Straits Cafe

694 Doncaster Road, Melbourne, Victoria

A paper menu tacked to the window is a sure sign you’re in for a budget feed but what it doesn’t guarantee is the quality. Thankfully, this Malaysian hawker-style eatery delivers, making up in flavour what it lacks in aesthetics. Freshly wokked char kwai teow masterfully combines flat noodles with prawn, squid and sweet reddish-brown Chinese sausage; vibrant coriander makes a welcome contrast. An appetiser of piping hot spring rolls might arrive after the mains but they are perfect for dunking in a spicy Malaysian curry. No frills, no fuss, just fast, fine Malaysian fare in the heart of Doncaster. Also in Wantirna.
