I first visited Purple Peanuts when I was in the CBD serving jury duty, and since then this is by far my favourite Japanese Cafe. Authentic too!
On Saturday ,after having so much sugary food, I thought it would probably be a smart idea to find something healthy to eat. for dinner
So, I walked over to Collins St with my friend Janelle to visit my favourite Cafe. (Purple Peanuts is located a block away from Southern Cross Station, and when you enter the store you will be amazed by it’s funky decorations.)
I ended up ordering their Tsuke Don, which is Premium Grade salmon sashimi marinated in mirin, sake, sesame & soy. Served with vinegared rice mixed salad. Apparently a common fisherman’s breakfast at the well renown tuskiji fish market.

One thing that I strongly recommend everyone to try is their macarons, that are Japanese flavoured. It comes in a box of three and cost I think $7 from memory. These macarons are special because it has a little surprise when you bite into it!

    Everything from that there is amazing, but it’s very busy during the work hours, long lines that go outside the door, but it’s definitely worth the wait anywayz :)

    • @winnie 2, check out the menu photo :) Reasonable :)
      Sushi is average price you get at most place, and rice and noodles are around $10 mark.

    • @Joanna The Tsuke don was rather salty for me, and made me feel really thirsty later. I suspect it’s MSG or something.
      I’ve only had their prawn sushi rolls (brown rice), it was fresh and tasty! :D
