      I reckon next venue can be the Enlightened Cuisine in Southbank.
      It's vegetarian, mock-meat. Would be a very interesting dining experience for a bunch of meat heads.

      You've gotta admit, soy curd in the shape of a fish is a bit weird.
      Flaps, Stalagtites has its place in the world: when you've had a night out on the town and you don't really care what you're eating. But in truth, it's no better than most souvlaki vans.
      And the service is something to be experienced. If you get a grunt from the waitress and a nod of her head in the direction of your table, you're doing better than most.
      I'm going to Taxi Saturday night. My favourite.

      Monkey, agree with Mike that Vue De Monde is the go for special occasions. Been there about 10 times now, and 9 out of 10 times I would say I walked out of there completely satisfied which is more than any other restaurants I can think of. The one time they stuffed up something which I can't remember now. But the novelty has worn off now so I haven't been back for 6 months. It's also not something you want to do too often as the food is very rich. For high end food that you can eat every week, I would suggest Nobu. My fav place to go when time allows.

      Went here a few weeks ago. Most amazing restaurant that only seats a dozen or so people. Need to book a month or two in advance if you want to go on a Friday or Saturday night:
      Tempura Hajime; • Ground floor, 60 Park St, South Melbourne 3205: (03) 9696 0051

      Behind a nondescript brown door, on a small street between St Kilda Road and Kings Way, lies Tempura Hajime. Like many of its counterparts Tempura Hajime is housed in rather petite surrounds. This is not the place to go if you are booking a raucous hens' or stag night, but if the thought of a well-crafted set menu served in intimate surrounds sparks your interest, then it's worth adding it to your 'must experience' list.
      Once inside, a short hall opens out into a reception area in which pre-dinner drinks are served. Beyond this space is a stylised dining room. A central counter comfortably seats 14 and allows diners an unobstructed view of chef Daisuke Miyamoto (of famed Flinders Lane yakitori bar Yu-U) at work.
      The selection on offer is not extensive but it will impress lovers of fine Japanese food. Diners will more than likely have a little Atlantic salmon sashimi pass between their lips, possibly even some shaved daikon with dipping broth, lemon and salt. Each meal is prepared by Miyamoto according to the speed at which you consume. The prices would possibly make your grandmother swoon but are not at all outrageous if you are in the mood to treat yourself a little.

      I've been to that Vegetarian place Mike mentioned a couple of times. It's ok, not as good as Vegetarian Hut in Box Hill. (not sure if it's still there).
      Talking about dishes in shape of a fish, have you guys tried ordering fish and chips at bistro guillaume? It's really awesome. I will try find a pic I took...

      Not sure I like the idea of dining with you. Every place you've recommended has been crap.
      Maybe you're just a bad jinx.

      C'mon I ate your soup last week without complaining. 8 o'clock?
      Wayne, I reckon you'll like that Japanese place. The food is a bit oily for me as everything is fried, but the whole experience of going there is pretty memorable.

      That's because nobody's yet been to McDonalds in Mt Gambier.

      I've never been to Hajime, but Yu-U is fantastic [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]
      Also, there is (was?) a mock meat place in Dickson in Canberra which is really tasty.
      Went here for dinner the other night: http://www.mandarinoriental.co...cular/ The chef was trained at El Bulli. It was a great experience and the food was delicious, but more of a novelty than anything else.

      Does anyone know how long the booking is for El Bulli? I have to try that one day given they have consistently top the charts...

      anyone?
      maybe down in Adelaide or perth, somewhere they still have not phased them all out yet.

      Country Victoria, esp. NW. We've had good genuine wog burgers in Echuca (Hare Street) and also Swan Hill in the main drag. There's a good fish n' chippery at the north end of town (Swan Hill) that does good burgers too. (not wog burgers tho)
