Bopha Devi

I booked Melissa and I in for a lunch sitting at Bopha Devi, Melbourne's Cambodian restaurant, at the Docklands. Part of the Melbourne Food and Wine Festival, we had the Express Lunch, which included two courses plus wine.

A restaurant I have always wanted to go to, we had pumpkin parcels and rice paper rolls for entree, and then I had the much loved Fish Amok for main. Coconut curry, served inside a banana leaf bowl, this dish revoked memories of Phnom Penh. Melissa has the Kari Khmer curry, which was also very good.

Not the most authentic decor, the walls were adorned with photos of Cambodia, and little Angkor motifs. No Angkor or Anchor beer though!

We the wandered around the shops of newly opened Harbourtown, under the defunct Southern Star - Melbourne's answer to the London Eye...which has been closed down indefinitely due to structural issues.

After watching the 2001 Hawthorn verse Port Adelaide Semi Final, in preparation of the season starting again next week, Melissa and I met Dianna and Tammny at the Vegie Bar for an amazing dinner.
