Our neighborhood ?

We’ve been to South Yarra for about two months now and and by now we managed to get a pretty good picture of the area ?.

It’s a small, nice and lovely corner right between the suburbs and the CBD. We can say we have the best of both worlds: It’s quite calm and relaxed, but everything we need is in walking distance and most of it is open 24/7 ?.

We’ve already got quite a long list of favorite shops and restaurants. For example Chapelli’s – the probably best Italian restaurant you can find on this continent, or Soda Rock Diner – an American diner like you know it from old movies… We probably visit both of them way too often ??.

When we got here, we were the ones asking for recommendations and by now we’re helping others and became insiders around Chapel Street ?.

We’re far from calling ourselves locals, but we’re really enjoying helping other tourists out and giving them some useful tips ?.
