Canberra Centre’s pan-Asian dining precinct, Tiger Lane, has officially opened its final stage comprising of two South East Asian inspired eateries titled Supalove and Honey Toast.
Drawing inspiration from the Mekong Delta that travels through cities, towns and jungle the last piece of the Tiger Lane experience offers up expertly made, affordable Thai cuisine, decadent desserts, specialty coffee and grab and go breakfast and lunch options with a Viet-French twist.
This final stage represents the missing piece of the one-of-a-kind dining destinations pan-Asian puzzle, rounding out its culinary journey from Japan across China and snaking down through Vietnam, Thailand, Malaysia and Singapore.

Supalove is the larger of the two and will be serving everyday Thai food inspired by authentic flavours found in street vendors across Thailand, especially Bangkok.
Leading the kitchen is Head Chef Grace Prasongsook of Inka fame. She’s an expert in Thai cuisine with Thai, Chinese and Vietnamese roots, and learning how to cook in Northeast Thailand.
“Supalove’s menu is all about quality food made from quality produce that references traditional, old-world techniques, reimagined new-age and playful ways and served inside an environment that is as authentic as it gets, while still being in Canberra,” says Prasongsook.
“Best of all, its fresh, fast, affordable and cooked with a lot of Thai love.”
Standout menu options include the olive fried rice – a Bangkok speciality which uses preserved black olives and fresh olives stir fried into fried rice with egg and a side of fresh chilli, Thai herbs and peanuts, which you mix together before eating.
Classic Thai curries include a Massaman Curry made from scratch using locally farmed Claystone beef. A southern softshell crab curry is set to be a firm favourite, as a creamy laksa style curry inspired by flavours of Phuket.
Supalove is open from 11am until late Monday to Sunday, MAP.
Discover Honey Toast
The second venue, Honey Toast is a Vietnamese ‘hole in the wall’ concept. During the day it will feature grab and go style breakfast and lunch options with a Viet-French twist and at night it transforms into Tiger Lane’s dessert offering.
In daylight hours the display cabinet will see fresh items on rotation including a ham and cheese croissant with bahn mi flavours, a bacon and egg roll with siracha mayonnaise, salads and Vietnamese style baguettes. Drinks will include smoothies and juices as well as speciality Veneziano coffee blends and of course, traditional Vietnamese coffee.
As the sun goes down, the eatery morphs into its namesake with a menu that features decadently sweet honey toast dessert dishes, topped with wonderfully eccentric ingredients.
The must try offering is their signature Honey Toast, which is Three Mills Baker Baked Shokupan (Japanese milk bread), topped with honeycomb, honey and vanilla ice cream. Another standout includes the Crème Caramel Toast of sweet toast topped with salted caramel ice cream and a whole crème caramel.
A secondary cocktail bar will open from the back of Honey Toast to enhance Tiger Lane’s already elevated drink offering, servicing a selection for the most discerning of cocktail connoisseurs. Drinks include cocktails like the Tuk Tuk, made up of Roku gin, lime, house kaffir syrup and umami bitters, as well as mocktails including the Mai Little Pony non-alcoholic apple martini.
With the warmer weather, these drinks are perfect to enjoy in the new outdoor area on Narellan Street, surrounded by plants reminiscent of lush Vietnamese mangroves.
Honey Toast is open from 7:30am until late, Monday to Friday and 9am until late, Saturday, Sunday and public holidays, MAP.
