Wince's Faves

A list of some of the things that I absolutely LOVE to eat around Melbourne. Some, so good that I've eaten more than 10 times (and counting...) yet never seem to get tired of.


Again, this is NOT a list of "Melbourne's BEST" because I don't have the credentials to claim such a thing. I am merely sharing Food that I truly enjoy. After all, dining is meant to be a very personal experience anyway.
