Freelance writer living in and reviewing Melbourne's West.

Sunshine is one of Melbourne's best kept secrets. Inner city and full of period homes on massive blocks, Sunshine is home to a fantastically diverse community of people from Sudan, India, Vietnam, Malta and Cyprus. This diversity is most evident along Hampshire Road, where cheap Vietnamese, Indian, African and European grocery stores and eating venues line up.
One of my favorites is the Selena Hot Bread shop where one can buy three rice papers rolls for only $4.00. You can buy a set of three prawn or three vegatarian, with either a spicy sauce or a fish sauce. Not only are they cheap, they are generous in size. The silky rice paper bursts from the delicious ingredients inside.
