Fed Up Project is a cute little cafe in South Melbourne that served up wholesome food that is sourced locally. We visited on a Weekday for some brunch to check out some of of their dishes and find the proof that you dishes can be both for you and taste delicious!
To start I ordered a ‘Golden latte’ which was made with coconut milk and made with Tumeric, Cinnamon, Ginger, Honey and Pepper. This was a mild flavoured but warming drink – perfect for these last few days when Melbourne has been shaking the last of the winter chill out of it’s system!
The second drink we ordered was ‘The Cleanse’ one of of their fresh juices. It came with Watermelon, Carrot, Lemon, Celery, Orange, and was garnished with a little more celery, just to remind you how healthy you were being! The watermelon and orange provided a nice sweetness to the juice and it was a the perfect pairing to our meals!
For food, the first dish we ordered was one of their speciality poke bowls. The Poke trend is spreading like wildfire across melbourne and this was one of the freshest that i’ve had! It comes on your choice of base and we chose the ancient grains. It was then topped with your protein of choice which was chicken for us, and then garnished with corn, shredded nori, carrot slivers, radish slivers, cucumber, pumpkin and prawn crackers. It was delicious, the chicken was in a flavour sauce that i couldn’t quite put my finger on and all the other elements mixed together in a flurry of textures and flavours.
The second dish we ordered probably wouldn’t make it onto the ‘healthy’ list, but it sounded too delicious to pass up! It was the S’mores French Toast and came with Chocolate Ganache, Homemade Marshmallows, Banana, Strawberries, Maple, Vanilla Ice Cream, Raspberry Coulis, Biscuit Crumb, Maple and Banana Chips. This was a decadent dish and I was glad that we shared the dish! It was not an overly sweet french toast which I liked but there was still enough chocolate ganache and ice cream to keep it nice and sweet!
To finish, we shared one of their freshly baked blueberry and choc chip muffins. The muffin was deliciously soft and the pop of the tart blueberry contrasted well with the rich and sweet chocolate chips.
Overall, this was an excellent dining experience. The venue had a nice buzz to it, and it was sunny and full of light. I loved the plant based decor, it made you feel like you were dining outside. Tom and Sarah were so lovely and made you feel welcome. If you work in the area, it’s well worth a try for your next lunch, or perhaps for an afternoon pick-me-up!
