Chippendale is getting livelier by the day, thanks to a swathe of new additions in Kensington street. Glider KS is one of these new spots, a great little cafe with a Thai inspired brunch menu. The staff here are absolutely lovely too.
The coffee is from Single Origin Roasters and is excellent. How gorgeous is the cup and spoon?
|Pan fried marinated pumpkin on toast|
The pan fried pumpkin is served in a mash-like consistency. It's quite fragrant and flavoursome, with plenty of Thai herbs.
|Traditional duck rice paper rolls|
The duck rice paper rolls are from the lunch menu - having spotted them on a breakfast visit, I knew I had to come back and try these! The flavour of the rolls are subtle; the roll consists of lettuce, vermicelli, crisp coconut pancake, duck and herbs. It's served with a Thai style chilli dipping sauce, which adds a spicy kick to the dish.
|Coconut sticky rice with mango and berries|
Following on the theme, The sweet offering at Glider KS is inspired from a popular Thai sweet - mango sticky rice. This version sees the addition of berries too. It's a delicious and very filling dish.
