On Saturday night I took Adam to Melba at the Langham Hotel to celebrate our 6 months together. Having heard good things about the top-notch buffet restaurant from my old workmate Kim, we were excited about dining there after booking a table for the pre-theatre session at 17:30 because the proper dinner session was booked out. Prior to dinner, however, Adam had to vote in the federal election so we drove all the way back to Keilor Downs after his shift. We knew that my his vote was hella unlikely to cause a massive swing to the-party-that-he-voted-for in his safe Labor seat but it was the principle that counted right? We then went back to his house to change for dinner before driving back to the city. Anyway, the photos:
More seafood!As much as we would’ve loved to take more photos of food, we decided that enough was enough because 1) we only had 2 hours to eat before they shooed us away for the next session, 2) we had to fit eating in the 2 hour timeslot somehow and 3) we were looking like idiots taking photos of food.
So we stopped.
Until we got to dessert, that is .
Adam prefers his bloody ice cream and gummy bears to the fancy desserts. Pfff, trust
Adam with his ‘toys’! Haha this photo just cracks me up
Overall, a great dining experience was had by the two of us. We would’ve loved to stay there much longer to sample the entire buffet but oh well, maybe next time. Because it was an all-you-can-eat joint, the food obviously wasn’t up to Teague Ezard/Neil Perry standards but it was of good standard for a buffet restaurant. Definitely better than bloody Foodstar and their cheapo cafeteria-style food[sic]!
