A Modern Asian Fusion Restaurant


There is a tiny pocket of Asia tucked away on Brisbane's northside, and The Melting Pot Restaurant makes the perfect excuse to visit. Located within the Multicutural Community Centre, the restaurant is a place where several mouth watering South East Asian cuisines meet. You can try a wide range of authentic Chinese, Indian, Indonesian, Malaysian and Burmese savory and sweet dishes, and all the profits are donated to charity.

Daily Lunch Specials (11am - 2pm):

Every month, there is a new lunch menu with different specials on offer for each day of the week. We visited on a Wednesday, and the daily special was Burmese Pork Curry and Lemon Tea for $9.90. I ordered this, and I reckon it was the best pork curry I've ever tasted. This was followed by an equally excellent Black Sticky Rice for dessert and a delicious Lychee Garden drink with real lychees. I'll have to return to try the rest of the menu, such as the Laksa, Nasi Lemak, Char Kauy Teow, Hainanese Chicken, and Combination Ho Fun in Egg sauce.

Supporting International Charities:

David Mok (formerly Kwali, Toowong and Satay House, Fortitude Valley) is the humanitarian behind The Melting Pot, and he told me that every cent of the restaurant's profits are channeled into several worthy projects. Some money supports orphanages in Nepal, where they prevent children from being sold into trafficking. Some money feeds street children and the elderly in the slums of Chennai, India. There are also reputable charity projects in Kenya, Nicaragua and East Malaysia.

Burmese Pork Curry - a worthy cause and delicious too


I really like the idea that the money made from my lunch will eventually nourish hungry children in India. Not only that, the food is fresh and delicious. So, next time you're feeling peckish and in need of some heart warming South East Asian food, why not visit The Melting Pot and support some international charities while you eat?
