Cafe Timor Leste brings East-West fusion food to the Sunset Fair
Cafe Timor Leste is coming to the Sunset Fair! The owners previously operated at the Mindil Beach Sunset Markets and also own Café Timor Leste in Darwin. The cuisine is a fusion of Eastern and Western flavours as it contains both Oriental ingredients and flavours of Timor Leste and the European flavours of Portugal. The owner, Hernany Lopes, originally from Suai, has many years experience cooking in Australia and is happy to be home.
Some of the traditional dishes you can try at the Sunset Fair include:
Batar Daan (vegetarian dish of mungbeans, eggplant, corn, kangkong & pumpkin shoots);
Caril (capsicum based coconut curry);
Ikan Sabuko (spanish mackerel with tamarind, capsicum and basil); Sutate (pork ribs in tamarind, palm sugar and soy sauce);
Chilli Beef (beef in sambal olek, with kaffir lime leaves & lemongrass);
Feijoada (borlotti beans, chorizo and smoked pork stew).
