Pepper Lunch, Hawthorn

Peppper Lunch is one of my favorite QSR chains for its convenience, deliciousness, and affordability. The menu is an amalgamation of Japanese, Korean, and Chinese flavours, which combined is somewhat reminiscent of a Hong Kong diner. 

Popular with students, office workers, and families, Pepper Lunch has something for everyone. Most of the dishes are served on a sizzling hot plate, and my favorite thing to do at Pepper Lunch is to add extra cheese to whatever I'm ordering.

Platform 270 at DoubleTree by Hilton, Melbourne CBD

This trendy eatery, located inside Double Tree by Hilton, features an open kitchen, unique dishes made with local produce, and comfortable surroundings. When they say local, they really mean local, with ingredients sourced from their very own rooftop herb garden and a bee hive producing their own honey.

The menu is always seasonal and does its best to showcase what Melbourne has to offer.  The current winter menu features dishes such as braised rabbit, BBQ ox tongue, and roasted spatchcock. Also, like all good hotel restaurants do, there is a whole section devoted to steaks, including a 300g grass fed scotch. 

Last but not to say the least, is my favorite section of the menu, desserts! Here, don't go past the warm honey poached pear, and definitely try the five spice chocolate panna cotta served with honeycomb.

On It Burgers, Abbotsford

I discovered this place by chance via Uber Eats and have been quite addicted ever since! The burgers buns are soft, but just slightly dense, and are dusted with sesame. 

For those with a curious streak, try a burger with a black bun. The Spicy Chick features crunchy fried chicken, sriracha mayo, coleslaw and lettuce. 

There is also the Black Beard, made up of soft shell crab, coleslaw and coriander, sriracha, and a dash of hero sauce, held within a black bun. It's the perfect combination of sweet, savory and spicy.
