Cutler & Co @ Melbourne (Fitzroy), Australia

We started off with a great dinner on our first night and it continued on to our second night.

Cutler & Co is located in Fitzroy, north-east of central Melbourne.  We had our rental car with us so getting there was easy.  Again, there was no special holiday menu (which I was never a fan).   And of course, kids friendly, with kids menu too.

Love the high ceiling, the space and modern deco.

Tipo 00 @ Melbourne, Australia

Due to it was holiday seasons, I made reservations for Christmas Eve, eve of Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve almost a month in advance.

Our first dinner in Melbourne was at this small Italian restaurant on Little Bourke Street.  Not only do they welcome kids, they also served their regular menu on the 23rd. 🙂

They don’t have a big menu but they do very good dishes especially their pasta.

It is a small place and very popular so reservations is highly recommended.

Bali-Thai Restaurant @ I12 Katong

I went to a different outlet of Bali-Thai some time ago but didn’t like the experience and never tried again since.  But this outlet at I12 came highly recommended by my parents so we gave it a go and were very pleased with it.  It had become the kids’ favorite Thai restaurant.

Tasty skewers

Kids favourite – my son wanted a portion just for himself on our 2nd visit.IMG_9409 IMG_9406 IMG_9405 Mix & Match Meat & Noodle Set – choice of meat + a kind of noodle + a type of sauce.

Chicken chop seasoned well and juicy.  IMG_9410 Pad Thai & FishIMG_9408Chicken chop & Glass noodle with black pepper – very tasty and not too spicy.
