It’s Foodie Tuesday, and the ITC team love a good wrap! This one, which is available at Cafe Geo in Lane Cove North, looks the goods!!
Cafe Geo’s Vegeo Wrap is a definite crowd pleaser. This delicious Vegetarian breakfast, lunch or just a snack wrap has fresh ingredients locally sourced from Lime Leaf Fruit Shop in Lane Cove all wrapped up with a Mediterranean twist.
Zaartar bread which is a well-known staple for the Middle Eastern culture, is freshly made at Café Geo. The smell of the Zaartar bread (which is essentially a mix of Thyme, Oregano and other spices ) in the oven, takes us back to our childhood days when grandma would make this for breakfast and put on a breakfast spread on Sundays.
Geo’s take on this authentic dish is the Vegeo Wrap with fresh tomatoes, cucumber, Spanish onion and labni all wrapped up in the fresh Zaartar bread.
