Queen Victoria Market, Melbourne




It’s a fairly standard norm for food bloggers to blog about the Queen Victoria Market (QVM) in Melbourne and I am no exception. We first visit the dry food section and slowly eat our way up to the meat and seafood section. This landmark of Melbourne impressed me alot because of the way the shops are structure and the variety of food it offers.

The Market is open every day of the week except Mondays and Wednesdays. On Wednesday evenings in the summer months, there is a night market which offers dining, bars, live entertainment and a variety of other stalls.



Weisswurst with Sauerkraut from the Deli Hall

Weisswurst is German sausage, Sauerkraut is shredded cabbage fermented in brine, so basically to simplified things this is a damn good sausage roll. The sausage has a really crusty skin and the roll was nice and hot.


Bread rolls and all kind of snacks



Meat store which have fresh wild rabbit for sell

The meat are nicely prepared and marinated with all different kinds of herbs, Chicken wraps, fresh wild rabbit, they even have chicken & prawn dim sims…umm… impressive!




Cheese , olive oil and Salami


The heaven of Olives


KoKo Black in QVM


prosciutto and Jamon, the most expensive I saw was $425/kg which is aged 24 months


The hearty selections of meats

We were so tempted to get some of those nice Scott fillet and Wagyu beef score 7 for $65/kg, thinking back and forth how the hell can we transport it back to Sydney and just saw the meat store selling cooler bag for $3.5 and we finally managed to find some ice packs from Big W too. So here the crazy two of us bought 1kg of Scott fillet, few slices of the Wagyu beef and some chunky pork chop with bones.


Cappuccino to clear our pallet and get ready for the next round


 Spicy lamb borek

Our eating journey didn’t just stop here, we saw everyone was sitting on the benches eating this little babies and we were walking round and round to find it. This is like a turkish bread stuffs with lamb mince and garlic and heaps of herbs. The flavours was strong and the bread was fluffily soft.





Jam doughnuts, $4.50 for 6

The highlight of the day was these jam doughnuts, the doughnuts van is a veritable institution at the QVM, cooking hand rolled, jam filled, sugar crusted yeasty little beauties for over 50 years. So don’t waste your calories on Doughnut king anymore.
