I usually distinguish healthy and tasty food, as my experience says these two can hardly be achieved simultaneously. So I was very happy to break the stereotype while enjoying dinner at “Na Parah” – a steamed cuisine chain of restaurants in St.Petersburg which promises 100% healthy food without any frying or oil.
First of all, the menu was quite long: various salads, soups, meat and fish and most surprisingly – plenty of desserts with different healthy drinks like squeezed juices, smoothies as well as not-so-healthy alcoholic drinks. There were also a lot of different dressings to accompany the main dishes, but I did not need them as the steamed cuisine there was so delicious by itself that there was no need at all for any dressing to make it additionally tasty.
The interior is light green and very modern with a motto saying “we are making healthy food tasty”, which is realised 100%. The prices are very democratic, and there is another benefit to having lunch or dinner there: they are open 24 hours daily to ensure that you can eat 100% healthy food around the clock.
I enjoyed my salad with beef stake, beef tongue with carrot mash and carrot cake with sea buckthorn tea (on the photo) and I am looking forward to my next visit.
