Crumble recently went through a huge overhaul – with brand new interiors, new menu and a new concept. The interiors have a rustic yet modern feel to it, steel tables and chairs with brick walls and tea lights adorning every corner.
As for the menu, it is completely different with diverse healthy options – the breakfast menu especially looks delicious, will be back to try that!
Started off with a detox juice (green apple, celery, cucumber, kale, lemon, parsley, spinach) which had a peppery kick and a hint of celery.
Being a little adventurous, I went for the sweet potato, banana, chia seeds, oats and almond milk smoothie – for some this won’t taste sweet at all and a little too healthy but is a great smoothie, something I can imagine having as a complete breakfast.
Pomelo and prawn salad. Interesting to see Crumble’s take on an Asian dish and it worked out quite well. The tangy pomelo and tender prawns drenched in a chili and lime dressing and topped with crisp toasted sesame seeds.
The balsamic roasted beetroot salad (its past rendition was my absolute favorite) is a great chunky salad with different textures and flavors, personally it does’t match up to it’s predecessor. But I did love the fact that the halloumi wasn’t too salty as well as the combination on the sweet potato and pumpkin seeds.
Crumble’s linguini uses a pumpkin cream sauce with sun dried tomatoes and arugula, not your everyday pasta nor your everyday sauce. I really liked this, an interesting interpretation of a classic creamy pasta.
Slow cooker sandwich – another modern healthy twist on a classic. Pulled chicken breast, aged cheddar with an avocado and arugula base with spicy mayo. Loved the chicken spread which was succulent and went really well with the silky avocado, the spicy mayo didn’t pack as much of a punch.
Their pizza game has vastly improved, the base is crisper and more flavorful. This is the funghi pizza topped with button and portobello mushrooms, more arugula, truffle oil and parmesan cheese…mmm delicious.
Truffle parmesan fries done right, thick fries topped with heaps of parmesan which slightly melts devoured in seconds.
Dessert was their house special – fried oreos with vanilla ice cream. Dough balls filled with oreo’s and happiness plus soft and fluffy.
A relaxing lunch well spent with good food and experimental takes on classical dishes done Crumble style! a la Crumble?
