The trend for healthy food containing sprouts, beans, kale, avocado on toast, and seeds of all kinds, has not skipped Prishtina, especially in the last two years.
I do like the idea of eating healthy, leading a more virtuous life as it were. However, I find it a bit of a bore. I have tried a couple of places, and while my accomplices were conveying sounds of appreciation, I was left out in the cold.
My colleague’s declaration that we should have a healthy lunch was met by my best eye roll. Nevertheless, as I was outnumbered, and my options were “join”/”not join”, I opted for the former. Another handful of sprouts, kale and chia seeds will not get to me.
True to my words, sprouts, kale and chia did not get me, but a light and tasty Eggs Benedict did. Looking at the menu, Eggs Benedict read as the most non-healthy item I could choose. The place, though, delivered on their concept: they produced a healthy version of the dish, in the exact quantity to enjoy the taste without overdoing it. A lovely, light, lemony Hollandaise, lean smoked luncheon meat, and perfectly hard-poached egg! I know, but I can’t stand runny eggs. The girl who served us was wonderful too — she immediately understood my dislike for runny eggs and made sure the kitchen new. Service at its best. If you are still thinking if you should – check out that menu.
