Vegan Burger in Como – Mystic Burger

 

When walking around in Como you’ll get lost in its fairytale labyrinth. On every corner there is a coffee bar and around lunch time the smell of Pasta Pomodoro fills the streets. However, when following your nose a little longer you’ll be pulled into another authentic side street in which you’ll find a cafe named Mystic Burger. This cafe doesn’t only look cute they also serve the most tasty vegan burger in the whole of Como.

 

What to have

You come here for a real burger experience and don’t you worry the Vegan Burger will give you the full package! Your first bite into this burger is a true mouthful. Whether you are vegan or not, when craving a burger you are looking for the whole experience. You want to use your hands, take a bite of a burger that should obviously be too big to fit in your mouth while the sauce slowly drips from the back onto your hands. You want to get down and dirty and believe me, this burger will tick all those boxes!

The Vegan Burger (€11,- with sides €14,-) consists of a vegetable patty, layered with a tomato & baked black olive salad, topped with a vegan fruit cheese and served in a homemade wholewheat bun. It’s a burger which is rich with lots of different flavours and textures. As you take a bite the vegan cheese will drip down your hands and the fresh flavour of the salad will kick in. Each bite is the combination of crunchy and fluffy textures. This includes the bread, it’s fluffy with a slight crunchy layer on the outside – super delicious!

The side dishes consist of fries and a freshly made salad. The fries look hand cut and are crispy from the outside while fluffy from the inside. Also to add a little healthy twist they serve it with a side salad of spelt, mixed veggies and beans. Its something I have never had as a side to a burger before, but I honestly love it. Its a little health kick that tastes amazing and even when ordering a kick-ass burger you also fuel your body with veggies – win win!

 

 

Where to go

 

Mystic Burger is open Tuesday to Sunday from 12:00-1:00 and closed on Monday. 

Their address is Via Diaz, 78/80 and it’s located in a cute street in the centre of Como.

You can sit inside but also outside on the terrace which is located opposite the cafe. Its a lovely spot in the middle of beautiful buildings, plus you can do some people watching whilst waiting for your ultimate burger to arrive!

The first Superfoods bar serving the best Açai in Saint-Tropez – Açai Spot

 

I love the South of France for it’s warm colours, it’s cosy atmosphere and it’s beautiful scenery. I come here very often and that’s why I am so happy to have found this little gem in the middle of Saint-Tropez! Apart from the beach of course this will be the spot where you’ll find me! Enjoying my Açai Bowl in the sun while watching people go past through the stunning streets of the city.

This cafe that I am so in love with is called Açai Spot. It’s a little cafe in the middle of a cute street near the water. It’s the perfect spot to quickly pick up some breakfast or a quick snack. Or if you got some time sit down with your freshly made Açai bowl and enjoy the view.

What’s so special about this place is the fact that everything they serve here is 100% natural, has no sugar and absolutely no animal products in it. All the dishes are home-made, high quality and made with pure love. But it’s not only the dishes that are 100% natural. You are sitting in a complete natural environment! The bar is made with organic material and even the plastic bowls, cups and cutlery is made with compostable ‘plastic’. Meaning when a bowl or a spoon is placed in water it will dissolve over a short time – happy days for Mother Nature!

 

 

What to have

 

My absolute favourite and of course the first thing you have to try is the Açai Bowl (S €13/L €16). The amazing thing is that you can put together your entire bowl. Starting with a base you can choose between coconut, pitaya, Açai Pure and Açai Energy. Then choose the fruit you want it mixed with and finish off with the toppings! Different types of fruit, seeds, quinoa flakes and so on. If you order large you are in for a treat as it’s prepared to be a full meal. With lots of protein and amazing vitamins and minerals you have yourself a healthy boost that both your body and mind will love!

 

 

The quality of their ingredients and Açai is truly impressive. In fact, you’ll even see people from Brazil licking their lips when they leave with their very own bowl. One thing is for sure, they have some kick ass açai with which they make a kick ass bowl!

If you are an Açai freak like me this is also a great spot to take some high quality Açai home with you. They sell large bags of it in the cafe which are amazing. They also have snacks made daily such as delicious Energy Balls, which are great to take on the go! You can also order a fresh cold soup, juice, vegan protein smoothie or a ginger health shot if you are feeling extra healthy!

I truly love everything about this cafe. The natural and cosy atmosphere, the sweet and comforting people and of course the high quality and delicious products and meals. Their focus is ‘to inspire people to make decisions for a healthy and balanced diet by offering products aimed at their well-being’. All this with a little fun and sweetness added!

 

Where to go

Açai Spot is open everyday from 7am -7pm and their address is 15 Rue des Remparts
in Saint-Tropez.

Crate cafe – vibrant and trendy brunch spot you can’t miss

 

As you might know Canggu is full of trendy cafes and bars, vegan, organic or raw, you have it all! But as there is quite a large choice, which do you choose? Well, the best place to start is at the beautifully raw cafe named Crate Cafe in Canggu! This cafe has a buzzing atmosphere and is one of the trendiest spots. The interior has a rustic look and is build with few walls, this way everything feels very open and spacious. When walking up the rustic stairs you find yourself on the roof top which is beautifully designed. The whole place has a raw and earthy feeling to it. And this reflects in their food! A huge menu is written on the rusty wall and each dish sounds more amazing than the last, making it very hard to choose!

 

What I have

Both the juices ‘Dr. ABC‘ and ‘Surfs Up‘ are my favourites. They are both deliciously refreshing, which is always a win win in Bali! (50k Idr/ 2.80 Gbp).

For a vegetarian breakfast both the ‘Brekkie Plate‘ (50k idr/ 2.80 Gbp) and the ‘Veto‘ (45k Idr/2.50 Gbp) are a filling and healthy breakfast, which is a win win!

However, for my fellow vegans, you’re in for a treat! They have the most exotic chia pods that you HAVE to try. Not only are they vibrant and super delicious, they are also extremely Instagram friendly! A big jug of chia pudding topped with a smoothie will overflow your jug leaving a delicious mess. Two of my favourites are the ‘Chia Boy‘ which is chocolate and coconut based and the ‘BlueBS‘ is made with blue spirulina giving it the most awesome colour.

Another two deliciously vegan breakfasts/brunches are called the ‘Hipstar‘ which consists of Acai, berries and Chia (50k Idr/ 2.80 Gbp) and the ‘Green brekkie‘ which consists of quinoa, greens and avocado (45k Idr/2.50 Gbp). One thing is for sure, you will definitely be leaving with a happy body and a happy mind every. single. time.

For an extra pick me up I also love getting a ‘Dirty Chai Latte‘ which is a delicious Chai latte with almond milk and a shot of espresso. Accompany your latte with a vegan muffin and you will be left mind blown. (My favourite combo!)

 

 

The service is quick and the people are lovely! Don’t have time to sit down? Order a take away and enjoy a delicious breakfast on the road! It’s a must visit spot for any trendy bendy especially if you want to keep up with the Bali hype!

 

Where to go

Crate Cafe is open everyday from 07:00 – 15:00 and is located on Jalan Canggu Padang Linjong in Canggu.
