Camberwell, a beautiful leafy suburb known for its Italian eateries, is also home to Magic City Cafe & Wine Bar, which mixes things up with a menu of Modern Australian cuisine infused with fresh Asian flavours. The dining room itself is housed in a beautifully-restored art-deco building and the service offered is similarly sophisticated. Order a fine wine to match your meal and enjoy the ambience.

Housed in a former amusement parlour, hence its intriguing name, the only remnant of Magic City Cafe and Wine Bar’s former self is the large neon sign. Open since 2003, Magic City’s split-level interior is one of cool sophistication with exposed brick walls, timber table tops, natural fibre lamp shades and dark timber panelling. Only a short walk from Camberwell Station, Magic City’s menu is designed for flexibility allowing for a quick breakfast or a leisurely dinner and everything in between.

Chef Martin Dekarte has taken over in the kitchen from former head chef James Tan, however the cuisine still remains an East-West fusion with a contemporary edge. Start with a selection of starters that might include curried vegetable empanada with nashi pear and Vietnamese chutney, or pan-seared scallops with fried pigs ear salad and a black Chinese vinegar reduction. Follow with a course from the bigger dish selection which might include citrus and lemon grass scented ocean trout with grilled scampi and Yarra Valley salmon caviar, or the duck two ways comprising lacquered soy duck breast and Peking duck cabbage parcel with tear drop noodles and shitake mushrooms. Finish with the cardamom and star anise creme brulee. The good sized wine list is well suited to the style of cuisine with specials also offered.
