Market on Malvern
Dr Anthony Yeoung knows a thing or two about health and nutrition – he has two decades’ experience and a masters in clinical nutrition. First and foremost? Food is medicine.
At Market on Malvern he’s created not just a cafe, but an experience. Here, you can move from massage to meal; go from yoga to yoghurt over gluten-free red velvet pancakes; and from consultation to colourful coffee. It’s a clinic and cafe cleverly combined.
On one side, simple wood, white walls and greenery speak to the healthy cafe vibe. Over the counter, the clinical element is more evident, with vitamins neatly lining the shelves. It’s still homey and relaxed, with a cosy fireplace and magazines to read while you drink your broth or latte.
Former Nobu chef David Selex and a team of dieticians and naturopaths run the five-category menu. Dishes are designed to aid sleep, digestion, immunity, energy and stress. Signatures include caramelised sweet potato with avocado- and hemp-protein-hummus with bean and cabbage slaw or reishi and shiitake mushroom pho. Team them with a beetroot cacao latte or a blue majik (spirulina algae extract) latte for something different.
Allergy sufferers will be at ease with the clearly labelled menu. It’s vegan, FODMAPs, paleo and gluten-free friendly. And dog friendly – there’s a special menu for your four-legged mates.
