Queen Victoria Market, Melbourne
I have to quickly post all the photos for my recent trip to Melbourne since my memory still fresh. I just realized that i still have many photos for my trip to Shanghai and Penang have yet to update..because lacking of time..Before i go to Melbourne, i saw Honey Bee Sweet posted her trip to Melbourne and she highly recommended me to visit Queen Victoria market..As a food blogger, i like to visit market more than those departmental store nowadays ^_^
This is a must-visit place in Melbourne, so many things to see and so many foods to eat!!
Queen Victoria Market is just located in the city, we just took public transport- by tram and walk about 5mins to get there from the tram stop at Central station.
Fruits and vegetables section
My 1st time tried this fresh fig, the taste was quite nice..
The Deli section
Helena also suggested me to buy this pashmak persian fairy floss 波斯棉花糖（开心果口味）
. The price in Victoria market was cheaper than their online sale, AUD 11.95 per pack, i bought a Pistachio flavour.
The texture of this fairy floss is much lighter than those candy floss we could find here..simply yummy!
Seafood, poultry and meat section
Ready marinate and seasonings foods, so many variation..
This was how they presented minced meat, so cute!
There is another hall which selling those souvenirs, clothing, phone accessories, baking items & etc..Something like our pasar malam here..I did not buy anything, after draftly calculated price x 3, hehehe..
Honey Bee Sweet also suggested me to visit this stall selling cheap kitchenware and baking items..
this pot is cheap but too heavy to carry back home...
I bought few of these red ramekins..
Look out this L shed sign if you want to find this stall..
There was an Asian market located at just beside of this market. They sell a very complete selection of Asian ingredients..from lemongrass, curry leaves, lime, hae bi (dried shrimps ), tofu & etc. I even noticed they also selling the daun Kadok which i seem could not easily find in the market in my place here^_^
I also noticed they selling this dark caramel soy sauce that i usually use ^_^ Maybe the owner came from Malaysia?
So actually we can cook up a good Asian meal in Melbourne too!
Delicatessens section- you can find a lot of yummy foods here
roast chicken stall
very refreshing fruit juices stall..
French fried with chicken sauce bought from roast chicken stall, not bad!
I love this Borek, crispy skin and yummy spinach with cheese. I must learn how to make this at home soon.
Bought this sausage / Bratwurst and bun for breakfast, nice too..
