Our obsession with being the first person to know about a new place to stuff our face is reaching critical, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing – food does keep us alive, technically.
So, where do you go when you’ve exhausted all of your favourite eateries? Or, perhaps more accurately, where do you go if you’ve been blacklisted from all of your favourite eateries?
Conveniently for you, we’ve found a few fresh joints across Australia to chow down at. Well, not all of Australia so apologies in advance, Canberra. Can’t win ’em all (or any).

Honestly, if I had a spare fortune hiding in my sock drawer (note to self: check sock drawer for spare fortune) I too would probably convert an early 1900’s post office into a bangin’ restaurant.
Aside from it looking absolutely bonkers, Angus & Bon serve up some 11/10 New York-style grub which throws another quirky spanner into the works. Old Melbourne architecture meets Murican cuisine? For it.

When the outdoors are indoors ???? Such a pretty lunch spot, make sure you book your table and let us take care of the rest! Thanks @petalsandflour for the beautiful Mothers Day arrangements. ????@dc_memories . . . #thebotanicavaucluse #lunch #eeeeeats #farmtotable #sydneyrestaurants #sydneyeats #sydneyfood #sydneystyle #interiordesign
Just by looking at The Botanica Vaucluse, I can accurately assume that every man and his hired dog which he obtained specifically for a photo at this restaurant will be flocking there soon.
The Sydney eatery is all about that farm-to-table life too, so you’ll know you’ll be copping some fresh food that’s locally sourced. That’s bound to be a big ol’ tick for all of you ~foodies~ out there.

Honto is immensely cool but this could be because you have to enter through a hidden door, and I’m the biggest sucker for a hidden door since that dude who lived in his neighbours’ ceiling and stole their food.
Regardless, you can go to town on as much Japanese cuisine as you can stomach, from wagyu beef and sashimi to a honeycomb dessert. Can’t go wrong, really.

Okay, so Garum gets a helping hand by having Guy Grossi (that distinct looking fellow from Masterchef) attached to the restaurant, but ol’ mate Guy doesn’t associate with just any random business venture that walks in off the street.
The head chefs at Garum use Ancient Roman techniques to serve up some modern-day dishes, which has me both intrigued and slightly on edge for some peculiar reason.

Feel like hosting your next function hassle free but worried that Nonna will complain that the food's not as good as home? This is a problem my family has been grappling with for years…but we think we have the solution ???? We are proud to offer private venue hire for functions. Enquire with us on 8225 6062 and have Est Ovest all to yourself???? #provenonnawrong #authenticitalian #adelaide #asliceofpizzaadaykeepsthedoctoraway
Est Ovest sounds just delightful.
The unique eatery has reintroduced Adelaide to authentic Italian food that was traditionally brought here by migrants. If you have a stalk of their Instagram too, they seem more passionate about their restaurant than anyone has ever been about anything. Good form.
If you’re keen to hit up every one of these, you’re probs gonna need to doll out a bit of cash on airfare. How do you get airfare? Money. How do you get money? (You know, besides working for it the traditional way). You win it. Try your hand at Instant Scratch-Its and hope for the best.
