Japanese food, Stephen K Amos & Meetfresh

Meshiya Melbourne CBD

This is a few months overdue post. March / April every year is Melbourne's International Comedy Festival featuring comedians from all walks of life. And because Mr. C loves a good laugh, I bought us tickets to see Stephen K. Atmos, one of the few comedians that tickles Mr.C's funny bones.

Before Stephen K. Amos show, we went to Meshiya.The food was served hot, just the way I like it especially on an empty stomach. Had my usual Katsu Don - crumbed pork with egg and onion on top of rice. It wasn't the best Katsu Don I've had but it was still yum! Mr. C had some bento set that came with rice, beef, chicken and edamame.

Uni-mate Miss Meow introduced this eatery a few years back when we went for dinner before La Soiree. The food here is tasty and I reckon it is a good trait to not be too picky with ones food and one would be easily pleased.

After our dinner, we made our way to the Athenauem Theatre for the Stephen K Amos show. He is a British stand up comedian of Nigerian background. Snapped a few pictures before his show started. The theatre is really beautiful and rich in heritage with its intricate designs. Old theatres like this are well preserved and it's nice that the public has access when there are shows.

Stephen K Amos had his moments. Like most comedians, he regales the audience with his stories in a comedic way but I think when F bombs get thrown around almost once every few minutes, it gets a bit over the top and tacky to me. I don't get it why does saying the F word elicit laughter. It isn't a joke or something funny. It's just an expletive. An overused word. But the whole hall gets thrown into fits of laughter for some reasons unknown to me. Suffice to say, he isn't my cup of tea.

Finally, the show ended and being true Malaysians, despite the cold, we went to Meet Fresh for dessert. Mr. C isn't a big fan of desserts and sweet stuff but Meet Fresh somehow captures his fancy. The first time he had it was in Sydney few months back whilst we were there for Lee Hom's concert and he loved it! I think we had a bowl once each day.

Meet Fresh is a Taiwanese dessert shop that is similar to Snowflake in Malaysia.

So, he was a happy camper when Meet Fresh opened a shop in Melbourne. Many more happy nights of dessert for Mr. C! See how engrossed he is with his dessert that he ignores me snapping pictures of him? ;p
