Tucked away in the middle of Killiney Road is a delightfully cosy place to tuck into really yummy organic meals and grab your organic products.
Step through the doors of Real Food and you are greeted with a lovely decorated space, organized into different sitting and dining spaces, a section for produce, magazine racks and a large shelf of books for diners to enjoy.
Fried or Steam Dumplings (8pcs) $7.
We started off with these delicious hot & crispy morsels of their signature Fried Dumplings. It was so good we couldn’t stop popping it into mouths even though it was piping hot. Hard to believe that vegetarian dumplings can taste so good, even better than most meat dumplings!
Next came the pastas.
Organic Mushroom Aglio Olio $7.80.
This is easily one of the best pastas I have eaten so far on the island. The al dente was just right, tossed in generous amounts of garlic and oil, with luscious juicy slices of organic mushrooms. You can also ask for chilli to be added (I did!) to kick it up a notch. One more thing, keep your taste buds opened for the underlying musky taste of oregano. Mmmm…. A steal at this price.
Genovese Pesto Pasta $9.80
Be prepared for a different and lighter taste of this homemade organic pesto if you are used to store bought ones. This is much more on the healthy “green” taste and texture instead of the usual over salted and over creamy versions. Nicely sized portion to keep you going for couple of hours.
One thing to be mindful of is that food is prepared at point of ordering which means it will not be as fast as regular restaurants. So do plan ahead when dining here, so that you can enjoy the experience instead of feeling frustrated if you are in a rush. Also you might leave with smell of food clinging onto your hair and clothes due (ladies, bring some scented spray with you if are headed back to work or a date afterward).
I will come back again to try the wraps and other rice dishes (which we spotted others eating but no more space to try),
