kanteen - south yarra
Stopping for a coffee before we went to Herring Island at the delightfully rustic Kanteen, I spied my favourite food on the menu, black sticky rice with coconut milk! Nom! As a breakfast item! Ten points! It was delicious. Plump, sticky rice with creamy coconut milk and fresh banana (and strawberries if you're into that kind of thing). I had to lay on some sugar though because I like it sweet. The coffee was also excellent. The cafe was bustling, lots of cyclists there stopping for some mid ride nourishment. Kanteen is on the main Yarra Trail, and being that its almost entirely outdoors I'm not sure if its open in winter. But definitely something 'different' to check out, especially if you go to Herring Island. To make your own check out my recipe.
