Cafe Kentaro - Dishes with a Japanese twist
Tired of visiting cafes serving standard cafe dishes, then Cafe Kentaro may be the place for you. Enjoy a variety of everyday dishes with a Japanese twist.
Located in leafy Bourke Street, Surry Hills, Cafe Kentaro is a very popular venue for brunch so get there early to get a table. Serving traditionally named dishes like Tacos and Hot Dogs fused with a Japanese influence makes for a very interesting dining experience.
Having ordered the 'Japanese Yakisoba Hot Dog' for brunch, I had no idea what to expect. With an interesting mix of a pork sausage, noodles, mustard and ginger, it was a taste that I had never experienced before and it is difficult to compare it to a dish I have had previously.
This is what makes Cafe Kentaro such an interesting place to try. From my experience, people are often looking for something a little different with their choice of cuisine and Cafe Kentaro certainly delivers in this area.
I also had the opportunity to sample the 'Not So Mexican Tacos' from the menu. These weren't your usual tacos - they consisted of brown rice, pork belly, crispy vermicelli and garlic shoots and provided a burst of flavour which left a lasting impression and a craving for more. A dish I would highly recommend to anyone.
Something else that caught my eye on the menu was the 'Fizzy Rhubarb and Ginger Beer'. Being a fan of both rhubarb and ginger, this was a great beverage and once again proving that at Cafe Kentaro they do things a little differently.
Cafe Kentaro had a rustic look about it, the staff are casual yet friendly but the food is what it is all about. Flavours from cuisines across the world, fused together to provide a cafe experience that is somewhat different from most.
