An art gallery/restaurant hybrid, showing the works of local painters and photographers, the cheekily-named Eat Me turned 20 in 2018. It still has its rough-hewn chic looks, all exposed industrial beams, dark wood, and indirect lighting on the walls of the ever-changing exhibition space. As importantly, the menu remains strong, featuring such delicious fusion dishes as Tasmanian salmon tartare and spicy lemongrass chicken. Other lures include the late closing time (good news for night owls), the respectable wine list, and the fantastic desserts, such as sticky date pudding and lemongrass crème brûlée, brilliant culinary inspirations from the Aussie-Thai owners. Tip: The main air-conditioned room is a better bet than the mosquito-infested balcony overlooking the small courtyard.
