Parent month has sadly drawn to an end. For Charlie and me, it was a month full of laughter, day trips, free meals (so much more than that!) and fun with our loved ones after almost eight months of living away from home. During just one month, Charlie and I travelled with our parents to Sydney, the Great Ocean Road and Phillip Island, and, of course, the Yarra Valley... twice. Now I think I can say with some amount of confidence that I know a bit about the Yarra Valley. Or at least about its food options (since I still know little about wine, save for the coincidental occasion on which I pick up a scent that's actually in the ballpark of what I'm supposed to smell).

Been reading about some seriously good soft-shell crab burgers at Hammer & Tong 412 for some time now, and finally got around to popping by with Denise and Ed this past weekend. I anticipated a line since that's the theme for well-reviewed Melbourne cafes, but, nope. Right in to an empty four-top in front of the bar.

...But that didn't mean I was going to miss out on an authentic fix of the delicious comidas tipicas I've been craving from home. My former roommates and parents, Ed and Denise, are currently visiting and together with Chaz we headed to the Hispanic Fiesta on Johnston St around 3:30 pm this past Sunday, knowing quite well that walking freely could possibly be a bit too much to ask.

Yo – you a seafood eater? Then you better get yourself on down to the Sydney Fish Market, where coppin' cheap and fresh seafoods is all the rage. If you're going on a weekend, it's best to arrive early. The place will be teeming with eaters by lunch time, all craving a quick salt-water fix. Or freshwater, I guess. To me, it's all about shellfish.
