Honey & Dough meal offerings include dishes that are vegan, vegetarian and raw which are delicious
On the seventh floor of the newly opened One Africa Place building on the corner of Waiyaki way and Rhapta road, is a one of a kind restaurant, in fact, the first of its kind for vegan, vegetarian and raw food enthusiasts.
Honey and Dough, stylized H+D, is a modern gourmet café that offers multi-cuisine food and boasts dishes such as butter chicken and top sirloin steak which are gluten-free and a dessert simply called the no-bake chocolate cake which contains no flour, no dairy, no sugar and no eggs.
If you’ve just read that and thought, “that doesn’t sound tasty at all”, then you wouldn’t be further from the truth. The trick H+D use is to make all their food palatable, appetising and tasty whether it’s vegetarian/vegan or not. Their key goal is to provide healthy food, using fresh and healthy ingredients while offering a variety of options for everyone.
The décor is the first thing you notice when you walk into Honey and Dough. The interior possesses an eclectic design with accents of rose gold that give the whole space a refined look. The H+D table arrangement offers a place for family gatherings, dinner parties, romantic dinners and tables cosy enough for a solitary meal while you work.
If you’re looking to drop by for a morning or mid-morning meeting, here are our tried and tested selections for you.
NB: For a full low-down on what went on during our morning tasting, check out our stories here.
The brewed drink
For your first drink of the day, order the fresh vanilla café latte with almond milk. It’s so creamy and delicious even without any sugar and it comes with a gluten-free cookie.
The smoothie bowl
We recommend the açaí bowl which contains banana, açaí, homemade peanut butter, fresh fruit, chia and granola seeds. It’s a cool, deliciously refreshing smoothie to have on a warm day that will give you all the energy you need to get through the day.
We have five recommendations;
The English breakfast – Are you a big fan of eggs, sausage, bacon and toast? If the answer is yes, then this is the choice of your dreams. It also comes with a bowl of baked beans and roasted cherry tomatoes.
The chicken dosa – Looking for spicy chicken-filled deliciousness? Order the masala chicken wrapped in a crispy rice pancake.
The chickpea omelette – No, the omelette in this title doesn’t refer to eggs of any kind. Although the consistency of the dish might be fluffy enough to fool you, we guarantee it’s just chickpea flour batter filled with mustard, garlic, mushrooms & cherry tomatoes with a touch of turmeric & paprika.
Vegan pancakes – It might not sound delicious but take our word for it, paired with the cashew vanilla cream, maple syrup and topped with strawberries, it is mouth-watering.
French Toast – Freshly baked brioche bread soaked in eggs & milk then fried with a drizzle of cinnamon & butter.
Once you’re done and positively brimming with energy, wash it all down with the peach iced tea.
