Hom's Cafe in Darwin

Prior to coming to Northern Territory I was told by friends that the barramundi in Darwin was an absolute must as its usually fresh and sourced locally. So I took their advice and grabbed my Lonely Planet book and a pen and sat in Hom's Cafe, which sits on the busy strip on Mitchell Street.

I always walk past this cafe and it tends to be filled with busy travellers or locals so that enough persuaded me. I ordered barramundi in focaccia bread with skinny fries.

The barramundi was garnished with cucumber, tomato, onion, lettuce and topped perfectly with tartare sauce and not to mention two large slabs of toasted focaccia bread. The portion was larger than I expected, not sure how much I paid for it, think it was around the $15 mark but it was tasty and worth every dollar. The fish was grilled and fell apart in my mouth and the skin on top was crispy, each bite I had I could hear a crunchy snap.

This is a lovely cafe for those who want good fresh food and its also a great place to sit outside and watch the world go by.
