Could be healthier, please make an effort!
Posted on 10 / 07 / 2013
I went for breakfast at the Playa d'en Bossa location. My first meal in Ibiza. The menu had lots of pricy smoothies with attractive name categories (power, detox, aphrodisiac etc). The vegan breakfast choice was very limited, I had a falafel and potato wedges. I was surprised and not very happy about the store bought American style sliced "whole grain" bread it was served on. These usually have milk, milk powder and or eggs in them, not to mention shelf-life extending chemicals... I would not have that at home and I would never serve that in my restaurant. My excitement about a healthy place to eat daily immediately wore off. I also went to the other location by Lio. I was staying around the corner so I went a few times for green smoothies and I tried all their vegan desserts. They were all too heavy for me, I don't know why as they were small. I liked the place, it has a very nice atmosphere. But please, drop the butter and dairy! I'm not saying to go all out vegan (well, I would prefer if they did obviously), but don't use cholesterol and heart disease inducing foods if you want to live raw and healthy, and be advocators of that lifestyle (given their magazine and the Loving Hut style cooking clips with the owner on TV screens, I assume they want to be). I was really dying for some carrot cake. Made me sad it wasn't vegan. Carrots are so fantastic, sweet and juicy. Why not just enhance their natural beauty with some spices and dates? I do it daily, it is heaven! People love it! Raw vegan carrot cake is the sh**!! I really wanted some carrot cake!!! I will update this review and add a few stars once there are more vegan options on the menu [including my vegan carrot cake!].
