Capital Kitchen

Always walked past, noticed the existence but never tried the Capital Kitchen at Chadstone shopping centre…
Directly opposite GP within the vicinity of luxury branded retailers sits capital kitchen.
A breakfast and lunch only modern cafe blended with French training and Asian techniques behind an Italian heritage – chef Tony Chiodo.

I tried their Chicken Tenderloins served with a Char-Grilled Corn Chive and Puffed Corn Salad with a Smoked Almond Dressing. The tenderloins were warm when the dish arrived and nicely cooked – taste was perfect. Corn was lovingly light but the dressing lacked in flavour. I wish there was more dressing or more flavoured on the salad.

The second dish which my boyfriend ordered was Southern Style Calamari with a Red Cabbage, Fennel and Rocket Salad with Romesco Sauce and Lime. Again the temperature of the Calamari was warm. Again quite a light meal especially after a good afternoon of shopping! The flavour was pleasingly strong.

Beverage wise, we ordered a Iced Coffee and Chocolate Milkshake. Iced coffee was quite bitter – definitely for those coffee lovers! Don’t worry it wasn’t burnt! As for the shake, it above average – but wasn’t a thick shake. Chocolate sweetness was just right!

Service was average – Pretty much find yourself a table and order form the counter. The service staff will bring the food to you, remember your table number! Their table numbers are quite small.

Atmosphere was amazing! I felt like I was at a winery, with the wooden furnitures and high chairs seeing others sip on their wine after a day of shopping therapy…
