Before the start of our day-trip to Philip Island, we needed to have some good breakfast!
Top Paddock has been the darling of breakfast places since it’s opening (Zomato, TripAdvisor, Yelp etc.), and so here we were!
We took Tram 75 from Flinders Street to East Richmond Station (Stop 11) and decided to take an easy stroll along the straight road past 4 tram stops to this place.
Having arrived around 7.50am, we were a bit early, but they had a section opened up for customers to wait. Strangely they open an hour later at 8am on weekends than on weekdays when they open at 7am.
We were put on waiting list for this very popular Japanese restaurant that only serves dinner omakase, and were delighted when we received a call the day before that there was a table available at 7.30pm! We were so excited and decided to give up having dinner at the Queen Victoria Winter Night Market.
It was an easy tram ride to Richmond, and though we arrived 30 minutes ahead of time, we were ushered to our table to rest in the warmth of the restaurant.
There were some specials available today, but we decided to just stick to the standard omakase meal of A$150.
