Review: Paleo Cafe (Bondi Junction) (3)

Okay, I know it may seem excessive to put up 3 posts about the same place in such a short time frame but I can’t help it. It’s just wonderful to go to a restaurant and be able to order ANYTHING off the menu without worrying about gluten, legumes, dairy, cooking fats, etc. Plus, I had been in Russia for 25 days and was ready for a 100% clean meal.

Alvaro wanted a smoothie, which turned into 2. The choc banana (cocoa, banana, honey, almond milk and coconut milk) was better than the revitalize (blueberries, banana, pineapple and coconut milk), but both were great: thick and not too sweet. Easily a meal on their own.

We also had ordered 2 mains without knowing that the smoothies would be that filling. The crisp skin pork belly with roast vegetables and pear kasundi (Indian spiced tomato and pear chutney) came out of the specials menu and was good but not better than the pork belly that used to be in the regular menu. I think the chutney, which tasted almost like plain paleo tomato sauce, didn’t mix that well with the pork and the veggies (capsicum, eggplant, broccolini).

The lamb burger was better. It came on a slice of linseed foccacia with mint aioli, rocket, tomato, onion, avocado and gherkin topped with beetroot relish and served with sweet potato chips and aioli. The (pickled) onion and the beetroot relish went perfectly with the tasty pattie, and while the linseed focaccia was, to me, unnecessary, it wasn’t bad at all.

I shall be back.
