Big Esso


Federation Square, Melbourne
View WebsiteEarn 3X Points

Native Australian produce isn’t hard to find in this city if you know where to look. But Big Esso is one of the few places championing it that’s also Torres Strait Islander owned-and-run. Try the deep-fried crocodile dusted in saltbush and pepperberry, wild boar with native lemongrass, and the charred peach, rivermint, and candided quandong salad. Booze (like the Green Ant-Tini) is mostly Aussie, too.
