Saint Barry

The Eastside is building. Along with Mr Hendricks, Snow Pony, and the newly opened White Mojo, here comes Saint Barry to add a new layer to the ancient restaurant scene out in the residential east. While the aforementioned trio of cafes are strictly that, Saint Barry’s also brings good news to those that have to work typical business…

Honeycomb Hideout

You’ve got to love the idea. Open a decent restaurant, head out the back after a hard day’s work, chill out with a couple of beers – why not let people in on this vibe? The crew at Honeycomb Hideout have graciously done exactly that with their pizza-and-beer joint tucked away behind the already established Fox and…

Anchor Milk – Milk Roasted Pork Belly Recipe

Having established itself in the evergreen valleys of New Zealand 125 years ago, Anchor Dairy has finally launched their milk range on Australian shores (only in Victorian Woolworths at the moment). Normally milk isn’t particularly interesting to talk about. But through the use of its unique ceramic filtration technology, Anchor Milk delivers a product that actually tastes like the ‘good stuff’ you remember…

Royal Stacks

This crew behind Dandenong Pavilion, Three One Two One and Grand Trailer Park are starting to illuminati the shit out of the Melbourne burger scene. We know that they know that we know that they know how to make a beautiful, juicy, balanced burger. But Royal Stacks on Collins St offers us a good price point, desserts whipped…

Oasis Bakery

It’s an oasis, it’s a bakery, it’s a food store, it’s a café. This local favourite, hidden in a Murrumbeena industrial precinct, serves up Middle Eastern breakfasts, grills, pastries and notorious Lebanese sweets. And with Executive Chef Colin Wilson (ex Thierry Marx, Rockpool) at the helm, the bakery has launched a contemporary brunch menu, with – of course…

Babu Burger

You can’t help but admire a restaurant such as Babu Burger that needs to account for delivery as well as its internal production. While pizzas seem relatively logical in terms of getting the pizzas into the oven and then getting them out for delivery, burgers on the other hand, which at Babu are entirely customisable, feel like an…

Taxi Kitchen

  Once the toast of the town, Taxi Kitchen has seen it all as the rest of the Melbourne dining scene rushed to the good food party – something that unfortunately overwhelmed Taxi Kitchen underneath the wave of sheer numbers. With so many great eateries constantly popping up throughout Melbourne and Victoria, it can be…

YOMG – Yo My Goodness

Burgers and froyo. Together at last. There are a number of things you’d think you’d never see, and this is probably one of them. But it doesn’t matter because YOMG works as both burger joint that certainly serves up “a tasty burger”, whilst still leaving you no excuse but to stay for some crowd pleasing froyo. 100% grass fed…

Fitzrovia

The long standing institution of St Kilda has freshened up its menu in time for Summer. Attuning itself further with the St Kilda vibe, new additions include southside favourites such as the whole grain new seasons asparagus salad, polenta chips with truffled pasley and Parmesan and the consistently impressive, hot and sour crisp salt and pepper calamari. Fitzrovia’s…

Hunter & Barrel

The concept is simple, elegant and successful. The Hunter represents quality, artisanal, local food and The Barrel denotes barrel-aged wines and old-world cocktails with a modern twist. Hunter & Barrel sits in the new Eastland precinct alongside classic new haunts Huxtaburger and Jimmy Grants, but offers something more entirely. The tri-levelled and high-ceilinged restaurant has size, but cosiness…

Arbory

Further proof Arbory is one of the best, most versatile drinking and eating spots in Melbourne: it has launched a cocktail list. Just in time for summer, the longneck, alfresco deck bar positioned on the bank between Flinders Street Station and the Yarra River, has added a 12-strong cocktail list to their offerings. The cocktail menu accompanies their…

Breakfast, lunch and dinner – residents and visitors of Docklands, the Collins Square Hospitality Group has you covered. From tasty treats and quality coffee at Long Shot Cafe, the lively Spanish flavours and atmosphere of Nacional, to the refined modern interpretations of Italian classics at Chiara and the memorable food experience created by Collins Square Catering….
