Innovation and flavour top new PoppySeed spring-summer menu

The team at PoppySeed Gourmet Cafés is passionate about making creative homemade food and its new spring-summer menu is its best yet.

The new daytime menu is designed to satisfy the contemporary appetite for nutritious, flavoursome and innovative food, with a focus, too, on locally produced ingredients.

Take the following new menu items for example. The PoppySeed “Bene” (shorthand for Benedict) is a new breakfast-brunch dish of crushed avocado, Loughnane’s of Galway bacon and Galway free range eggs. A crunchy homemade PoppySeed granola which is sugar-free is offered with Galway goat yogurt and toasted seeds. Alongside traditional cooked breakfasts is a veggie alternative with seared halloumi cheese, homemade champ, egg, tomato and mushrooms. The ever favourite pancakes remain and are made with gluten-free flour.

A lunch dish of tiger prawns tossed in chive garlic butter with Paolo’s Italian bread is one of a number of “hip & hot” dishes. The others include a chicken breast fillet brioche bap and a handmade burger of the day with slow roast baby potatoes and house salad.

Vegetarians and meat eaters are equally well catered for with a choice of four signature salads that includes an Asian-spiced beef salad and an Eastern-spiced falafel salad.

Tasty sandwich options include baked avocado crush, Galway goat cheese, Jamaican spiced chicken and PoppySeed ploughman.

Judy Forde, head chef at PoppySeed said, “I really enjoyed working on this menu. Our team all worked together and concentrated on healthy options and vibrant flavour. I am certain there are choices for everyone.”

The new spring-summer menus are now available at the three PoppySeed daytime café-restaurants at Eyre Street in Galway, Oranmore and Clarinbridge.
