Where to Indulge in This Season’s Superfoods

2
shares

Ever since superfoods became a thing, we’ve been reading, talking and even dreaming about them. Although Ashwagandha (a herb used in Ayruverdic healing and otherwise known as Indian ginseng) and Baobab fruit have been named as the new must-eat foods of the year, there are plenty of everyday fruits and vegetables that are equally high in nutrients.

From avocado to watermelon, these foods can be found on almost every menu in Lan Kwai Fong. With the new season fast approaching, we’re ready to get in shape and eat healthy without having to sacrifce on taste or any indulgence. Since beach bodies are made in the kitchen, we’ve compiled the this season’s superfoods and where you can eat them:
 
Blueberries

Who doesn’t love blueberries? This naturally blue superfood is sky-high in antioxidants, allowing your body to fight damage caused by inflammation. At the Diner you can dig into a wholesome superfood salad or a stack of blueberry buttermilk pancakes while still getting your dose of antioxidants.

Tomato

There’s no better time to be mindful of our skin and health than now. Tomatoes are a great way to protect yourself from sun damage and slow down (arterial) ageing. Lycopene, which is highest in red tomatoes, is an antioxidant with a long list of benefits to keep you strong. Looking for the best tomato dishes in town? At Carbone you can find some of the best meatballs and a killer spicy rigatoni vodka pasta - who said superfoods had to be boring?

Watermelon

There’s no better way to refresh and rebuild your electrolytes during the hot season than watermelon. Just like tomatoes, it is high in lycopene and gives you a boost of antioxidants while fighting the precursor to cardiovascular disease. Quench your thirst with the massive All The Way cocktail at Honi Honi - made with watermelon juice and lots of rum. Though it’s meant to be shared, now that you have all the facts, you shouldn’t feel (too) guilty drinking it on your own.

Got the munchies? This spicy and scrumptious watermelon, feta and mint salad at Brickhouse is the perfect way to replenish on a night out.

Avocado

This precious fruit is everything you’d want in a superfood. Filled with heart-healthy fats, they raise good cholesterol while lowering the bad ones and protect your arteries - all at the same time. With avocado toast being one of the trendiest brunch staples, it can be found on almost every menu. However, this egg and mashed avocado toast at Coffee Academics is the one that has us hooked.

Mango

When it comes down to mango, it’s a dessert in itself. Containing everything from copper to magnesium, it has anti-inflammatory properties and boosts your immune system. The perfect treat when you’re craving something sweet, sip on this mango, guava, yuzu and dill mocktail or indulge in a spoonful of mango soup with sweetened beancurd cream at Mott 32.
