Post 213 Eats: Urban Projuice Albert Park
Tucked into an unassuming front in Albert Part, Urban Projuice is all about health and wellbeing. And they do that through offering whole foods. Whole foods that taste pretty damn good too. The place is built on the ideas of locally grown, seasonal, fair-trade, and organic and they are completely meat-free. Plus of course they cater for the gluten free, vegan, garlic and onion avoiders among the group.
Their extensive food menu opens with smoothie bowls. The snickers bowl is the stuff of chocolate dreams – cacao powder, peanut butter, banana, soy milk, dates, and fruits and nuts. You can keep the sweet train going with the paleo granola, porridge made with steel cut oats, or even a stack of buckwheat vanilla pancakes. If you’re a savoury person, don’t panic, you’re well catered for.
The Nourish Up is a bowl of all the good stuff. Sweet potato, kale, spinach, broccoli, buckwheat, greens, and eggs or tofu. Or the kale and olive bruschetta is a delicious option of kale, tomatoes, and capsicum served on toast with olive tapenade and basil pesto. The lunch menu sees the likes of tempeh burgers, spring rolls, burrito bowls, and chunky chips for a carb fix.
The cold pressed juices and smoothie list is just as long. From a lean green juice of apple, cucumber, kale, celery, chlorophyll, lemon, and spinach, all the way up to a cacao kapow smoothie of cacao powder, banana, dates, and almond milk.
It’s one of those places where you want to go for breakfast, stay for morning tea, and finish with lunch.
