Capital Kitchen provides an opportunity to the wandering zombie wage slaves to absorb some oxygen and vitamin D in the soul-destroying weatherless biosphere that is Chadstone. It’s done well to please the tastes of the uniform characters that frequent the mega shopping centre. Edgy enough with it’s clashing JB Hi Fi industrial lighting and faux mounted antler heads with a sales section that sells things for gourmet food sounds out this place is serious about its superficial and food.
It provides a strong case to not settle for the food court but you’ll over pay for regular café fare made from fresh, quality products. So why get a whopper when their grilled cheeseburger comes with tomato relish and brioche type buns? A toasted ham and tomato when you can opt for the club sandwich featuring poached chicken, egg, bacon, avocado and lemon mayonnaise, or steak sanger with fancy carmelised onion bread and onion jam? Because they are actually pretty good.
Won’t completely fill your void of emptiness but it’ll help. And make you look a little less anaesthetised. Maybe even slightly joyous.
