A brand new Indonesian BBQ joint has opened in Newtown and suddenly all our plans are cancelled.
Say hello to Solo Newtown… you will be best friends real soon.
Solo is a café by day and restaurant by night.
As any Newtown café knows, coffee is to be taken VERY seriously, which is why only the best selection of coffee beans, both local and imported have been chosen to be roasted weekly.
Their brunch and dinner menu is just as serious; there is a combination of Australian and Indonesian influence which fits so well in their unique menu.
They have everything from mussels cooked in Bintang beer, with lemongrass, galangal, chilli, and garlic to trays of chicken with coconut rice, sambal kecap, sambal bajak, salad and slaw and short ribs, served with a watermelon pickle, beef rending quesadillas and pan-fried beef pancakes, and a mild lamb curry.
We also have to mention their dessert selections… doughnuts on sticks anyone?
To go with their coffee, they also have breakfast, salads and toasties menu!
They even have a whole section dedicated to snacks.. which has the Mars Bar and Nutella toastie….now we are talking.
