Earl Canteen, Melbourne
Earl Canteen’s product is probably Melbourne’s pinnacle in the one hand meal. Baguettes, sangers and wraps aren’t meant to be this good. But they are when they are stuffed with fillings that could scraped from the bread, plated and served at a fine bistro.
Pork Belly: crisp skin Otway pork belly, apple, cabbage & fennel coleslaw, wilted silverbeet
Sticky Lamb: braised lamb, peas, cauliflower, cheese crumble
With others such as gorgonzola pumpkin, wagyu meatball and lime poached chicken, one trip to the Earl won’t be enough.
4 / 5 yums!
Where? 500 Bourke Street (enter via Lt Bourke), Melbourne, VIC
