I’ve been hearing a lot of praise for a new healthy food spot over in Sea Point called Nü Food… Also a lot of my Instagram feed has been taken over with photos of their smoothies, flapjacks, breakfasts and wraps… So last week I figured it was time for me to go and give them a try for myself.
Nü is situated on the ground level of the Piazza St John centre on Main Road, Sea Point and it’s quite a fresh, modern & welcoming space:
I really loved the look and general feel of the place… very cool spot.
Now the menu is everything a health fanatic could ever ask for. Think local produce, freshest ingredients, additive/colourant/hormone/MSG free, free range, fair trade & sustainable, artisan products, vegan, vegetarian, wheat/dairy/gluten/sugar free and low GI.
You’ll find all of these options on the menu in the form of breakfasts, salads, wraps, sandwiches, fresh juices & smoothies, all aligned to their philosophy of less cooking time where possible and more raw, natural goodness.
So right, with all that in mind, I ordered their “The Healer” smoothie (R28 for small) and my friend D ordered the “Red Renew” smoothie (R34 for small):And that was followed by a “Hearti” wrap (R49) for both of us:
The smoothies I have to say were some of the best I’ve had in Cape Town, and my wrap, while tasty yes, was maybe just a little too healthy for my meat/salt/sugar/fatty loving ways, so I personally found it to be a bit bland. Next time I’ll definitely try add some chicken to spice it up and I also really want to go back to try their protein flapjacks (whey blueberry flapjack with banana, walnuts, honey) and banana bread (banana-coconut bread served with peanut butter, banana, honey, cinnamon). Those last two sound good no?
I’m going to give Nü an all round score of on the Miss K Kiss-o-Meter scale. It’s a lovely spot where you can indulge guilt free, health nuts will love it to bits, and I also think it makes for a great post-workout smoothie stop.
