Melbourne in a 2CV: pilotage à la française

Nans is 35 but looks six years younger, he wears a blue marinière and a moustache and not only is he a baker (‘Chouquette’, on Sydney Rd, has been running for four years) but he also runs Melbourne tours in his 2CV he called T1TINE (the ‘1’ because ‘TITINE’ was already taken. Scandalous).

Sweet French street-food in Melbourne

$5 only for homemade, generously spread and melted caramel dripping to the bottom of the cone to lick with (or without) your fingers. Or a flambéed Grand-Marnier crêpe. Setting fire to the food: sensational à la Bretonne.
