Nestled in the heart of Newtown, Comeco is a delightful vegan Japanese cafe. You’ll feel welcomed by its warm service and ambiance when you arrive.
They've got a relatively small menu featuring some classic Japanese dishes like curry rice and tempura. The food I’ve tried here is overall tasty with great attention to details.
Their tempura and onigiri plate is a great choice for anyone who wants a bit of everything. The Japanese curry rice is tasty with rich curry, but the katsu is a bit too thin and not as ‘meaty’ as I’ve hoped. But I’d still recommend the katsu curry rice instead of the one without as it’s only $1 difference.
If you're up for a snack, their vegan chicken karaage with a karashi mustard sauce is great. If you are craving desserts, try their sweet potato doughnuts. I’ve tested the yuzu custard and kinako sugar flavours, and both of them are delicious with a fluffy and chewy doughnut. For drinks, the sesame and hojicha lattes are classic Japanese choices that’s hard to find elsewhere.
