North Hobart’s Foodstop is one of a handful of 24-hour greaser conveniences that have been fulfilling the locals’ munchies and other late-night needs for decades.

Cabbies will happily wait out front while you order your large chips (there ain’t no fries here), dimmies, potato cakes, corn jacks and of course Chiko Rolls.

Their house lighters are to be found in many Tasmanian homes.
