Darling Cafe in South Yarra is a must if you love pretty dishes, creative drinks in a lightbulb and a gorgeous interior.

Let’s talk menu, I’ve visited Darling Cafe so many times and tried many dishes!! My favourites would have to be the Smashed avo and the Sticky Pork Belly Stir-fry.

Smashed Avocado

Smashed avocado on sourdough w. kale chips, goats cheese & chilli cherry tomato concasse, egg and kipfler hash brown (added).

Smashed Avo is my staple, the one dish I order over and over again. I have to say this smashed avo was a darling of a dish 😉 ! So many flavours and textures, from the crunchy kale chips to the salty, creamy goats cheese to the lightly spicy tomato concasse. I added a poached egg, which in my opinion should be part of the dish, and a kipfler hash brown because who doesn’t love a hash brown?!!

Sticky Pork Belly Stir-fry

Sticky pork belly stir-fry w. spicy plum sauce, Asian greens & Jasmine rice




This sticky pork belly stir-fry tastes as good as it looks. I’m a sucker for pretty and colourful dishes, so I had to try this dish!! And I’m so glad I did, the pork was tender and succulent bursting with so much flavour. The serving is very generous, that goes for all Darling cafe dishes!
