Melbourne's Top Culinary Hotspots – A Holiday Dedicated to the Taste Buds

The beautiful city of Melbourne is a treat for all those who love to pamper their taste buds in style. Below are few places that redefine dining in this city.

1

Bahari

Bahari

Exclusive in every way, Bahari is a modern Greek restaurant that has food fit for feasting. Flaunting a collection of Chef Phillip Vako's finest dishes, the cuisine found here combines the best of the Greek and English worlds. At first look it may appear like any other dining venue, but what it has on offer makes it one of the biggest crowd pullers in the city. It may all seem overwhelming, the menu and the system but left in the hands of the experienced staff you will find a proper way through your courses from start to finish. Popular names you must look out for here include octopus char grilled with ouzo, lemon and oregano, lamb shoulder slow roasted with rosemary, lemon, and garlic and the traditional Greek beans known as the fasolakia.

Beach Burrito Fitzroy

Beach Burrito Fitzroy

You need a good Mexican joint to do justice to a culinary holiday and nothing quite tops the popular Beach Burrito Fitzroy in this regard. It may be one of those restaurants that has a strong novelty factor but at the same it has casual Mexican fare that makes it a highly sought after restaurant among a myriad of varying clientele. Just recently the Beach Burrito launched its very first Victorian outlet that is equally popular as its older joint. It's a hipster friendly concept here and you find everything from plenty of beer, burritos amidst lots of neon and concrete. If you are looking for 'that' particular vibe, this place really seals the deal. As for food favourites include corn chips served with guacamole, sour cream and some chilli, the pulled beef burrito and the very famous soft shells on Tuesday night. As for dessert, the sugar-crusted churros are the all time favourite here.

Bibelot

Bibelot

This in a nutshell is paradise for the dessert lover. Bibelot is French for 'a small object of beauty, curiosity or desire', making it a perfect explanation to everything you will find in this enchanting restaurant. It is a mouth watering treat here and you will not be able to stop salivating at the sight of the plump macaroons, glistening gateaux, bonbons, and cakes neatly stacked in the shiny glass cabinets. It looks like a work of modern art the many delightful treats you can have here, and the best part is that it is designed to complete the sweet tooth in you. For the warmer days, there is heavenly gelato that can be topped with any amount of chocolate sauce making it yet another factor that draws to its doors a plethora of crowds.

Melbourne Chinatown

Melbourne Chinatown

It may not sound as fancy as the eateries listed above, but a culinary holiday is not quite complete without delving into a little authentic Chinese. If looking for a Melbourne hotel apartment that can be found nearby consider Oaks on Lonsdale. Make sure to try the dining venues in Chinatown for what better place to relish in the finest most authentic Chinese cuisine than at this lively locale.
