The Melbourne restaurants and bars that deliver straight to your door
As the Melbourne dining out culture shifts to eating at home, residents are still craving the comfort of their favourite local restaurants and bars. Here, we present our pick of the Melbourne restaurants and bars offering takeaway and delivery
If you have a special occasion, or if you just fancy some fine dining in your pyjamas, Attica - a regular on the World’s 50 Best restaurant list - has launched its At Home service. So set the table with the ’good plates’ and choose from one of three menus – Modern, Classic or Family – and enjoy chef Ben Shewry’s simple, produce-focused Indigenous Australian food that includes seared kangaroo with saltbush or spice-crusted lamb shoulder.
For those craving hearty French comfort food, Bar Margaux is offering a limited delivery and takeaway menu to heat and eat at home. Order in warming classics like the coq au vin, served with creamy pomme puree, or the white bean and pork cassoulet and – even better – pair it with a bottle from their extensive wine selection.
Take advantage of the fact that – for once – you don’t have to queue for hours to get a taste of Chin Chin’s wagyu beef rendang curry and head over it its website to order and collect all your favourites from the prawn and lemongrass spring rolls to the pad thai noodles.
Let’s not beat about the bush: if you are going to order takeaway pizza, make sure it’s from Connie’s, a hole-in-the-wall stand inside the Russell Street Heartbreaker Bar. Inspired by the iconic pizza shops of NYC, there are six styles to choose from, including the classic pepperoni pie.
Daughter In Law and Mrs Singh
The restaurant and wine bar from chef and restaurateur Jessi Singh, both Daughter In Law and Mrs Singh will satisfy your curry and wine cravings with a variety of survival packs that include a number of dishes like butter chicken, Aunty Dahl, a naan basket and rice.
As its name suggests, this restaurant serves up classic Japanese dishes with a heavy dose of contemporary innovation. Don’t miss out on the slow-cooked pork belly don served with a free range onsen egg, yuzu salt on biodynamic rice, or the mini meatball katsu-sando served with tonkatsu sauce and kewpie mayo. Wash it all down with a neko negroni, made with strawberry gin, campari, schochu and vermouth.
