HOT: Meatsmith Specialty Butcher & Wine Merchant, 273 Smith Street, Fitzroy

Meatsmith is the kind of butcher that everyone wants around the corner from their house. The shop is a collaboration between Melbourne uber-chef Andrew McConnell and butcher Troy Wheeler, who started their relationship with wholesale restaurant trade but wanted to supply best quality heritage meats and skilled butchery to the general public. From the outside […]

HOT: Winter Night Market, Queen Victoria Market, Corner of Elizabeth & Victoria Streets, Melbourne

The Night Market at Queen Victoria Market is one of Melbourne’s wintery highlights and this year the season has been extended for 14 weeks, every Wednesday from 1 June to 31 August.

This Italian family-run business also make their gelati on site using traditional Italian […]

HOT: Miinot Gelato, 71 Melville Rd, Pascoe Vale South

Melbourne heat wave = daily gelati tasting. And while Miinot Gelato is hidden away in Pascoe Vale South it’s well worth the trip. If you’re local, lucky you! The tiny shop is on a main road but not really close to anything else – no cafes or shops near it. Nevertheless, on my arrival there […]
