This blog has been established because the Melbourne Cheap Eats has lost its way. Sure a $40pp meal (without wine) is good value. But it is hardly cheap.
Confessions of a Food Nazi, who inspired this blog, made the observation on the Moroccan Soup Bar:
“You can do most things there except book a table for 2, eat meat or imbibe in liquor. I am not entirely sure you could fill up as easily at Bar Lourinha, Cafe Zum Zum or Mecca Bah for twice the price. Sure there will always be cheap items on the menu but rarely are they enough to satisfy. Of course, in such establishments we are just talking about food, when adding a bar tab to the bill – cheap is long gone.”
The rule is that here th emeal must be under $20 in total per person.
