Giro D'Italia is a popular Italian restaurant serving standout regional dishes, and has made waves since its relocation to St Kilda Rd just out of the Melbourne CBD. A point of difference is that Dom is not only owner and chef, but also hosts guests spending generous amounts of time on the floor. We have follwed the journey of Giro D'Italia from day one and it's an experience to visit, rather than just to grab some food and drink.
Gaylord Indian Restaurant housed in the iconic Grand Hotel in Spencer St (cnr Flinders St) has launched a new menu with Golden Lamb Chops being a star dish, featuring tender lamb cutlets marinated in house spices and grilled in the tandoor. You can eat like a king, as historically this dish was served to kings in Central India. The Mughals would be proud.
A generous amount of edible gold leaf on the chops makes this a dish of distinction and amazing value. I can't also but help think of the restaurant being located in an iconic building in a city founded on the back of the gold rush. Apart from a nod to historical regional Indian cooking, could this also be a nod to the hotel's late 19th century Gold Rush Era heritage? Hopefully we will see a gold rush of sorts in 2021 as Melbourne recovers from a difficult 2020.
Jade Fox Restaurant has been making waves in Doncaster East, a modern spacious restaurant overlooking iconic local hangout Jackson Court. A cafe by day and modern Thai restaurant by night this is a modern flexible dining destination.
Ya Jinda Thai the sister restaurant of ever popular Jinda Thai in Abbotsford is making waves in Melbourne's eastern suburbs with its top notch Thai offerings and excellent service. We have experienced Ya Jinda several times since it opened and it's never failed to deliver. We feel blessed to have such a fine Thai restaurant in our midst in this part of Melbourne, something we've been craving. Check out our Best Thai Restaurants in Melbourne.
Chargrill Charlie's in Camberwell has launched their picnic packs for the perfect summer takeaway. The World Loves Melbourne was invited to experience a picnic pack and we chose the Charlie's Angels pack (others include Charlies Beach Pack and the Family and Peeps, Post Match, Feeding Frenzy and Footy Feast) with its large salad component.
A local oasis has descended on the shoreline of Sorrento, and inside, an atmospheric culinary experience like no other awaits. Ocean Beach Pavilion is Mornington Peninsula’s newest retreat – a casual, family-friendly restaurant and bar where shoes are optional, salty ocean air comes complimentary, and a fresh coastal-inspired menu featuring locally sourced produce is the main act. We at The World Loves Melbourne were invited along to experience the exciting new concept, and were impressed with the Hawker style street food as well as local wines and fine cocktails.
Three Blue Ducks, the group of chefs and avid surfers who own and operate restaurants across Sydney, Brisbane and Byron Bay, have opened their Melbourne venue at Australia’s first surf park – URBNSURF Melbourne. The World Loves Melbourne attended a media launch event, and we were super impressed.
