Feast of Merit

IMG_4518

Feast of Merit has long been on my hit-list – we had dinner here one night last year but I was still very keen on their lunch options. Once my birthday rolled around, I managed to convince Meut to head to East Richmond and grab a bite.

The food is really great, with a menu emulating Ottolenghi and with an emphasis on local produce and colourful grains. My trio of salads were vibrant in texture and flavour, whereas Meutz’s crumpets were packed with Middle Eastern flavours (albeit the orange still had pips in it). I’d imagine it would be a great pick for lunch or dinner with friends. IMG_4499IMG_4514

Most interesting is the fact that the restaurant is a social enterprise, where all profits head straight to ygap (Y-Generation Against Poverty). I was able to attend a recent Talk and Taste event held by the Immigration Museum, where Feast Of Merit chef Ravi Presser chatted about the importance of food and culture to him, and how there was no better way to illustrate ygap’s sense of community than through food.

Feast Of Merit is more than just a physical prescence for ygap – it’s like a door open for Melbourne into the ygap community where you are sure of a good feast while knowing you’re helping to do some good in the world. How merry.
