Looking for the latest release of Muay Thai Mayhem? Sorry, you'll now have to go elsewhere for your Thai video needs. Siam Thai Video, squirrelled into the side of Footscray Market, has become Guerilla Espresso - aka your new best friend.
Jag, formerly of West 48, has teamed up with mate Evan to open this sorely-needed spot right in the heart of the 'scray.
In terms of sustenance, there are simple, yummy toasted sarnies with your choice of cheese (think pecorino or gruyere) and meat (prosciutto, sopressa) - trust me and spring for the house-pickled onions. Or go a couple of Dr Marty's Crumpets (handmade crumpets with organic flour) or cakes by Nana Kath of The Premises.
Need a vitamin boost? Try the homemade soup or a cold-pressed juice. Produce and deli goods come from the market neighbours right next door.
I've been going to Footscray Market for years and this is JUST what the doctor ordered. And never fear - your Thai video habit can still be fulfilled at Nathan Thai Video around the corner. Just grab a coffee from Guerilla on the way!
