The Hamodava Cafe is in Bourke st and is run by the Salvation Army which help the less fortunate people. You can get a meal here for cheap, close to $0. Here they serve lots of western foods such as pastas, turkey, pork, roast potatoes and the like. Here they also do some great desserts.
But they need all the support that they can get over the Xmas and New Year period to be able to keep serving food to all of their customers.
The crackling was hard but good. I enjoyed the one single big piece of pork, peas and fried potatoes. Yum. I love to celebrate Christmas at the Salvation army and you can volunteer for them too.
