|G'day, little kangaroo plush animal|
After my first few days I am happy to say that I found an abundance of fresh quality meat, fruits, herbs and veggies straight from the farm as well as top class artisan cheese and wines here. This very fact and the fact that Australia is a melting pot with people from all over the planet that brought their culinary influence to the continent, certainly created something of a Mecca for foodies with flavors and tastes from all over the world. So I am happy to be able and discover the state of Victoria and hopefully blog a few nice photo stories about my trip.
My first photo story was in the Matilda Brewery in Melbourne, which is a nice little brewery that is making an awesome artisan brew, which, paired up with some real nice and refined bar food, is so much better then what I had as normal pub food ever. The prices are a bit steep but the real delicious fresh beer and the great tasting food will help you over your financial setback. So when in Melbourne, don't miss out on this little gem.

|The beer tasting "meter" - try six smaller glasses to get an overview on the variety of their beers|
|What beauties, right?|
|More then just plain and boring bar food, refined little snacks that will still your little hunger|
|Some fried Calamari|
|Yes, they also have normal size glasses (thanks god, I thought I was in Cologne)|
|For dessert step out, take a tour alongside the beach and discover some nice bakeries with a french pastry chef|
|Or simply dive into some fresh Italian Gelato... It's all good on my first day in Australia|
