Cheap pies followed by Messina “soup” cans at The Royal Croquet Club (late post)

Dinkum Pies

Dinkum Pies is a bakery near the Block Arcade which sells both pies and pastries. A few weeks ago we decided to make use of a Scoopon (which is currently still available!) to get some cheap Dinkum pies for lunch. Regular pies are normally $5.50, but with this voucher you can get a regular pie and coffee for $4. Instead, the two of us opted to share the “Family Pack” voucher: $13 for 2 regular pies, 2 party pies, 2 mini sausage rolls and 2 hot drinks.

Korean Food at Oppa Kitchen

Oppa Kitchen is a relatively new addition to the many restaurants lining Swanston Street. The bright, modern decor of the restaurant is visible through the big glass windows, and the pink neon “Oppa” sign attracts the attention of passers-by. The menu on the window advertises Korean meals for lunch/dinner at an affordable price ($10 for a cold bi bim bap). When we visited Oppa for lunch, we found the food to be well-portioned and although it didn’t ‘wow’ us, we left the restaurant feeling satisfied.
