Best late-night eats: Entrecôte
131 Domain Rd, South Yarra; 6 Alfred Pl, Melbourne CBD
Late-night dining in Melbourne isn’t all pepperoni pizza and dirty bird; feasting on steak frites at either of the two Entrecôte restaurants is a much classier, Euro-inspired affair. Open until midnight every day (minus Sundays in Alfred Pl), a serving of the premium Hopkins River sirloin, side salad, and bottomless fries will sate any nocturnal protein cravings.
735 Malvern Rd, Armadale
From the team behind Northcote favourite Barry, Mammoth is a relative newcomer to the Melbourne brunch scene, winning fans with an all-day menu that's full of surprises. The cherry lamington puffed pancake (with coconut crunch, cherry jam, and dark chocolate ice cream) is a treat for any sweet tooth, while the WTF combo of the lobster donut burger with green mango and papaya slaw, cucumber jam, and Sriracha kimpi mayo is pure Instagram fodder. A side order of bacon-and-egg popcorn is a must.
