Wine and dine in Yarra Valley

The very method of prepping and serving it – the liquid nitrogen gelato with chocolate-filled syringes – has become a sensation of sorts.

Turkish delights and Greek gourmet

European specialties are ubiquitous. Pretty much every city around the world has a restaurant of Italian or French kitchen. They’ll often offer you some truly incredible meals that taste as well as they are arranged.

Well if you are in Melbourne, look no further than Haci’s and Ali’s Jumbo Kebabs for, naturally, the juiciest kebab meals south of Equator. If your stomach still craves some gourmet grilling, check out Stalactites on Lonsdale Street for souvlakis that are out of this world.
