Went back to Sydney after a long trip around China and Melbourne. Wanted something spicy. Yok Yor came to mind with their authentic Issan-influenced Thai food.
The Meat & Wine Co is intimate and sophisticated inside the heritage-listed hotel, where contemporary interior design paired with subtle African influences make the restaurant enticingly unique. Rustic wooden walls, luxurious leather seating, and stone features make this the ideal setting for business meetings and romantic dinners alike.
Modern Asian food in a sprawling space with bar, courtyard and tables next to a huge red lantern, Red Spice Road received a lot of accolades from Melbournites and other gourmands that throttled through the beautiful back lanes.

Located on the beautiful Watson Bay and a 20min ferry ride from Circular Quay (F7 to North Shores), there’s this little gem called Doyle’s. Once you get to the place, do not get mixed up with their fish and chips stand and a beach club next to it.
Another good eat in Melbourne. Very down to earth and relatively reasonably priced.
