Happy New Year! Hope everyone has stuffed themselves silly with food and had an amazing festive season. Now that the holidays are over, it’s back to work, back to the gym and time to start a new diet. With #newyearnewme trending, how about a new café to fuel your healthy diet.
Pearth has just opened their doors for about a week, offering West Leedy a range of smoothie bowls and wholesome salads. What I like about this place is that they don’t serve food for just one particular diet. Carnivores can add a little bacon to their plate, and there’s something for everyone whether you’re gluten intolerant, vegan, vego or a meat eater.
Sourced from Fiori, Pearth serves organic coffee beans with a large range of milks; from full cream to soy, almond, coconut or rice. Black coffee is my go to, so I decided to try the Cold Drip Coffee ($5) served with tonic water it added a bit of sweetness and was light and refreshing, great in this heat.
My mum loves everything with avocado, so the Sourdough with Avocado, Hummus, Lemon and Pumpkin Seeds ($12) and added poached egg ($3) was the 'pearth-fect' option for her. Let me just say the hummus is delicious!
If you've been to The Raw Kitchen and tried their zucchini pasta, you'd find that the Zucchini Pesto Salad ($11) is just as yum. This was one of the salads available in the display fridge, so I'm not too sure if it's available all the time.
Although a little pricey, their smoothie bowls are definitely aesthetically pleasing. My sister went for the Green Smoothie Bowl ($17.5) a mixture of matcha, leafy greens, avocado, banana and almond milk, topped with house-made granola and a side of fruit. This green bowl didn't have a strong matcha flavour but had a very good thick consistency.
For a more filling option, go for the Macro Bowl ($18.5), brown rice, seasonal vegetables, avocado, hummus, dukkah and homemade dressing with an added poached egg ($3). Again a generous side of that delicious hummus, and a colourful array of vegetables which are nicely seasoned.
It's nice to find another cafe to add to the list of growing healthy and organic options in Perth. Although Pearth is a little on the expensive side, it can be justified in the freshness and quality of ingredients. Seating is also limited, so expect a wait to dine in or just get your salad to go.
