Winter noms students rate in Melbourne

FEELING peckish? From savoury to sweet treats, foodies Sabina Chio and Athirah Ahmad find out what students at Trinity College Foundation Studies are reaching for to keep their appetites satiated this winter. 

Nothing is more satisfying than reaching for a warm snack as the mercury drops, but where do students flock to satisfy their winter cravings? Here’s what we uncovered from our survey.

This sweet little stall is located on the corner of Little Collins and Swanston streets. It is an authentic French take-away creperie, and they have a variety of delicious toppings such as Nutella with almonds, maple syrup and the famous salted caramel crêpe!

Prices range from $5 to $9.50, which is pretty affordable, and to quote Trinity College Foundation Studies student Jin Feng, 18, these crepes are simply “the best”.

The Spanish Donut is located at 2/295 Flinders St, at Flinders St Station. It is available 24/7 so you can gratify your sweet desires any time of the day. They offer a wide range of churros and their most popular one is the Hazelnut Nutella Churro. Prices range from $5 to $10.

These churros are a favourite of 18-year-old Trinity student Tanaya Satrio, “because when you take a bite, the crunchiness along with the hot chocolate dip tastes amazing.”

You can find the famous American Doughnut Kitchen food truck at Queen Victoria Market. It serves delectable and warm jam-filled doughnuts, and you can often see hungry hordes queuing up for these especially on the weekend.

Natalie Phay, 17, from Trinity loves them because they come out “fresh and hot, and when you bit into it, the jam oozes and it tastes super yummy!

Take advantage of the five doughnuts for $5.50 promotion, and share the love with your friends.

Chooh La La is a moving truck that sells hot roasted nuts using a 300-year-old French recipe. You can often find them at The Queen Victoria Market. It’s a healthy winter snack, and for 18-year-old Trinity student Jett Saw, 18, it’s the “only place in Melbourne that serves delicious nuts!”

About

Meld Magazine was incorporated as an independent not-for-profit media outlet in September 2008 to reach out to international students in Melbourne, and provide students the opportunity to gain real work experience.

Many international students live in or around the city because of the proximity to their colleges and universities, and that was where we decided to focus our efforts first. Many of us live, work and study locally too. Our editorial team is made of both local and international students, and it has worked to our advantage in providing local content in every sense of the word.
