Tak­ing choice to the ex­tremes

Evening Express (City Final) - The Guide - - EATING OUT - Lau­rna Robert­son

ONCE your eyes ad­just to the wall of glass with the most in­cred­i­ble views over the beach, the Tran­si­tion Ex­treme Sim­bio­sis En­ergy cafe menu will make your jaw drop once again. The ad­ven­tur­ous sec­tion has com­bi­na­tions for pani­nis, baguettes, wraps, salad boxes or buns which would not oc­cur to most peo­ple. Feel­ing it was only in the right spirit to try one of these choices, my bet­ter half opted for the co­conut satay chicken, Parma ham & co­rian­der mayo panini (£4.15) while I chose the daily spe­cial, a hag­gis, hal­loumi and apri­cot chut­ney bun (£3). We also or­dered a bowl of chips to share (£1.99). Katy’s panini was spilling out with good­ness and the range of colours in the salad was mouth­wa­ter­ing. On tast­ing it, she said it was fresh with a rich nutty flavour. Her only com­plaint was the peanut fill­ing made her mouth a lit­tle dry. My se­same seeded piece was dom­i­nated by the spicy hag­gis flavour with the sweet chut­ney taste lack­ing. Both were big por­tions and worked well as main meals with the large bowl of freshly cooked chips. With the sounds of skate­boards whizzing un­der­neath, the peace­ful sea view and a heap of other com­bi­na­tions to try, we can’t wait to re­turn.
