We’re now regulars at the Bavarian Bier Cafe, I think 😛 And Mum and Dad love it too! You can’t beat a giant (and I do mean GIANT) pork schnitzel and fries, plus a schnapps of your choice, for $15. And they do a mean schnitzel too, it’s all thin and tasty and crusty and oh so delicious. I love it with a big soft pretzel that’s dusted with just the right amount of salt. They should give a nice garlic/herb butter instead of the plain version though, that would be sublime!

Khacha Thai has got ridiculously good reviews online, and it’s just near the corner of my new place.. so I was keen to check it out. Surprisingly, I found out it was a Western-style restaurant. It serves Thai food, but has got wine glasses on the tables – which often sends off alarm bells in my head that it’s just over-priced food attracting the everyday Aussie that hasn’t a clue about authentic Asian food. It was further reinforced by the fact that almost every table there were Caucasians *gulps*…. But you know, the reviews ARE good! So off we went to try it out.
Turns out that my suspicions were totally unwarranted. The food was brilliant! And the service just wonderful. They were friendly and incredibly helpful, and not pushy at all (I often fear these sort of restaurants because they push and push you to order all sorts of dishes and wines, etc). Every staff member was genuinely friendly and polite, and very attentive.
At first glance, the menu seems to offer fairly standard Thai fare. But it’s their specials section that set them apart. Unique names, unique concoctions, and fabulous flavours. Every dish was presented beautifully and I loved the jumble of colourful vegetables that came with some of the dishes. The portions are really sizeable too, which off-set the cost.
A fabulous, hearty meal. I’ll definitely be back! And it’s 10% off if you takeaway.. and considering I live just round the corner, guess what I’ll be doing next time 😉
