The rarest of the rare, the Flamin' Bull restaurant, which is also known as the Tjanabi, is the only Australian indigenous restaurant in Melbourne. Tjanabi is an Aboriginal word that literally means "joyous occasion." Indeed, for all outback trekking lovers of bush tucker, the fact this Carlton eatery is alive and well is definitely a joyous occasion.

Surprisingly the food is quite affordable considering its scant availability. Up for grabs at the Flamin' Bull are famous traditional indigenous dishes, including possum, eel, kangaroo, wallaby, yabbies, emu, prawns, and crocodile. There is, of course, a vegetarian menu at this restaurant.

The Flamin' Bull is dedicated to Aboriginal culture and history, which is why there is indigenous music and entertainment for the enjoyment of all patrons. A visit to this restaurant is destined to be unique and unforgettable. You might even think you're somewhere in the outback, hundreds of kilometres away from the nearest neighbour.

I thought there was a Tjanabi close to Fed Square on Flinders St. Are these two different?
