Australian Ham and Avocado Baguette



I had baguette for breakfast at the same cafe for 3 times during my visit to Melbourne, because i simply like to enjoy baguette..Eventhough my hubby found there is nothing special on this baguette served at this cafe..After coming back home, i immediately prepare this baguette for a quick lunch..

This was the Baguette cafe that i visited, it is located just beside South Yarra train station..

Ham and Avocado baguette at AUD 7 + coffee AUD 3 = AUD 10... after converted, quite expensive huh..actually everything in Melbourne is very expensive after converted to RM..

I have noticed that they topped the baguette with mustard and a lot of herbs and spices, so i also bought a bottle back home, this is what i got home..

Sonia, you mentioned Australia, I must quick quick drop by to see what's interesting here, haha! 1st time of seeing Chardonnay mustard. A very special mustard.Hmmm, next time when I go to Hunter Valley(famous winery in New South Wales), I must get myself some special flavoured mustard. We usually will get ourselves cheese & wine but haven't paid much attention to some wine flavoured mustard. Thanks for sharing huh!

Ann@Anncoo Journal said...

WendyinKK @ Table for 2..... or more said...

Aiyor, don't convert la. Like that sure die, sure everything expensive.
Blame it on our low currency.
White wine mustard... that's a good buy. I've not seen that here.

My Little Space said...

Love the mustard you bought. I should have remind you to get the pickled horse radish which you can hardly find it here. Pickled horse radish is perfect for anything especially for sandwiches & burger.

Little Corner of Mine said...

You must loved baguette so much that you even made it at home. I am like your hubby, I don't think it's special and won't eat it if I have a choice. :P

Shu Han said...

I love avocado! it's so creamy it makes a perfect helathy substitute for mayo!

Angie's Recipes said...

That's a mouthwatering sandwich!

Nami | Just One Cookbook said...

Getting hungry by looking at your delicious sandwich! White Wine Mustard? Sounds REALLY delicious!

noobcook said...

I think the mustard makes it really delicious, and it is much cheaper to make at home :)

tigerfish said...

I like good fresh baguette - the only problem is that the hard crust sometimes "cut" my lips :O

Cathleen said...

Oh yum! I've just gotten into putting avocado into sandwiches. This looks scrumptious!
