BOOK A TABLE

Frankie may not have the label of destination diner like its fellow Geelong spot Igni does, but this (cheaper) eatery is well worth the drive to the coast. Why? Well, the interior is divine — all polished leather, beige leather couches and soft rose-gold accents. It's the kind of interior we all want but are too clumsy and messy to manage. But let's not be superficial. Frankie serves up both atmosphere and a killer drinks menu featuring wines from local and state wineries and decadently garnished cocktails (try the mango bramble for $18 — trust us).

Once you've quenched your thirst, the pan-Asian dinner menu has the rest of your night covered. The kitchen dabble in a little Japanese cuisine with okonomiyaki pancakes with pickled veggie salad ($14), a little Indonesian with their nasi goreng ($22) and some Korean by way of crispy pork belly with hot pepper glaze ($27). Plus, there's everyone's favourite finger food: bao buns. Try the sticky pork belly with pickled pineapple, coconut slaw and crushed peanuts ($20) for a flavour combo you won't forget in a hurry.
