The vibe of the place resembles that of an authentic South East Asian food hall, and there’s a good reason for that. Chris, the owner, spent three years trekking through Asia ‘researching’ to capture the vibe and bring it back to Melbourne, and he nailed it. Amazing shareable meals, great beer and wine along with a casual but cool vibe makes it the perfect dinner spot.

A simple but tasty menu, our pick is Betty’s Classic with a side of french fries and sriracha mayo. Oh, and if you were wondering what ‘concrete’ refers to, only a rich and creamy custard ice-cream that Betty likes to whip up in her spare time. We suggest the Cookie Butter; vanilla frozen custard, crumbed Biscoff cookies, cookie butter and cinnamon sugar. You can thank us later.
