Big meatballs on Flinders Lane
Meatball & Wine Bar on Flinders Lane is bringing the Italian back. Just opened in early September, the modern meatball concept restaurant is a rising star in the Melbourne culinary scene.

In the hip yet welcoming atmosphere, hearty meatballs, matching wine, and warm service are perfected to the level of sophistication. The experience you'll have at this restaurant is flawless, but the most distinction about it is perhaps the simplicity of the one-page menu, which is sure to please young, old, and in-the-middle. You get to build your own perfect meatball dish.

The photo above was my custom-made fish meatballs with green pesto sauce on the bed of broccoli. If not fish, selection can be made from beef, pork, chicken or veggie. Red, green, and white sauces are available, and a number of side choices are sure to give you that indecisive moment.

Sidekicks are as ballsy as the main dish. Meatball & Wine Bar cures their own beef jerky in their own flavours. "Ninja" jerkies, possibly soy sauce dipped, and mildly spicy "San Diego" are delivered to table in simple paper bags.

Give this new city gem a try before their wait list starts to get long. They are open for lunch and dinner. Breakfast balls are starting, too.
