Offering up delicious South Asian fare in elegant surrounds, Red Capsicum has become one of Rockdale’s most popular eateries. Open every day of the week, this popular restaurant specialises in serving Nepalese, Newari and Indian cuisine. With an extensive menu of traditional dishes, the restaurant offers something for just about every diner, including vegetarians and guests who don’t care for spicy food. Found on Sydney’s Railway Street, Red Capsicum is beloved across the city.
Right at Rockdale Station, Red Capsicum on Railway Street is bringing the heat to Sydney’s local foodies. Featuring a wide range of dishes from across South Asia, the restaurant aims to introduce guests to the very best of Indian, Nepalese and Newari foods. Those unfamiliar with Newari food will find that it’s a very rich, sumptuous cuisine – dishes like mutton fokso fry (marinated and fried mutton lungs) make for a truly exotic dinner.
Despite serving many exotic meaty dishes, Red Capsicum takes good care of its vegetarian guests, with options ranging from the kauli aloo tarkari (a Nepalese curry made with cauliflower, potatoes and fresh herbs), to saag ko tarkari (mustard plant cooked in pure ghee and ginger). All dishes can be customised to your liking, allowing you to choose a mild, medium or hot spice level. Try out the Nepalese momo (dumplings) filled with chicken or vegetables, deep fried or steamed alongside a tasty tomato chutney.
