Vegetarians, vegans and lovers of organic food - this is your place. Earth's Kitchen, placed on the corner of Pirie and Hyde Street, caught my eye when I was scouring Urbanspoon to see where to eat next. Proponents of all things organic, gluten-free and whatever-is-bad-for-you-free, the owners of Earth's Kitchen have nailed it with their delicious menu and rustic atmosphere.
Their menu isn't huge but there's enough for one to ponder over whilst waiting for a friend. Vegetarian entrees, salads and pizzas (there are meat pizzas too!) are their main offerings, as well as some on-the-counter desserts such as carrot cake and brownies - all gluten free of course.
|Arabic Hummus with organic wheat & spelt flour bread: $12.90|
Hummus. Yum. Drizzled with olive oil, it was easy to spread on the soft bread and extremely flavoursome with the smoked paprika on top. I've never seen hummus so yellow before but it tasted really good. At first I thought there wasn't enough to go around for the bread but it ended up being plenty.
|Herb Roasted Pumpkin Salad: pearl barley, lentils, baby spinach, bean sprouts & spiced yoghurt: $16.90|
|Roast Chicken & Chorizo Pizza: $21.90|
