There are two types of Melburnians: those who understand the culinary power of Ascot Vale, and those who are about to.

Our Ascot Vale Wander kicks off at neighbourhood favourite The Vale Bar and Eatery for a vertical tasting of four Victorian wines matched with house-made chorizo and grilled zucchini with hazelnut romesco.

From there, we wander forth to Sinq Foods, a much loved Ethiopian restaurant, for a big spread of East African intrigue served on injera and accompanied by their house-made alcohol-free ginger beer.

Last but not least, it's off to The Union Wine Store for antipasto and cheese, and a couple of more obscure wines plucked from their vast collection.

A brilliant way to acquaint or refamiliarise yourself with the good eating and drinking found right throughout one of the inner north's more unsung postcodes.
