and finally we followed my friend's advice - visited the cafe to try the octopus balls - they moved!!! I swear they did!!
when your desert is way too nice you always forget something important...
today I forgot to invite YOU ALL :) as I am not sharing...
~ Russian zefir (marshmallows) made out of fresh cherries and egg whites by Алёна Вишнёвая (price on application) - it is crazy tasty!
~ lobster tails with Venetian egg white cream by Oksana Newton ( price on application) - you will swallow your tongue
~ baskets with egg whites cream and strawberry jam by Oksana Newton (price on application) - you will swallow the rest what is left... because there will be no left-overs for tomorrow
I nicely mixed them all - the pictures.
no no no one to tag here - how do you not get it - there is just myself next to the cakes!.
it's been a whale.. I mean a while I have not published anything on our "lovely taste" pages - actually - since October last year... so this is my post to follow the tradition ...
Dosa Hut Caroline Springs restaurant has opened its doors on 8 August in #CarolineSprings pleasantly surprising the hungry visitors with the authentic South Indian and superbly made cuisine

took me a while to set this first shoot up: the chairs next to us were way too close and Ned did not understand what was required but he turned out to be a very good model after some 2 min training! plus Ned was very much surprised that he can be photographed looking at his own photos in his mobile :)
as to the food it was delish and very fresh...
we had dinner with Entertainment Book
it gives you 50% off your main - we fished and saladed the day for a combined dinner of $25 only.
and who cares who was drawing these ugly pictures on the walls...
do you want to dine with us?
with Elena Tretiakova Millinery at Foxey's Hangout.
lNow the grand finale or how we call it the “svbi “ followed just for my jaw to drop down and remain there for weeks . Firstly I have never seen so many male models in one place working as humble waiters , secondly :,the food was out of this world and who needs the third???
Thanking Elena Tretiakova Millinery for this invite and the day out to save my eyes from the pc ... my eyes thanked me gracefully as the views of the grape fields were so uninterrupted as well as our thoughts...
what’s our next traveling destination guys ? Right , it’s a secret but it’s already planned !!!
Elena Tretiakova Millinery at Sunnyridge Strawberry Farm.
Next destination : strawberry farm ... we celebrate the other day of peace , friendship and chewing gum
with Elena Tretiakova Millinery at Kapers Bistro & CafÃ.
· BonbeachThe morning start as we are taking a break from a computer screen today replacing it with greens ...
The Kapers cafe is located at the Patterson River Golf Club, Bonbeach... I should have listen to my friend as the first expression always matters... but I never resist to experiment... the result is as follows: I can cook better salmon and avocado salad at home... Add to this: better taste and better arrangement , better ingredients and better EVERYTHING! If you have to miss this place from your Entertainment Book please do - I would be afraid to try a bigger meal there... we thought the view will impress but the golfers were very slow and boring... I yelled 'kak ty? horosho?" only to see a slow head of one pace-loosing golfer turning into our direction.
the punch line: you would feel better listening to the radio rather than eating there. sad...
we were glad Dasha and Tosha were with us though enjoying the fresh air coming from the rolling golf hills...
added 68 new photos to the album: BTS: Dosa Hut Caroline Springs.
· We were very lucky to get invited to the Dosa Hut Caroline Springs Indian authentic cuisine opening night on August 08 2018 at 0600pm, a kind invite by one of the owners Deepti Alurkar
professional photos and review to follow
we had some pre-event drinks at the very welcoming house of Erkin Kalayciand Tugba Talia Caglayan, our media crew members who live near by - just 500 m from the restaurant. Was very glad to see Erkin again in a not working environment and we all head off to the place where we had to work (apart from trying this divine food) . We also opened a bottle of champagne to celebrate Erkin's recent editorials printed - so happy for this amazing family of highly artistic people whose house is a real reflection of their two creative souls - very humble but full of beautiful surprises!
We head off to the restaurant and looked like we just arrived on time... not a usual situation as the house was full at exactly 0600pm and the food was served right after! All on time and not the Indian way - 2 hours late - we all were there and our table was happy and full of laughter - was so glad to see Nadia Pleshkova, Peter Morris and Michelle Schembri-Lipscombe - really warm and joyful company..... professional review and photos are to follow ... please stay tuned !
Peter took us back to Erkin 's house after the event and we drove home safely - <3
Thanking all our crew who attended and thanking the chefs the waiters and the managers of Dosa Hut Caroline Springs for the kind invite together with their family and friends... we met lots of familiar faces and the food and drinks were all shared in cheerfully . Wishing to the place many years of prosperity and best customers always!
PS. one thing that surprised me the most was the pumpkin and coconuts covered in saffron next to the door way - and we kept discussing this for the entire evening... till the question "why" was kindly cleared for us by one of the managers.
Do you want to know why? Go there, eat , drink and ask yourself please!

Creating a new Dosa Culture in Australia
When it comes to Dosas, think no further than Dosa Hut. We’re the pioneers when it comes to bringing authentic South Indian food culture to Australia. Established in 2007, Dosa Hut was born out of a passion for food. Praveen Indukuri and Anil Kumar Karpurapu both came to Australia to study telecommunications. Being the foodies they were, they decided to bring alive their love for South Indian food with Dosa Hut, as there weren’t many places where one could get authentic South Indian food at that time. What started off as a foodie venture has now become an increasingly successful brand of quality Indian cuisine in Melbourne.
Dosa Hut is known for its authenticity when it comes to staying true to the spices, flavors and textures found in original South Indian cuisine. We are also known for serving quality food, at affordable prices. It is only because of these that it has become one of the most popular chains of South Indian restaurants in Melbourne. India is a land of many colors and flavors, and South Indian cuisine is the term used to collectively refer to flavors from Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh, Kerala and Karnataka. What makes South Indian food so distinct from the other Indian cuisines is its use of coconut, lentils and local vegetables like tamarind, snake gourd, plantain and ginger. Also you will notice the refreshing freshness, and lightness of the food – nourish yourself with fresh, wholesome food that isn’t too heavy on the stomach.
Seeped in the richness of South Indian culture, Dosa Hut appeals to a contemporary dining experience, with its casual ambience and friendly staff. With over 90 varieties of Dosas to choose from, innovation is the name of the game at Dosa Hut. Get ready to pamper your taste buds silly with a delicious spread from South Indian cuisine. But that’s not it. We also serve other popular Indian dishes like Biryani, Indo Chinese and Chaat, now, isn’t that such a delicious space to be in? So be it for the best biryani in Melbourne or the best dosa in Melbourne, you now know where to find the best South Indian restaurant in Melbourne. Dosa Hut is open for dine-in, pick-up and take away, and we also undertake catering orders for your special events too. We’re proud to say that Dosa Hut has created a special niche for South Indian food in Melbourne, Indo-Chinese, Biryani & Chaats, with restaurants in Clayton, Footscray, Roxburgh Park, CBD Melbourne, Tarneit, Harris Park, Brisbane, Springfield, & Point Cook.
Bohemian Rhapsody Club and Magazine was proudly covering the opening night for family and friends. Our media crew has done the perfect job on the night and we are keen to see the results ( media: Michelle Schembri-Lipscombe, Peter Morris and Nadia Pleshkova) Please stay tuned for the results! // Deepti Alurkar

as I spent 20 hours yesterday in front of the screen and still had so many things to finish I thought today: "stuff it all, I am going out!" the result was most unexpected
- healing and fair trade coffee at BOOSA ( so french so fresh so sweet so delicious so sunshine! https://www.youtube.com/watch… ) ... when we walked in the boy yelled out: "hey these girls here today for the first time... make sure they are treated like queens" .. and we were... coffee - 5/5, service - 5/5, the rest was our warm company
- our lunch stop : #SushiPlus Japanese in Bentleigh East Centre Road for absolutely delicious treat from my friend... thank you Oksana! all prepared so yum by real japanese people - two bento boxes - Oksana talked to the manager in pure japanese language with no accent! so japanese so restaurant...
highly recommend both places - it was a new discovery channel for me today!
thank you so much for the afternoon Oksana! I was spoiled!
I like my coffee and tubes to be served in style... what about you?..
...with finest puff pastry tubes filled generously with the cloud-like-softest italian cream ® and by Oksana Newton, international confectioner's secret recipe
it is one tender, divine and deliciously evil experience of self loving with a hidden panglossian belief that the result of the consumption will never appear on the consumer's hips which is wrong BUT WHO CARES!
it was an unexpected present today from the chef herself! god bless the chef!
One of my fav dinning locations from the Entertainment Book's half price offers : YaSouv Greek Street Food -
I love Greek street food : unfortunately can not eat it just watch it ! But the coffee was delicious ! Review to follow
they made it so generously and so tasty: softest and mouth melting lamb, salad and potatoes inside the souvlakis and their chips come with fetta and oregano on the top. The place is full of students who come here after local schools: MLC, Scotch and Trinty - it is vibrant and cool noisy . The coffees are good but I was not served a double espresso as I ordered - i was an ordinary short black ...
YOUR BOOK IS HERE
no matter how early my morning started someone obviously started it much much earlier than me...
"earlier than 0500am", - you ask?
"YES", - I will reply
I arrived at her residence at 0610am
She met me in the street outside her house and hugged me straight away - it was our first meeting!!! - I forgot how some Russians are - I felt so much warmth, so much "at home" and so I did not want to leave her place that smelled deliciously yummy on vanilla, caramel and freshly baked dough...
She prepared the forms of pastry and the bases were already in the boxes - they just needed to be filled up and ice-sugared and she did it right in front of me.. we chatted like good old friends - with some people it is like this - they know all about you in the first 5 min of your talk - no introduction was required...
her house was just waking up: a ginger four year old cat called Freddy (Fedya) and a boy Dan (Tosha) who both woke up yawning :)
my order was all packed...
last question I was asked:
"should I sticky tape your boxes or should I sticky tape your mouth?"
" hahhahha,no need for any, Oksana Newton, as I am not the one to eat them no matter what you sticky-tape... I tried them all before - such pretty memories - even when I was a student and just a couple of weeks ago..."
my 24 mini cakes- $36 plus I got much more in extras (rejected by the professional baker / confectioner)
photos will come up soon...
OKSANA, NO WORDS - I do not know what to admire more - Your personality or your cakes now :) - I can admire both without "more" though...
the joke was actually said before I drove to your house: "Natasha, is Oksana's husband's name Isaak and does she have an apple tree?"
mini cakes by Oksana Newton - done FRESH DELICIOUS by PROFESSIONAL CONFECTIONER with years of experience right to your high European standards! <3 enjoy - more photos to be uploaded soon...
EAT, SWEET, LOVE!
mini cakes by Oksana Newton - done FRESH DELICIOUS by PROFESSIONAL CONFECTIONER with years of experience right up to your high European standards! <3
shall I say more? NO
but I still will:
...they are creamy and the cream is soooooooo right - not too sweet, not too creamy, it is light and airy, TASTY / delicious to the point when your mouth says: 'bloody hell,what did you feed me with in the last years and years full of beetroot, noodles and cauliflower? I really deserved something divine like this!'
the dough is the lightest you can imagine - it melts in your mouth and is not felt at all (dangerous but true)
the jam inside the baskets under the cream is sour-sweet and located in the best possible place - where you do not expect to be a jam there is a jam but it says "hello" to your taste buds in the most polite way - delicately and gracefully, not overwhelming the taste of the whole cake! "
shall I comment on the peanut mini cake? ok.... crumbly and so fresh - again... I would not comment more - it requires to be tried
caramel nuts - honestly I have not tried them - but I will ask Alex tonight...
that's it folks!
NOW: wipe off your dripping saliva , PM Oskana and order - she only makes the cakes for personal use - no shops please :) she does not need advertising - I only do it because I liked her and what she does with all her heart... BEST!
I am coming back - I swear I forgot to photograph the ginger cat - NOTHING ELSE FOR!!
my second attempt today to make home made pelmeni...
ingredients of the filling:
what ever happened in the plate smelled nice - evening dinner for Alex I guess...
now I am getting closer and closer to the most important part of today... as it started very very very early... stay tuned... SURPRISE!

and that's the last quark and sunflower rye sandwich for today:
my experiment last night making this kind of pelmeni / dumplings ( that are also known as won-tons I guess ) worked just fine:
filling: turkey mince, onions (red and white), milk, millet, no salt salt and black pepper;
served in a bowl with yogurt, spoon, fork, knife and nothingness
the millet addition gave it a soft inside texture - they just had to
be boiled 2 min more than the usual meat-only ones.
we finished 0200am last night with only two of us, Serezha, teas and two dogs left at our house :)
thanking Mrs Abela (Michelle) for the sweets (some of them were savaged with wee hope in mind from the complete extinction as I noticed two blond russian birds were pecking at my "photo props" very vigorously... as you can notice one 4th color - caramel it is - is lost from the picture forever and can not be restored even by a heaviest photoshop ) :) :)
@OlgaKirk @NadiaPleshkova, how can I forgive you for that?
sometimes instead of OMG! you can say OMS! [for Oh My Soup!] as it will be the right exclamation re-mark
enoki and porcini mushrooms soup
yes another one
please circle the right answer
6. I am puzzled
answer (do not look it up unless you know the answer!):
#4 baby oyster and porcini mushrooms with potato dumplings soup
please also note:
there is only one thing left from this soup: dirty dishes and this lousy photo which you can not eat no mater what...
ok, there are two things left but they are useless anyway...

you should visit the place to decide for yourself if the food and service is good or not but I will just publish our rating and where you can buy the book to get your own 50% off your main:
atmosphere: 3/5 (cozy but was too noisy for me personally)
our bill for 2 mains , two coffees and a side salad which was superb btw
