Donny Benét Interview

It’s always great to go to a show and organize a quick interview with the person you’re seeing that night. This nights artist I chatted to the man of groove and pretty rad bass talent Donny Benét outside the Northcote social club.

We talked about shaving, the latest single, releasing his next album and when he’ll be in Melbourne town next.

Can’t watch rage because it’s daylight or during the week? It’s okay, just watch the closest thing. The digital video of his latest single Konichiwa.

Get the funk and be Funky.

Queen Victoria Night Markets

Night Market 3So where’s the best way to spend way to spend with friends and family? Well! Let me tell you this is a staple of Melbourne if you haven’t been or if you are just checking this out to see the amazing place that Melbourne can be. Look no further then the Queen Victoria night Markets.

It’s somewhere where I usually end up a few times during the summer (even winter). This time was spent with Friends, Girlfriend (who would’ve thought) And then there was my sister. All great friends and people.

The Queen victoria markets have been around for as long as I’ve been around. Well longer in fact and has always been an amazement for food and cheap shirts and 10 dollar aviator sunglasses. Not to mention the staple of hot jam doughnuts. This was just the start of the amazing food that exists within these markets during a weekly basis.

But since about 2012 has been a yearly staple in my life. Apparently in it’s 19th year as you can see has no chance of slowing down.

This is how the markets are the hustle and bustle and great times. If you want to find some of the best food in Melbourne while enjoying a Pimms or one or a sangria from one of the many sangria stands this is where it is.

It has it all. You want pasta. It’s got it. You want a paella it’s there! You want a pulled pork or fried chicken burger made from the softest bread that is used to make dumplings from the amazing Wonderbao well hot damn! it’s also there. Which is the way I decided to go tonight. But there is every type of delicacy you feel like from around the world. It’s there…

I decided to go for the fried chicken wonderbao burger. With the softest tastiest bread in the world. It is an amazing feast. I remember getting their mini open dumplings from the noodle markets a few months ago in  and I had to come back for more. They are somewhere I tend to get into while out on market nights.

Simple and delicious! That’s all I had to say I mean you can get paella at any market souvlaki at any market. It’s all there! The food is so amazing though. These were so damn tasty to a delicious experience none the less the bread wonderbao makes in my opinion is second to none soft, fluffy, succulent tastes amazing as a steamed bun but to make a burger life can’t get much better. As I did enjoy the Gua Bao that they make but this is next level. If you want the softest succulent tasting food in the world in a larger form then look no further. Served which chips to which you can take or leave. To be honest it’s all about the burger.

It’s amazing the food you can get from here though. It’s all world class and if you want a one stop place for some great Melbourne food look no further the Queen Victoria Night markets really does have it.

Not to mention they are so successful and the weather lately in Melbourne has been so nice. Today with a perfect 30 degrees Melbourne life doesn’t get better then this.
