Want to dine like a local? Turn off the main streets and into Melbourne's laneways. In unassuming spaces, tucked away upstairs, downstairs, and behind unmarked doors and bustling queues, you'll find some of Melbourne's favourite eateries. Explore the city's labyrinth and you'll discover high-end dining, late night bites, hole-in-the-wall eateries, and plenty of bars and cafes in between.
Flinders Lane is a perfect place to start. Home to its own culinary heroes – Chin Chin, Supernormal, Cumulus Inc. and Coda – its arteries offer even more. Try high-end Indian inspiration at Tonka in Duckboard Place, pan-Asian flavours with punch at Lucy Liu in Oliver Lane, Peruvian that rocks at Pastuso in ACDC Lane and Frank Comorra's famous tapas at Movida, Hosier Lane.
Off Bourke Street, Meyers Place, Crossley Street, Chinatown's laneways, Market and Corrs Lanes and Russell Place you'll find a world of fine dining delights.
There are hidden treasures in tiny laneways across the city. Just turn the corner and explore.
