They say that when it comes to all things in life, timing is everything.
But little did Trisha Vu know that the day before she was due to open her first hospitality venue, government restrictions would mean that her business would be shuttered for eight long months.
Fortunately, Trisha has now finally been able to open the doors to Corner 90, a two-storey beer garden and cafe in the heart of Footscray CBD.
Located on the site of a former hairdressing salon, Trisha has transformed the space with a handsome red gum slab bar in the front room, a sunny plant-filled courtyard out the back and an upstairs area with large windows overlooking bustling Hopkins Street and the facade of Footscray Market.
On the menu of Corner 90 you’ll find a rotating selection of seasonal beers and tasty bites to go with drinks. Trisha recommends trying the spicy buffalo wings and the wagyu lamb skewers.
In fact, Corner 90 is the only place in Melbourne you’ll be able to try wagyu lamb.
“Normally wagyu lamb is exported to China and the US,” explains Trisha. “But we happen to know the breeder in Victoria, so we source the ‘rib fingers’ to make the skewers. It’s easily our most popular menu item and we hope it will become our signature dish!”
With summer on its way, Corner 90 is the perfect location to meet friends and family. Kick back with a cold beverage, explore their menu and watch out for events that Trisha wants to host to bring the community together after so many months spent apart.
