Happy Chef

266 King Street, Newtown, New South Wales

All Details

If you like your meal fast with big servings and no frills, then Happy Chef ticks all the boxes. The abrupt service matches the ‘get-in, get-out’ vibe, but that hasn’t stopped this cheap eat from becoming a Newtown favourite (it just adds to the charm). Scour the back-lit pictures above the counter and point to your desire among the mix of Malaysian, Chinese and Indonesian dishes on offer. The laksa is popular, but for a spice-hit, go for the fried Sichuan eggplant. Grandma’s tofu is the culinary equivalent of ‘don’t judge a book by its cover’, proving to be a wonderful sweet mess of pork, chilli and (of course) silken tofu. Happy chef equals happy customer!
