MELBOURNE | Punchbowl Canteen is located in the industrial part of Port Melbourne – across the road from the Toyota offices and just around the corner from where the scenery turns suburban. What it offers for those who live and work nearby, or are willing to seek it out, is an array of tasty breakfast and lunch options. The former Salford Lads Club and Red Tulip Easter Egg Factory has been transformed into a light and airy space with high ceilings, white walls, and lots of large windows which fill the space with natural light. The 10 foot pastel mural that adorns the back wall was painted by Australian artists and designer Leigh Bartholomew and further serves to cement Punchbowl’s cheery aesthetic.

Head Chef Elizabeth Milroy hails from rural Victoria and has worked in kitchens across Europe and in Melbourne (St Ali, Fitzrovia, Wide Open Road). Her philosophy when it comes to the food at Punchbowl Canteen is to “keep it simple but do it well” and indeed the menu, which features locally sourced ingredients where possible, adheres to this. Along with the open kitchen at the back of the venue, the custom built wood fire which you see to your left as you walk inside is used a few times a week to cook an array of meats which feature in some of the dishes.

The Fish Cake Scotch Egg with radish, pear chard, shaved beetroot salad and Curry Mayo has become a crowd favourite, but when we visited we couldn’t go past the Korean Fried Chicken Burger with kimchi slaw and shoestring fries, and the pumpkin doughnuts with cinnamon sugar, whipped yoghurt, and freeze dried mandarin. The burger is highly recommended, with moist chicken, a crispy coating and a sweet and spicy sauce in a nice soft bun. The doughnuts are fantastic too – light and fluffy with the whipped yoghurt providing a tangy counterbalance to the sweet and fried components. Make sure you get a bit of everything in each bite.

Coffee beans are sourced from Fitzroy’s Industry Beans and any type of coffee you could want is available from espresso to pour over to cold drip. In line with current trends, you can also get golden lattes and matcha lattes. A decent range of enticing juices and smoothies are also available, along with a few wines and craft beers. Try the “One-Five-O” smoothie with coconut flakes, coconut milk, coconut water, banana, vanilla.

Punchbowl Canteen isn’t in the most convenient location for those who aren’t already in the area, but if you make the effort to visit you won’t be disappointed.
