Welcome to Mon’s Adventures! I’m Monique and here you can find some answers about what this blog is about.

What’s in a name?
Originally “mon aventure”, which means my adventure in French. The “m0n” also refers to me – Mon! But now transitioning to Mon’s Adventure for something more memorable. Don’t forget to check out my other blogs monsadventure.tumblr.com and instagram.com/monsadventure!

What is it about?
I love food. I know you’re thinking, “Everyone does!” but I am that person that looks like I can’t eat much, then surprises all the waiters and waitresses all over Melbourne by ordering more.

I also love to write and tell stories. I find my reviews are at the same time telling a story and trying to make sure you share the experience. I enjoy finding new little places and I love sharing this journey with other passionate writers and business owners.

In addition to this, I have other blogs (Weekendnotes and Livlicious) about discovering everything there is to do in Melbourne/Victoria, including roadtrips. So, there will be updates on these other blogs and articles here and there.

Send me an email at monaventuremelb[at]gmail[dot]com, whether you want to meet up or talk about adventures!

My friend the.adventouriist also contributes her photography to the blog. Contact her at at the.adventouriist[at]gmail[dot]com.

    Hi Monique,
    We have just launched a new Third Wave Cafe in Prahran (in addition to our café in Port Melbourne), and would love you to come in and try our menu. I am more than happy to offer you and a friend breakfast or lunch on the house. We have a number of interesting dishes including Russian Specials, and American inspired BBQ.
    Our chef is the legendary Ryo Kitahara, a protégé of Iron Chef Sakai, and with nearly 70 menu options, there is plenty of choice. Alongside our extensive menu, we also serve sensational coffee!
    It sounds like you might enjoy our Crunchy Risotto Hash Brown, Noisette Croissant filled to the brim with smoked ham, tomatoes and swiss cheese, our Eggs Florentine and Benedict fusion, or perhaps a Texan Fry Up! Just let me know which day you would like to come in!

    Kind regards,

    Ph: 0435 891 944
