Over the past few years, Sydney has become a more exciting and important food city than ever before, with a plethora of healthy hotspots landing on our shores. The newest kid on the block is raw plant-based restaurant The Plant Gallery, which has set up shop in Bondi.
Founded on the philosophy of ‘healthy eating as an art form’, The Plant Gallery is reinventing the way raw, vegan food is seen and enjoyed, by combining sophisticated presentation with a fusion of flavours, while also focusing on a zero waste policy and a carbon neutral ethos.
Spearheaded by dynamic duo David Ortega and Juan Carlos, The Plant Gallery represents a change in perspective of what healthy eating really means, serving up tasty, raw, nutritious food free from gluten, refined sugars and animal products.
A culinary trailblazer, who has worked in kitchens around the world, Carlos is the creative mastermind behind the kitchen. Pairing his Peruvian heritage with his unparalleled knowledge and personal love of raw veganism, he creates dishes that are not only incredibly rich in nutrients, but also look and taste amazing.
Think salads loaded with ultra-fresh veggies, light dressings, and nut cheeses, as well as a South American-inspired dishes and delectable breakfast options, which are guaranteed to tantalise your taste buds. Plus, everything on the carefully curated seasonal menu is prepared at less than 48°C in order to retain vital nutrients and living enzymes required to digest food, repair cellular damage and assist in healthy cell renewal.
And yes, as the name suggests, the light-filled space will also host regular art exhibitions, showcasing local artists whose works will be available for purchase.
