I found out about Egg of the Universe (EOTU) because they are one of the available pick up points for Feather and Bone‘s (F&B) orders. Upon inspection of their menu I knew I would love eating there.
It is a bit of a hassle for us to get there but we finally managed. The cafe, which is actually part of a yoga studio, is bigger than what I thought and just as welcoming as I imagined.
They have the best table water ever: flavoured with mint leaves and cinnamon.
Gladys had a fresh mint tea and I had a delicious coconut milk latte.

Alvaro had a banana + macca [sic] smoothie (banana, maca, goji berries, organic whole yoghurt & milk, linseed) that perhaps didn’t look as pretty as the drink he had at Sadhana Kitchen but was equally good: thick and not too sweet.

We shared three dishes, starting with the slow-cooked pastured beef (12-hour low slow braised grass-fed beef with fennel pickle, bitter seasonal greens & roast sweet potato). The meat was ultra tender and the sauce was great. It reminded me to the pot roasts my mum used to make.

Bacon & eggs (F&B smoked bacon, fried organic eggs, spelt sourdough [gluten-free available], EOTU lacto-fermented tomato ketchup & pickle juice shot) was Alvaro’s favourite dish. I can see why, not only F&B’s bacon is one of the best you can find in Sydney, but the lacto-fermented ketchup and the juice shot (which we were told to drink before the meal as an aperitif) made it really special.

Last but not least, the perfect circle salad (raw & fermented salads, cashew cream, activated nut pesto, tahini dip & EOTU raw, activated crackers) was, too, one of kind. I loved every component of it, especially the smokey roasted cherry tomatoes.

Sweets, along with some pre-packed salads, are displayed at the entrance. We shared a banana friand and a chocolate beetroot cake, both perfect in taste, size and sweetness for us.
