This industrial-style eatery in Ashgrove, decked out with exposed bricks and neon lightbulbs, is serving up vibrant and beautifully plated dishes for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

During the day, you'll find tweaked American-style classics — such as honeycomb, ricotta and lavender hotcakes ($19) and a New York-style reuben ($19) with house-made pastrami and spicy mayo — and at night, the menu roams the globe. Crispy chicken drummets ($14) arrive with sweet, sticky sauce, pork belly is served inside steamed buns ($15), tacos ($14) are topped with fish and sriracha, and for dessert there's an old-school eton mess ($13).

Macho Macho also runs a seasonal 'supper club' — a three-course feast for $50 — and offers V60 filter for us enthusiastic coffee nerds. Swing by for 'Small Plate Sunday' and enjoy some discounted tapas-style titbits (three plates for the price of two), Happy Hour from 4-6pm on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Sundays, or catch live music on Thursday evenings from 5pm.
