Welcome to FoodCult!

Please browse about sticking your nose into the lists and then offer up your own gutful of culinaria.


Every man will have to give an account of himself for every good thing which he would have liked to eat, but did not. ~Hillel


It is not really an exaggeration to say that peace and happiness begin, geographically, where garlic is used in cooking. ~Marcel Boulestin


The gentle art of gastronomy is a friendly one. It hurdles the language barrier, makes friends among civilized people, and warms the heart. ~Samuel Chamberlain


The destiny of nations depends on the way they feed themselves. ~Brillat Savarin


Culinary history is a collection of questionable happenings recorded by persons of dubious credibility. ~George Lang



The Concept of FoodCult Wiki

Foodcult is a collaborative experiment to determine where to eat, shop & cook in Melbourne, why we have particular preferences, and how our interactions with food shape our identities (national, cultural, gendered, etc). Lists and criteria will be wide and varied (and editable as well as edible!) but I'm going to start with:



Generally the best


Nationally-specific restaurant reviews


Other Food Favourites


Favourite Recipes


Places To Try (untested)


What Were They Thinking?!!

Don't Go There


Like everything else here, you may want to change some things on the list or add others. I hereby relinquish control and let democracy rule! Vive la gastronomie!

I just read tammois' review on Akita, and I was actually thinking the same thing abut the nomenclature of pages in this wiki.

For example, I had brunch at Birdman Eating on the weekend, and while I wouldn't necessarily feel comfortable placing a review under the 'Best Breakfast' page, I did feel the urge to give it a mention under 'Best Goat's Cheese on Toast', and OK for breakfast. Similarly, I finally got around to trying YourThai on Swanston st, and while it wouldn't make it under the 'Best Thai' page by any means - partly disqualified by distinctly Singaporean ownership and staff - I would highly recommend the Chiang Mai Beef Noodles...

Should we just ignore the word 'Best' and add lukewarm reviews..?

I think I may just need to do a big manual cut and paste so that pages are simply "Thai", etc. But that may have to wait until I'm back from overseas...
