WIN 1 of 5 Double Passes to Taste of Melbourne 2011

Submitted by on August 28, 2011 – 8:51 am44 Comments

Another year has come around so quickly. As you may recall, last year I was so gutted I missed out on attending Taste of Melbourne but of course for good reason as I chose to lap it up in Japan and Philippines where I feasted instead. However, I’m gleefully excited about attending this year for the FIRST TIME being a Taste virgin and all – especially after reading posts and tweets from my fellow bloggers who had attended.  I’m preparing my loosely fitted outfit (trackies) as we speak. If I had no shame whatsoever, I’d rock up in a robe so my waistline has as much leeway as possible. It would be a sin to leave pekish.

Taste of Melbourne gives you the opportunity to try out some of Melbourne’s best eateries under one roof – some new, some old. I can see why it’s fast becoming one of Australia’s most popular events. Well, with so much kick ass food in one place, there should be reason to celebrate! Though I’ve eaten at most of the restaurants being showcased this year at least once, there is still an abundance of dishes I’ve yet to sink my teeth into. Though, I’d happily eat the brilliant crispy pig’s ears at The Kitchen Cat over and over again! I fell in love with the crispy pig’s ears at District Dining during a trip to Sydney which prompted a pig hunt across Melbourne in search of this very addictive dish that goes so suprisingly well with beer.
