Studio Voodoo is quite different. The most obvious way is that it has no venue and operates as a shopless service. What this means is you view the menu on Facebook or via SMS and order via Facebook, message or phone over the week to Thursday. You then pick up the food at a home in Port Willunga, just south of the city.
It mainly operates on Friday evenings and sometimes Saturday or Sunday.
What this essentially means is this is a very food centric service.
The location is not an issue for us but is going to be a stretch for those coming from the north of the city. The food is delivered into your hands plated but generally not heated. The pizza was fully cooked but pizzas kinda need that don't they? The rest you heat at home and you also return the dishes.
Unsurprisingly, given the unusual method of business, the food is relatively cheap for the level of quality I saw. So this is good value with good quality. It is well presented and the dishes use the clean white look.
The food is excellent. Every aspect is paid attention to. For example, the pizza we had got the crust, the sauce, the toppings and the fake prawns so right it was quite a pleasure to eat. We also had a mushroom lasagne, cheesecake, bread and butter pudding and quiche. I didn't even know quiche was possible as vegan without being a little compromised. I've had quiches for years before my vegan life from very good cooks (mostly Italians) and this one was up there with the best. No soggy embarrassment, no dry mouthfeel or stodginess. Lovely. My sole criticism would be the bread and butter pudding was watery on the top in one section.
Overall the food is fresh, balanced, well seasoned and mixes a restaurant feel with a slight homeliness.
The menu is all vegan and seems to offer around a dozen dishes from entrees to dessert and varies considerably from week to week and season to season. Some of their dishes are raw vegan or gluten free. They also do a range of fresh salads.
The personal service was very good. Friendly, fast, approachable and clear.
The style here is restaurant level takeaway.
