OnePlate is taking over the suburbs with its newest member, Leaf & Vine café, Ringwood.
Tucked away in a leafy side street in Ringwood, Leaf & Vine is fast set to become one of Melbourne’s hidden treasures.
They have nominated their best-selling ‘Chicken, Freekeh and Quinoa Salad’ as the OnePlate menu item.
“We wanted to be a café that looks at the broader community,” said Pete, owner of Leaf & Vine, “we want to give back.”
And give back they do. Leaf & Vine also supports locally grown Victorian produce, Thank You as well as Choose Wisely.
“It’s no drama to give back,” he said “And OnePlate is such an easy thing to hitch our wagon to.”
Designed by Pete, who is also a chef, the Chicken Salad was introduced to the menu as a temporary ‘special’ two years ago. It was such an instant hit that, two-years on, it is now a permanent fixture.
The perfect light lunch, the Chicken Salad has a base of freekeh, quinoa and green leaves topped with sumptuous chicken tenderloins. Mixed in is a generous helping of seasonal dried fruits (sultanas, green raisins, goji berries and currents) and seeds. Add a dash of vinaigrette, a swirl of yoghurt and a splash of pea dust – that’s right, pea dust – and you have an instant winner!
Drop in and try the Salad of the season.
