I like to participate in life rather than be a spectator. Music, dancing, theatre, travelling, food, cycling and walking are some of my passions. Writing is an enjoyable pastime that allows me to share my experiences.

Come in for good karma

All roads lead to south-east Asia on the Haymarket end of Pitt Street. For a taste of Thailand in casual, relaxed surrounds grab a seat in Boon Cafe. Boon signifies good karma and whether dining alone or with a group, you will experience it. Many people call in to sample their fresh juices and tisanes as well as their special dessert offerings, such as gelato-filled buns and pandan custard.

I popped in for a solo late lunch before a movie and was very comfortable in a window seat watching busy Pitt Street. I was very impressed with the single origin roaster's coffee. The large cup was $5 and was creamy, strong, slightly bitter and hot.

The day menu focuses on light fresh meals, especially 'sarnis'. The chicken cashew sarni on sourdough was delicious. It was a true fusion of flavours creamy, crunchy, crispy with a touch of chilli and sweetness. During the evening, the menu highlights the Isaan cuisine of northern-Thailand.

The cafe is large with a variety of seating options it has a happy buzz with quite a quick turnover of multinational patrons, but you are not made to rush. The staff are friendly and polite and the open kitchen is immaculately clean. There's table service, takeaway options and an on-site Asian grocery store, offering fresh fruit and vegetables.
