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: Casa Ciuccio, 13 Gertrude St, Fitzroy

Melbourne’s inaugural Good Food Month starts today and there are some amazing events in the program (some of which have already sold out). Fasten your seatbelts and loosen your belts, there will be a lot of Good Food Month action happening on the blog in November. Firstly, ‘Let’s Do Lunch‘. During Good Food Month weekday two-course lunches at a selection of Good Food Guide restaurants […]

HOT: La Condesa Taqueria and Cantina, 234 Johnston St (entry via Chapel St), Fitzroy

Munching on tacos in a sunny off-laneway courtyard? How very Melbourne Summer of 2013. La Condesa is a taquería that serves tasty tacos for a bargain 3 for $10 at lunchtimes (and $4 each the rest of the time). The seating is simple – low wooden tables and benches on Astroturf and surrounded by graffiti and […]

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: Lark Store, 94 Gertrude St, Fitzroy

Lark Store has been synonymous with cute homewares and party supplies since it opened its shopfront in Daylesford four years ago. They’ve now closed their Daylesford store and have decided to take the show on the road at various pop up locations, starting with a residency in Fitzroy until February 2014. At Lark Fitzroy you’ll […]

HOT: Third Drawer Down, 93 George St, Fitzroy

Third Drawer Down is Melbourne’s home of kook. And giant objects. I often take visitors to Third Drawer Down‘s curated selection of the ‘best of’ museum shops as it’s easy to miss if you’re not looking for it. The small store is a Pandora’s box of fun, useful and not-so-useful products, some designed in house and […]

HOT: Po’ Boy Quarter, 295 Smith St, Fitzroy

The eagle has landed. Or rather, the Gumbo Kitchen food truck team have set up permanent digs in Fitzroy with Po’ Boy Quarter. Po’ Boy Quarter serves up the same Creole/New Orleans inspired food that has made Gumbo Kitchen a Melbourne food truck favourite. The food comes fast, the servings are huge, there a lot of deep-frying […]

HOT: LuxBite x N2 Extreme Gelato Melbourne x Uber Melbourne

As far as marketing stunts go, the collaboration between dessert specialists LuxBite, ice cream laboratory N2 Extreme Gelato and premium taxi service Uber Melbourne is a deliciously fun one. For this weekend only (Friday 30 August to Sunday 1 September), Malaysia’s kaya coconut jam will be featured in two special ice-cream dishes at two Malaysian-run […]

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: Young Bloods Diner, 60 Rose St, Fitzroy

Young Bloods Diner has just opened on the site of the popular weekend Rose Street Artists Market and given the paucity of truly child-friendly (as opposed to just child-tolerant) cafes in ever-gentrifying Fitzroy I think it’ll do really well.  It’s not all about the rugrats though – the setting and menu, not to mention the liquor licence, […]
