Week beginning January 5th - Happy New Year

Decorations down and ready for a new prosperous year of opportunities. This time of the year can often be a drag, short days, cold weather and a influx of Debbie Downers. We plan to remedy the winter vibes with our bright menu filled with some vintage delights and mixed with some new favourites. 

The return of chicken adobo graces our lunchtime display, our oldest salad is a twist on the national Filipino dish, adobo being the Spanish word for marinade. Made with a moreish mixture of soy, garlic, bay, peppercorns, sugar and vinegar. 

This is also the time of year blood oranges come into their peak, making an appearance in December, the bleeding redness doesn't appear until January which means they are ripe. The kitchen will be incorporating blood oranges with baked sweet soy cashew nuts, roasted beetroot and tarragon making this the ultimate vegan and gluten-free winter salad. 

Lastly winter is Jerusalem artichoke season, a knobbly tuber that isn't related to artichokes. They are a species of sunflower native to North America. Their flavour is mildly sweet, nutty and earthy can be eaten raw or cooked like a potato. This week we will be roasting the Jerusalem artichokes until golden and caramelised, served with our very own peanut satay dressing. 

Come welcome the start of another year with the team at Kaffeine.
