The Specials Board of the Fusion Café (Sydney, Building Civic) was far too tempting. Have often passed this café without venturing in and was curious about who ran it. Our friendly owner hails from the sub-continent and is keen for new custom, so expect (as was received) good and fast service.

Having recently tossed aside any health-related New year’s resolutions, the Cajun burger with chips looked tempting. I wasn’t disappointed. It was a large burger and a large side of chips. Well worth the $10.

The $3.50 coffee was good as well. This place is not amazing (yet) but if the owner’s enthusiasm is any guide it will be one worth watching. 2 #Canberra Beanies.

Whilst there we witnessed a photographer friend of the owner taking photos of a sumptuous banquet platter for their new website. So I’ll definitely be back to sample that at some point. It’s around $22 but looked amazing.

Anyone who has worked around London Circuit in Civic would have noticed the usual long queue for weekday lunch specials at the Indo Café (located in the old Waldorf building). The café is run by a lovely family who have also recently opened an outlet in the lower food court of the Canberra Centre, also called Indo Café).

The curries run at a very reasonable $8, so a meal with a drink will set you back $10. That’s much cheaper than a flight to Jakarta. Goes without saying that the food is authentic Indonesian cuisine and its very tasty.

Also, if you have worked late and missed your usual lunch break it’s worth popping into the Canberra Centre Food court after 2.30pm to see if they have any boxed-up left-overs from lunchtime. You can occasionally do yourself a post-lunch-rush favour & grab $5 box &/or $5 entree pack from Indo Café. This joint is always satisfying and deserves 3 #Canberra Beanies.
