In about 12 hours I'm leaving for Adelaide, but before then I have a birthday dinner for friends at a great little French brasserie, and hopefully getting a decent amount of sleep. Speaking of great little restaurants in Melbourne, I've been wondering for a while how many readers are actually from Melbourne? You see, I'm feeling a little lonesome here plugging away at this blog, watching the Sydney foodblogging community explode in size. Of the three I have listed in Melbourne, Esther has just announced her departure, and with his brand new baby, I'm not sure how much time Kitchen Hand will have for blogging! In any case, we both would like company. It's easy to set up a foodblog, you know!
But it's readers I'm also interested in. I have a number of little cafes and restaurants I've tried about which I've been considering writing brief reviews. But I know I've been guilty of clicking on to the next blog when I find a review of places in, say, San Diego or Seattle. Sure, they'd be a fantastic resource if/when I visit those places, but for me right now, limited in time and hungry for instant entertainment, they don't do it for me.
So, a large reason I would put up short reviews of places in Melbourne (such as the fabulous little French place tonight) would be if there are enough readers in Melbourne interested in such a thing. So, please drop a comment if you're a suave Melbournian, shivering through our winter. If you've never left a comment before, this is your chance (friends, family...you know who you are...!).
I leave you with a tempting box of Chocolatier chocolates my mum received for her birthday yesterday. I can only dream of getting a box of such quality chocolates with couverture imported from Belgium. But, they're all hers to enjoy.
