THE LAUNCH PARTY

+++++++++++++++++++++

The Matcha Mylkbar doors have officially opened at 72 Acland St!

Matcha Mylkbar

Is it Australia’s first Matcha cafe? .. YES. Is it also 100% vegan? YES.. Does that mean there’s not poached egg option for breakfast?.. NO. Featuring our long-awaited vegan eggs, mushroom lattes, longevity bowls, raw treats, smoothies in skull cups… we’re finally open and we’re DYING to meet YOU!

Let’s get to the nitty-gritty now – what happened at the launch party? Nip slips, who-wore-it-betters, duct-taped high heel straps, suit & ties, red carpets and paparazzi? You’d be surprised to hear that there was actually NONE of that- purely because we’re in St Kilda, not Hollywood, and we aren’t THAT kind of awesome. We did get to share our night with some beautiful, amazingly supportive friends of ours though, and in true fashion we thought that it was appropriate to document some of their running thoughts for the night. We asked them some questions about some of the hottest topics, and here’s what they had to say;

Joshua Gibson & Attil Filippelli

Joshua Gibson // Hawthorn Football Club Attil Filippelli // Co-owner of Matcha Mylkbar (and Brighton Schoolhouse, Il Fornaio, The Last Piece)

If you could be any vegetable, which one would you be and why?

Josh: “Kale. Because it’s a superfood and everyone’s loving me at the minute- I’m the new hot thing. You can have me for breakfast lunch and dinner”

Attil: ” Capsicum. Because I’m oddly shaped.” Joshua: “And a capsicum looks a lot better when you slice the sides of them off…” *insert bromance chuckling*

Nic Davidson is our papa and he’s quite ethnically diverse, what nationality do you think he is?

Joshua: South Sudan

Attil: Zimbabwe (is business partners with Nic…)

Selby / Carrot

Selby // Carrot

What does a day in the life of a carrot look like?

“Carrots are pretty relaxed and easy going. We wake up hanging around some vegetables. My best vegetable friend is a beetroot but he never turnips. Apartment from that I slowly save the world and save peoples eyesight. It’s a tough job but I’m pretty good at it.”

If you could be any vegetable, which one would you be and why?

“Sweet potato. Cause everyone loves sweet potato- they can be baked, steamed, fried… But that’s really boring!!!”

Grace, Julia & Co.

If you could be any vegetable, which one would you be and why?

Grace: Does potato count? If so I’d be a potato because they’re amazing. If not a potato I’d be a broccoli.. cause like potatoes probably have to be the worst vegetable for you and broccoli the best.

Julia: Corn. Cause I’m corny?

Who else was there? It felt like the whole of Melbourne was over to eat, take photos, eat more, take more photos and just have a bloody good time with us! See who how many people you can name… ready, set, GO!
