If you haven't tried one of Saluministi's famed porchetta paninis, take this as a sign to. The Italian salumi bar has lost a lot due to customers pulling out of catering deals ahead of the lockdown and could really use your support. Pop down to its CBD or Docklands venue now.

Nana Thai might be making waves for its central Thai-style moojum (hotpot) and mookata (barbecue), but its lunch specials are well worth trying too. Sample the likes of a mid-week pad thai with prawns, or, for a spicier option (because Nana Thai doesn't hold back on the sweltering Thai chilli) pad gra prow – Thai basil and chilli stir-fried with beef served atop a bed of rice. Order by phoning 0452645165 or via DoorDash or UberEats.

It’s probably one of the worst-kept secrets in the Melbourne dining scene, but chef and (former) owner Tomotaka Ishizuka left Ishizuka right after it was awarded two hats for the 2019 Good Food Guide. Ishizuka walked away from his 16-seater, hidden kaiseki (degustation) restaurant commanding $235 a head, moved up the street to a narrow, neon-filled shop front and opened an izakaya with food revolving around the bincho tan- a grill fuelled by premium, dense Japanese charcoal. This place is known as Bincho Boss. Now the team behind Bincho Boss are offering Izakaya at Home. Experience the izakaya in the confines of your own dining room with sushi and sashimi platters together with premium sake from Dassai. Order online for pick-up in store or delivery, and prior to 3pm for same-day delivery.
