As soon as I read this review of Coco Rice in Manchester Lane I wanted to try it for myself. After a torturous visit to the NGV to see the Dali exhibition (full of people using the audio tour shuffling along like zombies spending more time fiddling with their iPods than looking at the art) I needed something to restore me, and lunch at Coco Rice was exactly what I wanted. The fish box I chose featured fried fish, coconut rice with omelette, potato crisps and a sauce containing chilli and kecap manis. Good value for $11.50. The crisps are intriguing: thin potato chips like you would buy in a packet but hot and coated with a sweet sticky glaze. They’re delicious! There’s another good review here.
