Your everyday lunch or dinner
Posted on 09 / 08 / 2013
Before being vegan I already ate @ this Mens@Sana at least ones or twice a week because my office was near. And from that I understood that if I went vegan, I would have still had plenty of food to eat even without dead flash and dairy.
Mens@sana is a chain of Vegan gastronomy/deli where you can order to go or to eat there.
Food changes from day to day and every day you can choose between many types of cereals (barley, spelt, oats, whole rice etc.), season veggies, "proteins" (seitan, tofu, tempeh), legumes and desserts. You can compose your main dish with all the available options and pay by weight. Water and bancha tea included and available at every table.
The food is prepared the day before and then re-heated before being served so I suggest not to choose any kind of pasta because it would be overcooked.
I heard the chef comes from the macrobiotic school therefore someone could feel a lack in salt. It's available, together with gomasio, just ask!
I think prices are a little bit too high compared to the expectations given by the location. A full dish + a dessert might cost around € 15-18, it doesn't matter if it's to stay or to go.
My favourites desserts are hazelnuts cake (unbelievable, it seems to eat solid Nutella), chocolate salami and sacher cake. If I understood well there's malt instead of sugar as sweetener in dessert. Which is so cool.
My favouire food are seitan (seasoned in any way... it's soo fluffy), gnocchi, lasagna, broccoli and pumpkin flan!
