Do a lap of Chapel Street for everything from a vino date to a degustation of Asian fusion, Mexican or modern Australian flavours. Feast the day away along the famed south-side street that runs through Windsor, Prahran and South Yarra.

1. Yugen Restaurant

Head underground where the drinks flow and the tunes beat well past dusk. Yugen in South Yarra is an experience like no other, with a menu brought to life by head chef Alex Yu and filled with high-end Japanese. You can also expect an ode to other parts of Asia with Malaysian and Chinese flavours adding extra zest to an already impeccable menu. 

2. Chacho's Windsor

Did someone say tacos and margs? The chill vibe at Chacho's goes hand in hand with its specialty dishes of Mexican-inspired pizzas, tacos and cocktails, making it the perfect spot for a relaxed lunch, or a cocktail night with the girls. 

3. Mr Miyagi

For a tongue-in-cheek take on Japanese culture, Mr Miyagi in Windsor is the place to be. Picture flamboyant cocktails and dishes inspired by the far reaches of the Asian continent. Throw in some in-your-face flavour and visual allure, and you've got the recipe for a pretty great night on Chapel. 


Welcome to LOVER, an eating house and bar in Windsor that's built around the love of good food. Visit the venue's little corner of love for a neighbourhood atmosphere, playful cuisine and contemporary cocktails. Pop in for a mid-week feed and be seduced by Gnocchi Wednesdays, where the pasta is plentiful and the drink pours generous. 

5. Little Tim Tam 

Asian-fusion delicacies are calling from Prahran. Dine on cult favourites like pad thai or green curry and sip a blend of sake, nigori, yuzu and yuzu bitters with the nigori old fashioned at Little Tim Tam. 

6. Ines Wine Bar

Combine the sultry allure of Europe with a splash of Windsor cool and you get Ines Wine Bar. Swoon over sumptuous food and the cracking list of French, Italian and local wine by Coravin and soak up the moody atmosphere generated by ambient lighting and walnut furnishings.

7. The Woods 

Pay homage to the best of the 1900s and take your pick of more than 100 whiskies to sip from fine crystalware at The Woods. Step into a speakeasy from a bygone era and listen to classic gramophone tunes, check out the taxidermy on display, and nibble tasty morsels from the menu. 

8. Jungle Boy

Dare to travel beyond the sandwich counter at Boston Sub and you'll be greeted by a secret entrance to Jungle Boy, Windsor's premier cocktail bar. Soak up the tropical atmosphere and wind down on a Saturday night in the jungle as you snack on poutine and sip cocktails from tiki cups. 

9. Tokyo Tina

Hannoi Hannah has expanded south-side, with its younger sibling, Tokyo Tina. Head to Windsor for contemporary Japanese food with Korean flavours, straight from the pages of The Good Food Guide 2022. Delight your tastebuds with tonkatsu croquettes and pork and kimchi gyoza with a side of Japanese beer, whisky or sake. 

10. Yellow Bird Cafe 

Eat breakfast for dinner and pair your eggs with a cheeky pint, or take a more traditional route and gorge yourself with oversized burgers, tacos, all the fries you could dream of and endless cocktails at this Windsor institution. Open morning 'til late, you can get your food fix anytime of the day at Yellow Bird Cafe.
