Foodie Corner – Taste of Melbourne 2014

I love me a food festival, so naturally I get pretty excited when Taste of Melbourne rolls around. This is my round up of this years event.

We hit the festival on day one, firstly because I couldn’t wait to get in there and try some amazing food, and secondly to try and beat the crowds. This year bubs was with us, so I knew it would be harder to make our way around with a stroller. It’s always difficult when the crowd is really big, and lets be honest everyone else hates the lady with a stroller, so this way (hopefully) we didn’t annoy too many people.

Foodie Corner – Sweets Special

647 Chapel Street
South Yarra Vic 3141
