There are several place inside St. Kilda Towes for you to get food.  There is Asian, Thai, Sushi, Soup, Smoothies, as well as a convenience Store.  So you can pretty much have your pick.  Next door is a restaurant called Squires Loft which judging by the smell provides amazing food for those meat lovers out there
