Anyway, we went for ramen at Kokoro Ramen and dessert at Passionflower last week! This ramen place is seriously too cool. There are SO many options, I haven't seen so many options for ramen. You can't go wrong with picking any of them. There are different types of broth you can choose from (read the 'flavour notes' in the menu). I chose the Hakodate shio ramen, which has a slice of pork belly and the broth is chicken and seafood. They also hand-make the noodles too. Quite authentic, and relatively cheap for a meal in Melbourne!

Then we (or maybe I) went a little crazy for dessert at Passionflower. I shared waffles with my YV AND I got myself a plate of chocolate banana crepes... Don't worry, the three of them ate like one crepe and I ate the other one. WHATEVER, please don't make feel guilty, dessert is my weak spot.
When we walked into the cafe, I could immediately smell an aroma of waffles and I was getting giddy about it. "THEY HAVE WAFFLES?!?!" and knew I just had to have some waffles. They were crunchy and so good, especially with the hot chocolate fudge sauce and the ice cream.
YM and her boyfriend had the Secret treasure crepes. On your left, you have green tea ice cream and on your right it is pandan ice cream. Well, for starters, I can already make some pretty darn good green tea ice cream, but I'll still commend them for getting it right with enough matcha flavour. But on the other hand, the pandan ice cream was reeeeally good. YM's boyfriend said to me a while ago that pandan ice cream should be my next ice cream mission. For those of you who may not know what pandan is, it is a plant used predominantly in South-East Asian cuisine. For Malaysians, we have it with chicken, sweets like pandan chiffon cake etc. But, I've never tried pandan ice cream.I loved Passionflower's pandan ice cream! Highly recommended. There's also other interesting ice cream flavours like black sesame, lychee, red bean and durian. Out of all those, I would clearly never eat durian flavoured. Yes friends, I'm a Malaysian and I despise durian. Any other fellow Malaysians would like to agree on that?
