The chef/owner at The Pour Kids cafe in Melbourne is not only talented, he is also rather shy. My friend and I know this because we bailed him up after eating the best cheesecake we ever did have, and then felt a bit silly - I think we may have embarrassed him.
I didn't have any, but apparently the coffee goes alright too.
The Pour Kids was once a pet shop, and now it's become a colourful little find at 1E Winter Street, in Malvern, just off the south end of Glenferrie Road. Meals are made with skill and care, using locally sourced organic produce wherever possible - and the names of the dishes are as quirky as the name of the place itself.
The waiter did inform me that yes, indeed, people do have the courage to order The Leaky Coq ("poached chicken on French baguette, with braised leek and olive tapenade"). The name made me feel slightly ill, though, so I went with the Bck-Bck-Beckerk (you guessed it, chicken, with harissa sauce and a roasted sweet-corn relish). Mmm. Good.
I don't have any pictures for you of the food. I was too caught up in eating and conversation to take any photos of the food I ate. However, here's one they prepared earlier:
