Vegetarians rejoice! Soneva Fushi Opens its Latest Dining Outlet: Shades of Green, a plant-based restaurant.
Luxury resort Soneva in the Maldives has opened Soneva Fushi’s newest dining outlet, Shades of Green. It is located in the resort’s organic garden, with the concept and menu created by Carsten Kyster, a Danish chef who has worked alongside Jamie Oliver at the River Café and Peter Gordon at The Sugar Club in London. Chef Carsten wants to tap into the global movement that places an emphasis on fresh, organic, and local produce as being important for a healthy lifestyle, while also being a climate-conscious choice in keeping with Soneva’s values.
The menu celebrates the garden and the season revolving around colours (red, green, yellow), green umami (the fifth basic taste) or around one vegetable prepared in multiple ways. Each menu has six courses with dishes falling under cleansing, crispy, raw, grain, fire and sweet. There will also be a cold press of the day, flavoured lemonade, fragranced iced tea, and cocktails. Examples of menu items include aloe vera nam jim, red quinoa porridge, and screw pine fruit lemonade.
