Walk into Shakahari and you are transported to a different place. I came here with my friend during the weekdays, lunch time. The outdoor garden setting was relaxing and quiet, great for a catch up. Avoid the busy times during Sat and Sun dinner as service can be slow.
We had the Avocado magic Entree $14.50 (Vegan, No Dairy and Gluten free)
Yummy! It consisted of ripe avocados and red capsicums fried in rice batter. A wonderful combination of flavors, with sesame coriander puree at the bottom. Just heaven!
It came with a five grain mixed rice, cooked in perfection. There was salad and bok choy accompanying the rice.
I love having wholegrains, we don't eat much of it outside. Instead of the usual refined white rice, I'm glad to be healthy while eating out.
This bowl came with braised turnip, ginkgo nuts, spicy tofu and braised seitan. It takes me back to Asia, very asian influenced. No strong sauces like soy sauce, a gentle yet subtle dish.
I'll be back again!
