Eating Out: Charlie's Raw Squeeze Greenslopes

After my happy lunch from Charlie's in Everton Park, I had the opportunity to pay a visit to their Greenslopes store. Charlie's Raw Squeeze in Greenslopes has an indoor area with seating, as opposed to the takeaway only situation at the main fruit shop. I visited on a Friday at lunch time, and there was quite a long wait for my food to come out. I ended up needing to get some of it to go because I ran out of time to finish. Still, it was yummy.

I had been to bikram yoga earlier that morning, so I was feeling like something refreshing. I tried the Lean Green Cleansing Machine Juice ($7 for large), which had kale, cucumber, celery, apple, lemon and spinach. It was really nice. A little bit sweet but with a satisfying savoury undertone.

I ordered a Strawberry Bliss Nice Cream (strawberries, banana and coconut water) with fresh berries ($12), and this towering creation was brought out before me. I didn't realise that it had a hard chocolate shell drizzled all over it, and also on the bottom of the bowl. Unfortunately I am pretty sure this contains coconut oil, but I was able to enjoy a little bit of it. Next time I would ask for none at the bottom and just a squeeze over the top. They didn't skimp on the fresh berries either - gorgeous fresh strawberries, rasberries and blackberries.

Tragically the only cinnamon buns they had this time had crazy toppings on, no plain ones. So I got a couple of christmas Cloverly Cupcakes (2 for $10 or $6 each) to take home. I got the trifle (vanilla cupcake stuffed with custard and jelly with a brandy buttercream) and Gingerbread. I was a bit sad about the trifle one, there was the tiniest bit of custard and jelly in it and the icing mostly tasted super sweet. But the gingerbread one was delicious! I love gingerbread. The icing on the trifle one got a bit smooshed on the way home.

Despite the wait for my food, I was pretty happy again with the great food on offer. The salads in the case looked amazing as well.
