    Where are the Best Restaurants in Melbourne?

    I have been reading some reviews about the best restaurants in Melbourne.

    Yes, it's great to have delicious food.

    I shall start this thread for our CCCers who love food and who attend some of our lunches, dinners and suppers after our Badminton sessions.

    Despite living 153 degrees of longitude away from Melbourne, I seem to be the only one interested in your thread.

    Did that article in "weekendnotes" state that there are 150 Vietnamese restaurants in Melbourne?!!

    Around here we've got probably 1, since that fire I mentioned. Here's the sad pictures --as if you care. (Hmmm, I went to elementary school with the fire captain in that story. Cool!)

    Enjoy your pho and banh bao!

    I haven't told any of our CCC Badminton players about this thread. Therefore our CCCers don't know yet.

    I am gathering restaurant info from "weekendnotes" because I know one day when we need a restaurant for our CCC function, this thread will be useful.

    You have only one Vietnamese restaurant in your town? In Melbourne, we have over one thousand.

    Sad that Tu Do was burnt down. The name reminded me of a fantastic restaurant in Melborne named Co Do where I often go to when I wish to eat Bun Bo Hue.

    Here is their link;
    http://www.urbanspoon.com/r/71/14789...Co-Do-Richmond

    So far, 92% of 148 people voted that they like Co Do.

    Thumbs up Best Cheap Eats in Melbourne

    .
    Justine Crowley wrote an article about Best Cheap Eats in Melbourne.

    Melbourne has a variety of cheap places to eat out without breaking the bank, and cheap enough where you can feel like a king's ransom for lunch; still spend no more than $15 (in many cases) and not feel like any dinner at all. This is what I call cheap eats. Sure thing, some of the eating out places can cost the earth, and the great thing is that healthy food is now more accessible to all: and I do not mean KFC or McDonald's, even though these places are cheap eats as well. I mean quality restaurants, where with many of these establishments "cash only" is their policy, so therefore you will be giving your wallet and your credit cards a bit of a holiday too. Amen to that.

    If you love yum cha, and you love eating your dumplings, then Shanghai Village at Little Bourke Street is the way to go. This is a cash only establishment, and the variety of dumplings are just amazing. The service is okay, yet the food is delicious and well priced. Enjoy a taster of around three different dumpling plates of around 3-4 dumplings each, and you would have only spent around $15-20. A word of warning: this establishment does get busy, and within good reason too.

    If pasta is more of your thing, then head to Mamma Vittoria's at Fitzroy, and for around $10 a pop for pasta, expect to be extremely full. Serving sizes are generous, and their staff are rather generous in nature too.

    If you love eating healthy vegetarian food cooked with love and care, and you do not mind eating with strangers; then Crossways at Swanston Street in the city is your go to destination. It does get crowded here, well it is all you can eat vegetarian food from Monday's to Saturday's at $6.50 a pop with dessert and drinks (cordial or water) included. Otherwise, for a "pay what you feel the meal is worth experience" for quality vegetarian food such as their veggie burgers, then Lentil as Anything at St Kilda is your mother for lunch. Many Melburnians come here when their credit card is either at or nearing their limits, or it's rent time. The business advises that $10 a meal would be preferred to keep the business afloat, however you are still free to pay what you feel the meal is worth.

    Why cook at home when you can eat out in great (and sometimes simple) ambience so cheaply? Yes cheap in Melbourne is great, and the city that is ranked as "the world's most liveable city" has great cheap eat establishments to boot. Bon appetit.

    Why cook at home when you can eat out for free?

    I have been informed this:

    A free meal in the middle of Federation Square? Yes, this is correct on the weekend (03 & 04 March 2012).
