Brunch at Operator25

Brunch at Operator25

It was the first day Jo was free after getting back from a month in Western Australia and a beautiful lukewarm Melbourne day called for some Brunch, some planning and a general 'well, how the hell are you?!'.

LiLi had suffered a menacing illness over the holiday period and there was still a residual bit of that somethin' nasty leftover and so, to brighten her up a little, JoJo suggested a visit to café close to LiLi.

This is a short story of how we ended up at Operator25, scoffing Balinese pork and Matcha crumpets.

You know, JoJo and LiLi may never have stumbled across Orient East if it weren't for the extended invitation to join them for an eight course beer degustation - and how grateful they were for having found them this way.

Man. Do you know how long JoJo has been pestering LiLi to go to this place? FOREVER.

Jo and LiLi have a deep set appreciation for all steamed buns and dumpling-like foods. It was only natural really - they've both grown up with a fondness for these far east carby treats. Jo's mum would whip up a batch of Siopao (Filipino baozi) every once in a while and, LiLi? Well, weekly Yum Cha visits with her dad would spark the lasting relationship.
