The Food


Taste culinary excellence.


Food is the fuel for your body and soul. In our eyes, the soul takes the majority of the focus. With a lot of thought and emphasis for nutritional, balanced meals for your body, it's the love that goes into the dishes that will 'talk' to your soul. It will make your tummy happy like we say here at the LHC. All our food is made fresh, on site and always by the Left-Handed Chef himself. Every plate that leaves our kitchen has its own unique touch and personality. With influences spanning 8 years in the Melbourne cafe scene and years more from Israel (the chef’s home country), we are happy to bring you a hybrid of meals made with love and lots of passion.

AT HOME

 

Your 'home away from home' is what we like to call it here at the LHC. Step into our family dining room which will take you back to your grandmother’s house so you can sit and enjoy meals made with love, all you need to do is relax and be happy. Our space has a lot of hidden charm, which carries a memory and a home feel to it. Someone told us “It's not your common Melbourne hipster-style cafe, I can sit here and relax, think about my day and talk to the guys that work here". There is no service screen between us, its like talking to your own family. Yes, this is our space. Your space. Home.

EHUD MALKA

HEAD CHEF / OWNER

My life as a chef is a great one. Despite all the early mornings and sacrifices that come with the trade, I wouldn't change it for the world. My father once told me "Do what you love, and you will be the happiest man in the world". Never has a man spoken truer words. I’m extremely passionate about what I do. I take my inspirations from the places I have visited and the people I've met along the way. Mostly, my influences, courage and determination comes from the people I love. My Family, friends and those closest to me keep me on top. I am very lucky to have such a strong support network, locally and abroad. My true passion is baking. I wake at 3am every morning to make bread for the cafe - it gives me time to enjoy the tranquility before the busy service period. I do all my thinking in this time, and it's usually when new ideas come to me. Besides working with food and experimenting with ingredients to create amazing flavour combinations, the thing that makes it all worth while are the people that appreciate my hard work. I love making people happy with food. There is no greater satisfaction then someone leaving with a happy tummy and a smile on their face. After all, food is the surest way to the heart.
