Ouroboros Organic Wholefoods, Surry Hills

Organic food is neither here nor there for me. The extremes of ‘healthy eat­ing’ don’t res­on­ate with me. To a cer­tain extent, what mat­ters is that the food tastes good and does some work to earn the price deman­ded. So I’m open to K’s sug­ges­tion of Ouroboros Organic Wholefoods in Surry Hills.


I have the Tasmanian smoked sal­mon, avo­cado, feta ($16) on toasted whole wheat soy lin­seed sour­dough with a side of salad.


The sand­wich innards are gen­er­ous — the smoked sal­mon is piled as high as the sour­dough, while the smashed avo­cado threatens to ooze out onto the plate between bites of tangy and salty feta. The ingredi­ents are fresh, but the fla­vour of the sand­wich is much too ordin­ary to war­rant a $16 price tag. I’m not even sure I’d return if the sand­wich was $8.
