What to eat?” is the perennial question for every foodie. I use the term ‘foodie’ to loosely describe anyone who loves to eat, in the same spirit that Bill Bowerman defined an ‘athlete’, as anyone with a body.

Below are my personal favourite food haunts in and around Melbourne which I hope will help the next time you need an answer for the question 🙂
