A Dining And Drinking Guide To Melbourne – Australia

Question a native Melbournian what makes his hometown unique among all the major cities of Australia and he’s likely to point to food. People in Melbourne are proud of their food – its quality, diversity and, yes, even its affordability. There seems to be an endless array of different cuisine available in the thousands of restaurants and cafes that line Melbourne, much to the amazement of foreign visitors.

There is a saying in Melbourne that finding a terrible meal is harder than finding a fantastic meal. Certainly, fantastic food has become a way of life in the city, combined, of course, with quality drinks and ambience. Oftentimes, one gets the feeling that brilliant cuisine has become so commonplace that it is ambience that provides the critical difference between one fine restaurant and another.

It’s simple to find the very best dining places in Melbourne because they are usually located in the city’s most well loved streets and districts, such as the following:

Brunswick Street
If it’s dining urban style that you crave, then Brunswick Street in the northern part of the city is the place to visit. It has a distinct inner city feel and is a favorite weekend haunt of foreign travelers who wish to delight in a long, languid brunch. Mario’s and The Fitz are the most well loved cafes in the areas and both serve huge, hearty “brunches” 24 hours a day. Two other cafes, Umago and Retro Café, are giving them a run for their money with their growing popularity. Aside from its fabulous cafes, Brunswick Street is also known as a haven of Melbourne’s art and alternative community. A cacophony of street performers can usually be heard, including joke tellers, fire twirlers and other entertainment-minded locals.

Lygon Street
This is the Italian side of town, where the original Italian immigrants first made their home and where they adapted innately Italian customs and traditions that live on to this day through their food, fashion, festivals and keen sense of humor. Restaurants like Tiamo and Brunetti serve authentic Italian cuisine that remind many of the way things are done back home. Check out Santino’s Terrace in the vicinity, and if you’re a pizza aficiando, you can’t go past Il Gamberos – perhaps the best pizza in Australia!

Victoria Street
From Italy, foreign guests will get a taste of Vietnam when they head east to Victoria Street. Restaurants like Tho Tho’s, Thy Thy I and The Huong specialize not only in Vietnamese food but in replicating Vietnam’s unique cultural ambience and flavor.

Central Business District
The exquisite array of fine dining options available in the city’s business district such as Tuscan Grill, Marchetti’s Latin and Grossi Florentino often amazes foreign executives in Melbourne. Cocktail bars such as Gin Palace, Hairy Canary and Melbourne Supper Club have also been widely celebrated for their dining and drinking.

Although known mainly as a commercial hub, Southbank has gained a growing reputation for its food and entertainment offerings, especially at the Crown Entertainment Center.

Chapel Street
While Chapel Street is synonymous with fashion and trendy designer clothes, it also has its share of fantastic eateries such as Kush, Caffe Sienna and Caffe e Cucina.
