Krakatoa, South Yarra
One of the lunch cafes I was always keen to hit but always missed was Krakatoa, which does Asian-styled breakfasts with funky Malaysian and Indonesian twists. It’s closed on a Tuesday as well as after 3pm but it’s a nice change of pace that’s well worth making time for when you’re in South Yarra.
I went for the satay chicken on rice and this also came with a good selection of vegetables underneath a satisfyingly nutty peanut based sauce. The chicken was well done and all came together for a nice hot filling bite for ten bucks. Service was super friendly and although the coffee wasn’t the greatest, it is one of the cheapest here on the Toorak Road strip. I’d say give Krakatoa a crack.
