We all have that friend that has chosen to go vegan or paleo at the moment which can make it difficult when deciding on where to have lunch... Well, Street Organics in Malvern could be the answer. I had received some more vouchers from Zomato which included Street Organics. They cater for those on paleo, vegan, FODMAP and/or gluten-free diets. Now this may not be relevant to you... but the food is really delightful so everyone is happy! They also have some meat dishes for those that are feeling carnivorous. Afterwards, you can browse products to take home and make your own healthy, organic meals. They also do raw vegan high teas ($69 per person) upstairs, which is fun and healthy at the same time!

WHAT WE ATE...
The menu has a range of meals that are very affordable. I decided to have the ‘Vegan curry served with brown rice ($14.50)’. It was sort of like a vegan risotto minus the calories. The brown rice was perfectly cooked and it tasted yummy and was very filling. The vibrant basil leaves added some greenery and zing.
My dining companion opted for the ‘Tuna wrap with hommus and beetroot, carrot and salad leaves ($10.95)’. The wrap was jam-packed full of fresh and flavoursome ingredients. The hommus and soy mayonnaise united the contents of the wrap wonderfully.
We also ordered this delicious blueberry cake. It was so moist and scrumptious!
WHAT WE DRANK...
I picked the ‘Iced Chocolate – ice, coconut milk ice cream, cacao, rapadura sugar and your choice of milk, topped with vegan dark chocolate shards ($9.50)’. I chose regular milk. This was perfect for me as it wasn’t too sweet and sickly. It tasted like a lamington due to the coconut ice cream which was a fantastic alternative to regular iced chocolates.
SERVICE...Seating inside is limited so we sat outside in the sunshine which was lovely. We received great service at Street Organics.
