Robina has had an extension this year; it now boasts The Kitchens which has all sorts of foodie haunts like a greengrocer, butcher, cafés, cake shops, and restaurants. It opened a few weeks ago with the likes of George Calombaris along to spruik his Greek street food venue Jimmy Grants.
|chocolates/cakes/meats - they have it all|
Concrete is apparently ice cream! It is frozen custard that is set and scraped from a barrel, then you can add in whatever you fancy, or even go for a spiked version. I think I'll have to try that next time.
|look at this gorgeous piece of equipment|
I think this is a cold drip coffee maker, but to me it is a thing of beauty. It looks alchemical, mystical and magical.
|all the pretty things|
|how gorgeous is this|
|lots of sweet things|
|love the architecture here - so much curved beauty|

This tree was made by a team of 6 artisans over 8 weeks in Byron Bay. Each pelican was individually sculpted and hand-painted; and there are close to 600 of them. I wants one:=) - as Gollum would say.
I did have one issue with The Kitchens - it is a very long walk from the carpark where we were. I guess you can consider it walking off all the goodies you have just consumed. I do wonder about the upper level, as it is cavernous and obviously you have to head upstairs. Not sure how many people will bother to do that. Anyways, sis and I had a fun lunch together in an interesting spot.
|I adore pelicans, even wooden ones|
Merry Christmas everyone! or whatever version of holidays you celebrate :=)
