As the days get longer and the weather gets warmer, it’s an exciting time in the lead up to the silly season. Not only does it mean lazy days by the pool, summer holidays and beach day trips, but it also means fresh new summer menus at a lot of our favourite places!
We’ve trained hard and eaten clean all year long for this time of year (fingers crossed for that brand new bikini for Xmas), so when these summer menus come out, it’s important to know that they will not undo all your hard work.
Summer is also an amazing time of year to catch-up with every group of friends you have, plus ones included; so big group gatherings are often the norm every weekend at this time of year. If you’ve been put in charge of organising one of these gatherings, you’ll know how hard it is to keep all foodies, health gurus and big eaters happy. Well, listen up, because we have done some pre-research and we think we’ve found the go-to venue that will ensure all your guests happy chappies.
With big communal style table options (there are intimate tables available too) plus a brand new summer menu launching on 1 December, Vapiano Garden City may be the answer to all of your group gathering dreams! While pizza and pasta is their forte – there are gluten free options available, see our past post from their opening for more info – Vapiano Garden City also whip up some mighty fine fresh food and beverages with healthy options including luscious salads – hello Summerama!
It wouldn’t be summer without beetroot, and their Baby beetroot, rocket and feta summer salad comes with beetroot a plenty. With a delicious balsamic vinaigrette, this salad is 100% delicious, and 100% healthy (you get a seriously decent portion size too, so don’t think you’ll be left hungry)!
To pair with your salad, why not opt for Vapiano Garden City’s Strawberry, Lime Cooler mocktail (you can get the alcoholic version if you wish though)? It would be oh-so-refreshing on a summers evening.
*HEALTHY TIP* Request your mocktail be made on soda water instead of lemonade to make a healthy version.
So with options for all, Vapiano Garden City may just be the group lunch/dinner saviour you’ve been wishing for this Summer.
