Earth's Kitchen - A healthy lunch alternative

Earth's Kitchen is a cafe that has opened up on Pirie Street taking over the location which Ciao Ristorante previously occupied.  The philosophy is simple - fresh, local, organic (where possible) ingredients.

Mushroom pizza - $15.90

Tandoori chicken pizza

I ordered the mushroom pizza as well as the Tandoori Chicken pizza.  Thin dough with a good amount of fresh ingredients.  Sauce, mushrooms and rocket worked well together.  The only negative with this dish was that the pizza base was a little floury which left a film in my mouth as I was eating it.  The chicken was well cooked and juicy, tandoori flavours could have been a little stronger with slightly more spice (personal preference). 

Other orders on the day included the following (of which I got to try some of each!). My apologies if I have used the incorrect names for the dishes, as I forgot to take a shot of the menu.

Tomato Pizza
Mexican Salad

Beetroot Salad
The tomato pizza was nice, with plenty of fresh, juicy tomatoes on top. Some fresh herbs balanced well with the acidity of the tomato and sauce. The Mexican salad was really nice I thought. The beans were nice, a good hint of lime and I loved the creaminess of the sour cream. The beetroot salad was probably my least favorite - I liked the flavors, with some great sweetness from the beetroot, but it was definitely a mound of beetroot, with not much else to help out. There were a few cashews and some cheese, but they were very sparse. The sourdough was nice, but it only lasted so long! It just got too much, and that was the feedback from the actual order-er of the dish also.

Overall, it's a nice setting and nice food. I would return to have the Mexican salad again, and their coffee was nice too. They had a large breakfast menu that I'd like to also try.  For those that ever went to Ciao, it still feels like Ciao a little, same seats and tables, and that same wood oven smell!
