Melbourne is Australia’s premier city for eating out. Sydney may be more style-conscious and Adelaide cheaper, but Melbourne has the best food and the widest choice of cuisines. In the city centre, Greek cafés line Lonsdale St between Swanston and Russell sts, while Little Bourke St is the home of Chinatown. Lygon St, in inner-city Carlton, is just one of many places across the city with a concentration of Italian restaurants. Nearby, Brunswick St in Fitzroy and Smith St in neighbouring Collingwood both have a huge variety of international cuisines as well as trendy bars and cafés. Indeed, Fitzroy and St Kilda, another gastronomically mixed bag, are the centres of bar and café society; St Kilda also has great restaurants, bakeries and delis, as does Jewish Balaclava (aka East St Kilda). In Richmond, Vietnamese places dominate Victoria St, but you’ll also find cheap Middle Eastern and Burmese food.
