I headed around the corner to Vans Cafe, one of my favourite places for brekky. My latte was a little weak but that was probably best considering I haven't had coffee in weeks. I tend to order the oddest thing on the menu and decided pretty quickly to go for the roast stuffed fig + gorgonzola + pancetta from their lunch menu.
Knew it was going to be pretty, and it was :)
One fig was stuffed with gorgonzola and the other was red, springy and juicy, both roasted to perfection.
The stuffed fig was oozing cheesy goodness. The salty pancetta was half-crispy-half-soft and I thought that was a really nice touch.
The other fig was sweet, with a slight zingy-ness and it was a joy to crunch on the tiny seeds.
Together with the fennel fronds, coriander and micro herbs, they held a party in my mouth ;)
The atmosphere was very pleasant, with the air filled with laughter and lively chatter.
Lunch was followed by a bit of exploring...
And on the way home, a quick stop at a much-loved spot.
A few hours later, it was time for the customary Chinese New Year eve reunion dinner...
And to top it all off, fresh typewriter ink arrived today :)
I always wish for fabulous days and occasionally, I get an epic one!
