The Inner West is not known for hosting a collection of polished and refined institutions nor are we known for providing an experience of elegance and wizardry levels of practical gastronomy. Whilst there are solid forerunners such as West of Kin, it takes more than one restaurant to create a movement that is not only lasting but makes impact. Imbue does just that – Chef Nguyen’s creations are there to delight and dish elements are cooked so well, I just kept thinking why are there not more places like this in the Westside?!

Imbue Food & Wine opens in Maribyrnong. Being a local, it’s fair to say good dining options are sparse. Footscray is the destination for Vietnamese and a big bowl of steaming pho. Yarraville and Seddon, is for weekend brunches. Flemington is for laksa. Maribyrnong? Well.. there’s Highpoint. The opening of Imbue, ushers much-needed gastronomic love, to the ho-hum franchises that dominate this riverside burb. I love living in Maribyrnong, the views of the river, the proximity to good Vietnamese. The one thing that’s missing, is an up-and-coming food scene. Let’s hope our mates at Imbue, can get the westside train rolling.

Westsiders will claim that the west side is indeed the best side. Yeps, guilty as charged. But there's now another reason that makes that statement truer than before, and that's down to the opening of Imbue Food & Wine in Maribyrnong.

If you have have asked me a couple of weeks ago whether I had ever visited Maribyrnong, my answer would have been what, where? I had heard of the suburb, but never found reason to visit that part of town until Imbue Food and Wine opened up. Westsiders, you have a new local for modern dining! Unique to its area, it is fitting that the co-owners hail from Maribyrnong and wanted to bring some modern flair and precision to a somewhat lacking dining scene over that side of town. Simply admire the mural on the wall that tells of their journey and you will see how much they love their town and the passion they bring to the area.

Thanks to Imbue, Maribyrnong’s dining scene has been taken to new and unexpected heights. The menu is designed to surprise and delight over perfectly executed dishes that retain your interest from start to finish. 

There was an incredible precision to Head Chef Phong Nguyen's cooking that spoke volumes about his calibre. 

The ambience of Imbue is comfortable and relaxed, providing the perfect canvas for the culinary art. The dining room is marshalled by excellent service staff, led admirably by Rod, who ensures your experience is a memorable one.
