Queen Victoria Market
Churros, BBQ, Empanadas!!
Another market definitely worth exploring, and certainly the most popular in Melbourne, is the Queen Victoria Market. On Wednesday nights, they host a night market filled with a plethora of vendors serving great food - churros, crepes, burritos, lentils, crocodile burgers, oh my!
The emu itself wasn't that great - okay, I totally went back on my previous rule - while not burger-fied, I think that hotdog-fied isn't the best. But I just wanted some good ol' street food and Banjo's BBQ was serving all of Australia's cuddly and otherwise animals in street food form!
Lentils yay, Pavlova nay!
This is a bittersweet post, as this is where I met Rachel. A wonderful spirit, and very well-travelled, Rachel was very welcoming and told us tales of mysterious jungle diseases and couchsurfing solo around South America. She also told me to go find "potato cakes" and try Lentils As Anything before I left - she knew what I was looking for; something local and different than my usual fare in Canada. I, along with many other members of the community, were hard hit to hear that she had gone missing. It's still a mystery...
