Though just two months old, Huh Natural & Real Food is not the first venture of Christina Kisner and Sebastian Gracey. They are pretty involved in all that is healthy eating and gluten-free options. In fact, Christina just released a book about it: “Mi Cocina Saludable”.
As Sebastian told us that day, their journey into healthy food began when they discovered that their second daughter was gluten intolerant. Ever since, Christina has worked hard trying to come up with ideas that can feed not only their daughter but the whole family.
Eventually, they began advising companies and introducing a few gluten-free products into the market that then led to the need for a place where people could go and enjoy healthy food on-the-go.
With almost 80% of their products being organic and plenty of gluten-free, vegan and vegetarian options on the menu (along with some animal protein, as well), their little cafe is a winner. They are so committed to offering you a full gluten-free option that their produce is sent to a lab to be tested to make sure there is not contamination in any of it.
Bagels, Bagels, and Bagels! At Huh Natural & Real Food you can have bagels—yummy, healthy bagels. They are made with quinoa and kiwicha and there are 3 options: the classic, the green one, and the purple one.
We started lunch with the Bagel Peruano (21.90 soles). The bagel is made with spinach, which makes it green. The bagel was filled with country ham, a cheese of three chilies (made with nuts so it is vegan and lactose-free), some tomatoes, pickled cucumbers, and sprout onions. It’s their version of a butifarra, which is a popular sandwich in Peru. I really liked it. The flavors worked well together and the vegan cheese was delicious.
Next we had the Curry Bagel (21.90 soles). This bagel was made with purple corn, so it was a purple bagel. I am loving how purple corn is being featured in cooking in more ways than just chicha and mazamorra. The bagel was filled with a vegan and lactose-free curry cheese, chicken, coriander, spinach, rocket, mango and some sprouts. It was my favorite, as I adore coriander and rocket. The mango and the curry cheese give it a Thai flavor.
At Huh Natural & Real Food, you can indulge your sweet tooth, as all of their desserts are yummy and healthy. We tried 4 of them and it was hard to choose a winner, as all of them were delicious.
Along with the food, we had a taste of each of the cheeses that Huh Natural & Real Food offers on their bagels, sandwiches and to buy in take-away containers. You can have them as cheese or as dips. We tasted them with some of the delicious crackers they also sell in little tubs. You definitely have to try the garlic and oregano (12 soles) and the vegan (12 soles).
All of the cheeses have a base of cashews, which makes them vegan.
There is a variety of healthy choices from smoothies and superpower juices to delicious coffees and chai.
At the end of the meal, I was really satisfied. Although the bagels are not that big, they are made with complex carbohydrates and low GI products that help you feel full for longer. I didn’t feel hungry until really late that day.
