Seriously Good Modern Asian at Cronulla Beach

Alphabet St - The Stylish Interior

I'm usually the first person to be wary of any restaurants in beachy or touristy locations but I was proven wrong with this modern Asian eatery at Sydney's Cronulla Beach.

Alphabet St is one of the most successful Asian fusion restaurants I have eaten at. Their modern menu is packed full of flavour with a flair for South East Asian and Indian dishes.

Soft Shell Crab

They say you eat with your eyes first and their plating looked mouth-watering. The two mains we ordered on the night were among the best Asian dishes I have eaten without the fine dining price tag.

Crispy Pork Belly
Our Pork Belly Main

We ordered one of their signature dishes - crispy pork belly with plum sauce and green apple. The pork was the star of the dish, cooked perfectly and the plum sauce was sticky and sweet. This was a modern take on a classic Chinese dish with the green apple adding a refreshing element to the sweet pork.

Pong gari curry

If you're not a fan of sweet mains you'll have to try their spicy dishes. One of these being the Indian inspired Pong Gari curry with prawn, Asian celery and baby corn. I admit I'm a novice when it comes to Indian food and this was actually my first taste of an Indian curry. The Pong Gari curry was packed full of flavour with just the right amount of spice and perfectly cooked prawns.

Crispy Snapper

Other dishes on their menu include some Thai favourites like Massaman and Jungle curries and coconut chicken or sweet pork salads. The snapper dish at the neighbouring table also looked absolutely incredible.

The menu is by no means extensive but all of the dishes we saw coming out of their busy kitchen looked incredible. It was easy to see why every table was occupied at this trendy looking eatery.

My only criticism is the floor of their outdoor eating space was quite uneven and sloping at our table which wasn't ideal. My recommendation is to book a table indoors as the interior is decked out quite nicely.

Located on Cronulla's busy Kingsway, a stone's throw from the water's edge, Alphabet St was a pleasantly surprising find.
