Snacking with a difference

I am an avid snacker. It's a very bad habit that I have acquired since I was a kid. I snack between meals and this drives my mum mad! The older I get the hungrier I seem. I do not believe in diets, except for the sea-food diet which I am an avid fan of - when I "sea" food, I eat it. Hahaha!

In a city like Melbourne, one is spoilt for choice. A snacker like myself has a vast amount of different sorts of goodies to choose from - from healthy options like sushi rolls for $2.00, a slice of pizza for $1.00, or an oh-so-naughty Krispy Kreme donut.

One of my favourite places to go to when I feel like snacking is the David Jones Food Hall. The place caters to a slightly different clientele - the sort who likes snacking on a tail of lobster and half a dozen oysters at 3:00pm. But don't be fooled by the seeming upper class feel of the place, for David Jones Food Hall has a lot of very affordable goodies available to everyday working people like you and moi.

My favourite before dinner snack, a strawberry-topped Evia Vanilla Yoghurt for $5.50

A wide selection of fresh salads, for very reasonable prices!

The freshest seafood - look at the size of the oysters and lobsters!

Different yoghurt fruit toppings!

At the Butcher section - lamb chops, steaks, sausages, the works!

Different flavoured meat pies at the Delicatessen. My favourite is Steak Pepper Pie!

Nuts about nuts!

A wide variety for wine connoisseurs!

I love couscous. My favourite is the Pumpkin. Yummers!

Every beer brew from every country, take your pick!
