I have been eagerly waiting for this healthy cafe to open, and when I got an invitation to attend their opening I jumped at the chance.
I know one of the Chefs and have tasted his food in the past. I was however interested to see what he was going to create in this new “healthy cafe” concept.
Food for me has to taste good….real good. I love food, and I’m very opinionated about food. If it’s good or bad I’ll shout about it. Simple as that.
Matthias one of the chefs here, formally from Scholars Hotel. He has worked under their Head Chef Michael Hunter and I guess it was time for him to spread his wings.
We arrived to a full cafe on a Sunday afternoon. Greeted by friendly staff and shown to our table. Water arrived and health juices explained. We got 3 samples, now let’s see if I can get this right, a Carrot Apple and Turmeric, Kale Spinach, Green Apple and Beetroot, Orange, Mint and Ginger.
All tasted like their ingredients. My favourite was the Carrot one.
Next we had a choice of soups, I decided on the Roast Carrot and my partner in crime choose the Thai Fish Soup.
Both equally as nice and we were both happy with our selection. Fresh flavors and homemade, natural sweetness.
Next we got an array of samples to try.
So from left to right, The Bare Burger, Carrot Parsnip, Walnut, and Goats Cheese. Served with a Parsnip Roti, Bare Slaw and Beetroot hummus. I didn’t try this one because of the goats cheese but it got a thumbs up from my guest.
Next was a Beetroot and walnut Salad. Followed by Pan Fried Salmon with leak and back bean chilli. Next was my favourite Red Curry, vegetarian and lactose free. Yummy. Finally smoked Cod served with coconut Dal and indian Pesto.
The food was of very high standard and they use local producers as much as possible.
We were then given a selection of treats to try. Don’t ask me what they were. My guest fully enjoyed them. I don’t have a sweet tooth, I tried a flapjack with my coffee and it was great.
We were also given a sample off their breakfast menu.
The Bare Food Company will do very well in my opinion. Excellent quality healthy food that won’t break the bank.
I’m really looking forward to going back with friends.
Best of luck to you all.
