We were ecstatic to discover Blue Planet.
The sweet folks who own and run the place make it magical, and that is due in equal parts to the creative cuisine and their warm personalities.
Blue Planet serves inspired dishes, including many original inventions. The diverse menu includes meals, soups, salads, snacks, desserts, and a generous selection of juices, smoothies, and other drinks. Almost everything can be made vegan. Even the lassi can be made with soy yoghurt, which was a real treat.
The salads are a must-have, for two reasons. First, they soak the salad ingredients in an antimicrobial solution to make them completely safe. (This is a big deal, because simply washing the greens with boiled/filtered water, as many other restaurants do, does not make them bacteriologically safe.) Second, they really know how to make a tasty salad. Their flair for flavor applies to their salads as well as their cooked meals.
We were told that they're currently using about 20% organic ingredients, and hoping to increase the percentage as more becomes available locally.
We ate here half a dozen times, trying as many different things as possible, and everything we had was great.
- Flax noodles with avocado pesto
- Avocado salad
- Vegan strawberry lassi
- Vegan avocado shake
Also especially good:
- Tofu sticks with pineapple sauce
- Stuffed "mufa" (big dumpling)
- Vegan carrot cake with chocolate sauce.
Moderate prices, fair considering the quality of the food.
It's located in the forest above Agonda beach and would be a long walk on foot, but those who make the journey will be well rewarded. (We rented a scooter, which makes it quite easy.)
Highly recommended! :-)Pros: Exceptionally creative cuisine, Very vegan-friendly, Great people
