$8 lunch @ Ceylon Cafe Woden

I came across this lunch and dinner specials sign as I walked past the Woden Bus Interchange. An $8 rice and curry sounded like a good deal. The cafe was empty when I arrived (around 12 noon) and there was no one to be seen. I could hear someone out the back and called out […] Read more…
