes, mushrooms, onions and pineapples. Holy. Moly.
  • Special Fried Rice from Wok Me - if you go there enough like me, you get a club card and they always give me vouchers for free bags of prawn crackers, so I only ever pay for prawn crackers every second time I go.
  • Mustard and Pickle Burger from Grill'd - I love pickles. My love for pickles will never die. In fact, I'm gonna go eat pickles right after I post this. Then I'm going to squirt mustard from the bottle straight into my mouth, cause that's how I roll baby.
  • Cheap lunches at RG - I like to go for the carbonara, cause I'm running an experiment to find the best carbonara in the world, then kill the chef, like in Once Upon a Time in Mexico. The carbonara at RG comes pretty close.
  • Chai latte at Coffee Club - Like I said, not much of a coffee drinker but I freaking love chai lattes.
  • Seriously cheap lunches and free soft drinks from the Cafe - I don't know what it's called but it's at the top of Robertson St, on Brunswick, and it's just a little dodgy cafe where they sell hot chips with awesome gravy, and great burgers. The other day I bought a burger and the guy said I could have a free soft drink. That is service.
  • Burritos and sangria from Montezumas - Who doesn't love Mexican? I go there specifically for the sangria, and the beautiful ladyboy behind the counter with the bee-hive hairdo. God...she is so beautiful. He is so beautiful. I don't know.
  • Blueberry muffins from 7-11 - They're light and delicious and fluffy and they're probably a million years old but I don't care.
  • Chicken avocado sandwiches from the train station cafe - they are cheap and nommy, and the lady behind the counter seems to know what you want before you even say it.
So what's your favourite stuff to eat in the Valley?


  1. SUPERBOWL (I really think they should start paying me a commission for how often I talk up their glory)

  2. I like going to the asian grocer in our very shitty looking China Town. Sometimes I get Pocky cravings. And the asian bakery when you walk through that tunnel thing from the train station toward mcwhirters, I forget what it's called but they have some very tasty and cute looking treats.

  3. Ohhhh pocky how I love thee. I haven't ventured into Chinatown much, I think I'd want someone who knows it to take me and introduce me to a few things.
    What's Superbowl? Whatever it is, I'm going there.
