Given that Melbourne is a cultural hub, there are so many different types of food to indulge in from a variety of culinary backgrounds. The Ethiopian community of Footscray in Melbourne is fairly large, and therefore dishes originating from Ethiopia is quite popular amongst many of the cuisines available in the city. If you desire a cuisine a bit more native to Melbourne, dine at Oak & Vine, located at Oaks on Market, a centrally-located provider of apartment accommodation Melbourne is known for.
