Pulsation is my second choice when I don’t bring my lunch to the office (the first one is Saladworks). I first tried this tiny cafe when it was called Pulse and was under different management. What got my attention was their use of organic ingredients and their kick-ass salads and smoothies.
Luckily, different management didn’t mean different menu. They still do their famous burgers (Moroccan lamb seems to be worth a try), big salads, daily soup special, and smoothies.
Last time I was there it was cold outside but the warmth inside made me choose a fresh salad (the only starch-free item in the menu) and a smoothie. The Thai beef salad was good, loaded with bean sprouts, carrots, tomatoes, cucumber, mint, sliced organic beef and Thai dressing. I’ve tried other 3 or 4 salads in the menu, they’re all tasty.

I’ve tried a few juices and smoothies here, too. Because I was craving orange juice for a while, I chose the Tropical Gang juice (mango, pineapple, lime, orange and passionfruit). The flavour combo is hard to beat. The only suggestion I’d make to the guys at the cafe is to serve the juices in proper glasses when you’re eating in.
