My husband and I spent our free tour day shopping at Queen Victoria Market in Melbourne. Our tour guide recommended we visit The Borek Shop when we got hungry and order her favorites - a spicy lamb borek (handheld sandwich) and a zucchini fritter-like side. We did just that and loved both of them. The food was inexpensive, delicious, filling, and served up quickly - perfect for a shopping day at the market.

Had the $3.50 for Spicy Lamb & Vegetable Borek for lunch today. Still as good as ever! Efficient transaction as well.

Yup, I have borek for lunch everyday. I get them at the stall in the dairy hall on market days & their shop further down at Elizabeth street on non market days. Glad I no longer have to pack lunch with such cheap lunch option available!

Aside from the friendly staff the food here was fantastic. First time having a Borek and I'll be back for more.

Totally worth the pennies you are paying, it's not very difficult to locate this shop since you have to pass-by to go the meat market right inside the Victoria Market (If you choose to enter through the main gate, and not the side-gates). Our personal favorites have always been the potato, chicken and lamb.

Did not like the Spinach & Cheese at all. The only problem with this forever-bustling place is that the chicken, lamb and potato borek gets over too soon...so grab yours before 2.00pm

The lady over the counter is totally adorable. Even when we goofed-up over our order when it was already to crowded, she was so funny and sweet...and accommodating.
