This Post is About Food...Surprise!

If you've followed my blog at all, you know that one of my favorite topics is food. Because it's just SO GOOD here. Peter's boss is in town, so we have been showing her around Melbourne and trying out a couple new places in the process. I have a few places to HIGHLY recommend to anyone in the Melbourne area. Those that are thousands of miles away...don't worry, I've got pictures for you. These food posts exist solely to lure visitors, by the way :). 

We went to Paco's Tacos for lunch today, which absolutely falls into the "hipster taco bar" category Peter dubbed awhile back. I didn't get a picture of my actual food because I ate it too quickly. It was that good. But here's the outdoor seating area.
Tacos seem to be a standard $6 (per taco) which I thought was absurd until I tasted my first hipster taco and realized it was amazing and definitely worth the money. The fish tacos were especially good. 

The other day, we went to LuxBite, which is a cute boutique dessert shop in South Yarra. 
I ordered a raspberry filled chocolate dessert with white chocolate hearts. 
Peter and his boss both had macaroons that they claimed were the best they had ever tasted, so obviously I'll need to go back! 

Another recent favorite is N2 Gelato, which I visited with friends a few weeks ago. 
I have a thing for ordering gelato that incorporates syringes, I guess. N2 is a quirky place and has abandoned the standard table-and-chairs in favor of faux grass. Really. You can kind of see it in the picture below. 
My friend Sylvie and me with our gelato! 

So, if you're around Melbourne, hit up these spots! If you're not, come visit :). 


  1. I notice your food posts are a little heavy on desserts! The concept of a dessert bar is something that needs to catch on here.

  2. I've often wondered how to get that particular, a dessert critic!



Welcome! I started Laura and Peter Down Under in July 2014 when my husband and I moved from the States to Melbourne, Australia for his job. I blog about expat life, our travels, food, and whatever else comes to mind. Follow along on our adventures Down Under!
