Day 2: Back at CBD - Moomba Festival & Dion

Arrived back in CBD right and off we went to the Moomba Festival, which is Australia's largest community festival, that runs from the 6th to 9th of March.

Fancy a game?

There were many food stalls!!! But no.....I'm saving my tummy for Greek food! 

You might not be able to see it but there were a large number of people seated on the other side of the river on the grass.

Wanted to grab dinner at Stalactites but the queue was super long, so we entered another Greek restaurant nearby - Dion~

Address: 205-207 Lonsdale Street (between Russell and Swanston Streets Melbourne VIC 3000

The owner was super friendly and the service was good~

We ordered the Tarama dip (Fish roe blended with fresh lemon juice & olive oil) (AUD7.50)

Pita bread (AUD2/ serving)

Omg~ it's the first time I had Greek food and it was DELICIOUS!!!! While I don't like thick bread, the pita bread went so well with the tarama dip!!! *salivates*

Vegetarian Mousaka which is a traditional Greek recipe of eggplant, potato, zucchini & capsicum layers topped with béchamel (AUD22)

Looks like lasagna and tasted super good! :D

Dion's seafood saganaki, which is made up of a pan fried selection of fillet of fish, prawns, calamari, & mussels in fresh tomato sauce & melted mild chilli feta (AUD36.50)

Had to order this because I absolutely love seafood and this is the best dish of the night!!! Delectable~!!!! <3

After this meal, I 100% fell in love with Greek food~ why hadn't I discover you sooner?

I need to know where I can get good Greek food in Malaysia!

We just finished dinner and was on the tram when it was around 9.30pm and we managed to catch the fireworks from the Moomba Festival from the tram.

 A great end to the day~ :D
