This Asian grocer that also doubles as a café will be doing Thai coffees and cold pressed juices all day. You can also pick up a Thai sandwich stuffed with green chilli relish, spicy pork sausage, soft-boiled egg, soft herb and pickled cabbage; or try their boat fried rice, with spicy shrimp paste, garlic fried rice, shredded green mango, five spice, sticky pork and salted duck egg to nix that NYD hangover.
Hunker down and battle the fallout from your New Year's adventures with coffee and some sort of salty snack from this beloved Surry Hills café. It's possible that New Year's Day might be the only time there's not a waitlist for a table, but either way get in early when it opens at 8am.
