Apparently this is the fifth of these I’ve done (try here, here, here and here, for previous editions). It’s quite overdue since I visited a lot of these places ages ago (and some just last week), but the whole baby thing means I just haven’t had time to write about the lovely food I’ve been having out and about.
Mostly I’m finally finishing this long-drafted post NOW because I’m having surgery next week and, in case I DIE, I want you to all know how nice these places are and that you should go. I want to go back to every single one of them (and often have, much to the dismay of my bank balance).
Top Paddock in Richmond (this is from quite a while ago, sorry)
Daniel Son in Murrumbeena
LuxBite (their Toorak store is just STUNNING, look at it!!!! Their tiny CBD shopfront is so different)
Tivoli Street Bakery in South Yarra
Clement at the South Melbourne market (god, those DOUGHNUTS)
Sierra Tango in Cheltenham, where they have handsome men playing atmospheric gypsy (almost tango-like, you might say) music on Tuesday nights (and Saturdays as well, I think they said)
The Kettle Black in South Melbourne (I went before Christmas but dream of going again)
