267 Glenferrie Rd, Malvern (map)
Was shopping in Glenferrie Road, Malvern, on Saturday morning - not my usual 'hood, but I was waiting for friend A to wake up after his big night out. I was feeling pretty tender myself, in need of healthy goodness to compensate for the moderate trashiness of the night before. Walked past a nice looking cafe called Power Pantry whose sign had a subtitle that caught my eye: "Low fat, low GI, high flavour power foods". Healthy AND flavoursome? Excellent!
I got the interesting-sounding Egyptian eggs: Grampians eggs dry fried with dukkah and served in toasted Turkish bread with PP's own tomato and mustard relish, and Yarra Valley wilted spinach. And sure enough, as well as being pretty healthy, they were really tasty - I even ended up buying a jar of the relish!
On a little postcard extolling the virtues of Power Pantry was the following quote from Pierce Cody, Executive Chairman of Macro Wholefoods Market: "Macro initially considered Power Pantry a competitor. Not only did that prove to be correct, but they are so good they ended up being a supplier. There can be no greater compliment." :-)
