Egg of the Universe - Rozelle, Sydney
After starting hot yoga classes a few years ago, I've become a regular; I love the mix of the crazy sweaty and hard workout, plus mindfulness and meditation. Egg of the Universe is a great little yoga studio with a whole foods cafe attached.
There's a gorgeous courtyard out the back with plenty of shaded seating. Perfect spot to grab a post-yoga bite, or in my case, drop in after a Saturday morning venture at the Orange Grove markets.
Coconut and mango smoothie
Served in a young coconut, this smoothie was so light and refreshing. Fresh mango blended with young coconut water and flesh. Would love to recreate this at home if hacking opening young coconuts wasn't such a pain in the ass.
Roasted spiced carrots, sweet potato and fennel with two organic poached eggs, spring sprout salad, green aioli and EOTU dukkah. This salad is the perfect mix of everything; it's all fresh produce, healthy, flavoursome and filling.
Sweet potato and buckwheat pancake
Activated organic buckwheat and sweet potato pancake with poached pear and berries, served with banana, vanilla cashew cream and maple syrup.
The pancake itself is quite thick and dense. It was similar to banana bread, but quite dry - it could have definitely used more of the delicious vanilla cashew cream and poached fruit to counter this.
Overall, Egg of the Universe has a delicious, wholesome menu with a fantastic courtyard space to enjoy your meal. The menu is a bit pricier than expected, which is the only downfall.
