    Indulge in delicious meat and seafood at Mediterranean restaurants in Melbourne

    Mediterranean cuisine is known for its excellent meat dishes, and luckily for carnivores visiting the city, the Mediterranean restaurants here in Melbourne definitely are too. Dishes at Zurouna on Toorak Road like the shish tawouk (chicken breast marinated in lemon and garlic) or the mixed grill with chicken, koftas and lahem meshwi (lamb meat on skewers) are second to none. And the impact of the coastlines and seasides of the Mediterranean means there are plenty of fish dishes to enjoy too. The city's location on the Swan River means that locally sourced fish is available to the chefs at Mediterranean restaurants in Melbourne, and Zurouna's fish of the day served with tahini and ras al hanout spices is guaranteed to be fresh and zingy.

    Sample vegetarian dishes at Melbourne's Mediterranean restaurants

    While dishes like fish may be top of the menu in the seaside-influenced cuisines of the Mediterranean, there are plenty of meat free meals to enjoy at Melbourne's Mediterranean restaurants too. Down at Mediterranean Charcoal Restaurant on Bridport Street in Albert Park, those who don't eat meat (or those who simply fancy something different) can try the vegetarian stuffed pepper with chickpeas, mushrooms and rice served alongside mashed potato. And for a taste of Italy, veggies can sample the pumpkin, spinach and three cheese pizza with dukkah on offer at Mr Lawrence on Beach Street. Whatever you prefer, there's plenty of choice.

    Try top desserts at Melbourne's Mediterranean restaurants

    Dessert is a big part of the culinary culture of this region, so those who fancy a sweet treat after a meal at Melbourne's Mediterranean restaurants are in luck. Dairy plays a strong role in many Mediterranean desserts: mhalabia, a milk pudding made with saffron infused syrup, is not to be missed, while desserts like the iconic, nutty baklava filo pastry are ideal for those who enjoy heavier sweets. At Mr Lawrence, a real fruity treat pudding can be found in the rosewater and pistachio meringue served with rhubarb, orange curd and pashmak (fluffy Middle Eastern candy floss).
