I am constantly astounded by the quality and diversity of food that is offered in Melbourne. Having recently returned from travelling and working overseas (where I had the pleasure of dining at quite a few Michelin-starred restaurants), I can comfortably say that Melbourne offers some of the best restaurants and cafes in the world, which, believe it or not, I much preferred over their Michelin-starred counterparts. This past month I have been very ‘busy’ re-acquainting my palette with Melbourne food. Here are a few favourites that I’d happily eat at (over and over) again: Hinoki Japanese Pantry Location: 279 Smith Street, Fitzroy, VIC 0065 Contact: 03 9417 4531 IMG_20150215_174219 Hinoki Japanese Pantry on Urbanspoon Fonda Mexican Location: 248 Swan Street, Richmond, VIC 3121 Contact: 03 9429 0085 IMG_20150224_204240 Fonda Mexican on Urbanspoon Jinda Thai Location: 7 Ferguson St, Abbotsford, VIC 3067 Contact: 03 9419 5899 Processed with VSCOcam with c2 preset Jinda Thai Restaurant on Urbanspoon

Taste of Melbourne 14-17 November 2013 Running over four days, Taste of Melbourne is perfect for those of you who always seem to have a never ending list of restaurants that you’ve been dying to try but just can’t seem to find the time to. The 2013 festival featured yet another incredible lineup, with a number of culinary giants setting up under the tent – Taxi Dining Room, Mamasita, Chin Chin and Saint Crispin to name a few. The festival works on a crown system, with entrants placing money ($1 = one crown) on an electronic card upon entry, which is then used to purchase any dish or item at the Taste of Melbourne.
