Melbourne: Naked for Satan
Get There: 285 Brunswick Street, Fitzroy
Cost: $1 per pintxo Sunday night – Thursday lunch, $2 per pintxo
If you’re too stingy to pay for a full meal, or just need some drunken snacks en route to a boozy night out, you can do no wrong nibbling on the bite-sized Basque-style pintxos Naked for Satan has on offer. Load your plate up with the bread-heavy delights and eat your fill while sipping on an overpriced drink (to be fair, they make and infuse their own vodka, and it’s amazing). Once finished, simply tally up the toothpicks and take them to the counter where the barman will work out the total. You can satiate your hunger pretty quickly for under $10, and the pintxos are ridiculously gourmet: think quail yolk with taro crisps, cauliflower with manouri cheese and garlic prawns, and rice ball with artichoke and white anchovy. If you get a chance, eat on the rooftop balcony – the view is divine.
