Kin By Us is an Asian inspired café in Macquarie Park, headed by previous My Kitchen Rules contestants Uel and Shannelle. Hidden by shrubbery, at the base of an apartment, the café has large communal tables, birdcages hanging off the roof and Kylie Kwong cookbooks lining the wall. It’s a hub for Macquarie University students and business people surrounding.
The menu is unassuming but delivers classic breakfast bites with an Asian spin, like the waffle belly, caramelised pork belly with a crispy waffle, shitake mushrooms and onsen egg, the chicken congee with pork floss, or the gorgeous black lotus, black sticky rice, coconut milk and fig. When it's time for lunch, the soft shell crab burger is a must. If you dare, there is a duran affogato, or play it safe with a delicious chai latte.
