Last week I had some friends from Newcastle down in Melbourne on holiday.
They were celebrating their 6th (SIX!!) year anniversary, and luckily for me, they made time to hang out while they were here.
My friend C is awesome.
We have been friends since I first moved to Newcastle from Sydney
We both have so much in common, and are obsessed with American TV shows and culture.

I had heard about Misty's Diner many months ago - but I didn't know of anyone who I thought suited to eat at such an establishment. When I heard C was in town I knew it was perfect for us.
Dragging her (very eager) partner NJ along for the ride we booked in last Thursday night for what was sure to be the sugar and carb overload of the century.
Yes. So Much Yes.
Dr Pepper is my favourite "Soda" of all time.
Lucky for me, my local Coles sells it, so I went with the Cherry Dr Pepper which is approximately 1000 times more delicious than the regular.
I also discovered a new fav [once a year] food.
Jalepeno Poppers - Jalepenos, hollowed out, filled with cheese then breaded and fried.
Oh My God.
Party in your mouth
[and no, not spicy - unfortunately]
The Vegie "Carb Coma"
This is where your diet goes to die.
Potato Mashies, Veggie Bites, Cheese Sticks, Chilli Fries and Fried Mushrooms.
Yeah, I ditched my vegetarianism for one of these*.
Served with pickles on the side, baby burgers with meat, cheese and onions.
I wish I didn't discover them when I was already full.
Was a little apprehensive at first because, whilst I love mushroom, I don't usually eat them whole.
I have a confession.
The Deep Fried Twinkie was my main reason for wanting to go to Misty's Diner.
It was pretty good.
Way too sweet for me, but all you sweet tooth's out there will LOVE this.
And something I didn't expect.
Deep Fried Oreo.
This was like a sugar party in your mouth.
So good, but felt so bad at the same time.
My diet certainly went out the window with this one!
Everything about this place was AMAZING!
The 50's style diner made me feel I had just set foot on the Grease stage.
In fact, the tiny Jukeboxes on each booth even have "You're The One That I Want" to choose from.
Our waiters were so friendly, and fun.
Found we had developed a rapport with ours within the first 5 minutes of being seated.
Props to Ralphie and Cary G [I believe his real name is Todd]
We even got to meet the famous Misty as we were leaving, she's gorgeous.
Just don't let her see you use cutlery, apparently that is against the rules :D
I would like to know though, if all their accents are real?
Misty's Diner is open 7 days
Located at 103- 105 High Street, Prahran
[Near the Chapel Street intersection]
