Revive is one of my favourite lunch places in Auckland’s CBD. I have been coming here for about five years now and I love their delicious vegetarian salads, dahl, curries, soups and many other dishes! Here is a taste of what you might find on their menu:
– Revive Raw Salad with beetroot, carrot and mint
– Israeli Couscous with pumpkin, homemade aioli and green beans (I am not a pumpkin fan, but this salad makes it surprisingly taste good!)
– Moroccan tagine with chickpeas on brown rice
– Leek and feta frittata with potato and free range eggs
– Mexican ‘not chicken’ and bean stew on brown rice… and so much more!
Revive also sells smoothies and great lunch box snacks which you can purchase at the counter – their bliss balls are moorish! And, if you fancy recreating Revive’s dishes at home, the owner, Jeremy Dixon, has released five cookbooks, which you can purchase from Revive’s online website or in most bookstores.
Revive has two branches – Lorne Street (their original store) and one on Wyndham Street. Personally, I prefer the latter because there is more seating and the atmosphere is great! Both stores are also open till 7pm Monday to Thursday, making it not only a great lunch spot, but a healthy dinner option before a show or movie too!
Note: They now have new eco-friendly packaging, which is used for dine in and take out. Also, click here to sign up to Revive’s newsletter, which you will receive each week. There is a recipe and great tips for living a healthy lifestyle. You will also receive printable $4 off vouchers – bonus!
I always feel good after I have eaten at Revive, which is why I eat there at least once a week!
Lorne Street and Wyndham Street, Auckland
