National Fries Day Buffet – 13 July – Lunch and Dinner


In a case of if you can’t beat them, join them, Melba Restaurant has joined the global food movement of celebrating specific foods on certain days.

“We noticed that there was almost a world or national day for so many of our favourite foods that we decided to join in and have a two month line-up of food specific days during the winter months of June and July. Who wouldn’t love a day to satisfy their craving for tapas, sushi, fried chicken, chocolate, fries or lamingtons,” observed The Langham, Melbourne’s executive chef, Deepak Mishra. “These special events are the perfect excuse to indulge in your much-loved dishes,” adds Mishra.

Diners can ignore any Friday the 13th superstitions and enjoy a well-deserved Fry-Yay instead. From traditional poutine with cheese curds and gravy to hand-cut, thinly sliced batons of fried potato, everyone’s collective craving for fries will be taken care of on National Fries Day, complete with a choice of chipotle sea salt fries, Amarillo mayonnaise and beer-battered fries served with black garlic aioli.
