Met up with an old family friend who brought us out to lunch in Williamstown which isn’t that far from Melbourne city, via West Gate bridge.
Lovely little town near the waters, with many sailing boats moored. We are at the Anchorage Restaurant. One of the waiters, George, really friendly and helpful, and have a great sense of humour, informed us that they now have a new executive chef, hence a new menu. He highly recommended the Fried broccoli. I say, don’t be deceived by its name. It’s battered lightly and air-fried, acompanying it is a slightly spicy tangy sauce. Really lovely! We also had a smoked and cured salmon canapés, and a dish of scallop and chicken dumplings. All of these were just the sharing platters.
Lovely little dining spot right next to the water, and with such good weather, we could even see Melbourne in a distance.
After that, our friend dropped us off at Queen Victoria Market (QVM) as he had to return home for another function in the evening. Even though the QVM was closed (they close on Mondays and Wednesdays), we took the free city tram and got off just a stop later at Melbourne Central, spending the 4-5 hours getting acquainted with the area. We took the tram back the way we came, finally getting in at 7:30pm.
The sun finally sets at around 8pm.
I’m so tired now… Goodnight!
