Good ambience, decent food

See all photos here http://www.pepperminter.com/2015/03/cafe-lokal.html

Food is decent with limited choice. More suitabe for chilling rather then a dinner gathering. Perhaps if you are there for a drink over snacks that's fine but if just dinner then maybe can consider somewhere else.

 Strong Aussie vibes with a touch of Peranakan style, The Lokal (which also means "bar or dining place" in German) is nestled at the corner of Neil Road. Led by Chef Darren Farr, The Lokal is all about Western comfort food and gourmet coffee which beans are from Sarnies. Despite of the crowd, service by the waitresses are well delivered with courtesy and hospitality. I ordered a burger dish, but forgotten its name. Served with squid ink (or was it charcoal) buns, bacon, sunny side up with a thick slab of perfectly done salmon. Not only was it tasty, but definitely Instagram worthy! Lu orderd Roasted Chicken Panini which did live up to expectations. As mentioned earlier, beans are from Sarnies as this cafe is co-owned by the folks of Sarnies. Besides Latte ($5.5), German wheat beer Paulaner is also on tap. Lastly, although both of us were filled, but we couldn't resist the temptation of Sticky Date Pudding. Blame it on the good sales speech by the waitress. Served with a heap of vanilla ice cream, piping hot pudding and adorned with a thick layer of caramelized sugar, it was diabetic (but shiok)! Opened till 1030pm, The Lokal is probably one of the spots for dinner and wind down after a long day of work.

The LoKal, located on Neil Road, is one cafe that I really looked forward to visiting as it has a few differentiating points from other local cafes. The place is opened by the same folks behind Sarnies (said to be another great joint) and the cooks hand-make quite a fair bit of the ingredients used in the cafe's dishes. The concept of the cafe specifically emulates a Melbourne cafe too.
 
 Although it threw me off at first as it was served cold, the creaminess of the avocado with the flavour from the chicken and aioli came together very well. The bread was chewy inside, while there was an occasional crispness from the bacon. It may look simple, but every mouthful was delicious. Order it.
 
 This was listed as highly recommended by a lot of reviews and no wonder why. It is a unique brunch item. The bread was a nice dense texture and moist inside. The light banana sweetness was made even better when combined with the yogurt, which was soaked up by the bread. Though the portion was just about a fist size, for one person, it is just right as too much could get cloying towards the end, especially so for people with less of a sweet tooth.
