blue corn - st kilda

Photobucket

It's not often I go southside so when I do have a decent list of places to try which helps with the "oh god I'm so far from home" anxiety! I wanted to go to Blue Corn the last time I was in St Kilda (to see Grace Jones ONE OF THE BEST CONCERTS I'VE EVER BEEN TO!) but we went to Laus Family Kitchen instead which I found average so didn’t blog about it. Blue Corn is awesome, really super vegan and gluten free friendly. The dining room can be a little cold and the furniture is kind of uncomfortable but they certainly make up for everything with the food!

So.much.food. Seriously order a plate between two people. Pictured is the dips platter with home made blue corn bread. Some of the dips didn’t float my boat, the corn bread was spectacular though. They also serve fresh chipotle with their meals which is a huge deal for me! On the decent Mexican in Melbourne stakes it sits comfortably between Mamasitas and Trippy Taco. If you're south of the border, hit Blue Corn! (thanks to Cindy and Michael for the recommendation).

Deets: 205 Barkly Street, St Kilda web: Google place page
$$: my platter was $18 or $20 but could easily feed two people.

  1. Really glad you enjoyed it! We haven't been there for aaaaages. I was a bit unsure how it would perform (a) for vegans and (b) in the context of all the Trippy Taco/Mamasita/other Mexican we've tried in the intervening years.

  2. Wow, this is really great to know!!! Some friends told me that Blue Corn was awesome years ago but that was well before I was vego or vegan. This is definitely going on my list of eating out places to try. I adore Mexican food but the thought of queuing up at Mamasita doesn't really appeal to me.
