Living as a student and muso in Melbourne, the city I adore in all it's various aspects!

This was one of the best finds and it happened on one of my very first busking jaunts in the city.
A drummer I have been seen on and off around the place (even in the most random of locations including looking like a homeless man busking on a gas bottle on the bridge). One day I was invited to busk at Flinders St. Station and as per busking tradition we went and used our earnings for lunch at Crossways, a vegetarian eatery run by the Hare Krishna. It's always busy; full of all types: students, hippies, tourists and business people.
Why this place is brilliant:
5.50 all-you-can-eat for students (and trust me, you can never eat all of it) including a large helping of rice and curry (changes for every day of the week, Satay Vegetables on Monday is my favourite), dessert in the form of Halva and custard, all topped with Papadams.You won't need to eat breakfast beforehand.
The choice of drink is either traditional Lassi or this orange cordial which, I don't know why, but it must be the perfect blend or something because it always hits the spot.
