Shopfront

Plush modern chilled out cafe/restaurant. Wooden tables and chairs with lounge type seating around the sides. Been there twice now and have always been impressed with the salads.

Inside

You have to try the couscous, roasted pumpkin, pinenuts, french beans, asparagus and rocket salad. A light salad, but with gorgeous flavours. The sweet roasted pumpkin was definitely the highlight of the dish.

My other companions had the salmon salad - a large fillet of salmon perfectly grilled to pinkness inside.

Another one had the glass noodle salad with chicken, cherry tomatoes, sesame seeds and doused with a soy sauce dressing. I was initially skeptical at first, but immediately regretted my skepticism upon feasting my eyes on it. Tried a bit and it was deliciously fresh, light on the soy sauce and generous with their portions of chicken.

Haven't tried their other meals, but judging from the quality of their salads - it's definitely a safe bet. And yes, Haggers, it hasn't escaped me that there's a Blue Orange in Fulham, London. This one in Bondi at night, it may be possible to get plastered in style too.

Is that the Perth Hag that i see?

Would it be expecting too much to see her doing some of the reviews of the places you both ventured to in Shiddeney?

Vegetables are great, but the Heart Start Defibrillator is better (At saving your life, that is ;) ).
