Plant 13 Review
Planet 13? Plant 18? The Plant? This new Bowden eatery complex has heard lots of incorrect variations of its name, but for the record it’s called Plant 13 and it’s fantastic.
Despite an initial offer of a shopfront on Rundle St, Plant 13 has made the right decision and nestled right on the cusp of the current redevelopment in Bowden, making it destined to be an eatery hot spot over the suburb’s two-year growth.
Owned by a gent hailing from Georgia in the US, the menu is American-themed with everything from buttermilk pancakes to pulled pork buns with a side of slaw. There’s also a strong emphasis on homemade - the kitchen uses only ethical meat products which are smoked out the back in their house smoker, all eggs are sourced from free range local hens and they’re currently growing their own herb garden too. All of these bode for a tasty big breakfast, which is spread on a big ceramic plate. The ‘soft’ eggs, cooked for two hours at 62.3C, with tomato, mushroom, bacon and homemade fennel and chilli sausage is a winning dish.
Coffee is decent, but you’ll want to order yourself one of the sweet iced teas over that, which comes in a giant jar full to the brim of lemon wedges. At the moment Plant 13 is open every day for lunch and breakfast, but dinner hours are soon to come. We can’t wait.
