A fried chicken burger piled with som dtum, a fragrant mushroom and egg stir-fry, wok-tossed fermented pork with Chinese celery, melty matcha and dark chocolate chip cookies. Australian-Thai, with a side of Isaan. 

Palisa Anderson, daughter of Chat Thai founder Amy Chanta, started Boon as a place to bring together her Thai and Australian roots in a menu that fuses the best of both and knows when to keep the rest apart. Café-grocer by day, Isaan restaurant by night, and your first stop for Boon Luck Farm produce, Boon is the future of Australian eating, right here right now.
