Free Saturday breakfast!

I’m not sure about your specific situation, but Saturday morning usually finds me tired and hungry from whatever nocturnal activities is I was involved in the previous evening (usually that doesn’t include a dazzling tale of sexual conquest). Now, to deal with the feelings of hunger, of lack of inertia, of slight dizziness you invariably experience the next day, the best thing is to go out and eat, but if you’re anything like me (you’re not) you’ll remember all the money you spent last night you shouldn’t have and feel bad about splashing out on a $18 breakfast at some joint when it’s probably not going to be that good even (FACT – you can get a $10 big breakfast at the espy on Sundays. This however does not help us on a Saturday morning).

So on a Saturday morning (afternoon) when you feel you need to eat but don’t want to spend the money, and would like to get out of the house, I have an answer! Prepare your feeble earth mind to receive wisdom of pan dimensional beings! Two words: Prahran Market. Curious? Read on. There are two areas of interest, one is the deli area, and the other is the meat hall (bad name I know, but blame Prahran council or whoever is in charge of that kind of shit). So the crux of the matter is that in both the deli and the meat hall all the different store holders are trying to compete by giving out free food which is designed to sway you into buying their products which are delicious (free is also delicious). Highlights include the fresh pasta shop where they cook up a bunch of freshly made ravioli or gnocchi, every single barbeque is a win (and sometimes there’s even grilled fish if you’re lucky) especially the organic ones that put out stuff like tomato and onion sausages.

So that’s the big secret, go to the Prahran market, do several laps of each area, and wear non descript clothing so the stall holders don’t notice that you keep on swooping on their food like cognitively advanced seagulls.

Enjoy 😀

PS Let me know if anyone actually does this. I’d love to know I wasn’t the only cheapskate.
