The team behind Melbourne Greek institution Stalactites opens its second Hella Good store just in time for Christmas shopping.
Christmas shoppers descending into the city this Friday should come hungry as Greek quick-service restaurant Hella Good will be slinging out one hell of a good offer for the opening of its new store in Emporium Melbourne, giving away 100 free souvlakis to lucky customers from 10am.
From the team behind Melbourne’s longest-running and best-known Greek institution Stalactites, Hella Good offers an abbreviated version of the Stalactites famous menu and cooks all of its lamb and chicken on-site using the freshest ingredients. The new Emporium store will offer five traditional sized souvlakis on the menu: the Kotter (chicken), Arnie (lamb),) Harvey (lamb & chicken), Terry (vegetarian) and Vegan along with various snack packs, homemade dips and sweets.
The new store will be the second outpost of Hella Good, with the first opening in Elizabeth Street in 2017, and with a third on its way in Fitzroy in early 2021. The Emporium and Fitzroy sites were formerly Jimmy Grants, part of the MAdE Establishment Group that went into administration earlier this year.
“We are delighted to be finally opening our flagship Hella Good store after such a difficult year for the hospitality industry. We believe that the Melbourne city will once again thrive in the coming months and we are excited to be part of the resurgence of hospitality in the CBD,” says Managing Director Nicole Papasavas.
The Hella Good store concept designed by Bergman & Co, has always been about creating a clean and contemporary space that reflects the freshness of the food, and the Emporium store stays true to these origins. Over 1,200 timber dowels cascading from the roof pays homage to the famous Stalactites in its sister Lonsdale Street restaurant.
To celebrate the opening of the Emporium store, the Hella Good Elizabeth St store will also be offering all customers free chips with every purchase made on opening Friday.
With delicious marinated meat sliced straight from the spit, accompanied with homemade dips, fresh veggies and chips, this will be one Hella Good addition to Emporium Melbourne.
Free souvlakis for the first 100 customers at Hella Good Emporium on Friday, 18 December from 10am until sold out.
