Banana Blossom Salads are healthy, flavoursome and delicous
Banana Blossom asian salad "Tokyo Classic ' with chicken
Banana Blossom is situated in Market Lane, Manly. One day I wandered past this small eatery which had recently appeared on the Manly scene to find it full of people waiting to be served lunch. It did not take long to find out why Banana Blossom was so popular.
This small eatery serves delicious salads with a asian flavour that are fresh, nutritious and very tasty. They are made in front of you with all fresh ingredients, as well as little extras such as sliced pear, pine nuts and even pomegranate seeds.The salads can be vegetarian with just vegetables or tofu. Chicken is very popular as well .Most have crispy noodles that add a lovely crunch to each bite. They are very economical, all selling for thirteen dollars. See menu
My favourite salads are Buddha's Delight with tofu and "Tokyo Classic"with tofu or chicken. The taste is fresh with the delicate taste of fruit and nuts that are lightly mixed in with the salad. The staff are efficient and friendly and the salads can be eaten in the cafe or taken away.
There are two Banana Blossom asian salads cafes, the second in Bungan Street, Mona Vale.There is a Facebook page which is listed below for more information. Banana Blossom Asian Salads Manly is is a gem, so join the crowd of many locals who have made it a favourite. You won't be disappointed!
