Entertainment Voucher 12/13: 25% off (up to a value of $40)

I have a new favourite cafe, Kinky Monkey is its name.  It is located on the Plaza, amongst the Peninsula Apartments in the Circus, and had just opened 3 months ago.  We found this cafe in the trusty ol’ Entertainment Book. Not entirely convinced to lunch there in the first instance, I asked myself, “Would there really be a good cafe around that area?”.  We arrived and was totally blown away.  (It reminded me of never judging something until you have at least tried it!) The place looked awesome with its modern and colourful setting.  And my oh my, the ambience is totally amazing, you can sense the freshness in the air, the openness and the brightness. Walk out in the other direction and you are faced with a view of Perth city! Love it! I’d been back three times since :)

They have a great breakfast and lunch menu, and most importantly interesting selections as well.  For lighter meals, one can select the various salads, quiches, pies and not to forget desserts at the front counter.

We had the following for lunch:

  • Coffees – Flat White, Latte, Cappuccino, Mocha
  • Fillet Steak Burger ($17)
  • Chorizo Fungi ($19)
  • Kinky Burger ($17)
  • Corn Fritter Stack ($17)
  • Tandoori Quesadilla ($19)



The coffees were great!  For those interested, you can get one free coffee from the shop-a-docket voucher (click link here) Expires on 17 Sept 2012.  Bargain :)
The Fillet Steak Burger came with honey fillet steak, beetroot relish, tomato, baby spinach & wasabi mayo served with chips.  This burger is amazing!  The fillet steak was juicy and flavoursome and it made you wanting more with each bite.  Did I mention it was huge as well?  The chips hit another spot, crunchy and flavoured with some sort of spice (maybe paprika).  This won  me over to go back there again!
Chorizo Fungi consisted of the chorizo sausage on ciabatta with field mushrooms, caramelized onions, poached eggs and rocket.  Another great dish.  Huge serving, and what I like the most was the salsa on the side.  More of those please.
Kinky Burger consisted of black angus ground beef, swiss gruyere cheese, lettuce & tomato kasundi served with chips.  I must admit it paled in comparison with the Fillet Steak Burger but has its own merit as well.  Lots of chips on this plate.
The Corn Fritter Stack came with smoked salmon, rockets and a poached egg on top.  I only managed to have a small bite of this dish so could not really tell how good it was but great feedback from others.  Love the look of it too!
Tandoori Quesadilla consisted of chicken, red onion, avocado, tomato salsa & cheese served with raita.  Corn chips were served on the side as well.  The dish looked dry on the outset but actually had the right balance of sauce and fillings inside.  The raita was a most welcoming accompaniment to the dish!
All in all I was extremely satisfied.  The service was great, very friendly, informative and laid back, totally befitting the place.  A great cafe to visit for the yummy food or just to sit back and relax with a cup of coffee and cake and soak up the atmosphere!
I’m participating in a Walking Program at work and decided to walk there for coffee one day – 3.5km later…..tummy filled with the Orange and Poppy seed Muffin :)
