There are memories like these which still have the power to trigger a twinge. They remind me of how carelessly and recklessly I destroyed something that could have been good. That is why, The European continues to serve as a bittersweet reminder of TOTGA and what could have been.
The European has become a Melbourne institution and it would be hard to imagine this end of the CBD without its omnipresent presence and its patrons crowding the sidewalks. There is a vast selection of wines and we shared half a bottle between us. The food menu is also quite extensive and we were spoilt for choice. On this occasion, we picked a few things to share and these pork belly parcels were a standout.
