Melbourne must-eats

Food Tourist | Jul 2, 2007 09:45 PM

I'm from Toronto, Canada and will be visiting Diamond Creek (near Eltham/Greensborough) as well as other parts of Melbourne this month. I'd love to try "local" specialities, street food, the best take-away, etc.
My cousin has recommended Tuto Bene, Donovans, The Rockpool, Vue de Monde, and the Supper Inn (chinese).
I'd love to eat anything that I can't get in Toronto (e.g. fresh local seafood, Australian/Kiwi/South Pacific food, or anything that is Australian-style and/or fantastic - e.g. we don't have excellent Greek food up here). I don't care about good service, nice atmosphere or hype. Just give me memorable food but preferably not Vue de Monde pricing because I will be picking up the tab for my family members. $50 per person or less would be a nice budget.
I am still craving the oyster shooters I had 5 years ago at Ezard at Adelphi. Now that's memorable!
I am also looking for terrific bakeries, food shops, etc. I can take the train from Diamond Creek to anywhere in the greater Melbourne area or get on a tram once I'm in the city.
