HOT: Meatballs & Sons, 266 Brunswick St, Fitzroy

Who would have thought there would be such a thing as a Melbourne meatball ‘scene’? Well, the latest entrant on the meatball market is Meatballs & Sons in Fitzroy. I first dined at Meatball & Sons through an invitation but I liked it so much that I returned with my family a few weeks later […]

HOT: Cô Thư Quán, Shop 22, 63 Nicholson Street, Footscray

If you like pho and rice paper rolls then you’re spoilt for choice in Footscray. But visit Cô Thư Quán  in Little Saigon market and you will experience the kind of Vietnamese food that I suspect you won’t find anywhere else in Melbourne. Cô Thư Quán is tucked away in a quiet nook inside crazy shouty Little Saigon […]

HOT: Goz City, 502 Lt Collins St, Melbourne

Gözleme is a simple, satisfying filled flatbread from Turkey which has found its way to our markets and festivals….and now Goz City, Australia’s first gözleme store. Before you turn your nose up at Turkish street food being given a permanent residence in Melbourne’s CBD, consider trying the gözleme being served at Goz City. I was […]

HOT: Kinfolk, 673 Bourke St, Melbourne

Kinfolk is a place that makes you feel good about eating out. That’s because the café is a social enterprise run mostly by volunteers and all profits go towards four Australian and international development projects. Customers can even choose where their money goes by popping a coffee bean into one of the project jars. The space […]

HOT: Rickshaw Run, Melbourne Food and Wine Festival 2014, Footscray

I’ll admit that much of this year’s Melbourne Food and Wine Festival passed me by this year as I was caught up with packing up and moving house. I did manage to make it to a few events though and one of the highlights was the Rickshaw Run, an annual sold out event held in […]

HOT: Hellenic Republic Kew, 26 Cotham Rd, Kew

I was sad to hear that one of my local faves St Katherine’s had gone. Fortunately the site has been transformed into Hellenic Republic Kew and given that I’m a fan of the original Brunswick edition the change is not such a bad thing. I think St Katherine’s and Hellenic Republic are branches of the same tree anyway. […]

HOT: Gelato Messina, 237 Smith St, Fitzroy

Welcome to Melbourne, Gelato Messina. The famous Sydney gelateria serves gelato that’s been voted the best in Australia by the Good Food Guide and it has just set up its first interstate, and biggest, operation on the inner north’s ever-burgeoning eat street, Smith Street Fitzroy. If the early crowds are anything to go by (especially […]

HOT: Ashkelon Food Store, 321 St Georges Rd, Fitzroy North

I wished my kitchen looked like Ashkelon. The thing that first draws your eye when you enter this single-room cafe/foodstore is the floor-to-ceiling plywood shelves. Each nook is laden with neatly lined and labelled jars of housemade condiments, crinkly packets of granola, pasta and grains and an overflowing hessian-lined basket of organic lemons. The wall […]

HOT: Hinoki Japanese Pantry, 279 Smith St, Fitzroy

Japanese is one of my favourite cuisines and so you can imagine my excitement when Hinoki Japanese Pantry opened in my neighbourhood. Hinoki is a Japanese grocery store and sushi bar rolled into one. That means you can stop for a healthy lunch of nigiri, maki, sashimi or hand rolls and then do some shopping afterwards. […]

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 […]
