  • Ferrari 488 Spider Launch

    The World Loves Melbourne imbibed the exclusive spectacular Ferrari 488 Spider launch in Melbourne. This was very first appearance in Australia following the premiere at the Frankfurt International Motor Show. Sexy in the extreme, we succumbed to the allure of the Ferrari 488 Spider. The Ferrari 488 Spider is the latest chapter in Maranello’s ongoing history of open-top V8 sports cars, a story that started with the targa-top version of the 308 GTB - the immortal 308 GTS - and which ultimately resulted in the full convertible Spider architecture.

    Third Wave Cafe in Prahran

    Third Wave is a unique cafe in Prahran that offers Russian and American style cuisine to cater for a wide range of tastes. We journeyed to Third Wave on a fine Saturday morning and enjoyed a complimentary meal. The fit out is modern and the location easily accessible next to the market carpark in Prahran. Third Wave also boasts another restaurant in Port Melbourne.

    With a large window frontage Third Wave cafe is a popular place to chill and read the paper while enjoying a meal.

     

    The coffee here is excellent with 5 Senses being the coffee of choice... Or hot chocolate if you like.

     

    Let's cut to the chase. For mine the pick of the meals at Third Wave is their ribs!  I like some spice in my ribs and Third Wave delivers. The Spicy Beef Ribs were spicier than expected and the meat was "melting off the bone" and tender. Smoky flavours dominated American style. The ribs are served on a bed of golden chips with Slaw.

    We enjoyed both the Pork and Beef ribs. The kids also enjoyed this rib fest. Third Wave supplies a couple of sauces on the side which we took advantage of...

     

    Spicy Ratatouille Baked Eggs were a fair choice featuring a slightly spicy mix of eggplant, zucchini, red peppers, tomatoes, Herbes de Provence and other tasty morsels baked with authentic Spanish chorizo and 2 free range eggs. Topped with Asiago cheese and served with toasted Ciabatta bread.

     

    Then it was on to the Russian options... Cherry cheese blintzes. This is like a Russian pancake. We throw to Wikipedia for enlightenment - 

    "Traditional Russian blintzes are made with yeasted batter, which is left to rise and then diluted with cold or boiling water or milk. When diluted with boiling water, they are referred to as zavarniye blini. The blini are then baked in a traditional Russian oven. The process of cooking blini is still referred to as baking in Russian, even though these days they are universally pan-fried, like pancakes.[citation needed] French crêpes made from unyeasted batter (usually made of flour, milk, and eggs) are also common in Russia, where they are called blinchiki. All kinds of flour may be used for making blini: from wheat and buckwheat to oatmeal and millet, although wheat is currently the most popular.
    Blintzes were popularized in the United States by Jewish immigrants who used them in Jewish cuisine. While not part of any specific religious rite in Judaism, blintzes that are stuffed with a cheese filling and then fried in oil are served on holidays such as Chanukah (as oil played a pivotal role in the miracle of the Chanukah story) and Shavuot (when dairy dishes are traditionally served within the Ashkenazi minhag)."
    So a Russian crepe... We found them tasty and something different to usual breakfast options. Compared to the ribs the blintzes are a lighter meal.

     

    We bumped into fellow blogger friends from Melbourne Sensory at Third Wave so it was eat, drink, and photobomb together. Nikon and Canon.

    Third Wave is keen to please (notably owner Greg) and offers a wide ranging menu and staff are enthusiastic.
