More about Melbourne's Oakleigh restaurants
You can't check out Melbourne's Oakleigh restaurants without at least thinking Greek. It's a tempting option, thanks to places like Meat Me on Chester Street, a souvlaki bar where you can graze on pickled octopus, calamari skewers and spicy loukaniko sausage. Or for something a little more fiery, there are curry houses such as Spicy Sood's on the North Road – try the flavoursome stuffed drumsticks. Meanwhile, for some great locally sourced seafood, head to Richmond Oysters on Church Street with its mouth-watering platters of Tasmanian oysters, Moreton bay bugs and Portland lobster.
