If you are staying west of the city in Melbourne, it’s well worth heading to Footscray to explore the fresh food market.
The market particularly reflects the style of the local Vietnamese population but it’s a favourite across a range of cultures. It’s a whole sense experience – colours, tastes, smells.
There’s also plenty of opportunity to stop for a snacker meal and enjoy some great Vietnamese or Philippino food.
Not far from the market, the world’s cuisines are on your doorstep at a whole list of cheap and excellent eateries.
One of the best is Lalibela Ethiopian Restaurant.
