My lovely lunch date and I had both been dying to try this place out ever since it opened last month, and Friday was the day! The Greenhouse is a striking restaurant that is all about recycling, re-using, and gardening. The entire outside of the building is covered in strawberry plants and almost everything inside, from the plastic crates used to make the floor, to the recycled jars used for serving dessert, is experiencing a new lease on life filled with purpose and thrifty love.
Foreground: spicy prawn, tofu, duck egg noodles
Background: skirt steak, green mango, cashew & fragrant herb salad
In the glass: home made organic iced tea
The food was just divine - perfectly sized portions of amazingly fresh produce served on colourfully inviting plates. Even though our lunch hour was already up, we couldn't resist playing truant so that we could degust a little dessert.
My watermelon jelly was delicious and refreshing...

... But my lovely date's heaven-in-a-jar was just earth moving. Er. Mer. Gerd.

If only lunch could last forever!
