Eating Out: Charlie's Raw Squeeze at Everton Park

Before I go on with the regular post, I will be taking a short blogging break while I am away for OzComicCon Perth and Adelaide over the next two weekends. I'll be working at both of them, and will be having a bit of time to explore Perth and Adelaide during the week between them. I have lots of exciting food places starred on my Google maps, and I look forward to sharing my adventures when I get back. :)

OK, on with the post!

I know, I know... another Charlie's Raw Squeeze post. You are probably sick of them. But I haven't actually been back to Charlie's since this last visit (which was about five weeks ago), so there will be a lot more variety in my upcoming Eating Out posts! Not that there is anything wrong with Charlie's! I just haven't had the opportunity to get back there, but have had opportunities to eat at other very yummy places instead.

I loved the Superfood Acai Smoothie I had from Charlie's last time, so I decided to try out the Superfood Acai Bowl ($16 large), which has acai, bananas, cocoa, goji berries and coconut water. It did not disappoint, it was very yum! It is a bit squashed here, because they forgot I wanted it takeaway again and had to smoosh a lid on. I definitely recommend this bowl (or smoothie).

The Tropical Sunrise Smoothie ($10 for large) was a really refreshing drink. It has mango, pineapple, strawberry, mint and coconut water. The pineapple was not too overpowering, and the mint was just perfect.

The main reason I went to Charlie's that day was because I wanted to try their new Rainbow Salad ($10.95). Tragically, when I got there, there were none! But there was a bit of a wait for my smoothie and bowl, and by the time I got them they had brought out new salads! So I bought one. It has smoked tofu, avocado, a kale and cabbage salad and beetroot cream cheese (similar ingredients to their rainbow salad wraps). I have to say that this one works better as a wrap for me, the salad was nice, but it just was missing something. The falafel black bean kale salad remains my favourite.

I also picked up a Cloverly Sticky Date Cupcake, which is a bit squished from being put into a too shallow box. This was a good cupcake. I loved the date cake on the base, the icing was not too sweet (as they normally are), and the caramel drizzle on top was a nice finish.

Possum


It's been a while since I've featured a photo of the handsomest boy Possum, who was my family cat for nearly twenty years. Sadly we had to say goodbye to Possum a couple of years ago. We miss him. I am sure you all agree that he was super handsome.

  2. I am not sick of hearing of this place. I only wish I could try it out as it sounds like the type of place I would enjoy. We don't really have anything like that near where I live. The salad looks really good! The cupcake even better.
    Cute kitty.

    1. I haven't been for ages, but I am pretty excited as they have just announced they are opening up a bunch of new stores including one closer to my place. :D
