Thanks to Chowhound, I have been eating exceptionally well in Melbourne for the week I have been here on holiday (for the Open). We've tried, for dinner,
- Lee Ho Fook
- Bar Lourinha
- St Crispin
- and tonight, the Town Mouse
and for breakfast/brunch (pre-tennis)
- La Luna
- The Grain Store
Also great drinks at lots of places, but especially the Everleigh (and some very nice cheese and wine at Punch Lane and Cumulus Up.)
We're headed to Sydney for the weekend (booked at Sepia and Spice Temple), and will be back in Melbourne on Sunday and Monday before heading home. I've already booked Da Noi for dinner (Monday) because I had a great meal there a couple of years ago, but there is one night (Sunday) left unclaimed.
The twist - we are staying for these final two nights down in Prahran, for a change of pace (now we are in CBD), so we were thinking of trying to find a place in the Prahran or South Yarra neighborhoods. Because we have tasting menus on either side of that day planned, I'm thinking something simpler. Both Dainty Sichuan and Hu Tong came to mind, but I also wondering if there is good Greek food in that general area. Or something else? (Including something else in a different neighborhood if you think we've missed something that we'll regret!)
And, where should we go for cocktails and/or wine in Prahran?
Any (quick) advice would be great. And if you are in Philadelphia, happy to return the favor/advice some day!
