Meat Smith

283 Smith St
Fitzroy  VIC  3065

 I'm torn about this entry.  The other day I was walking down Smith St, past the old Safeway, when I stumbled across this place and was literally stopped in my tracks.

It's meat.  It's murder.

And, let's face it, this shop is extremely Gen Y / Millenial in its styling and concept; i.e. from the same cats who brought you beards, fixy bicycles, "discovered" plastic skateboards, set up endless coffee shops (white tiles optional), have tattoos, primitive earrings and buy themselves five hundred dollar heritage axes because they're in touch with the past, man.  I mean, should I be plugging a business so obviously "hipster" it makes me want to be violently ill?  Even the name of the shop is kind of annoying.

Obviously the answer is yes.
