01 Oct Addict Food and Coffee, Fitzroy
Addict opened a few months ago, adding to the burgeoning number of cafes in Fitzroy. Occupying a relatively quiet spot at the corner of Gore and Johnston St, Addict has a great light-filled space and outdoors tables for people to enjoy the nice weather.
The pulled pork sandwich appeared to be very popular, but I was suffering from pulled pork fatigue and decided to go down a different route. I ordered the quinoa and chickpeas instead.
Being cooked in mushroom stock, the chickpeas and red quinoa were tasty in themselves. The quinoa was cooked nicely, being neither soggy nor hard, and the capsicum flavour from the mojo sauce, exciting crunchiness from the almonds and gooey moisture from the poached eggs made each bite a delight. The toasted sourdough appeared to have been drenched in a good olive oil, making a wonderful accompaniment to the rest of the dish.
Open 7 days from early morning to late afternoon, Addict is sure to be a hit!
