Concrete Jungle: A cool name and very apt for its location in Kensington St, Chippendale, where It surrounded by concrete pylons and towering apartment buildings. Industrial design with a huge featue artwork of a lions head with an urban mane made up of skyscrapers depicticting the name of the cafe ‘Concrete Jungle’.
We arrived early on a weekday, very lucky I believe, for it is extremely busy of a weekend with all the hype following their beautiful “blue majic” dish that is going viral on Instagram.
This place is known for its healthy, colourful and fresh dishes including a beautiful pink dragonfruit chia pudding and an amazing wagyu bresaola with broccolini, leek, kale and tahini.
On this occasion we tried two different dishes: the Nourish Bowl – a healthy plate of beetroot hummus which popped from the plate with bright pink colouring, kale, avocado, sweet potato, quinoa, tahini and tamari dressing. The flavours worked really well together and looked so inviting. One of the better healthy bowls we have tried.
We also tried the blueberry and lemon hotcakes, light and fluffy, made with ricotta cream. A perfect meal to fill you in the morning. Topped with maple syrup, fresh fruits including strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, and choc coated coconut flakes. This was an absolutely lovely dish and presented really nicely with edible flowers.
Thanks to Wasamedia for the invitation to experience this great café.
