Blurb —

From the beaches of Brighton to the craft beers of Brunswick, there’s something for everyone in the suburbs of Melbourne. Flavours of Urban Melbourne takes you on an adventure through the diverse range of restaurants, cafes and bars that call this city home, leading you hand-in-hand from Roman in Richmond to Korean in Kensington and every culture in between. The hospitality experience continues to the home, where you can re-create your dining experience with signature recipes from each venue. So what are you waiting for?
