As the world progresses to a more health conscious state of mind where people are becoming increasingly concerned with what they eat, the healthy food market is booming. Focused on fresh, unprocessed food served in smaller portions, consumers are taking greater care when choosing where to dine and what to eat.
With this in mind, a number of food service providers have chosen to start preparing meals that meet consumers’ portion and kilojoule count requirements, and more importantly, have begun serving healthy food that actually has a good flavour and taste.
Mezepoli Tapas & Wine Bar is one such establishment that knows just how to add a burst of crisp, healthy flavour to all their meals, which their customers can enjoy in style at either of their on-trend restaurants in Camps Bay and Melrose Arch.
Since its establishment in 2009, Mezepoli’s customers have been treated to the finest Mediterranean meals made from the freshest produce, served in ample and appetising portions. . Mixed with their carefully selected paired wines, this restaurant boasts a vivacious atmosphere that forms part of their exclusive brand.
Aside from their freshness, Mezepoli offers their customers a variety of portion controlled meals consisting of meze (starter portions), tapas and sushi dishes that will satisfy any palette. Tapas or ‘little plates’ of food that can easily be shared are popular as these create an atmosphere of sharing where conversation leads the dining experience. This picture of guilt free indulgence is completed by sustainably-sourced vegetables to create simplicity and endorse wellbeing, which the Mediterranean menu is known for.
“The Mediterranean diet has been a hot topic for a while, with many food lovers choosing to indulge in it due to health benefits. By eating fresh food we allow ourselves the benefits of vitamins and minerals that are essential to human health,” says Angelo Haitas, owner of Mezepoli.
Scientific research studies indicate that phytochemicals available in natural produce are more effective in disease prevention than extra-large doses of single vitamin supplements. In its natural state, produce offers maximum fibre and nutrients that have proven to reduce the risk of suffering from heart disease and cancer while even reducing the chances of contracting Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s disease.
“I strongly believe in preserving my health above all and for this reason I only consume the best. I want the same for my customers, which is why the food served at Mezepoli needs to add to their wellbeing. All the meze we offer at Mezepoli are based on the Mediterranean diet, with healthy additions from other countries such as tapas from Spain and sushi from Japan. All in all a well-rounded representation of wholesome food with a lot of flavour,” continues Haitas.
“We also offer the other component of the Mediterranean diet: enjoying your food with friends and family, with the shared dining experiencing allowing for enjoyment without overindulging. Good company and guilt-free food – who wouldn’t want to stay for as long as possible?”
