Raw by Nolu’s

The healthier version of the cool cafe Nolu’s

Time Out Says

Nestled next to Al Seef Mall and mere metres away from two gyms, Raw by Nolu’s must be feeling very smug about bagging such
a perfect location. Ideally located to draw in all the health buffs as they head out for a post-workout smoothie, it’s also a popular spot for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

We go for a breakfast classic; avocado toast with organic poached eggs. The huge pile of creamy avocado is garnished with almonds, radish, feta, sprouts and spiralised cucumber. It looks brilliant.

However, the seeded toast is really more like a thin cracker made entirely from seeds. It’s deceptively filling, but if you were expecting a hearty slice of bread, you might be disappointed. We also can’t resist the edamame explosion bagel; the idea of edamame hummus is just too intriguing to resist. It’s almost as good as the classic chickpea version and it’s topped with poached eggs, tomatoes and a delicate bowl of fruit.

The coffees take a while to arrive but when they do they are beautifully presented and finished off with a tiny cookie. Although it tastes naughty, we know it’s almost certainly the healthiest baked good we’ve ever eaten. The only slight flaw is that there’s far too much cinnamon on the coconut chai latte for our taste.

This is the kind of place where everything is spiralised, and gluten is the enemy. But it’s refreshing to know that whatever you choose, it definitely won’t be bad for you.
