Chinta is a zen oasis on Scarborough Beach Road (at the North Perth end), and the moment you walk in, you feel relaxed – it’s like being inside an exotic garden of delights.
The staff are lovely and found us a table straight away. We perused the menu and found it to be one of those menus where you can’t decide because everything sounds amazing.
The juice bar has every flavour you can imagine, and my partner chose a Garden Brew smoothie – bursting with berries, orange, apple, passionfruit and mango.
I chose the strawberry, hibiscus and rosehip iced tea, served in a deceptively large brass mug which stayed cool to the last drop. the flavours were incredibly good.
Spoilt for choice with options of nasi goreng, rendang, big breakfast, muesli, French toast and ribs, I finally decided on the swimmer crab omelette which was definitely a good choice. Accompanied by a chilli sambal and a beautiful fennel salad, I enjoyed every single mouthful.
My partner chose the Nasi Campur – a veritable collection of beef rendang, chicken satay, rice, fried chicken soft egg and sambal. He said that it was wonderful- the rendang cooked well and all items nicely spicy.
After all that we didn’t have room to sample the cake cabinet so will save that for next time. Chinta serves breakfast, lunch, and high tea. It was a little more expensive than our regular brunches, but definitely well worth it for quality innovative food in a wonderful setting.
