Le Taste Tour (Melb)

  1. Today was a rest day on the touring schedule and decided to treat the tastebuds rather than sights...
    Melb is known for their food delights so I rode to check out the hub of delicatessen pleasures - Queen Vic markets. :geek:

    Armed with loads of change and an empty stomach I wandered along the deli stalls; a) first lap to get a feel for the place, b) to stake out as many free taste tests as possible to save some $$:D

    The sights, colours, sounds, activity, smells.... SMELLS!.... Mouth watering :hungry: Even some interesting sights too ... Lol

    After the first lap & having seen what I wanted to try and where was cheapest, I went in for the kill...

    With $14 I got:
    - 1 banana & 1 apple,
    - 2 delectable hand made chocolates (cinnamon & dulce de leche)
    - 3 cheeses (from TAS, GOR & unknown),
    - Spanish Jamon Serrano
    - tastings of fresh fruit, dried fruits, other cheeses, dips, crackers, olives, and hams....

    Not bad to end up with a full belly :sneaky::smug: A true Spanish tapas merienda was savoured...

    This place is good for a half day out from everything to a first date, to simply come and watch the human-zoo go past.

    Bon apetit!!

    Yep, great place to visit, always got to the Polish Deli and get a couple of wedding sausages, very lean with out the fat content of salami or kabana
