Things may be a little out of sorts at the moment, but that doesn’t mean you need to go without your foodie fix. We’ve found some of the best spots in Carlton delivering burger feasts, caffeine and treats.
Pidapipo ice cream by the litre
Invite Lygon Street legends into your home (well, at least to the door) when you order a tub of Pidapipo’s finest on Uber Eats. Mix flavours, order waffle cones on the side or treat yourself to a thick Nutella drizzle on top.
For more than 40 years, Tiamo has been serving steaming bowls of pasta, wine in tumblers, pizza and tiramisu in a homey Italian atmosphere. Just because you can’t dine in at the moment, doesn’t mean you can’t have your own Tiamo moment at home. Order in a big bowl of their spicy pasta amatriciana or indulge your inner Italian with a traditional margherita pizza. Order on Uber Eats.
In these uncertain times, we all need some comforting. And the team at Carlton stalwart, Brunetti, have you covered. Grab something savoury, try the home-made gnocchi with Bolognese sauce, accompanied by a Caprese salad. Then finish your feast with their decadent chocolate souffle. A flourless chocolate sponge with chocolate cream, covered in a rich chocolate ganache. Yum. Order on Uber Eats.
Continue your burger tour of Melbourne, takeaway style. Carlton’s brand new Mofo Burgers has a menu that won’t disappoint. You’ll find the usual suspects along with vego burgers, pork crackling creations and a cheese loaded sides menu. Find them on Uber Eats.
King and Godfree
Feed the family and fuel the fridge with King and Godfree’s ready-to-heat meals. Order eggplant parmigiana, fresh gnocchi and veal shoulder cannelloni. And fill your shelves with deli essentials like marinated olives, cheese and vino. Score free delivery on orders over $50.
Heartattack and Vine
A friendly neighbourhood spot, Heartattack and Vine is one of Carlton’s quiet achievers. Open for all manner of takeaway treats, they’ve also just opened an in-house grocery store. And locals can get their wares delivered. Noisette croissants, top shelf wines and mouthwatering prosciutto packs are just the beginning.
Attention all hopeless ramen-tics: Hakata Gensuke is open for takeaway and delivery. Order god fire ramen or subtle dashi broth bowls, piled high with pork belly, soft boiled eggs, fresh garnishes and more. Add on gyoza, karaage and a cheeky asahi bev for oishii Izakaya vibes. Order on Uber Eats or call ahead to place a pick up order.
DOC might be known for their pizza and pasta, but they do a pretty impressive 10-serve tiramisu as well. Their recently launched online deli offers takeaway and delivery of the creamy treat, along with heaps of other foodie treats. It’s just what the doctor ordered.
Universal Pizza takes the pub grub game and turns it on its head. Alongside cheesy garlic pizzas and classic schnittys, you can score loaded tiramisu thick shakes and vegan parmas. Pizzas are an absolute steal too, with any two medium pies going for just $20. And who can go past the puffies – a fluffy baked treat of traditional choux pastry loaded with creamy custard.
Serving up a whole heap of deliciousness, Brew Culture has you covered. Think coffee, juices, bagels, toasties and all manner of work-from-home goodies. Try something more traditional, like the halloumi and mushroom triangle. Or go with something a little more adventurous, like their tasty teriyaki chicken, or satay tofu bagels. Yes please. Order on Uber Eats.
Milk the Cow
You’ve gotta take the gouda with the bad. And the fine folk at Milk the Cow are ensuring you do not go cheese-less throughout this entire ordeal. Bless them. Delivering to your door all the essentials such as wine, charcuterie, beer, bread and cheese. Take your pick of scrumptious cheeses from across Victoria and the world or maybe a full hamper. Spend your isolation in a delicious dairy daze.
Metropolitan Melbourne is now in Stage 4 restrictions. Please note businesses may close or run out of stock at short notice: check with individual businesses. Make sure that you live within 5kms of the business before ordering for takeaway or click and collect. Observe the curfew from 8pm to 5am, and other restrictions.
