Vue de monde, Melbourne, Australia
We've been off travelling the world, and eating a lot. It's nice to be back in Glasgow though - in the next few weeks we'll get back to full-steam blogging now we have our two weddings out of the way!
Here's a treat for you, the best meal I have ever eaten. We had some seriously amazing food while we were in Melbourne on our honeymoon/second wedding and lunch at Vue de monde took the cake in every aspect - food, service, views.

Looking at these pictures, I've totally sunk back into food-coma heaven. This meal was amazingly decadent, it was paced perfectly (to eat that much food you definitely need a lot of time and not to be rushed) and all the dishes had a huge amount of wow-factor. There were certain dishes I loved more than others, but I wouldn't say a single thing we ate was a let-down or disappointing.
I think it'll be a while before we eat that well again!
