Convertible alleyway

This alleyway, it's actually a dead end alley, tucked between two buildings. It has been given a glory transformation compared to others that are normally used to hide the gigantic rubbish skips. Could not doubt the creativity of the man behind this cafe & bar named "CHUCKLE PARK".  It is located at Little Collins St, between Swanston St and Elizabeth St. The location provides convenience for lunch and dinner, and even a short stop over in between shopping sessions as it is so near to Bourke St Mall.

Yes, it is open space, thus allowing the natural sunlight to shine in. On top of this, we also do not need to worry about the coming chilly winter, it has got heater at every corner to keep us warm =) Plus you might be ordering some alcohol since it's a bar, and it will probably keeps you warm enough already.

Don't you love all the creativity being pour into the set up? 
Wooden walls and tables to have a vintage and cosy feel, yet being paired up with a steel truck as their cashier & kitchen, and the most unexpected flowers deco and St Mary statue on top.

Not forgetting the light bulbs on top, each light bulbs were locked into a glass bottle with plant and soil in it. I do wonder how they water the plants actually... hmm...

Enough of all the archi talks, another reason that drew my attention to try out is the first item of their menu - Pulled Pork Bun.

This is the only picture I have of the bun, was too hungry to take proper picture of the bun.

The bun is just to my liking, not too hard. It is served with coleslaw on top of the pulled pork. The coleslaw serving was so generous that I couldn't grab the whole bun intact, the coleslaw keeps dropping out. But the pulled pork was yummy, a tad dry but  yummy nonetheless!!

Bearing in mind that it only costs $9.50, this is definitely worth the value!
