Araliya in St Kilda is Sam Wedande’s crowning achievement. The chef first learned to cook in his native city of Kandy in Sri Lanka’s Central Province. Then he graduated to five-star restaurants in the UK, then to Melbourne’s Hilton in the mid 1980s before opening five restaurants in Melbourne over…

You might walk past this one on the street, since the design doesn't shout out 'Amazing Sri Lankan food' - but it is amazing, and lovers of a spice kick will especially enjoy it.

Pizzatent
“There’s no confusion over what goes on at Pizza e Birra. For owners Dario D’Agostino and Joe Codespoti it’s all about creating real Italian food, just like back home in Abruzzo. Accordingly, Pizza e Birra has an Italian trattoria atmosphere. Each customer is treated like extended family. It’s lively, welcoming and you’re guaranteed to leave full, just like after dinner at nonna’s. As you’d expect, pizza is the cornerstone of the menu, with 29 different choices. The Patata, with potato, pancetta, caramelised onion, smoked scamorza, fior di latte and rosemary is the star of the Bianca (white) section. When it comes to Rossa (tomato-based) pizza, it’s hard to go past the Friarielli with pork sausage; and the simple Bufala, with buffalo mozzarella and basil. Past pizza there’s cozze gratinate (baked mussels); gnocchi campagnola with gorgonzola and walnuts; and a handful of other pastas. Both pizza bases and gnocchi can be made gluten-free with banana flour imported from the Philippines. This ingredient is a rarity on a menu that’s otherwise dominated by Italian imports. That goes for drinks, too. Birra Moretti is on tap alongside seven other beers and a locally made cider, Sidro Del Bosco. Most wines come from Abruzzo vineyard Podere Castorani, which the owners have family ties with. Expect montepulciano, trebbiano, garganega, sangiovese and other classic Italian varietals. One tip: order the Fior Di Fragola before you leave. It’s a strawberry pizza with Chantilly cream, dehydrated mint and a gorgeous pink crust. Pizza e Birra might be a traditional sort of place, but this thing is made for Instagram.”

Bar
“From the mastermind behind Port Melbourne's Moshi Moshi, Machi is the second restaurant for Japanese-born chef, Tatsuya Yamazaki, whose impeccable skills are the focal point of this sleek bar and restaurant. His traditional technique in preparing sushi and sashimi, along with the constant urge to experiment with non-traditional dishes such as the miso baked barramundi, has seen his creations served in Japan, Spain and London. Quality is of tremendous importance, so weekly visits from a Wagyu beef specialist ensures nothing less than perfection, while using local produce and suppliers is considered essential. His traditional Kyoto-style recipes for preparing sushi rice, miso soup and pork gyoza set a high-standard, while his creative approach and keen eye for detail turns simple food into works of art. Collections of plants, local artworks and light installations decorate the space. Neutral colours and materials, such as Douglas-fir timber, fill the L-shaped room, while the stark contrast between dark-wood tables and chairs, ceilings and floors, white walls and open-kitchen means the food remains the centre of attention. With Asahi on tap, and considered cocktail and sake lists, Machi is a quiet icon of this St Kilda strip.”

Beer Bar
“The George Hotel, established in 1857, is an important part of St Kilda’s history. When Liam Ganley turned it into Freddie Wimpoles, he fitted out the 150-seat space as a hunter lodge–style bar, with dark timbers, a feature wall of beer cans and antler chandeliers. There’s a mix of seating options including large communal tables if you’re with a big group, square four-seaters if you’re looking for something more intimate, and bar tables and stools if you’re only in for a drink. Beer is the main offering. The name, Freddie Wimpoles, pays homage to a Frederick Wimpole who purchased The George in 1873, became mayor of St Kilda in 1886 and director of the Melbourne Co-operative Brewing Company (now Carlton & United Breweries) in the late 1800s. Twelve beers, both local and international, rotate through the taps. An extensive range of canned and bottled brews is also available. If you don’t fancy beer, there are 180 spirits to choose from. An American deli–style menu of subs, sandwiches and hot dogs complement the drink offerings. There’s a classic Reuben and the Traditional French Dip (a roast-beef and horseradish sandwich with beef juice for dipping). A vegetarian sub with roasted eggplant, Swiss mushroom and vintage cheddar is also available.”
