Cheap Lunches. @City Cafe on City Walk


The charmingly (albeit often innacurately) named “Tasty Time” has moved on from its spot on City Walk just up from King O’Malleys.

In its place we now have “@ City Cafe” offering lunch and a soft drink for $10.

The decor is charmingly half-arsed with cod philosophy daubed on the walls, with later grammatical corrections, and nik naks planted here and there.

The staff seemed a little confused by my arrival but we agreed that I’d get the “peanut sauce chicken”.

As I hoped this turned out to be satay sauce.

The drinks are, horror of horrors, from the Pepsi stable, but I adapted and overcame.

The satay chicken came on a great bed of rice and even what I think was bok choy.

It wasn’t immediately obvious but it seems you can get two choices from the menu as part of the lunch deal.

They may be a bit unpolished, but they do a good feed for the price.

    I had never encountered the term cod philosophy before this review. Thank God I googled before teasing.

    Nik naks is worthy of a tut tut though, I think.

      Or even a tut-tut?
