F.T Tuckshop is a retail outlet of Food Traders Catering Company that offers South Melbourne something not many other places do: quality lunch food at affordable prices.

Find it hidden out of the way on Charles Street and you’ll be met with a simple menu of old-school jaffles, subs, rolls, soups and daily specials and, most likely, a crowd. Seating is limited to a few sunny tables outdoors, but there are plenty of street benches nearby to compensate. Food can take upwards of ten minutes to emerge from the depths of the kitchen – savvy eaters call ahead.

Jaffles go for $4 a piece, which is good because you’ll want two. The best combos include chicken, pesto, mayo and cheese – a pseudo chicken salad bursting through the seams of golden, buttery bread – and the Elloha with sliced ham, cheese and sweet pineapple.

The meatball sub is the lunch spot’s most famed offering – and for good reason. Tender and moist meatballs nestled in soft Italian bread with tomato sauce, melted mozzarella, fresh basil and plenty of mayo. It’s hard to exercise restraint once you’ve had it. All sandwiches and wraps cost $8 and offer conscious eaters a choice of whole meal or white bread.

There’s certainly something new to try daily and almost never the obligation to spend over $10 to feel fulfilled. That’s something not many other places in South Melbourne can offer.
