In Dubai you will find international cuisine from all over the world. Whenever I visit, I’m usually spoiled with delicious Biryani and South Asian cuisine. During my last visit I needed a break from the indulgence of meats and strong spices, and I craved a healthy, vegan detox. I found the perfect place:
Wild and the Moon has two locations in Dubai, in the Al Qouz Industrial Area and the other is on Emaar Avenue. I visited the Alserkal Avenue located in Al Qouz. The vegan staple also has locations in Paris and New York.
The restaurant brands themselves as “a lifestyle movement created by a tribe of food lovers, chefs, nutritionists and naturopaths.”
They use hormone-free, cruelty-free, local and plant based ingredients, among other things.
Their acai bowls attracted me the most, but I was also pleased to find healthy take-out dehydrated snack options, and detox smoothies.
On their website you can find detox and cleaning programs provided by resident Naturopath and President of the International Congress of Naturopathy Anne Marie Narboni, who serves as the Holistic Ambassador of Wild & The Moon.
For my lunch, I ordered their Liquid Motivation smoothie, which has extremely rich anthocyanins berries and was geared to boost my immune system and mental function. To sweeten my taste buds, I choose their frozen Dragon Bowl, with a variety of Dragon fruits mixed and topped with coconut flakes, chia seeds, goji berries and gluten-free oats.
Another choose I made was their tacos with avocados, tomatoes, on a gluten-free wrap, with vegan mayo. It was mouth-watering and delicious.
Lastly, I took home the popular Elixir Virdem from Anima Mundi. It’s a powerful cleansing formula, rich in iron and made to oxygenate blood, and clean out toxicity from our blood streams. You’re supposed to drink 1 tsp before a meal. I felt my gut get cleaned out, so that can only mean it hopefully worked.
