Being a self-proclaimed hipster wannabe the only thing all the cool kids do on Saturday mornings/afternoons is head on down to the Old Biscuit Mill in the trendy suburb of Woodstock.
With no further ado guess what I did on Saturday…. I am sucker for market food, and the Biscuit Mill is always a winner. The food and sweet treats are always great and will sure satisfy your every craving, from seafood to pizza, to breakfasts and gourmet sandwiches not forgetting fresh produce, wine cakes and even coconut water.
One bit of advice I can give you is come with cash things are not very cheap if you local, but they worth it and there is only one atm with a long queue, so come prepared.
After walking around the buzzing market getting enticed by the atmosphere and all the great looking food and smells, it is always tough deciding what to get. I wish they had a tasting platter with bits from every stall.
Being a creature of habit I ended up going for my Market food staple; a crispy ciabatta roll with marinated pork belly fresh tomato and rocket covered in a sweet onion relish and a touch of English mustard.(get in my belly).To finish it off with great coffee from origin now that’s a winning meal right there. I do have to try something new though but that I will leave for China. Right now I want to do all the things that I will miss, and that reminds me of home.
After devouring that yummy goodness we needed something sweet with only a tiny bit of stomach space left Lee Ann, and I decided to share a slice of chocolate cake after tasting a few wines. We had the nicest gluten free chocolate cake with raspberry jam and chocolate glaze icing. It was divine and just the right amount of sweetness.
As the market started to come to a close and the crowds started to thin out we sat and watched the mixed crowd of people listening to different accents chatting around us and the general positive vibe in the air. I could sit, and people watch for hours and never get bored. I enjoyed my afternoon as I haven’t been to the Mill in ages and the market always brings me a good sense of happiness.
Good food and good friends go hand in hand wherever you are in the world. I will defiantly recommend the Old Biscuit Mill if you have not been. If you have or like going to markets let me know other markets to try and what your favourite market food is.
Peace love and Happiness
