Rumi, a vibrant Middle Eastern eatery that recently relocated on upper Lygon St. in Melbourne is a fantastic restaurant that offers more than just delicious Lebanese, Persian, and other Moorish Middle Eastern specialties.  The ambiance here is superb and although the restaurant decor itself does not scream Middle Eastern, the adornments that owners Natalie and Joseph Abboud used in decorating the restaurant are authentic Levantine pieces. It is a great place to enjoy good company while sharing a family style hearty meal. Everything they offer will surely please the palate but stars on the menu include the quail kebab, spiced lamb shoulder, haloumi and feta filled pastry (sigara boregi), and their house cured beef bastourma. They also have flavourful gluten free and vegetarian options. Local, Lebanese, and other Middle-Eastern Wines, beers, and various Araks (distilled spirits) make up the drink list. Food legend Anthony Bourdain himself has sung praises about the food he sampled here and featured on his television show.

Rumi is open daily for dinner from 6 – 10 pm.

Van Mai is a traditional style Vietnamese restaurant on the Vietnamese strip of Victoria Street in Richmond. The casual and friendly family-run eatery offers a wide array of Asian and Vietnamese dishes that are as authentic as it gets. Noodles, soups, seafood, and fall off the bone meats are just bursting with refreshing Asian flavours. They also offer family style dishes that are ideal for group dining.

 

Anthony Bourdain loved this restaurant when he last visited Melbourne and even featured the eatery in his television show sampling dishes like red snapper in ginger and garlic sauce, plum sauced stuffed fried chicken, and traditional pho. The braised beef or pork served a choice of special sauces and the sizzling Mongolian lamb are also highly recommended eats.


Van Mai serves up lip smacking Asian and Vietnamese cuisine daily from 11 am ‘til 11 pm.
