As every traveller knows: Utrecht Centraal is one big food paradise. Walking here is like one big temptation and it is hard to resist all the different food stands. Smullers, The Döner Company, Burger King.. the list is long but all are quite unhealthy. Luckily KAUAI decided to open up shop in Utrecht. So move over unhealthy fast food: with KAUAI something nice to eat, to stay fit and healthy (for the holidays to come)!

South-Africa inspired food at KAUAI
If you have never heard of KAUAI before I won’t blame you. This marks the first time that this restaurant opens up a location in Europe. The concept store is originally from South-Africa and is specialized in serving healthy, quick and fresh meals. They have all types of bowls, smoothies and wraps and – all time favorite – an all day breakfast. One of my favorites is the Butta Chicken Bowl: a blend of chicken curry, pumpkin, rice and quinoa. Healthy but also comforting food to me! 

Take-away smoothies and coffee
Moreover the drinks are great! I have to admit that I am consuming a lot of take-away coffee and juices in Utrecht. The freshly made smoothies as KAUAI are a real treat! I always opt for their Citrus Glo smoothie with chia seeds and collageen. Zipping a smoothie while working on a beautiful skin: I’m hooked!


Have you met..Maaike? Maaike is a 20 something year old Utrecht based master student in Amsterdam. After some time as a content marketeer she decided to take the plunge, so since January 2017 she’s back to being a fulltime student with a parttime job. But even with a tight budget Utrecht is just as much enjoyable! This busy bee is always on the move and has a nose for cheap but nice places to visit in Utrecht.
