Chew Burgers fancy wagyu burger joint next to the Raccoon Club up in Preston (oh.. those onion rings!).

Harper & Blohm artisan cheese shop in Essendon run by former Calendar Cheese Co doyenne, Olivia Sutton.

Inspired by a trip to New York and by the building's colourful past as a social club for Italian migrants from the 1950s-70s, Pallino Bar in Thornbury is becoming my favourite new local. They're all about the Italian spritzes, craft beer on tap, great antipasto and there's a bocce green in the beer garden out back. Read more here.

Stylish Seoul Soul just brought its classy mod-Korean cheap eats to High Street, Northcote (image below). I've been in a few times already and am loving their spicy pork bibimbap.
