Is faux meat the answer?

Wednesday, September 1st, 2010

We frequently get asked why we don’t serve eggs or bacon but we do also get the occasional question “Why don’t you serve mock burgers and fries?

Now that is a question that can be debated at length, but ultimately it does not work in with what we want to be doing at the moment. We know that it works very successfully in many places around the world and we would be the first to acknowledge that there is a time and place for everything.

We don’t serve mock meat for our own reasons below:

- it is a heavily processed food

- some mock meat contains egg and dairy anyway

- heavily processed soy is incredibly bad for you

- it is essentially fast food

Mock meat does not fit in with our ethos so we like to stick to meals that were never intended to have meat in the first place.

We use grains, veggies, fruit, beans and legumes i.e. eliminating as much as possible that has been processed and instead turning to a purer way of eating. For that reason we don’t have any microwaves and use the gas stove only.

Monk Bodhi Dharma Breakfast Degustation

Zen Brownies

Tuesday, August 3rd, 2010

The good old humble brownie. In the distant past only known in America and Canada, is now a very popular treat in Australia. It is especially enticing when coupled with a beautifully handcrafted coffee using the customer’s choice of brewing method. We didn’t need to think long in order to mix two very popular beans/seeds (coffee and cocoa) to create our Zen brownie. Each brownie contains approximately a double ristretto of the weekly coffee which means that our customers walk out feeling very much alive!

To make us feel better, our brownies are fully vegan!

See photos below of 35 Ethiopian Yirgacheffe SMS espressos in one measuring cup ready to be used for our batch of brownies… any volunteers to try sculling that?
