The Northern Suburbs may not be at the forefront of your mind when it’s time to make lunch or dinner plans in Melbourne, but its time that changed. Covering a wide spectrum of cuisines and dining experiences, the Northern Suburbs offer a mouth-watering selection of restaurants. For visitors, the detour will pay off, and locals may yet discover a new gem.
The cosy Woodlands Hotel offers meals with a difference, along with a vast range of Victorian craft beer. The beer garden is a favourite among those who want to wind down or have a nice afternoon drink. Rustic dining rooms are filled with a warm atmosphere. The combination of meats cooked to your liking, especially the wagyu burger, and interesting contemporary sides makes the hotel a favourite.
The Abyssinian offers a range of flavoursome Eritrean and Ethiopian delights. If you enjoy trying something new, this is the place for you. The menu offers a range of vegetarian food, lactose intolerant food, and options for people with small or big appetites. There are hearty curries, salads, and stews, but if you are indecisive, your best option is the Chef’s combination, a range of curries and dishes all served on a huge amount of injera bread.
