Ja­nine's Favourites

Melbourne Official Visitor Guide - - Itineraries -

We asked Ja­nine to nom­i­nate some of her favourite places in the city and be­yond:

Restau­rant

My favourite is Ken­zan. I love Ja­panese food and it is authen­tic — you feel as though you could be in Ja­pan.

Cafe

I live in Pas­coe Vale South and a new lo­cal has opened near us in Brunswick West called The Post­mistress. We were really im­pressed by the qual­ity of food and the at­ten­tion we re­ceived.

Live Mu­sic Venue

Be­ing out­side at the Sid­ney Myer Mu­sic Bowl see­ing Mid­night Oil a few months ago was re­mark­able. There’s some­thing about be­ing out­side with that crowd that is an amaz­ing ex­pe­ri­ence.

Pam­per

I had a few mas­sages last year at Penin­sula Hot Springs in the lead-up to the Vault open­ing.

View

When I walk the dog in the morn­ing, the view from Coo­nans Hill, of the city wak­ing up in the dis­tance, is awe­some.

Bar

An­gela, who set up and runs In­de­pen­dent

Wine Store in Rye on the Morn­ing­ton Penin­sula, has such an ex­cel­lent knowl­edge of wine — not just Morn­ing­ton Penin­sula wine ei­ther, but wine and beer from around Victoria.

Shop­ping

Syd­ney Road in Brunswick, be­cause I like any­thing hand­made or vin­tage, but my favourite store there is The Olive Grove Studios, where all the clothes are made by lo­cal artists.
