Hi everyone.

It’s been ages since I RegularRandom‘ed a sweet treat. In the apartment complex where I live, a restaurant has opened up on the ground floor. The people who run it are just lovely. I have gotten to know them over the many months of fit out and met so many of the family – the husband and wife team, as well as his mum and dad, and they are such lovely people.

I popped in for a coffee on Melbourne Cup Day, waiting for my friend to pick me up, and spotted these muffins near the cash register. Yum! I vowed to come back for one at the end of the day. This is the result.


DiCasa_Beetroot&Chocolate-17It was delicious! The earthiness of the beetroot, combined with the sweet chocolate chips, just fabulous. Crispy on the edges and delightfully soft and sweet inside. And how exquisite is that beetroot chip on top? Like a flamenco dancerโ€™s skirt ๐Ÿ’ƒ!

The restaurant is called DiCasa, and you can find them here.

I do hope you enjoyed this RegularRandom today. Please join us, it’s lots of fun. Here’s how it works:

  • choose a subject or a scene
  • spend five minutes photographing it โ€“ no more!
  • try to not interfere with the subject, instead see it from many angles, look through something at it, change the light thatโ€™s hitting it
  • have fun!
  • tag your post #regularrandom and ping back to this post

I found the beautiful pink rice paper on the same day. We were wandering around Brunswick Street in Fitzroy, when we came across an unassuming stationery & paper goods store – what a heavenly place. I thought this paper would make a magical backdrop for the right subject and I think I was right!

The shop is called Kami and you can find it here.

PS how could I not make this post also my entry for this weekโ€™s weekly photo challenge: Temporary?!! It certainly was a fleeting moment of existence for this poor little muffin, but it served a good purpose lol.

  1. Beetroot and chocolate chips sound like the odd combo, but from your photos this muffin looks amazing, delectable. If I’m ever in the Brunswick area, I’ve got to swing by. From the looks of it, I could eat two at one go ๐Ÿ˜€

  2. Yum and double yum. I’ve made beetroot and chocolate cake, and it’s a heavenly combination. The muffin looks amazing and I like the little beetroot crisp too. ๐Ÿ™‚


I'd love to hear from you!
