Madre Natura Lima Reviews
Health food store and cafe - Madre Natura Apr 10, 2010
Lima is becoming a gastronomic capital and the offer of healthy food and natural products is growing too.
This store has been in business for a few years. But it was just recently when it became more popular. Yes, when people started to get more conscious about eating habits.
From outside it looks like a big store. They have all kind of healthy ingredients, like tofu, organic food, cereals, honey, etc. This used to be a house. The garage is the store and the backyard has been transformed in a nice dining area. I'm not Vegetarian, but like to be Vegetarian once in a while and having healthy but also tasty food, sounded so appealing.
You have to go inside the other building to place your order and then they will call you to pick up your tray. The whole menu is vegetarian and about healthy food. You can find salads with different ingredients like quinoa, pizzas, quiches, pastries, etc. They also offer delicious desserts, just using natural products. Great! Their ice creams are very delicious too!
I tried a Mushroom pastry, which was delicious and they serve it warm. They don't use much salt. My mom and I had salads. I tried the Andean one, with quinoa. I learned how to prepare it, was so simple and tasty. Mom had a Mediterranean one, the chickpeas were very good. Of course we wanted to have something sweet. We got a kiwicha flan. The kiwicha is a grain that was used by the Incas and this was the first time I tried it this way, awesome! And also shared an alfajor de miel (two cookies with honey).
The atmosphere is so peaceful here. They also have a parrot that welcome all the guests, hahaha. After enjoying a delicious, healthy and light meal, you can visit their shop where they offer some clothing too.
If you are vegetarian and are looking for a nice place to grab a bite, this is a good option. Also if you are just looking for a store to buy some ingredients to cook, you will find good products here.
