Global Cafe lunchbox. $10 lunch review

By johnboy 14 February 2011 30

global cafe lunch box

Global Cafe is a new little player up next to the Kremlin Bar on Northbourne Avenue.

As an Ethiopian Cafe one imagines the coffee could be worth a try, but this is a lunch review series.

The world is roughly divided into those who’ve tried Ethiopian cuisine and like it, and those who’re still making jokes based on a 30 year gone famine.

If you’re in the latter camp then it really is time to get with the program.

For $8 Global Cafe will fill up a tub for you with either rice or injera and a choice of stews or vegetables.

They do amazing things with lentils so that’s highly recommended. I also went with the vegetables and a beef wat.

Filling, very tasty, and very fast.

(For more sub $10 lunches in Civic check the tag, if you’ve got recommendations let me know.)

UPDATE: The Global Cafe folk have been in touch to let us know they now have a website.

Why? If JB enjoys the meals what is the problem? Or have you found some great big cash for comment conspiracy? Quick, quick, get onto media watch.

I even pay for the lunches!

You’re doing it wrong.

yeah, thats exactly how JB pays for the site, $10 cash-for-comment lunches. *rolls eyes*

People suggest (good) places for him to eat, hes enjoyed the meals so far. I dont really see an issue here.

Can you write them off as work-related tax deductions?

If so, you might want to think about a series of reviews of some *cough* slightly more expensive meals.

I’m still waiting to see you try something for under $10 and report that it was crap.

And I keep answering, why would I eat a crap lunch?

In the interests of research? Providing a service to the rest of us? Taking one for the team?

All of these.

Interestingly, I’ve eaten at many of the places you’ve reviewed and my experience with a few was that the food was not very good.

Wow, if your not happy with it, you don’t have to read it. I mean he isn’t charging you to give his opinion. You go eat Macca’s meals for the $10 feed and I will continue to read the articles and pick and choose where I want to get food.

The point of a review is to give an honest opinion. If that’s what johnboy has done, then more power to him. I was just making an observation, not criticising.

And yes, johnboy, I probably am a bit harder to please than you.

I’ve been walking past that place for months thinking that I must try it and, after reading this review, I was inspired. I had the chicken with Injera, and it was fantastic. I will be going back there regularly. I also recommend trying That Pizza Place, $4 per slice, and two slices is more than enough for a filling lunch.

Well then go write your own reviews then.

Or possibly learn to read between the lines. Not every review has actually been positive.

On the other hand given the nature of this interaction I’m guessing you’re a bit harder to please than I am.
