Foreword

For a food blogger, having a decent wishlist is one of the prerequisites. Trying to get through that list in a timely fashion is a totally different matter. Obstacle 1: the wishlist continues to grow much faster than one person can possibly dine at simultaneously. Obstacle 2: favourite places have to be revisited to quench cravings. Although being able to cross items off a list is quite satisfying, let’s just say this will be list that one was never meant to ever have firm reins of…

Anyhow, below is a mix of several lists / indexes / maps, to help one navigate the food scene in Melbourne and abroad. Let me know if there’s any way I can improve it!

You can also see my most up to date wishlist on : Urbanspoon.
