Part Speciality Cafe, part Asian and Western fusion haunt, Cheeky Chewies on Aviation Road in Laverton delights with a diverse and refreshing menu. Open for breakfast and lunch, it is well worth the trip to Melbourne’s south-west to munch down on some Massaman Curry, Smashed Avo Brekky, an authentic malaysian Laksa or their famous Lemongrass Pork Steak Burger. Choose among their many smoothies and coffee creations to accompany your meal and put the icing on the cake with your pick from their extensive Cheeky Sweeth Tooth section. We double dare you!
This is an amazing restaurant, truly. I am addicted to the laksa but everything is delicious, and drinks are out of this world. Various choices - recommend the spice chai latte, though made as should, i'd like mine a bit hotter. The tofu was melt in your mouth, literally, and the burger was HUGE. That was for my 15 year old. The foster daughter had fish and chips, but the fish was perfectly tender and battered beautifully. Desserts: can't go past the tic-tac-toe, daughter didn't like the chia pod but I loved it. The only thing I'd say is as a pensioner, this was a very one off (maybe once a month) experience (if we save enough) because for four it was over $100. For three the night before (which got me hooked on the laksa) it was $99 and we only had mains, water, two drinks and two sides. This will sound strange but the laksa actually tasted like it was made with "Feeling", and I have to say the history on their website of this brother and daughter seems to ring true. I only wish we could get discounts for pensioners, we'd be there more often, but it was good. Very good. Suggest you book for dinner time.
Great food in a bright modern setting. There is a little playground inside if you have small kids. I love the seafood laksa, crispy Barramundi, and also the tofu-mushroom salad.
It was so busy! There' re no tables - so glad I've booked! Friendly, family atmosphere. Good food. Happy kids at playground. Had nice hot laksa on cold winter night - the best!
