Wholefoods and lunches with a nod to the East

Posted on 09 / 01 / 2011

Art of Eating is both a health food shop and a place to pick up nutritious a take-out lunch (though, if space permits, you can sit in the window and watch the world go by).

Wenmi, the bubbly owner, hails from China and the dishes offered reflect her origins, meaning rice, noodles and soy products are to the fore, along with lots of veggies. Under pressure from the lunchtime trade, she does 2 out of 8 options with chicken, but the rest are vegan. For a substantial meal, you can get a box made up mixing these salad, noodle and rice dishes to your choosing - all very tasty. Payment is by weight, which does make things hard to guage. Miso soup, fresh sushi, cakes, teas and coffees are also available.

While the amount of shelving space for the wholefoods area is limited, it's used to the maximum to offer a decent overall range. The selection of pre-packed wholefoods is mostly organic and there is also a unit of Chinese and Eastern specialities. As with the food she prepares herself, Wenmi is a real enthusiast for what she stocks and can offer good recommendations and suggestions. She's also very keen to get feedback on products from returning customers. Happily, there's not a supplement in site - the focus here is on proper food!

Check out the Art of Eating website for a sense of her philosophy and passion about the health benefits of good food - and for details of any upcoming cookery classes she has on.

Pros: Good vegan deli selection, Friendly, knowledgeable staff
Cons: Some limitations to wholefood range
