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. ūüôā

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.

Can Majo, Barcelona

Our first day ended with a delicious¬†dinner at Can Majo, located next to the beach at La Barceloneta. ¬†It was not full the day we went but reservation is recommended. ¬†Also they don’t open early for dinner service.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThey also have an outdoor area but it was a bit chilly for us. ¬†Inside of the restaurant was lovely too.

This was a 2-person portion, didn’t realise it would be so big. ¬†We weren’t able to finish all BUT it was the best paella I ever had! So good that we didn’t bother to try paella elsewhere.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Dot Cod Seafood Restaurant & Oyster Bar @ Central, Hong Kong

Wasn’t easy to spot out the restaurant if you weren’t looking for it…located in the basement and entrance at the outside of Prince Building. ¬†Very helpful & friendly staff and most important of all, very fresh seafood & generous portion at a reasonable price.

They don’t have kids menu but my kids were happy with their pasta¬†IMG_5216


Don’t have a wide selection of oyster but nevertheless very fresh


Scallop with Ice Lettuce … first time having ice lettuce, very crunchy! ¬†IMG_5220

We were going to order two lobster bisque but their staff suggested we share and she was right, portion was big enough for sharing and we already ordered too much.


This was my favorite of the night…haven’t had these for ages


We were full by the time this came and we didn’t like cooking with cream sauce (forgot to ask before ordering) but mussels were fresh and just cooked.


The best part of this dessert was the candied apple…but I only got to have one bite of it.
