Pink is always in, and Kusuka Corner is all over it. After becoming a cult favourite in Sydney, this Indonesian-inspired café/eatery has moved to Brisbane, opening its doors in Sunnybank’s Market Square. Instagrammable food and drinks, pretty pink interiors – what more could you want on your next dining date?
Kusuka Corner aims to represent contemporary Indonesian cuisine, and founders Liz and Mario sure do that with great finesse. Most of the items on the menu tell a story, ones of which stem from Liz’s home country of Indonesia.
Like the Papa’s Congee, which is a meal that’s been enjoyed for many years in Liz’s family. This dish was one of the biggest surprises to us, and the tasty porridge-like consistency felt like a warm hug with each bite.
Kusuka Corner’s food and drinks are as vibrant as the venue’s interiors. Some of our favourite foodie delights were the crumbed risoles packed with pastrami and creamy egg, the Nasi goreng, cassavaganzas with truffle mayo, as well as a drink named Somewhere In The Clouds, which is an iced blend of taro, coconut, and almond milk.
While you’re waiting for your food, take a look at the illustrated art piece hung up on the wall, which resembles a family gathering.
“Indonesians put a high value towards community, family, and being together,” Liz said. “This is also the heart behind our venue – to bring people to gather around the table together, sharing laughter, stories, and memories.”
Kusuka means “I like” in Indonesian, and well, it checks out on our end, because we definitely liked, and highly recommend this vibrant new café eatery for breakfast, brunch, lunch, or dinner.
