Inspired by their travels, the owners of Lyfe have tasted the world and have now poured their shared experiences into this healthy and tasty food menu in Maadi. We visited for an afternoon bite and left satisfied.
Tuna and Salmon Poke Bowls, Oaty Pancakes with an assortment of toppings, Wellness Shots.
We started the meal with an order of Avo-Kiwi Smoothie, a combination of kiwi, avocado, arugula, low-fat milk, and raw honey, a meal in itself really! Next came the Immunity juice; orange, carrot, and ginger. Cold-pressed juices are prepared using a slow juice presser to carefully extract all the vitamins and enzymes without compromising any flavor, which is an added benefit. Lyfe’s smoothies and juices are fresh, organic, and worth a visit alone especially in the upcoming hot months.
We then tucked into our mains; a Chicken and Avocado Toastie, served with delicious roasted sweet potato cubes, a Spicy Thai Beef salad and their famous Salmon Poke Bowl. The toasted sandwich hit the spot, the perfect serving for a ‘lunch-on-the-go’ – tender chicken slices, creamy avocado and a delicious dressing. The sweet potato accompaniment was glazed in a tasty dressing making it flavorful and irresistible. The Thai salad was certainly spicy, but not enough to burn your taste buds. Generous heapings of shredded carrot, spring onion, red radish, cucumber, fresh mint, and crushed peanuts mixed in with tender beef slices and an Asian dressing made this salad a good choice for someone who wants both healthy ingredients and a kick. The Poke Bowl was the sure winner of the three choices, a packed bowl of steamed white rice, salmon sashimi, avocado slices, edamame, mixed bell peppers, cucumber, carrot, red radish, black & white sesame seeds, crushed peanuts, and soy sauce dressing. Quinoa can be substituted as the base if preferred. This delicious protein punch of a bowl can be eaten and enjoyed any time of the day.
For dessert, we opted for the Dark Chocolate Oat Pancakes – a mixture of flour and oats give Lyfe’s pancakes an advantage in fluffiness and the dark chocolate pairing was heavenly. These pancakes and all of the breakfast items on the menu can be ordered all day long, which gives customers the ability to have breakfast any time of the day. We totally approve!
