Salads aren’t always green. And you know what, some of the most delicious salads I’ve had, have been far from green.
The banana flower, for example, is an amazingly fresh ingredient that has astringent notes, making it a great base for toppings like shrimp, garlic and fried eschallots. At Spice I Am, it was a lovely pile of sweet, salty, spicy, crunchy, and all the goodness inbetween. A little pricey, though, at close to $30, but an incredibly satisfying solo lunch.
Definitely inspires me to maybe create some of my own…with less detriment to my wallet perhaps? I might sound cheap, but I still am trying to justify dropping a cool $30 for lunch when Haymarket is right around the corner. Maybe a trip to Campbell street is in order?
Maybe when I feel less poor. Haha
This meal was independently paid for.
Hi What is the name of the prawn dish in the picture?
Hi! That’ the banana flower salad. =)
