What comes to mind for most people when they hear “vegan” is: hippies, scrawny weaklings, salad leaves and a sad, sad life without meat. Poor vegans.
Our visit to The Bowl made us rethink our well groomed stereotypes. Their concept is “clean eating”. That means the food is 100% vegan, there’s absolutely no additives, no white sugar and no trans fats. All the ingredients are fresh from the farm and their quality is second to none. Honestly: we haven’t had such a good meal for a long time. Just reading the menu card kept us busy for 15 minutes, because ALL the dishes sound so good. One of the famous bowls reads like this:
lemon quinoa, fried sweet potatoes, sesame tamari spinach, raw apple carrot salade, avocado slices with sesame, tomato coriander salsa, teriyaki hibiscus sauce, mixed greens with superfood dressing.
Even us, known to be amongst the most prestigious meat lovers on the planet, had to admit their menu sounds amazing. We were just as surprised to see that all the customers looked like regular people! The place itself knows to impress with a light hearted interior design, matching the “clean eating” concept perfectly. Other than bowls, you can choose between starters, smoothies, side dishes, tapas and dessert, all of the finest quality. There’s also super tasty self made lemonade and of course various coffee specialities.
We can whole heartedly recommend The Bowl, even for meat lovers. There’s more than enough alternatives to make up for the lack of meat. And just in case: there’s no entry control, so in theory you probably could smuggle in a Schnitzel or two under your jacket. But psshhh, you didn’t hear that from us!
