Eating healthy at Wilde & Co.
Known for their organic, raw and ethical food, Wilde & Co embodies all the nutritional ideas I wish to live by day to day, however as a food blogger I often find myself at odds. I took this invitation because I wanted to give my body a rest, and treat myself to some wholesome food , because it deserves it!
The rhubarb was the highlight I expected to be very tart but it was quite sweet and subtle and went VERY well with the coconut. The granola was toasted but not overly, just enough crunch but had the rawness preserves. The dish was truly on point.
Avocado on toast
The perfect millennial meal. Very flavourful impression: very earthy, and spicy - kind of like a ginger spice. Very subtle sesame taste, and I’ll be honest I expected more. The quinoa toast was very delicate and flakey, in a good way. I think I would have liked to see more avocado.
The Rainbow Salad
When someone describes a dish as raw, I admit I feel a bit iffy trying it - sometimes the integrity of the dish can change in a matter of minutes, especially after taking photos for 10 minutes. This dish was quite savoury, I think it was the almonds. The nutty flavour combined with the dressing gave it a subtle umami. Definitely my favourite of the day.
Wilde Nourish Bowl
Didn’t come in a bowl at all! I could have easily mistaken it as a big breakfast. Interacting with this dish more, I slowly realised that the food was meant to be mixed. The combination of rich mushrooms, pickled garlic, spiced avocado and the cured veggies really brought it altogether.
Subtle and slightly spicy.
A bit of the sweet side but not too sweet for me.
Service: the owner, May, is the absolute sweetest. She looked after me so well and was very helpful in deciding.
Cleanliness and Hygiene: the cafe is very clean and tidy, the restrooms are off the premise and located underground.
Accessibility: very easy to get to by bus, a short walk from Oxford Street or from Woolloomooloo.
Quality compared to similar cafes in the area: the ingredients used at this cafe seems to be quite good, as like most cafes in the area.
Price: high price point, however it’s price is for the quality.
Do I recommend? Yes, good for health and allergy conscious.
