I think my favourite aspect of this restaurant is that they really practice what they preach, in using healthy ingredients infused with superfoods to create healthy dishes that make you feel great. Though everything was light on the stomach, I left feeling satisfied and very energetic.
Foodwise, it was a solid 4. The dishes were simple and fresh, kicked up a notch with the addition of 'superfoods' to every component of the meal. Everything was tasty, with no strong flavours, so though many different foods and superfoods were used in the dishes, no one flavour overpowered another. I had the complete menu. I was first served some slices of cactus and a few goldenberries, as well as my choice of drink (you can choose from refreshing tonics, vegan milkshakes enhanced with sweet superfoods, or chocolate beverages hot or cold), a nice concoction of aloe, lemon, and watermelon. I then had the detox soup, which was very refreshing. The plate of the day consisted of spirulina rice, maca stewed potatoes, a salad with avocado and a tangy light acerola dressing, leek and cacao stir fry, carrot and pumpkin stew, tofu infused with purple corn, and a side of spirulina sauce. I had the purple corn jelly for dessert, which was topped with shavings of cacao butter, and was very refreshing and not too sweet.
The restaurant also doubles as a shop where you can buy many packaged superfood powders, leaves, and tablets, as well as fresh aloe vera and cactus leaves for a very reasonable price. The atmosphere is casual, with shared tables and barrels serving as chairs, but everything is nice and tidy.
Original Concept, Energising, nutritious food, Nice atmosphere
