Winter has arrived, and there’s nothing like some food to warm you up from the inside. Here are some winter warming dishes that soothe the soul.
Nothing like spices and chilli to warm you up from the inside. One of the best curries I’ve had is at Mukka, a local favourite for Indian. My pick is the goat curry for its flavoursome sauce and tender protein.
As we know, fire isn’t just good for toasting our marshmallows and bodies, but also for cooking up some tasty barbecued meat. American BBQ joints are becoming more popular in Melbourne, and one notable discovery of late is Burn City Smokers, which serve up a mean beef rib. They mainly do pop-ups and festivals, but are currently over at the kitchens at the Grand Hyatt for a limited time.
Pasta is the perfect candidate for packing in those Winter carbs. There are many fine pasta places, but one of my favourites is Tipo 00. The pasta is made in-house and perfectly cooked to al dente. I’m already longing for a return visit just thinking about it.
With a choice of milk and dark hot chocolate, chocolate lovers will be satisfied with this thick and rich drink at Chokolait. They’ve also got some other desserts (including a new match pavlova) to satisfy any remaining desire for sweets.
