After venturing south into Balaclava for lunch a couple of times the week before I reverted to heading north along Chapel St last week. The Mission cafe in Prahran used to be a place for the down and out to get a cheap meal, but its now hipster central with a contemporary menu. The cafe is part of a catering business that supports the work of the Praharan Mission and also provides employment opportunities for the disadvantaged.
Their pulled pork and coleslaw sandwich on a brioche bun with enough mustard to make your eyes sweat is a revelation, and the coffee is good too. I’ll be returning here.
At Mileto’s I had a good chicken schnitzel burger with coleslaw, tomato and cheese. Coleslaw is so hot right now. Good thing I love it. Their coffee is good too, and I like the atmosphere inside. Another place worth returning too.
At Thai to go on Chapel St I ate a very mild massaman curry with beef, potatoes and rice. It was average and nothing memorable or worth returning for.
