Recipe - Nasi Goreng

Opening in 1994 at the southern tip of Coogee Beach we quickly became a place for local's and tourist to come and relax whilst taking in the breath taking views over the Pacific Ocean. 

The stunning views we are so blesed to hold are nothing short of spectacular, but dont forget about the food. 

Thriving through the years we have had many dishes that have pleased the crowds, but none quite as much as our signature dish, Nasi Goreng. An Indonesian fried rice meal packed with flavour and complete goodness, it something not to be missed. 
So finally, after years of questions and hidden secrets (on our end of course) we are releasing to you the treasures behind our famous Nasi Goreng, allowing you to make the fan favourite all in your own home.
