Go to the Concrete Jungle for breakfast

This would have to be the most instagramable ( not sure if that’s actually a word) place to eat in Sydney.

Concrete Jungle in Kensington Street Precinct off Broadway and near the Central Square is a lovely place for breakfast. We arrived at 9am – bloody early for a wet long weekend – but when we left at 10.30 the line was long.

Opened in April 2017, the cafe transported the health-food ethos of Bondi to Chippendale.

The kitchen, headed by ex-Harry’s Bondi chef Bryan O’Callaghan, cures, dries and smokes its salmon in-house and makes tofu out of almond milk. There is a dairy-free bircher muesli with figs, pomegranate and grapes.

I had the ” yum” dragon fruit chia pudding our friend Colleen the dish of the day the Nourish Bowl with beetroot hummus, quinoa, roasted sweet potato and tahini dressing Anon, however, was a little underwhelmed by his Salmon dish.

The brightly lit, minimalist space is the work of Guru Projects (Fish Bowl, Toby’s Estate) and Mrad encourages local artists to apply to hang their work on the feature wall.

  1. “Underwhelmed” is perhaps a little too harsh. In fairness, I was very hungry that morning as I have been cutting right back on food (and no booze) since 1st June. So my salmon was a delightful light breakfast, but I could have done with habit ore substance for the stomach. That said, it was very good for me !.

    Love the ambience of this place. Perhaps the music could be down a tad …… all in all, a great place to go for some health food.

    And yes, Colleen definitely had the prize dish of the day !

  2. My ‘nourish bowl’ was delicious and in addition to looking great, I did feel virtuous all day…until the wine…I think that would be the go to dish – good coffee too, I’ll be back!
