The Crux & Co just lies opposite The Kettle Black. They present balanced dishes inspired by Korean savoury flavours.
Mocha was towards above average. I like my mocha not overly sweet but still able to taste the coffee aroma. They met it. J again is on a health street, so he ordered the green cold pressed juice. No idea what else was inside. But I think these are not house made.
I tried their Ahi poke bowl and it was very fresh. It reminds me of a bibimbab. The ingredients of tuna, greens and cabbage went so well together. I didn’t need to get the truffled egg but it was nice to taste what it was like. The dish honestly didn’t need the truffle eggs to accompany the poke bowl.
J tried smashed avo with beetroot hummus, pickled watermelon, smoked almonds and rockette salad. This one was refreshing. The pickled watermelon was funky, it wasn’t sweet, a little salty, but we didn’t mind it.
Everything was fresh from crux and co so we will come back again knowing we would get the healthy and fresh food.
Have tried their eclair before and they taste pretty good, esp their green tea flavour! If I were to pick a negative it would be the size it quite small for its price. Would like to try their macaroons on the next visit. They make their own croissants so would suggest you try them fresh in the morning!
