Koornang Road is a busy strip that is home to some of the most amazing, low key food spots in Melbourne. Some are old local institutions (like Paradai Thai, who were so busy they opened Paradai Thai 2 and Paradai Thai Massage), while others pop up overnight and soon become favourites. Petaling Street has locals returning for their quick, cheap and no fuss tasty food. There's no messing about - you won't wait long for your food. Before you step inside, watch the food preparation through the front window.
Must tries include the marmite chicken ribs and the whole fish (in a variety of flavours). If this isn't your thing, take a few steps either way for a huge variety of restaurants and cafes. With so many eateries in a small distance, it's very unusual to have too long to wait to get a seat.
