Pu’er on Danks

Pu’er on Danks is an Asian fusion restaurant and tea house. The decor is quaint and oriental inspired with porcelain tables and wooden stools.  Service is impeccable; staff are happy to share their favorites and explain the variety of teas and menu items.

What comes to mind when someone says, ‘let’s grab Chinese for dinner’? Basic takeaway, fried food and some fried rice? No, not at Puer.

The menu is modern Asian fusion, which means the flavors connect to traditional Chinese cooking and incorporate modern influences i.e. street food!



The tea steamed dumplings are scrumptious, the scallop dumplings are magnificent. The gyoza were perfectly cooked with a nice crunchy skin.



It is a toss up between the street food and dessert for my favorite component of the meal. Hong Kong mini burgers comprised of a panko crusted piece of pork on a sweet golden bun. Wagu’s taco’s were totally amazing the wagu melted in my mouth and the taco bun was deliciously light and fluffy.



The green beans with pork was divine and a huge portion.  Three cup drunken duck was so tender and the meat fell off the bone, the photo does not do the drunken duck justice.

All the meals were delicious and seasoned to perfection. I have to warn you SAVE ROOM FOR DESSERT.



The desserts were divine. I loved the coconut sorbet and black sticky rice with the gorgeous coconut syrup to drizzle on top! The red bean donuts were light and fluffy and totally Moorish!

The teas are perfectly matched to your taste and desire. The tea light candle creates a great ambiance on your table and keeps the tea warm.


Puer is a great local Chinese restaurant that I would go back to as the food was enjoyable. The street food was so easy to share. The food is unique and a touch more expensive than traditional Chinese.

It would be formidable for me not to mention the salt water fish tank, if the ocean and city views are enough you enjoy the gorgeous tropical fish tank filled with coral and loads of fish ‘nemo’ while you enjoy your time at the Blackwall Café.

Prato Cafe Diner – Abbotsford

Prato Café Diner


There is never a dull moment when dining at Prato. In the extra large café, the constant bustle of clients can be heard.  The wait staff are uber friendly and attentive that they even remember you name and order. The kitchen staff busy creating, baking and preserving.

barley porridge

The décor is warm, cosy and has a gorgeous garden outlook from the back veranda; it can, however, get a little noisy when it is a full house.


Most of Prato’s products are made in house, the bread, kefir, muesli, cakes and cookies just to name a few! Campos coffee is served and perfectly crafted each time.

beetroot bruschetta

The food at Prato is superb! Every dish is impeccably seasoned and presented; the passion the kitchen team has for food is evident in each dish that is served. The banana bread is the cake of choice, made on sight and super delish!azimuth:0.000000||elevation:0.000000||horizon:0.000000

The breakfast/brunch menu has loads to choose from; the house made muesli or quinoa porridge are my favourites. The sautéed mushrooms on toast are amazing, as is the house smoked bacon and egg roll.Bacon and egg roll

A plate of house made scones with jam and cream, will tame even the wildest hungers in need to a tasty and hearty afternoon tea.azimuth:0.000000||elevation:0.000000||horizon:0.000000

Try the available bruschetta’s; they make a robust meal packed with flavour combinations which include beetroot ‘n fetta and hommus ‘n roasted cauliflower.
campos coffee

Sourdough is made on site, the pistachio and fruit loaf is perfect, bacon is house smoked, kefir is fermented on sight, the guys in the kitchen are passionate about creating good quality whole food.


What is Prato missing? A big breakfast plate – the quintessential Sunday option. You can assemble your own by ordering the eggs and adding extra’s as you wish. Prato’s service can be a little sluggish, during busy periods.

I am a Prato breakfast/brunch fan; it is my go to place in the Inner West. Parking is ample and untimed.
