There are so many good places to eat, that I just had to write another quick food collab!
If you’re ever in Melbourne CBD, check out Bowery to Williamsberg. It’s sells sandwiches/bagels, among a few other thing like brownies and a few hot dishes. Located down Oliver Ln just off Flinders St. And it’s amazing! And I know this because it gets extremely busy with business people around lunch time! I forgot to take a photo of my sarny, but Reuben all the way! It also sells milkshakes, which I’m dying to get!
Another great place is birds of a feather in Newport (20 mins west of Melbourne CBD). The day we went for lunch, one of the specials included brioche French toast, with rocky road ice cream. What could be better?! There’s also stuff for GF and DF people, like myself. I had the corn fritters which was an excellent choice, super yummy and filling. The whole menu is just mouth watering, so give it a go!
If you find yourself looking for a quick coffee spot, head to Degraves Street. It’s got a tonne of cute little places! There’s an epic doughnut shop called Doughnut Time, which serves some exotic looking doughnuts and it’s always busy so it must be fabulous! There’s also a super cute cupcake shop, as well as a tonne of places that serve food. My go to place is Degraves Espresso, where you can get a decent cup of coffee or juice, and a quick bite as well. There’s seating indoors as well as undercover seating in the street (with heaters for those chilly days).
The other day I met up with a friend at the Queen Vic market, and was hank marvin (‘starving’ for those who don’t know Cockney rhyming slang). I was ready to opt for a greasy spoon, but he has a more refined taste. We walked past Fancy Hank’s BBQ joint and he was sold. And I must say, excellent call because the food was totally amazing! I had a fancy sanga, and the only describing word I can think of is mouth watering. I think there was brisket in it, and pickles and onions and pickles and onions on the side. There was cheese in it, but I opted out of that. Seriously, go there for a bite! You won’t be disappointed! And it’s so reasonably priced!
