At Antipodean you will not be given a menu once you have seated. Instead, you need to look towards the large black wall and you will see delicious mouth watering dishes scribbled on the walls with chalk. Once you are inside this modest cafe, you will find that the sound of the espresso machine and the smells of freshly cooked food are just too enticing. At a small cafe like this, the coffee is simply to die for as they serve the best of Indonesian coffee from Java and Sumatra.
However, Antipodean is famous for one thing; they arguably serve the best breakfast in town. Their delightful Big Breakfast dish is a hearty serve of mushrooms, scrambled eggs, bacon or sausage, hash brown and whole wheat toast. The best thing about their breakfast is the fresh ingredients and not to mention, the generous portion. Their hash brown is not the generic frozen type you get at the local supermarket, it is homemade mashed potato, sculpted into a block and then slightly pan fried. Delish!
For those opting for a healthier breakfast, they even serve a lovely porridge with honey and banana. The best thing about their breakfast menu is that you can have bacon and eggs anytime from 8 am till 8 pm at Antipodean. After all, breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and thus why not be able to have it at any time?
Overall the menu at Antipodean is so very healthy. One healthy example is their Grilled Paprika Chicken with Chickpea Salad. The fresh chickpeas and tomato slices are served cold together with the warm grilled chicken fillets which are infused in turmeric. They even have a very healthy Beetroot and Nut Salad, Thai Beef Salad and a Burmese Shredded Chicken Salad. All the dishes are unique and the presentation of their food is very wholesome.
When it comes time for dessert, walk over to the counter and check out the fresh cakes and cookies; from butter free chocolate cake, lemon meringue, carrot cake and even a home made apple pie.
This cozy place is so perfect for you to have some 'me' time or enjoy a good laugh with friends over a Sunday brunch since this place has such a good vibe. Antipodean is a small cafe that will leave a big positive impression.
