Monk Bodhi Dharma

Unfortunately I have been terribly lax on my restaurant reviewing. All the other foodie bloggers out there are way ahead of my game with daily posts and weekly reviews...but I, woeful as I have been mischievously indulgent, worrying over broken hearts and school assignments!

On the subject of indulgent however (see that lovely link) I did head on down to a little cafe called Monk Bodhi Dharma last week and was pleasantly surprised. It's tucked away nicely in a little alley to give you the impression that no one knows about it. But do not be deceived! It's packed with the coolest most indie fashionsitas in their chic yet creative clothing. Despite the fact that this sort get on my nerves a little bit (only because I know that I will NEVER be as 'cool' as them) they do have very good taste in food.

To put it was amazing. Very rarely do I go to a place for something to eat and leave thinking 'well that was a very well done meal!" Usually I spend the next week compiling lists of ways they could have perfected their dishes. This time though I had no need for lists (and what a relief this was.) The food was great. The tea was amazing (They make their own chai from scratch and dry roast all the spices to bring out the flavour...genius!)

I didn't have a coffee because I was so caught up on the amazing chai, but I have heard good things. The menu is super creative and has a lot of vegetarian and vegan options (which was a relief because I could eat there with my sister.)

It's really just a great place. Super funky...and the staff are gorgeous (I would happily marry any of the boys who work there.) So I give it a 10 out of 10. Check it out, but go early if you want a seat!
