I was in the mood for a carby creamy salad, so went to Plain Vanilla and got a mix of 2 salads in small size (petite is $6, small is $12, large is $18). One of them had orrechiette and carrots. The other had kale, red rice, pumpkin, edamame, pine nuts, pistachios, feta cheese and an avocado dressing. Both were creamy and delicious, the kale salad more so.

Although they are more well known for their cupcakes, I prefer their tarts. Hidden beneath this plain looking chocolate tart reveals a thick gooey layer of salted caramel that gives the sweetness a good balance.

I’ve been posting lots of Plain Vanilla salads lately, because I like them a lot. This was pasta, aubergine and anchovies, and roasted cauliflower and pomegranate. The highlight of the first were the juicy, well-cooked aubergines. In the second, I liked the cauliflower a lot – it was cut into small pieces, with some parts resembling cauliflower rice, but mostly still in small florets with a nice tender bite. There were sautéed onions and chopped nuts too.

A small salad consists of two out of three possible options, which rotate on a daily basis. I had an artichoke french bean pasta salad, and a lettuce microgreens and egg salad. The former was predominantly conchiglie pasta and soft sweet onions, with a single artichoke and several french beans. The latter was a very "green" tasting salad of slightly bitter salad vegetables, edamame and half a hard boiled egg. Not one of my favourite combinations of salads amongst those I've had from Plain Vanilla, but stil good for a simple lunch.

The salads are pricey but I like them a lot! This was a mix of kale romaine caesar and couscous tomato aubergine. The kale salad had some croutons as well. Both were flavourful and tasty.

Plain Vanilla offers a variety of savoury tarts. I chose pumpkin, pine nut and sage as I saw good reviews of it online. It's more of a pie or quiche, 4" in diameter, baked in a thick crust with an egg custard filling. I was surprised that the tart was served cold. The crust was too thick and hard and the egg custard filling was extremely jelak and gave me a headache. The only part of this I enjoyed was the pumpkin layer in the filling. Overall didn't really like the tart much.

The salad fared much better. It was a mix of cous cous, brown rice, cauliflower, chickpeas, pine nuts and raisins, and was very tasty, though I would have appreciated more veg and less grains.
