After we fed the pelicans and toured the Chocolate Factory on Phillip Island, it’s time to find lunch!
A quick search on Google brought us to The Cape Kitchen and we gotta say, the ocean view from the restaurant was awesome!!
This is also a popular place for weddings and celebrations apparently because it offers breathtaking views of the Southern Ocean and coastline with a menu that is focussed on what is in-season as well as introducing unique Australian flavours.
Mr J recommended this place to us, and warned us about the long queues at the Kyoto Station outlet, so we were pretty excited when we found the main shop near our hotel! There was a little entrance next to Lipton cafe, and opposite Jeugia, a guitar shop, and we had to walk through a small alley before reaching the restaurant.
We were comparing the English and Japanese menus, and discovered that for the English version, the main pork dishes all come in sets (additional ¥300 for unlimited servings of barley rice), but since we wanted to minimise our carbohydrates intake, we ordered via the Japanese menu instead:
Fish & Bird Platter
A rather popular eatery located on the top floor of AMKHub, the queue was usually pretty long!
Probably because of the reasonable pricing with only GST and no additional service charge (plus student discounts), and relatively good food, thus making this place a popular choice for students! This place is also halal-certified 🙂
It’s a rather fuss-free casual place. Basically, you fill up the order chit based on whatever you fancy from the menu, go queue to order and pay up, go get cutlery and free warm or cold water while waiting for the food to be served!
Keep Calm and Eat Pancakes
We have been here for a couple of times already but didn’t blog about it. Since I am running out of ideas to eat alone in Upper Thomson (wifey is in London for a work trip), I thought of re-visiting! And also because I was somehow craving for pancakes. 🙂
The place is very simple and it serves just pancakes. There are a couple of savoury pancakes and a whole list of sweet ones.
The unique thing about the pancakes here is that they come in small, mini-sized ones instead of the usual big ones (hence the name Little Pancakes). This makes it easy to eat, and gives the illusion that there are more (in number)!

Woke up bright and early to have breakfast at 7:00 so that we can some time after breakfast to check out the rest of the hotel. We liked the beautiful flowers that were blooming in the little gardens! Then we realised another advantage of arriving at the beginning of breakfast time – we would definitely get hot food! However, breakfast was only ready around 07:15, so it might be a bit difficult if one was in a rush…
