    It has a great feel about the place, nice & comfortable for romantic dinners or with friends. They do cater for large groups. They have low Thai music playing in the backround which adds to the feel. Chairs are available as well as traditional padded cushions to sit on the floor. The service is fantastic & the prices are very resonable for the delicious food. The staff are very friendly.

    Favorite Dish: Grilled Marinated Chicken with Turmeric & Coriander roots - $13.50 (AUD). A beautiful dish that combines chicken marinated with coriander root, garlic, curry powder, turmeric. A great mix of flavours just makes you wanting more, best accompanied with coconut rice.

    According to the website, the San Churro history started in 1528 when Hernan Cortes brought the Aztec tradition of chocolate to Spain. It was so precious that only the monks were allowed to manufacture chocolate strictly for the Spanish aristocracy. The head monk, San Churro, witnessed many miracles of chocolate including the healing of the Queen of Spain & made it his life's work to spread the 'secret' of chocolate across Europe.

    The staff here are really friendly. The smell of the chocolate outside will bring you in off the street. The menu starts at $1.90 for single chocolates. There are also many drinks available including hot chocolate & milksharkes.

    9 stores in Victoria & more around Australia

    Favorite Dish: Chocolate Tapas, mmm so very good. A mixture of chocolate dips, spanish donuts, fine chocolates & ice cream $15 AUD. The milkshakes are also very good.

    The Prahran markets are great at all times. There are cafes here & the Essential Ingredient store which sells a lot of kitchen goods that are hard to find.

    The fruit stores here are a little expensive, even when they are on special at the end of the day. But the reason why I shop here is for the cheap meat thats on sale after 3pm on a Saturday.

    What to pay: $5.00 for a tray of chicken, fish, crabs, sausages plus there are many other deals

    in chapel street you can find "traffic light stipteasers", any kind of drunk, "look at my car" people and, the group I like more: the "hear at my car stereo" group... you can find people playing loudly a F1 GP tape, music or a PORN tape....
