Restaurants

'What did you eat' is usually the first question after a night out in Melbourne, and the answer could be just about anything thanks to Melbourne's dizzying array of dining options and the city-wide emphasis on the stomach.

Multicultural mix and wallet-friendly eats
Trawl Melbourne's distinct ethnic dining precincts to feed a craving for those just-back-from-holiday hankerings for authentic Pad Thai, South Indian curry, Yucatecan cochinita pibil, or Middle Eastern mezze. The city's traditional multicultural mix is represented on the plate and new ingredients are constantly being added.

Depending on how far from payday you are, there's a dining option to suit. Fill up at the myriad ethnic eateries or the buzzing cafes with their filling baguettes and single origin coffees. Plenty of upmarket restaurants offer mid-week lunch specials to let you taste how the other half dine.

Finest dining
The Melburnian love of a good meal has placed the city in the top echelons of global dining, with Anthony Bourdain famously declaring, 'I'd rather eat in Melbourne than Paris.' Local chefs hone their skills around the world, then return home to establish one-of-a-kind restaurants in typically Melbourne venues. Many of the world's best chefs set up Melbourne outposts or guest-chef at local favourites to complement the scene.

Eat your own adventure
Eating out in Melbourne can be an adventure, thanks to an increasing number of LA-style mobile food vans and their use of social media to advertise their changing locations. Sign up, track them down, and pig out.
