I love discovering new places to eat and it even surprises my colleagues here that I've been able to get around and visit some of the famous places. Well, what can I say... if you give me a web-browsing enabled device, internet access and GOOGLE, I'll be able to find anything and everything!
On my 2nd weekend I visited Café Che, which is one arm of the 5 restaurants/cafes of the Harpo's group founded by Harpo Gooneratne, a former entertainer to now restaurant(s) proprietor. Under the Harpo's Restaurants & Cafes are 5 different f&b concepts- The Bay Leaf which is said to be one of the places to go for Italian, The Commons is a coffee house, The Park Street Mews is a fusion concept, Harpo's Pizza creating a local branding for pizzas, and last but not least the rebellious Café Che.
As the decos and pictures suggest, it's a theme cafe based on the legendary revolutionary and rebellious activist Che Guevera.
Ginger Ale- Rs. 100 (RM3)
Soup of the day: Italian Minestrone- Rs. 250 (RM7)
Marinated strips of chicken, lettuce, tomato & mayo wrap- Rs. 350 (RM10)
Chocolate brownie with vanilla ice cream and rice chocolate sauce- Rs. 325 (RM9)
The menu comprises the usual sandwiches, salads, soups and pastas but also a selection of Mexican and Cuban favourites and also local cuisines like rotti. The food is pretty straight to the point, nothing pretentious and appropriately portioned.
Café Che is also located along Stratford Avenue neighboring a few antique stores and galleries- Gandhara and Hermitage.
