MELBOURNE! Good Times Milk Bar: It would be rude not to have a good time


Check out this feast!

So let me (Christina) start by saying the only bad thing about Good Times Milk Bar is that I don't live close to it. I mean, give me tacos, duck poke, potato gems, and possibly the greatest salted chocolate chip hotcakes you will ever taste. I know, big call. On The Chopping Board (OTCB) were invited to Good Times Milk Bar and we were met with open arms from the staff.

What a counter!

When you walk into the corner store in Bentleigh you'll want to whip your phone out straight away because this pink hub needs to be on Instagram. It captures the old-school style of a milk bar with cartoon pictures of ice cream and a pastel colour palette.

Prana Chai Latte - $5

As usual, I like to ask what the waitress recommends on the menu. I started with a 'Prana Chai Latte' with soy milk. It's already a thumbs up because it wasn't the sugar syrup filled chai a lot of places serve. Look at all of the goodness in those leaves!

Chicken Poblano Taco - $18

Now, let's get to what we all came here for - the food. To begin our feast we shared the 'Chicken Poblano Taco', which included chicken, good-slaw, avo-cream, lime, coriander and Smokin J's hot sauce. I'm usually a fish taco girl when ordering the Mexican delight because I often find chicken can be a little dry. However, this shredded chicken taco was great, and that hot sauce, where can I buy a bottle of it? The sauce pulled all the elements together to create a bloody good taco!

Duck Poke - $19

Can you see we tried to stay a little healthy with the poke? The 'Duck Poke' was filled with all of the superfoods of today, black rice, avocado, edamame, cucumber, seaweed salad, radish, wasabi kewpie, and nori crisps. The duck was cooked to perfection, as you can tell in the photo. The poke was packed with flavour and the subtle taste of wasabi kewpie made us realise this was not your average poke bowl.

Salted Choc Chip Cookie Hotcakes - $18

Okay. How do I begin? The. Best. Hotcakes. Yes, that pretty much sums it up. Let's just go through the ingredients in the 'Salted Choc Chip Cookie Hotcakes'; choc-orange maple ganache, golden poached pear, double-cream, meringue crumb and berries. The mix of textures is what makes a dessert, the crunch of the choc chip as you take the first bite paired with the smooth cream and crumble of the meringue. It was honestly a sweet tooth's dream come true. 

Potato Gems - $9

So it's safe to say, we enjoyed our time at Good Times Milk Bar. The staff, the interior, and the beautiful food created a great dining experience, one that we would highly recommend you to experience. Whether it be for brunch on the weekend or lunch during the week, you're guaranteed to have a good time...

Plus! Good Times Milk Bar has just released its new Spring menu! Here's a quick preview, the team has created a fresh spin on the hotcakes - house baked pavlova, passion fruit, strawberries & double cream, pink chocolate shards & berry coulis. They also have added to their amazing lunch menu - a Kale Caeser salad, lamb tacos and a mushroom burger. So... I kind of want to head back there already!


Mushroom Burger
