Yeah, that name is everywhere now. Some are better than others.



It's well loved by a lot of people. Go early though, choices can run out during the day.



The Springvale store almost always have a queue on weekends (I don't go past there on weekdays). 10-20 mins is the norm.

The paella at the QVM on night markets is Simply Spanish - the same one as the South Melbourne one. This "branch" is quite ok.

Tourists focus a lot on Phillip Island itself but often neglect San Remo just over the bridge so it's worth keeping in mind that something you need/want may also be readily available on the mainland.

I will go as early as 8am for it :p

Go earlier, before lunch and on a weekday preferably...

I'll be going melbourne in may so if anyone still has great recommendations, do keep them coming. Best if food is more on budget side and still MUST try.

Don't think it will close la, just know that there's development around its area..

if close, the traders will riot..

Yes, excluding drink. Chinese eateries will provide Chinese tea for free. Sometimes even soup, during dinner time.

I feel that Tokyo would be slightly cheaper.

Are there any Australian dishes that you recommended?

There's not really an official australian dish..

chicken parma, schnitzel and meat pies are served up in pub which the locals always go for..

Personally not a fan of them..

If you're in a bakery, you can look for a piece of vanilla slice or a lamington as well. You can also look for things like kangaroo, wallaby, or emu. Not easy to find, I suppose, hardly anyone eat them either, but at least you're eating Australian wildlife.

I feel main difference is that there are more choices in Japan if you are on a budget, but taste is still good. In Melbourne, minimum 10-15 SGD, and most of the time they are just okay.
