HOT: Mediterranean Wholesalers, 482 Sydney Rd, Brunswick

I think the best way to navigate Mediterranean Wholesalers is to bring your own Italian nonna. Really, they should offer a No-Nonsense Nonna rental service along with the shopping trolleys. Since no such service exists, I was left to face the fomidable rows of dried pasta shapes on my own. The supermarket also sells pallets […]

HOT: A1 Bakery, 645 Sydney Rd, Brunswick

I remember my first visit to A1 Bakery and being astounded by the cheap prices for the freshly baked lebanese pizzas. Well, amost 5 years on and it’s still dirt cheap, mostly hovering around the $3 mark. My zaatar pizza ($1.50!) consisted of a soft pillowy base, the complete opposite of a crispy Italian crust, […]

HOT: Hausfrau Bakery and Cakes, 32A Ballarat St, Yarraville

Hausfrau is a cute bakery cafe styled with kitsch 50s-style laminate, enamel jugs and crockery of bright blooms which serves an array of savoury and sweet treats as well as selling loaves of bread. Its warm cosiness was very popular when we popped in for a movie post-mortem so we had to wait a while […]

HOT: Stephanie Alexander, NGV Australia, Federation Square, Melb

I think I’m very fortunate that my upbringing has taught me how food gets to my table, the […]

HOT: Commercial Bakery, Rear 360 Lt Collins St, Melbourne

Commercial Bakery is the kind of hidden Tardis-like cafe on which Melbourne thrives. At first I thought it was a tiny establishment selling only what was displayed in its window shelves, but step inside and you see that a large warmly-lit split-level area stretches into the back beyond. Its frontage caught my eye because of […]

HOT: Cafe Vue, 430 Little Collins Street, Melbourne

I can still remember my visit to Shannon Bennett’s first Carlton restaurant and my initial encounter with multiple courses of wildly fantastical food combinations. Now, when I am asked to name Melbourne’s best restaurant, I invariably answer ‘Vue de Monde’. Since moving to his CBD location, Bennett has expanded his repertoire beyond molecular gastronomy to […]
