Concrete Jungle Cafe

I love the open-ness of this cafe, with big glass door and windows, and very modern decor and lighting. They have copper accents on the chairs and some lights. Some chairs were just stools while others you could lean back. Maybe having a mixture of different style table and chairs is the new thing. Bonus points to the waitress as she assumed we wanted the drinks and food to come out at the same time. Normally I have to ask, since I prefer taking a photo of the food with the drinks (I mean, who doesn’t?)

Berry booster smoothie: mixed berries, coconut yoghurt, mama powder, chia seeds, milk-$9

I normally don’t order smoothies outside of home since I can technically make them if I have time. For the price of this one, I don’t think there’s anything special about it. It wasn’t sweet, but didn’t have enough berry or coconut flavour either. Quite pricey for a smoothie and it wasn’t super pretty either. 

The coffee on the foam sunk really fast and there wasn’t enough foam, but had a nice bitter coffee taste without being burnt. 

Blueberry and lemon hotcake, topped with ricotta creme, maple syrup, coconut flakes, berries-$18.50

The hotcakes looked very similar to Harry’s Bondi, but just missed the mark. The hotcake was a bit wet/not fully cooked batter to get a nice crisp outside and fluffy inside. It was more on the sweet side, but loved how you could taste the lemon in it. I don’t think you can have a hotcake these days without edible flowers. Harry’s Bondi also had larger pieces of blueberries.

Nourish bowl: beetroot hummus, cucumber, sweet potato corn fritters, kale, avocado, cherry tomatoes, quinoa, sesame and tamarind dressing-$19.50

The corn fritters were quite small for the price, but it had an interesting taste as they used sweet potato. The flavour wasn’t super prominent so don’t expect too much sweet potato in it. Beetroot hummus could have had more of a punch to it. I liked how they coated the avocado with sesame seeds. I though some of the kale was more towards to oily side.

Blue majik smoothie bowl: blue algae, pineapple, banana, coconut water and coconut yoghurt, topped with blueberries and housemate granola-$17.50

The smoothie bowl had a lovely vibrant blue and so pretty to look at! It’s nice and refreshing thing to have during the summer. It wasn’t that sweet which I prefer, and good crunch from the granola. Decent amount of blueberries in the bowl as well.
