What's For Lunch?

It's been great to be back in town. Although spoilt for choice with every cuisine covered, it's still difficult to find a place that's good and fast. Due to a pretty hectic workload, I tend to head to the same places each lunchtime. A favourite of mine is the Postal Hall. Excellent customer service and coffee is backed up with some great food. Working out in the suburbs for a few years, it was surprising and a guarantee that my business would return, when the owner still recognised me. With some brisk Melbourne days they've put on 2 soups a day which taste just like home made. The following two are a Beef and Chickpea, and Chicken Meatball (The dodgy camera phone just don't do them justice.) While a little pricey at $9.50 (During the especially cold days they'd sell out!), the hearty taste and variety of small breads to tip -including a great walnut one- certainly warms the belly. Beetroot and Leek and Moroccan Chicken are some of the others that make the rotation, and while the former seemed a bit of an odd combination, I certainly wasn't disappointed. (none made it on the suit either!) A great little touch are the large napkins that are provided, as there's nothing's worse than spilling some food only to have a scrawny tissue-paper thin napkin that's more suited to drying a single snowflake. If you have any favourite lunchtime spots, it would be great to hear of them!

  1. Hi Jonno!

    Glad to have some contributions, the soups indeed look hearty and I can imagine they'd quickly if you happen to rock up a tad late. How's work treating you? Hope you're well!
