The verdict

From the team that brought us Top Paddock comes The Kettle Black, set back from St Kilda Road on Albert Road in South Melbourne.

This is the place to come if you're looking for Instagrammable food on the city fringe: think King Island crayfish rolls and polenta porridge with burnt maple—plus, they've still made room for their infamous (and totally photographable) ricotta hot cakes. Our pick of the bunch is the Cape Grim beef with house made mustard on their signature black ash bun.

With a coffee cart sitting out front to ply you with caffeine while you wait for a table, The Kettle Black have the crowds sorted—so sit back, relax and enjoy the food!
