With time, people are considering an ever more conscious approach towards their dietary preferences. It is no surprise that a huge chunk of office-goers misses their most critical meal of the day i.e. breakfast. Eating outside is often looked down upon given the fact that most of it is either junk food or too oily to be savoured. But there are some places in India that are changing the perspective of how and what we eat when we go outside and for this, obviously one needs to go beyond their familiar staples! The trend of organic and healthy food is soaring high in the skies with restaurants and cafes providing uncompromised quality food to their guests. There is the list of top 5 organic food restaurants in India. Let those guilty pleasures become not so guilty!
Birdsong Organic Café, Hill Road, Bandra West, Mumbai
This café is a well-known café that serves organic food. A multi-cuisine restaurant, it is a perfect joint for the office people. Known for their variety of breakfasts, one can be assured of what they claim. My pick here includes Roast Chicken and Toasted Sesame with Tangy Orange and Thyme Dressing Salad, Almond Pesto Open Sandwich and Mutton Stew with Brown Rice. It is a rustic looking bar with sturdy wooden furniture and a lot of space wot eat in peace.
California Burritos, Pyramid Food Court, Embassy Golf Links, Bengaluru
California Burritos have a “No Microwave” and “No Preservatives” policy. They have a variety of Mexican dishes ranging from Burritos, Nachos, Tacos, Rice Bowls and Mexican Salads; all the ingredients are sourced from organic farms. A great option for simple, wholesome and healthy meals. They have a quick and tidy service; a good option for on-the-go eaters.
Organic German Bakeshop, Paharganj, New Delhi
This hidden gem is worth a mention here because of its freshly baked bread. The bread is baked using organically grown and freshly ground grains and a sourdough culture. They have a huge collection of breads like White, Brown, Sesame, Muesli, Multigrain, Five corn and Rye. Other than this, they have a Banana, Mango and Mixed Fruit Smoothies.
This South Indian café is a delight for the vegetarians. Options are varied owing to the diversity of the South Indian cuisine. This vegetarian-only restaurant handpicks its vegetables and pulses from organic farms only. Not to forget that each of the items is made with health being the priority. Some of the must-try dishes are Podi Oothappam and Aazhi Amudham. Their breakfast drinks are served between 07:00 am to 10:00 am. I would highly recommend Panagam - Tamil Nadu traditional drink made with palm sugar and tamarind with a touch of dry ginger and lemon and Kambuchaa - a fermented health drink based on tea and sugarcane juice in 2 flavours - lemongrass and black tea.
The Yellow Straw, Rajarhat New Town, Kolkata
The Yellow Straw is known for its healthy juices, smoothies and summer coolers at affordable prices. Some of the must-try items on their menu are the Sweet Chilli Potato Toastie, Cheese Garlic Toastie, Healthy Straw, Skin Glow Straw and the Mean Green Straw.
