Everyone's home and loving it! Lunch at Mina-no-ie

Ok ... first up I don't get Épatant! Who buys this shit? Maybe my friend P, but even he draws a bespoke line in the sand. Its good for an eye roll and a side-eye laugh, so have a cursory glance at the school lab displays and then sit down at Collingwood's newest eatery Mina-no-ie for a spot of lunch.

But be prepared to rub shoulders with Melbourne's peacocks and since its borderline Fitzroy, with an assorted array of candy coloured, chino clad beards with their impossibly good-haired girlfriends and ironic pendants.

The layout is great, coffee good, and this Miso soup (a cross between traditional Miso and a sweet minestrone) is amazing. M found it a tad on the sweet side, but I loved it. AND I don't usually do soup!!

And its served with 2 delicious pieces of Onigiri. The perfect lunch.

  1. haha, yeah, I had high hopes, but it is kind of ridiculous; an ax?
    mind you, I did buy a pair of sun-glasses there..

  2. No you didn't P!!! Let me guess ... cutler and gross ... which one?

  3. Miso minestrone??? OK, I'm trusting you on this one.

    Have you seen http://hipster-animals.tumblr.com/?

    1. Aaargh!! Hope you like it or my reputation is in tatters!! I love the hipster animals ... but I love this one even more: http://accidentalchinesehipsters.tumblr.com/

  4. Yep, cutler and gross. I went with some pretty safe ones (no surprise perhaps..), a transluscent brown frame, and stripy brown arms.
    There was a pair of green ones I was tempted by; another time.
