Haci’s Kebabs is brilliant for those who do not wish to crawl into the golden arches of Maccas on the opposite side of the road. Very fresh and friendly service, it is a definite for kebab craving on the way home.
Intersection Café is certainly a favourite amongst uni students struggling back to their dorm rooms. Get there after 2am and ask for the ‘magic box’. You get whatever can fit in a small pizza box for a dollar!
The Real Greek is the kebab pitstop you need to make after bar hopping down Brunswick Street. For the starving amongst you, attempt a ‘Stan the Man’: lamb, tomato, onion, fetta, tzaziki and chips all rolled into pita bread. Do it.
Danny’s Burgers is excellent if you want bang for your buck; It is well priced and you can get double or triple ‘with the lot’s’ if you feel up to the challenge. It’s been around since 1945 and we can assure you they’ve mastered the art of burger making.
Town Hall Kebabs, on the site of a car wash, is just a genius idea full stop. If someone is sober enough to drive your drunk ass home, why not show your appreciation by shouting them a souva and a buffer?
Colonel Tan’s, located in Revolver upstairs, has everything from light snacks to full meals with distinct Asian flavour. A dangerous advantage to this kitchen is if you are looking to party the whole night through, Revolver is one of the only places in Melbourne that such a feat can be achieved. Fuel up and go forth!
Yellow Bird Café is more for a planned late dinner rather than a last resort, it’s open until 1am with generous portions and no pretention. We recommend checking out their Mexican cocktail list if you can manage one last drink.
Lord of the Fries is a chain but it is trustworthy to satisfy your fried fetish. With 12 different sauces to smother your chips in, you’re spoiled for choice, and there are burgers and hot dogs also available for the famished.
New York Pizza Deli serves up slices of pizza so ginormous that you can only eat it by folding in half, otherwise suffer the consequences of having piping hot melted cheese dribbling down your arm. Margareta and Peperoni are by far the favourites, and one slice is usually enough.
The champion: It's a dead-set tie!
