Do you like free food on Fridays? Are you an RMIT International student? If your answer is yes to both of them, then come to the RMIT City campus on Fridays between 11:30am-2:30pm for some free food.Each week is a different theme. This week was chicken curry, which by the way didn’t taste good. The chicken was rubbery, the vegetables were frozen (ewww!!) and the rice was of a cheap quality. It was bought from the upstairs Caf. But the other time I was there, the Vietnamese rice paper rolls were just fine. It is on in the Student Union meeting room, down the hallway from the Student Union. If you don’t know you can ask at the front counter.
This is organized by the Student Union’s International Department.
I loved the decor. It was warm and very inviting (reminds you of Japan).The downside of this is that the restaurant is really cramped and I was elbowed twice when someone wanted to get by. The table was really small. Luckily there is outdoor areas and on a nice sunny day like today, you can sit outside. The staff here are very friendly and I donated all of my change into the jar for the Japanese Earthquake.
They are a vegan friendly cafe, offering most of their meals as vegetarian.
Now on to the dessert:
2) Choix Creperie- I had the AC/DC crepe ($8.50) and proper Green tea ($3.80 for one). The pot looked really big but it wasn’t filled all the way.
The crepe came without Ice cream. I like my sweet crepes to have ice cream. But the filling and the crepe made up for it. This fared better than the Pancake Parlour version of it.
They also have curry and sandwiches.
The downside of this is that there is too much music and it should be a bit quieter like Roule Galette. But I liked the dim lighting though.
