CHINTA KECHIL
Sydney, New South Wales

Double Bay dining has had taste injected into it. Botox and Blahniks aside, this fashion focussed land of plastic cards, surgery and shoes often slips on the culinary catwalk. Now Simon Goh, the Manolo of Malaysian, has arrived. His petite 16-seater Chinta Kechil, rocks a traditional décor and stylish hawker food. Laksa is lavished with flavour. It's plus size prawns, slender sliced fish cake, and puffy fried tofu have people talking.

PROFILE BY BEST RESTAURANTS
Kechil is loosely translated as “small” in Malaysian and with just 16 seats available; it certainly lives up to its name. Goh has garnered a reputation for delivering authentic Malaysian dishes from his various restaurants across Sydney and Chinta Kechil is no exception. Laksa here, however, is a speciality. The flavours are more robust than what is commonly served at Malaysian restaurants, with less coconut milk and more spice. To get the full “chinta” experience, team laksa with other old favourites such as char kway teow, spicy mee goreng and sambal prawns. A man who has been quoted saying “It’s nice to be important but it’s important to be nice” is the type of person who does well in the restaurant industry. Go Simon Goh.
