Modern Asian with an Australian twist, is the perfect way to describe La Kuaizi. Cosy and stylish, this restaurant and cafe in the heart of Melbourne’s CBD is the perfect spot to kick off your day with a coffee and pork croquettes on a grilled baguette with poached eggs, or to while the day away feasting on pulled lamb tacos with slaw, kimchi and pickled ginger over a cheeky glass of wine. Or, for the evening crowd, sample an array of tapas and sharing plates like kimchi fries with melted cheese, slow-cooked beef ribs and spicy grilled calamari with coconut sambol and Asian herbs. Whatever tickles your fancy, La Kuaizi on Manchester Lane has you covered. As with any Melbourne foodie favourite, reservations are essential.
