If you haven’t been brought up on the stuff, you’ve probably been scared off Vegemite. But for an excellent entry point try the Vegemite curry at Sunda, a Southeast Asian spot that kind of looks like a construction site, all exposed brick and steel beams. That Vegemite curry started out as a special, but now you can add it to the $130 four-course prix-fixe menu any night. And you absolutely should (technically, you can’t really say you’ve been to Melbourne if you haven't eaten this dish). See also: Aru, a similar concept but more fire-fuelled, by the same chef.

It's all about the Umami e Pepe at this low-waste city eatery.

The 20-course menus at Attica in Ripponlea are full of adventurous takes on Australian ingredients.
