I’ve heard quite a bit of buzz about the recently opened Supercharger in the new Myer Emporium building, enough to make it zoom right to the top of my gotta-try-it list. I finally got a chance to visit today and wowww where do I begin. Maybe I should begin with the usual thing that happens when I’m anywhere near Myer. I get lost so then I have to hunt for those info touch screen things and curse under my breath when they’re not located right near escalators.
Okay, so I found Supercharger and in my haste I forgot to take a photo of it. I did take a photo of the groovy sign though:
Okay, so when you order you take one of the menus shown below. Choose from one of four bases: steamed white basmati rice, brown rice, quinoa or fresh baby spinach. I went for the steamed quinoa. Then choose the number of additional dishes you want. I got five, just because I could and I was super hungry. You give your paper to the person taking your order, pay, and get a ticket with a number:
With my quinoa, I ordered the smashed green peas with lime, avocado and mint; braised herb seitan in shoyu broth; the mild eggplant curry; some pumpkin mash (I’ve forgotten the formal name) and the broccoli option (again, I forgot to take note of what it was or take a photo of that part of the menu). Closeup!
All the above cost $14. I was absolutely stuffed and loved my meal. Supercharger is definitely not just a ‘food court place’, if you know what I mean. It goes waaaay above and beyond. It has quickly shot to the top of my preferred places to eat in the city. There were quite a few people ordering meals (and a few of us trying to work out the ordering system, but the staff were friendly and helped us). I’m already planning on taking friends and family there and I’m planning on trying something different every time.
Supercharger also sell these freshly made juices and smoothies. I saw a price of $8 for a juice, though I’m not sure if all drinks are eight bucks:
To get to Supercharger, go to Myer Emporium. Make your way to the third floor and look for the food court area. Then do what I did and walk around trying to find it but look for the word VEGAN and you’re set!
