I had a busy evening recently when I found myself coming out of a long meeting about 15 minutes before a comedy show I wanted to attend. And I was hungry. I first discovered Bala’s in St Kilda when I first arrived in Melbourne, then I moved to Fitzroy. The food at both venues is consistently good and $12.50 gets you the Thali special below with beef vindaloo and butter chicken. Flagrant food fawning has reviewed the vegetarian version. For a tasty quick casual meal Bala’s is a great choice.

    Agreed on the cheap good meal in short amount of time- we need more of those places! Unfortunately haven’t been down this way in a while but that photo had the intended effect. Yum!
