Purple Peanuts Japanese Cafe
If you love Japanese pop-rock culture and a few culinary surprises, this quirky rock’n’ (sushi) roll-inspired Japanese eatery will have you drooling. Serving up the expected Japanese favourites, sashimi, sushi and miso, Purple Peanut also offers little extras, such as the choice of brown rice in your sushi roll instead of the traditional white. It also serves salads, vegie and chicken burgers, and home-made treats like sweet green tea ganache, pralines and tiny cakes. Take a seat, enjoy the independent spirit of this quirky no-chain outfit near Southern Cross Station, and try to decipher the Japanese-language rock posters as you enjoy a delicious lunch set of slow-cooked pork belly or vegie curry.
