Yummy, super healthy and a treat all over
Posted on 08 / 25 / 2012
My friend and me did a day trip to Bratislava, which is such a lovely city. The old town is downright beautiful and you can feel the impact of the EU (e.g. buildings getting restored)
Beforehand we checked Happy Cow to have a suitable place to eat as although Bratislava is fairly in the west, you feel the Eastern Europe influence on food anyway which is dominated by meat.
To find Bemba you have got to get on a tram (I don't recall which right now, but Google is your friend and you'll find it easily, there are at least two lines going) and then the real adventure begins: Finding it. Now lucky you I'm writing this, it's located on the third floor of a "shopping centre", you have to go round and round but once you've found it HAPPINESS awaits.
The menu is super large and since we weren't able to decide, we took a platter for two and fresh green juice. Everything was raw and super yum. There was a burger, salad, rolls, a little pizza and much more. Definitely worth a try! Although we were fairly full, we wanted still got a desert, cherry strudel. Every bite was a treat and absolutely delicious.
Bemba is run by a young family, there is place for children to play, to read books (they have a shelf but I guess you'd have to know Slovak) and large tables for YOUR whole family to eat. The walls are a colourful light green and the atmosphere is all over friendly and open.
The waitress spoke better German than English, but was always eager to help and communication never was a problem.
If you are in Bratislava, do get on a tram and check Bemba out yourself. It's about 15minutes from the city centre and totally worth it. For our two course menu with drinks we paid about 20€ each. In Germany we would have paid double or thrice the price.
Next time in Bratislava we will definitely make it there again!
amazing food, healthy, fresh, seasonal, fantastic value
a little far from the city center, not easy to find
