What to Eat in Melbourne

September 14, 2017

Hello there!

Sorry for the delayed video. We usually post on Mondays but we were in Melbourne for the past week for the YouTube Creator Summit and for Vidcon. I’m not going to go over all that we did there during the week, but we talk about it for this week’s podcast. Spoiler alert: I found inner peace through a Zen Master.

During that week there were a bunch of social events that we attended where we met some lovely, lovely people: Tina Yong, My Cupcake Addiction, Prestige Clips, Bounce Patrol, Annika Victoria and many more. All truly great people to speak with. I wish we spent more time with them, but we were really interested in checking out some of the food spots in Melbourne, so we skipped out on some of the events to get some grub. How antisocial of us! It’s the same thing we do here in Japan and did back in Korea. Friends are like “hey let’s hang” and we’re like “NAH WE GOTTA EAT” and then we’re bad friends. But I like to think that we had a good balance of social interaction and personal responsibility. Yeah. That’s what I’ll tell myself.

Our list of places we visited was short because we didn’t have a lot of free time. I’d really like to go back to Melbourne again one day. I actually liked it a lot better this time than the last time we went a few years ago. I feel like I appreciate the architecture so much more now than I did. Everywhere just looked so funky. We got into watching rugby as well and loved it! Our experience around the city was delightful. If you’re going to Melbourne, you’re gonna have a blast.

Here’s our small list of what to eat in Melbourne!

Wonderbao – 4/19-37 A’Beckett St Melbourne, VIC 3000
Doughnut Time – 5 Degraves Street, Melbourne CBD, VIC 3000

Seven Seeds – 106-114 Berkeley St, Carlton VIC 3053
Viva Kebabs – 3/546 Flinders St, Melbourne VIC 3000
Aptus Seafood – Coventry St & Cecil Street, South Melbourne VIC 3205

We had other places we wanted to visit, but never got a chance to. I can’t say if they’re good or not, but here are a few more spots if you’re interested:

Mork Chocolate Brew House – 150 Errol St North Melbourne VIC 3051
Zumbo Patisserie – 14 Claremont St, South Yarra VIC 3141

  1. It’s ironic that you guys mentioned poutine.

    My 3 year old son watches a cool Netflix show called Ask The StoryBots (you should look it up. It’s a great show). The premise of the show is you’re watching these little bots answering questions by kids to their computer, sort of like a behind-the-scenes of Google search engine, and the StoryBots are inside the computer. Anyway, this group of 5 bots goes in search of the answer to the question “where do French fries come from”. After they’re led to an underground cavern filled with potatoes by a mole resembling Morpheus (teehee), the potatoes explain to the StoryBots that they look forward to being harvested, and one little potato says “I’m going to be poutine!”, then sheepishly scoots away.

    I was all like, “What the heck is poutine?!” So I Googled it… and wow, it looks really strangely tasty! But I did wonder what in the world it tastes like, cos I’ve never seen anything like it. What kind of cheese do they use? Why doesn’t America know about this?!

  3. Lol Melbourne weather. They say, if you don’t like it, wait an hour :p

    Those places you went to – I haven’t been to any of them ^^;
    I remember last time I had to struggle to find places that might be snobby enough for you guys (lol). Seven Seeds was one of them I think…
    Melbourne isn’t really cheap per se, so I have a very limited list of places I can afford.
    In the city, it’s restricted to that ‘1 dish buffet’ vegetarian place, or the ‘tastes meh but massive portions’ Chinese place, and the ‘sold out in 2 hours’ breakfast croissaints.
    I don’t even know the names of the places.
    Or if all else fails – 50c avocados at Queen Vic Market. With salt. Used to be my lunch for a while.

  4. If you visit Melbourne again, you should totally check out Pancake Parlor, Lord of the Fries and the Queen Vic Market!!

  5. For midrange noms (not budget but not super exxy) you cant go past chin chin. They are SUPER popular and don’t do bookings so expect to give them your mobile number and wait an hour or an hour and a half for a seat. I usually go close to midday for lunch- they love the spice as much as you do so ask for it hot and they will be happy to provide. Otherwise if you want super fine dining attica and vue de monde are good bets. – a little further out are saigon sally, tokyo tina and rice queen they are all excellent. If you want something vegetarian the vegie bar is good. If you want a day trip there are some awesome wineries food and artisan producers in the yarra valley or the mornington peninsula.

  7. Fellow canuck here. If you’re ever in the prairies (and maybe the Maritimes) check our donair poutine. Pretty similar to the HSP, but better because poutine. Don’t worry, Canada still owns the drunk food title!

  8. I guess I know exactly where I’m eating if I ever make it out to Melbourne! I mean, after all, half of traveling is for the food, right?!

  9. Oh my! So glad you got to try most of the good eats back home.

    Mooks is definitely to die for. There’s also a great brekkie place on the same street as Mooks that does really wholesome fusion breakfast.

    Whereas if you must try Zumbo’s, I highly recommend going to the main outlet in Sydney. They have way more selections there than the branch in South Yarra.
