The Vegan Food
There are two restaurants to chose from; ‘Five’ is the main restaurant where breakfast is served but there is also ‘Fresh’, right next to the pool and near the beach where you can get a whole selection of vegan food, juices and even a little bit of inspiration from the giant posters with inspirational quotes hanging on the walls.
Because everything is so laid back at Fusion Maia, guests are also invited to take breakfast at any time and at any place, a service that reflects the relaxed atmosphere at the resort.
Definitely not your ordinary cereal bar
Breakfast gave us the opportunity to get creative with all the exciting ingredients at the DIY cereal bar. We’re not talking standard stuff here either; think puffed organic brown rice, sunflower seeds with rose and ground up flax seeds to go with fresh fruit, dried fruit and soya milk.
The salad bar was equally exciting with a different selection each day, again tied into whatever chakra was the theme of the day. We ate raw noodles made from carrots and courgettes, tomatoes flavoured with basil, green beans and peas with sesame. But it was the sprinkles that really took our DIY salads to the next level with ‘cashew and paprika’ adding a seriously spicy hit and ‘miso, spirulina and sesame’ giving us some green power to start our day. We finished them off with a selection of dressings including watermelon and mint, smoked ginger and a garlicky, green courgette hummus.
The staff also prepared some extra dishes for us with a delicious, healthy, tofu packed Vietnamese pho and a vegetable and tofu stir fry making sure that (in addition to all the fresh juices, coffee and fruit available) we were full to the brim of fresh vegan food every morning.
