HOT: Ferdydurke, 31 Tattersalls Lane, Melbourne

I’ll let you in on a secret I discovered on a Foodi tour – you can get excellent $5 gourmet hotdogs at Ferdydurke! I don’t think even the fast food chains can beat that price, and the hotdogs at Ferdydurke are certainly a whole lot better.  Ferdydurke is a upstairs bar in Chinatown run by the same […]

HOT: 8bit, 8 Droop St, Footscray

8bit’s burgers, hot dogs and shakes are exactly what Footscray needs. It’s a culinary 180 from the numerous Vietnamese and African options in the suburb. While it’s admittedly pretty cool to have such gourmet ethnic diversity on my doorstep, before now it’s been pretty hard to get after a good quality straight-down-the-line burger and fries. A […]

HOT: Hero Subs, 1 Stewart Street, Tenancy 1, back of RMIT SAB Building 80, 445 Swanston St, Melbourne

When I was at uni there wasn’t much in the way of food offerings – nasty refectory food and make-you-own sandwiches was about the extent of it. Luckily for RMIT students, staff and nearby office workers that Hero Subs are available right on campus (they also have other stores at Collins Street and Hardware Lane […]

HOT: Bridge Road Brewers, Old Coach House Brewers Lane, 50 Ford St, Beechworth

When in Beechworth, drink beer. Bridge Road Brewers is one of Australia’s most popular craft beer producers and is one of the foodie destinations to visit in Beechworth thanks to their brewery operations in a 150 year old coach house, the kitchen’s famous pizzas and a convivial beer garden which is particularly family-friendly. I was […]

HOT: Jimmy Grants, 113 Saint David St, Fitzroy

I don’t think I’ve ever been as excited anticipating the opening of a souvlaki joint before. But I was intrigued when I noticed the old Peter Watson site being renovated into something bearing mysterious plus and minus symbols – and then I realised that George Calombaris was coming to Fitzroy with Jimmy Grants. Jimmy Grants is […]

HOT: Round the Way Bagel Burgers Food Truck, Mr Wow’s Emporium, 97B Smith St, Fitzroy

One of my favourite local bars is the fun-filled Mr Wow’s Emporium. There aren’t many inner city bars which also feature an airport strip light-style indoor bocce corridor! I also love the ping pong table, large curved bar festooned with dangling phallic looking naked bulbs against the backdrop of a huge Melways mural (in case you […]

HOT: Itali.co, 1/173-177 Barkly St, St Kilda

The partnership of Remo Nicollini, restauranteur, and Lino Maglione, master pizza maker, have recently opened a new casual Italian eatery called Itali.co in St Kilda. The two previously owned award winning pizzerias +39 and one of my CBD pizza haunts Espressino, then moved away to build the original Itali.co in Sorrento and start Docklands favourite […]

HOT: Best Burger + Beer, Maha Bar and Grill, 21 Bond St, Melbourne

Melbourne doesn’t look like it’s going to be ending its love affair with burgers any time soon. Even fine dining restaurants are getting into the act and starting today Monday 18 March for a limited time, glamorous Middle Eastern restaurant Maha will be opening up its bar and courtyard to offer possibly the best value […]

HOT: Shawcross Pizza Joint, 324 Brunswick St, Fitzroy

From the ashes of a divey kebab joint on Brunswick Street has risen a new pizza restaurant, Shawcross Pizza Joint. The owners of Phat Brats next door have taken over the adjoining site and transformed the space into a New York-style pizza joint. So what does New York-style pizza even mean? “The most notable difference […]
