Café Kasturi

Café Kasturi is my Lanny Boggs of George St. Always there but never gave it a chance. That was until I got an A1 Top Side hot tip from a workmate who is quite fond of the joint. Don’t be fooled by the green signed frontage with the Ikea tables and chairs that are unseated, for there’s a stylishly modern upstairs section with white table clothes. Pleasant on the food front, a split Malaysian and Thai menu at low low prices. A little stingy with the chicken in the grilled satay sticks served with rice cubes and a nutty peanut sauce. Sambal prawns a bit more generous but worthy of the price, chilli bite that gently slaps the mouth. Typically tender beef rendang burns the food cavity a little more that’s both rich and vibrant. Desserts stereotypically Asian, apple or banana fritter and vanilla ice-cream, more interesting is the sago pudding sweetened by palm sugar with a coconut and syrup pour over. The quiet ones you’ve got to look out for, I’d go back with a smile on my face.
