All of these are delicious and hard to choose one from. The specialties include their crispy duck pancakes, shen tung chicken and the delectable dry chilli beef. This place can be easily described as vibrant and welcoming.
4. Abell’s Kopi Tiam
The restaurant’s name is a mindful infusion of the two languages; Malaysian, and Chinese. The word kopi tends to stand for coffee in Malaysian, and tiam is a Chinese word for shop. This restaurant stands proud in one of Canberra’s southern suburbs, Abell’s Kopi Tiam. It is a small place but cozy and vibrant. If you can’t decide what to order, just pass a glance at their Blackboard of Specialties, which is re-written every day, to keep things fresh and active. With a sheltered, outdoor dining area, they have installed heaters and provide blankets at every table you want to stay at. Our favourites from their menu are a twice-cooked crispy duck on a bed of sweet potato mash, and the rich and tender beef rendang. We definitely recommend this place to everyone staying at Canberra!
