    You two are a total joy to watch! Absolutely loved your entry and have all my fingers and toes crossed that you win.

    I’m a fellow Victorian who lives a few hours from Melbourne and I love SO many of the amazing places you chowed down at – one I haven’t been to yet is the amazing Smith and Deli/Smith and Daughters and I am dying to go (regularly stalking their Insta)! Then I can celebrate in a gutter with an incredible sandwich too, oh the day! 🙂

    Really incredible vibe with you two on camera, so happy and engaging – go Team Melbourne! x

    • Zacchary Bird 8 years ago

      Hayley, thank you so much! How have you never been to any of the Smith iterations yet? You know it’s good when everyone is A-OK sitting in a gutter to be able to enjoy their sandwich!

      Your words are so kind, and thanks for supporting us! I’m always at Smith & Deli so hopefully I can meet you there one day soon!

  2. Imogen 8 years ago

    Ok. So……. I LOVED IT..
    Am suuuuuuuuuuuuuper impressed by these two (also by Megan’s ability to eat without getting lipstick all over her face/teeth/entire person… how did she do that? Seriously, how?!). Although I may have a teensy weensy amount of Melbourne-related bias, the personality and effervescence displayed in this video is not something you see often. Good luck guys- I hope you get the opportunity to take your attitude out to the world!

    • Zacchary Bird 8 years ago

      Such a talent, isn’t it!? Too many kind words, hopefully we bump into you at one of our many Melbourne eateries! Thank you so much!

  4. Niko Sopelario 8 years ago

    Wow!! As you can see from these guys they’re absolutely hilarious. If your wanting immediate conversion from views to clicks, definitely these guys are it! As you can see from the exuberance and irreverent humour they are great to watch and in the bigger picture get the general public excited enough to embrace the vegan lifestyle!

    • Zacchary Bird 8 years ago

      Oh, thanks Niko! So glad you felt excited by our video, and even better that you got some laughs out of it! x

    • Zacchary Bird 8 years ago

      Coming from someone with such a video presence, wow! Thanks! We only found out about this literally a day ago – how could we ever pass up such a wildly amazing opportunity? You could call Melbourne the Portland of Australia, it seems!

  6. Sasha 8 years ago

    Send these guys on a Vegan World Tour. Zac’s the most passionate vegan food chef/entrepreneur/’experimenter’ I know in Melbourne, with an amazing Instagram (@zaccharybird) following (19.3k and counting – can’t say no to that!). He is well-spoken, with wonderful positive energy, and will no doubt create amazing global vegan travel content!

    • Zacchary Bird 8 years ago

      Sasha! You’re too good to me, what an amazing message for you to leave! Can’t wait to see you soon, perhaps we can even check out one of the places I went in the video? 😛

  7. Zacchary Bird 8 years ago
