BARE NAKED BOWLS - Top 5 Brunch Spots in Surry Hills
. Bare Naked Bowls - Surry hills, Bronte Beach, Manly & Dee Why
What initially sparked my interest with Bare Naked Bowls was that on their menu it says that “anything can be made dairy or gluten free as well as vegan friendly.” This jumped out to me as its often only select items on a menu that can be altered for special dietary requirements however knowing that I could alter any menu item to suit my dietary needs was such a refreshing feeling.
I got to look at the menu and choose what I really wanted rather then selecting the best from a few options… speaking of options - I was overwhelmed with how many different bowls and brunch choices there were.
The menu ranges from 8 different Acai bowls, 3 other smoothie bowl options if your not a huge Acai fan, 5 Breakky bowls options, 3 different superfood toast options as well as 8 superfood smoothies to choose from.
The menu is also very easy to navigate and has a key with any information you may want about your food selection - wether its a hot or cold item, if it contains nuts, dairy, gluten, refined sugar and wether or not it is vegan. This makes it very easy for people following a strict dietary requirement to order with ease and saves the awkward questions/ alterations we may face when ordering at a standard cafe.
What we ordered:
Naked Breakky Bowl (buckwheat porridge) w coconut yoghurt
Manly Acai bowl
Dragon Slam smoothie
Beetroot latte on the house-made cashew milk
The fix cold pressed orange juice
The star of this breakfast has to go to the Naked Breakky b owl, hands down this has to be the most impressive thing I’ve ordered from a cafe all year. Both of us were scraping the bowl trying to get the last spoonfuls of this creamy delicious porridge dish and have been talking about it for days since.
The Manly bowl was a classic twist on an Acai bowl but what I find most impressive about Bare Naked Bowls is that they dont add all the unnecessary "crap" to an acai bowl and just keep it as natural as it should be. They also use quality ingredients to top the bowl with like caramelised buckwheat, fresh fruit, shredded coconut, goji berrries etc instead of packaged granola and frozen fruit. So for all the other Acai snobs out there ill give it my tick of approval in saying its a premium quality Acai bowl. We modified the bowl so that it was completely gluten free and added a peanut butter drizzle to ours too! So delicious!
Overall great food, good coffee and we will definitely be coming back for more of that buckwheat porridge.
