Meatball & Wine Bar, Melbourne CBD


Meatball, located in the ever-trendy Flinders Lane, was a random choice for us one day whilst out shopping in the city.

Having been invited to enjoy a meal at British India, we were not going to miss the opportunity on our most recent visit to Adelaide.  Entering British India you will notice an eclectic mix of decorations or animals to be exact; taxidermy takes center stage and the eclectic mix continues on the menu.  From sweet…

My brother and I, both having plenty of spare time during the day, decided to head down to the South Melbourne Markets for a gander.  After a walk around the markets, which were great, packed with delicious foods and popup stalls and of course eating a couple of their famous Dim Sims, we stumbled across…
