Tasty treat at Kar­ratha cafe

Af­ter six years liv­ing in Kar­ratha, Gin­ger Lo knew it was time to chase the dream.

Ms Lo went in with a hand­ful of friends and fam­ily to start up a new cafe in Kar­ratha, which is due to hold its grand open­ing in the next few days.

Lo’s Cafe is the fourth oc­cu­pant of the ground level of the Quar­ter, fol­low­ing hot on the heels of Asian spe­cialty food store Ce­cel’s, which opened re­cently.

Ms Lo said like many, her fam­ily moved to Kar­ratha af­ter hear­ing of the op­por­tu­ni­ties dur­ing the boom.

“It was boom­ing dur­ing that time, ev­ery­one was busy and it was very easy to get a job,” she said. “In that time I have found Aus­tralia to be very open minded. We can see In­dian here, Malaysian, Chi­nese food. Where we come from, Tai­wan, is a small coun­try but one full of de­li­cious food.”

One item sure to ap­pear on In­sta­gram feeds across Kar­ratha is the toast box, a dessert for shar­ing full of ice-cream, fruit, cream and choco­late.

“In our coun­try we have that kind of sweet dessert ev­ery­where, so we did a slightly dif­fer­ent ver­sion to make it more suit­able to Aus­tralia,” Ms Lo said.
