SMAK is located at the end of a no through road, 10 minutes from South Yarra Station with Fancy Nance as their neighbour. SMAK focus on a serving healthy choices yet appealing and approachable. The menu has a Scandinavian influence to it with attractive presentation and nutritious value underneath.

What attracted me to SMAK is their appealing green tea crepes, I missed the green tea crepes special at Common Galaxia so I jump into SMAK as I can. I'm also intrigue with their healthy concept yet approachable cause I'm into healthy eating but I'm not too extreme into it so I would love to enjoy good food, yet healthy. The cafe it self was trendy, modern, minimalistic with industrial finishing. It has a similarity with KItty Burns

We started our brunch session with something warm since it's very cold and windy outside. Skinny Cappuccino and Matcha Latte ($5.5). Their coffee was pretty good in consistency and taste. The matcha latte was well decorated and charming, none other cafe decorated it this way so far.

Buckwheat Matcha Crepes - biodynamic SMAK berry ricotta, lemon curd, lime coconut sorbet, olive oil emulsion and Brazil nuts ($18). It was a very pretty dish as well as very enjoyable. The crepe was slightly burned on the side but the rest of it remain fluffy and flavourful. I needed a little bit more matcha flavour in it but the combination was nicely done. The coconut sorbet, lemon curd and berry ricotta provide creaminess and freshness in the same time. Mixed in nicely with the crepes.

SMAk Chargrilled Char Siu Pork - apple cider pickled vegetables ($17). The Char Siu was well cooked and very well seasoned,full of punching flavour but it needed something more on the dish to balanced out the sweetness.

It was an enjoyable brunch, I love the vibe of the place as well the food presented. I would love to come back to try their Poached Tarragon Organic Chicken and Smoked Hickory Blackened Salmon. SMAK is a nice change for the brunch scene, pretty, healthy but remain approachable and delicious. Love it.
