Coconut Estate Eatery on O’Connell Street opened its doors just two weeks ago, and today we had the privilege of sampling some of their menu items. It was a feast for our eyes as well as our stomachs; each dish was absolutely bursting with colour, and we were blown away by the plating (you’ll see why in a second).
Brekkie Board for Two
This platter has everything you need for a satisfying breakfast; wonderfully poached eggs, crispy bacon, thick slices of Turkish bread, mushrooms, tomatoes, Sri Lankan spinach hoppers, and a mini bowl of their wellness majik if you fancy something sweet afterwards. All in all, an excellent dish!
Now, if you’d like some theatrics with your meal, then this is the dish for you. Not only does it look beautiful, but it is served in a glass cloche filled with smoke. The result when you lift the cloche is simply spectacular.
Mermaid Majik Bowl
Once again, Coconut Estate Eatery blows us away with their presentation. It’s not every day that you get to watch liquid nitrogen being poured around your breakfast; this dish is definitely one-of-a-kind. On top of that, the super nutritious blue spirulina coconut yoghurt, fresh fruit, and coconut granola will leave you feeling great afterwards.
It’s no wonder that they call this the serotonin booster; my happiness levels instantly increased upon seeing this being brought to our table. Look at all that colour! You can’t go wrong with some fresh avocado and veggie salsa.
Every Delicious American Ever
This was definitely one of our favourite dishes. Chicken and waffles is a great combination on its own, but the spicy Canadian maple syrup and refreshing rainbow salad took it to the next level. Honestly, the chicken could’ve been served as a dish on its own, but sandwich it between some waffles and pour a bit of maple syrup on top and you’ll get a meal that’s out of this world.
I did a bit of a double take when I saw this being carried to our table; was this a cafe or an art gallery? It’s safe to say that Coconut Estate Eatery takes their presentation seriously, and this dessert is a prime example. Prettiness aside, the combination of the different ice cream flavours, the fresh fruits (with honourable mention to the well-carved strawberries), and the coconut taiyaki waffles was mind-blowingly good. Oh, and take a look at the gold flakes on those taiyaki waffles.
The second dessert on their menu is a delectable cross between French toast and churros, with generous servings of chocolate bark and fresh fruit, as well as a particularly pretty cake pop. The French toast and churros hybrid was so unbelievably tasty that I’m already planning a second visit. If you’re in the mood for some truly decadent dessert, then this is the place to go.
Looking for great food with great presentation? Look no further! Coconut Estate Eatery is located on O’Connell Street in North Adelaide, and is definitely worth a visit the next time you’re in town.
