While in Melbourne a restaurant you must visit is Dandelion, newly opened by Geoff Lindsay, formally of Pearl. Vietnamese-inspired Dandelion boasts a clean, crisp space with a family-friendly bistro feel. Stand-out dishes were the sizzling coconut pancakes with crab, the BBQ pork and bean sprouts, and the rather grand turmeric glazed suckling pig with Balinese spiced stuffing, served with pork and peanut sausage, young jack fruit and steamed rice. The suckling pig is priced ‘on application’, so do your best to look sexy and that’ll get you the good prices.
