Solo Newtown

Brunch staples with clever Indonesian hacks.

In a food mecca like Newtown, filled to the brim with dining options, standard cafe fare just doesn't cut it anymore. An edge is needed, and for newcomer Solo Newtown, that edge is the ability to hack Aussie cafe staples with Indonesian flavours. For brunch, think corn fritters with Indonesian spices, eggs and soldiers topped with spiced eggplant puree and an omelette with caramalised tempeh. If you're visiting for dinner, you can expect to see Solo's take on bruschetta: crispy tempeh, tofu, cabbage and soy sauce. There are more clear-cut Indonesian dishes as well; nasi goreng, sticky beef short rib and ayam bakar chicken served with coconut rice. On second thought, perhaps it is better to define Solo Newtown as a modern Indonesian eatery with an Aussie twist. Either way, it's affordable, tasty and a little bit different which is more than enough to warrant to visit or two.
