Take a stroll down to Burma Lane

This Little Collins Street staple is still going strong after four years of spicy good times. Rather than focusing solely on South East Asian cuisine, Burma Lane is all about slicing, spicing and dicing local produce, while embracing Melbourne's multicultural background. 

Executive chef John McLeay's colourful menu is a mix of fun bite-sized starters (think duck, shiitake mushroom and water chestnut doughnuts and cumin lamb potato cakes with minty yoghurt and chilli jam) and jazz-hands substantial dishes like soft shell crab and slow cooked lamb shoulder. Can't decide or in a big group? Go for the set Feed Me menu, which showcases the restaurant's best snacks and mains. 

On the cocktail front it's all about bright, herb-infused numbers like the Hit Me Baby One More Thyme, with pomegranate, thyme syrup and soda or the Tequiling Me Softly, which takes El Jimador tequila and smashes it together with coriander, pineapple, agave and lime. Going booze-free? Don't fret, they've got you covered with fruity mocktails.

Yum! The smoked eel on a crispy potato cake is DELICIOUS. Also really loved the nori noodles with squid and miso - sounds kind of odd - but tasted soo good!  My carnivorous burger loving companion couldn't get enough of the wagyu cheese burger dumplings. Didn't try the cocktails but enjoyed a couple of interesting & delicious wines by the glass. Thanks for a fun night out Burma Lane! If you book remember to ask for a view of the super cool wall - moving images and interesting art work while you dine.
