Take the French word for street and nab the 'Co' from Collins and what do you get? Melbourne's latest cul de snack. Rue and Co has arrived to step up the takeaway game. From May 2, this CBD laneway will be occupied by three of Melbourne’s favourite eateries: Jimmy Grants , St Ali and Kong (the new Korean and Japanese barbecue joint brought to you by the creators of Chin Chin).

Perhaps you’ve already noticed the 35 meter-high face towering above the city? The three eateries will be operating out of specially-renovated shipping containers and embracing all things Melbourne. The set-up features the largest street artwork in Australia, created by RONE, as well as a digital installation by new media artist, Joel Zika.

 Brace yourself for souvas, great coffee and traditional kimchi on the run.
