A hidden Asian sanctuary in the heart of Leederville, this open-air restaurant is full of spice. The street-style menu is designed to share. It is cleverly colour-coded for those who want to moderate their chilli intake. (Spicy dishes are written in red).
From the Hawker Bites section, barbecue shichimi beef strips are charred and smoky from the grill. An accompanying satay sauce is subtle and the batons of cucumber are cooling and crunchy.
Korean fried sweet and salty chicken wings are super juicy. This dish is printed in red, so fair warning, but it could have been a lot hotter and spicier. It is a cracking dish, nicely messy to eat and probably hot enough for most. Brilliant with a beer.
Drunken noodles with mixed mushrooms are a nice breather from the chilli heat. Time has been put into the wine selection, with a range of whites up to the task of bold, sometimes spicy Asian flavours. Kitsch is a hugely popular fixture on the Oxford Street strip, attracting lovers of volatile spiciness, Asian street food and good cooking.
