Pantre Melbourne | Melbourne City List

From the same team behind Zero Mode that brought us these amazingly aesthetic cream cakesPantre is Melbourne Central’s new ground floor Asian grocer and takeaway store.

The underground destination is an Asian deli heaven, floor-to-ceiling shelves are lined with a colorful mix of sauces, spices, noodles and more. It’s also a haven for the harder-to-find items with a range of specialty products like premium black sesame ice cream, mochi and bubble tea.

Their freshly baked toast plays an important role in Pantre’s offering. Fusing Japanese flavors with classic sanga combinations, the Wagyu beef brisket toastie that’s brimming with melted cheddar and mozzarella cheese over Kimchi coleslaw and pickles is an absolute eye-opener.

There’s also a dedicated fridge for ready meals to take home, contrary to the stereotype, these ultra-luxury options include a range of bento boxes and sushi bowls with premium wagyu and fish, including a Ora King salmon and a twice cooked eel. Number.

On the sweets front, you’ll find a range of Zero Mode desserts from their Japanese-style cheesecakes as well as puffs that have already established themselves as some of the best in town. Find out all about Pantre here.
