The city of Melbourne is the perfect weekend getaway. Once a year, my best friend and I book the cheapest flights on the dodgiest airlines and jet off down to Victoria to spend our life savings on food and fashion. Here is a little snippet of where we ate and what we did.
The Melbourne Musts
Chin Chin is one of the most loved restaurants in Melbourne. The restaurant is rarely seen without a line out the door with hungry customers waiting eagerly on the side walk to get a seat. I have been told by a local that Chin Chin is a rite of passage if you live in the city and it is obvious to see why. Just the thought of the traditional Thai flavours, groovy decor and beautiful cocktails is making me consider booking a flight just to go back.
Naked for Satan is the roof top bar of dreams. A view of the Melbourne skyline with a refreshing drink in hand is the perfect way to wine down after a long day of exploring everything this city has to offer. Located in Fitzroy, Naked for Satan is amongst unique boutiques, vintage stores and trendy cafes.
This popular restaurant, Hawker Chan, made its start in the industry in a food truck, that was until it was give a Michelin Star. The line was over 100 meters long, trickling out onto the rainy footpath outside, but the wait was worth it. The perfect lunch spot if you are looking for something delicious, authentic, and cheap in the middle of the city.
A Bonus Stop
The Arboria is an interactive art installation in the Federation square. Unfortunately, it was only there for three weeks. However, the installation often travels from city to city. Walking through the colourful tunnels is nothing like I have ever experienced.
