Hello lovelies! Happy Saturday. Hope you’ve had a nice relaxing start so far. I’m still fighting of this stupid cough and it’s not giving up. I’m doing everything I can to try and cure it but nothing seems to be working. A bit frustrating but hopefully there’ll be a turning point soon.
I think I have a new healthy favourite in Stockholm. Mahalo on “Söder” (South of Stockholm) is a vegan café that was on my to visit list. I went there with my friend Gabbie during the day on New Years Eve. It’s yet another place I’ve been following on social media, drooling over their delicious-looking feed. Everything looked so colourful and fresh.
They’ve got all the things you’d want from a healthy eating café such as smoothies, acai bowls, all forms of lattes such as matcha and turmeric lattes, raw desserts and different kinds of salad bowls. There was so much I wanted to try I didn’t even know what to choose. I didn’t know when I was next returning so the pressure was on to choose something really good! I went for the Buddha bowl with tempeh. I’d never tried tempeh before so I was really excited about that. Supposedly I’ve heard it’s slightly better for you than tofu seeing as the soybeans are fermented but don’t quote me on that!
I of course couldn’t say no to a matcha latte when it was on offer, unfortunately they were out of oat milk so I went for almond milk. I probably should’ve just skipped it because almond milk matcha lattes are no where near as nice as oat milk ones. Oat milk has a slightly sweet taste whilst almond milk I really just taste like water with a hint of watered down almond. Gabbie couldn’t resist ordering one of their acai bowl, the large size of course. She’s had quite a few during her many visits to the US so she’d know if it was a good one or not.
The Buddha Bowl was delicious! So much flavour going on the plate with pickled cabbage, a beautiful miso dressing (I think it was) and loads of fresh veg. I loved it and I really liked the tempeh, it had a nice texture. Gabbie’s acai bowl was delicious as well! I got the chance to finish it off when she got too full and I couldn’t say no to an offer like that. Way better than any of the acai bowls I’ve tried in Glasgow. It was lovely sweet and all the amazing toppings lifted it to a whole new level.
The look of the entire venue reminded me a bit of Farm Girl in London. It didn’t feel very Swedish the Mahalo, more London style kind of venue, which I loved. I really feel like Mahalo has got the heart in the right place and you tell it from the food they served. Both dishes we tried tasted delicious!
Time to get ready for some yoga guys! Have a great day xxx
