Just when you’d thought of every toastie filling combination, Goldie introduced us to Peking duck with noodles!

Before its opening, Goldie Asian Canteen + Brews was hotly-anticipated. This was mostly due to the fact that Michael Smith, one of Melbourne’s esteemed chefs, was heading up the kitchen. His quirky take on Asian fusion has been a golden hit. EatClub is very excited to have Goldie on the platform!

Self-described, Goldie is ‘cheeky, flirty, fun and flavoursome’. It sits under the Novotel Melbourne Central, but feels worlds away from your typical hotel lobby restaurant. It’s approachable and filled with light.Goldie Asian Canteen + BrewsGoldie Asian Canteen + BrewsChef Smith wanted to create a menu fed with inspiration from his time in Bangkok mixed with his Melbourne upbringing. The entire menu, complete with crepes, dumplings, alcoholic bubble tea and fusion toasties, is available from 7:30am every day and is full of fun things.

At breakfast time, we recommend their Brekkie Bao with Peking duck, scrambled egg and Hoi sin. If you’re stopping in for a coffee, you’ll be delighted by their brews made with beans from St. Ali Coffee Roasters. While there are plenty of non-alcoholic bubbles teas, order their Coffee Cup (made with cold brew, Kahlua, vodka and tonic-flavoured tapioca pearls) to boost your brekkie to ‘boozy brunch’ status.Goldie Asian Canteen + BrewsThe Rice Bowl come with a 63° egg, seaweed salad, pickled carrot & daikon, sesame salad and your choice of things like katsu chicken, ocean trout and panko-fried eggplant. If you can look away from the Peking Duck Toastie, the Char Sio Pork Toastie is an absolute knockout, enhanced with cheese and kimchi. It’s got a real kick.
