Does Melbourne ever sleep? Doesn’t seem like it at the moment. Every weekend we’re getting spoiled with pop-ups, food truck festivals, wine degustations and dirty big Viking exhibitions (that probably won’t happen every weekend, but still).
If you’ve been glued to the human train wreck that is MAFS, here’s everything you missed in the world of Melbourne food.
- The guys over at Guzman Y Gomez are now slinging breakfast burritos. And we can confirm, they’re bloody delicious.
- The Hotel Windsor just dropped their new Easter menu. And—brace yourself—they’re bringing back the hot cross scones. Better tell your Nan.
- The new-look PA’s in Carlton just announced they’re doing BOTTOMLESS PANCAKES every Sunday. BYP stretchy pants.
- Northsiders, Mr Ottorino is officially doing a breakfast trade! And they’re serving up coffee for 1 Euro a cup (no joke).
- Melbourne brewery La Sirene has teamed up with the chefs at Dinner By Heston to present something a lil’ bit fancy: their brand new Two Penny Farmhouse Ale.
- Good Beer Week unleashed their media preview this week, and you are in for a SERIOUS treat. Check out the program and get planning—it kicks off in May.
- St Kilda Burger Bar just launched a dedicated vegan menu. And for the dairy-eaters, they even devised their own STKBB ‘Magnum’—a choc-dipped ice-cream stuffed with salted caramel and popping candy.
- We checked out the best things to see and do at this year’s Melbourne Flower & Garden Show.
- Careful—there’s a very prickly Cactus Carnival coming to Melbourne Central.
- We popped by the CBD’s brand new GAP greyhound cafe. Pooches, puppyccinos and lots of pats. Winner.
- Speaking of new openings, Ziggy’s Burgers just popped up in South Melbourne, and Nosh opened its doors in Melbourne Central. Nori tacos anyone?
- Last but not least, Melbourne Museum unveiled it’s new Viking Exhibition, and there’s not a horned helmet in sight (what gives, history teachers?)
