One place I was dying to go to during our trip was Flax & Kale. Another place my friends have been telling me about. Their menu looked incredible and I was so excited to give it a try. What I really loved about the place was that it felt like restaurant and not a café. Usually healthy food places tend to be cafés. It was great because they served cold-pressed juices to have with your meal as well as beer and wine. So Jamie had some wine and I had a juice, perfect for the both of us 😉 Flax & Kale have a roof terrace, which was just beautiful. I loved sitting up there surrounded by the greenery in the sun.
The menus were just beautiful and filled with delicious sounding dishes and treats. They even included the health benefits of the ingredients they use, definitely my kind of menu. There are loads of dishes with meat, fish and also vegan options. All sounding heavenly, it was not an easy decision.
If you get a chance to go you have to try their meze platter to start, it was delicious! We loved everything on it. Jamie had the tuna burger with a charcoal bun as his main whilst I had the raw lasagne, I actually wanted to try their courgette flowers but they had sold out, popular dish! I loved my juice (the name of it was quite interesting haha) and my food was really good but raw food is so incredibly rich and filling that I couldn’t finish it. How beautiful did it look though? Food art! There was still room for some dessert somehow… Don’t ask me how. We just thought we had to try as much as possible when we had the chance to. So we had the apple crumble with sweet potato ice cream (homemade of course). Yes sweet potato ice cream! Never thought that could be a thing but it was actually really nice. The dessert was really fresh and you just can’t go wrong with apple crumble in my eyes, I’m a huge fan.
Wish I could snap my fingers and just be there on the roof terrace, sipping on my juice and stuffing my face with goodness.
