Eating to Live on the Outside: Magic Apple
I’m excited! This week Eating to Live on the Outside takes a long “trip” all the way to Australia. I’m “off” to Magic Apple, a vegetarian restaurant from the land down under touting good wholesome food. So, how does it stack up? Its okay. Here’s a quick list of stuff that caught my eye.
- Iron rich parsley, bourghal, Q’s, tomatoes, springys, black pepper, lemon juice and garlic; I have no idea what “Q’s” or “springys” are, but it still looks good. I’ve had Tabouleh before. I like it.
Tamari/Ginger Rice Salad
- Brown rice, soy, roasted peanuts and sesames, ginger, red caps, currants and springys; I can deal with the rice, but I can’t figure out what “red caps” are.
Spinach & Tofu Salad
- Silver beet, soy-marinated tofu, dribbled with toasted sesame seed oil and baked soy-marinated sunflower seeds; I can handle the oil. Beets are always a major plus.
Roasted and Greens Salad
- Roasted carrot, pumpkin, beetroot tossed in garlic, sea salt, black pepper and cumin seeds mixed with English spinach, wild rocket, cauliflower and snow peas; if you drop the salt, this is one is pretty impressive. Tons of veggies! But I have no idea what “wild rocket” is.
- Capsys, zucchinis, tomatoes, cucumber, red onion in olive oil, cayenne and garlic; not bad, hopefully a “capsys” is something good.
First let me say this. If there are any Aussies out there, please help me out with the translations, my head is spinning. As for what I’d order. I like the Roasted and Greens Salad, just too much good stuff for me to pass up, but what about you? What do you like? Do you speak Australian?
