Yes, yes this is a special post for my lunch trek to Piccolo Me at Castlereagh St! It’s just off the main road at the top of Martin Place but you can’t miss the bright yellow logo outside! After my constant badgering on Instagram, Roy kindly invited me to sample the Nutellagato (affogato variation with Nutella ice-cream).
Nutella and banana roll ($6.50)
The Nutellagato – Before (complimentary)
The Nutellagato – During (complimentary)
The Nutellagato – Ready to eat! (complimentary)
Pulled pork & rocket wrap
The Ricky Ricardo – Salami, tomato, cucumber & provolone dolce ($8.00)
The Food Zoo experience: The lunch wraps/salad options are on the lighter side so you know you’re not going back to the office for a food coma. It also means more room for the nutella bomb or *drumroll please*…. The Nutellagato! A double ristretto shot + Nutella ice-cream. I love all things nutella so needless to say I will be going back for more! For those who are wanting to try it out, the Nutellagato is available starting August 11th at all stores =)

The Food Zoo experience:
The coffees here a pretty average, but it’ll do in a pinch. This cafe is set in the middle of a park. Its actually pretty relaxing, except they are lacking in heaters to keep the place warm. On the day that we went there were about 3 different semi-large functions, and as a result our food took about 40 minutes to arrive (we were warned). The fries were tasty, and the wrap was a less tastier version of El Jannah’s. If you are to order to Mezze Board, order the serving for two people, as you get a larger variety of dips and we all know variety is the spice of life. The Fatit Al Homos was really the only thing that we ordered appropriately for a cold winter’s lunch! It was warm and tasty.
I have to say the breakfast menu is what you want to come for, for me at least.
