A household name across Asia and Australia, it was a glorious day when DTF opened its doors in Melbourne. It has chosen to take up residence on the topmost level of the Emporium and the floor space is expansive. Even so, it has still chosen to adopt a strict seating system whereby diners don't get a table unless the whole group is there.

Nothing about this restaurant makes too much sense. But the food turned out to be good and heartwarming.
The name is strange, the décor is a bit kooky, and the music streams from a Youtube playlist.
As we chowed down on our stir fry and slurped our noodle soup, we tried to hypothesise on the rationale behind the odd name. Our most plausible theory was that perhaps these were Vietnamese owner / chefs who hoped to capture many of the tourists who frequent Lygon St by enticing them with the restaurant's kangaroo offerings...

The display cabinets were filled with shelves full of shiny gleaming sweet temptations. It wasn't even half past ten in the morning, yet I was already succumbing to my sugar cravings.
I bought a few to test and taste, including two GF cupcakes, which I was a bit surprised to see as a part of the selection. Of the three different treats that I chose, I found them all to be quite as expected. There wasn't one that tasted spectacularly memorable nor was there one that was particularly disappointing.
However, what are mention worthy were the friendly service and the convenient location.
