On a simple Saturday stroll around Melbourne recently I suddenly realised how much food is actually around me in this awesome city. You’ve got the Queen Victoria Market, which has amazing bread and cheeses, great prices on fish and I just discovered a fantastic spice place with amazing value, and that’s just the start of this Melbourne adventure into food.
I’ve heard Melbourne described as a foodies heaven.
They’re probably right.
There’s so many places to go, so many things to see and so many wonderful delicacies to try. So, why aren’t you here already???
Okay, I see. You need some enticement.
You’ve come to the right place my friend.
Retrace my steps with me and I’ll show you the wonders of this Melbourne adventure. They say a picture is worth a thousand words, so I’ll share with you the photos I took and you can make the words yourself.
A warning though: please, no drooling on the computer. 🙂

Meat at a Popular Restaurant in Southgate
|This is the entry to a popular restaurant. It is pile upon pile of meat.
As a vegetarian I was “ew, yuck!” but my husband loved it.
And now you’ve seen the delights I’ve seen, you’ll have to come and experience them all with me, because I haven’t tasted any of these delicious treats yet either. But you can be sure that I’ll post those experiences when I do get the chance to go back and try them all!
And leave me a comment to tell me when you’re dropping by! 🙂
