NOTE: Seasonal / Breakfast Items May Contain Uncontaminated Oats
Going out with my friend Steph is always a fun experience. Not only is Steph a vegan, but other intolerances including FODMAPS pose issues as well.
This means that finding a place that can safely cater to us both, can be challenging. However, during our city trip in which we stopped off at Raw Trader, we decided to try out SuperCharger in the Melbourne Emporium.
Supercharger promotes their vegan power food as entirely gluten free, low GI, high protein and made with love. Since you can pick and choose ingredients as well as indulge in their pre-determined menu items, it seemed like a good place to get allergy friendly food.
Rather than compiling my own dish, I decided to go with their GoAllDay bowl. This was part of their SuperOneBowl range for $12.90. The four options in this category include “a perfect selection of 7 superfoods in one bowl”. Steph customised a bowl, to ensure it was safe for the dietary requirement needs.
The GoAllDay bowl definitely had a lot going on, however, it never felt overpowering. They managed to find the harmony between each ingredient and pull it all together in an eclectic healthy mix. My favourite component of the dish was probably the Chickpea Masala. It inspired me to create my own recipe so I can relive those flavours at home. The Coconut Yoghurt Raita was probably my least favourite component, only due to how overpowering the coconut flavour is. I like coconut but am not a massive fan of it all the time. The meals were nothing spectacular, however, they had strong well-balanced flavours.
It is a breeze to put together the DIY Bowls. Unfortunately, in Steph’s bowl, we thought the chosen ingredients didn’t work well together. More than likely this was because so many things needed to be omitted to ensure it catered to the restrictions. I think everyone should be reminded that when choosing your own meal you may have bland combinations. Thankfully while the combinations didn’t work well together, the food itself was decent.
While ordering your savoury food, don’t forget to check out their fridge section. In the fridge, there is a range of gluten free vegan desserts.
While I enjoyed the food, when in the Emporium i’d probably cross the food court to Spudbar instead. I am a big fan of potato. If you want something lighter there is also Thr1ve. However, with four locations serving up healthy vegan options Supercharger are definitely convenient and mildly satisfying.
