Mi Vida Café
If you are looking for an organic, orgasmic experience for your taste buds, you need look no further than Mi Vida Café. Located in the trendy Mimo District just north of the Design District (right off Biscayne and 70th Street) you will find this beautiful, quaint vegan restaurant. Do not fear that there isn’t enough space indoors! There is a spacious, colorful, relaxing garden out back with eclectic pieces of outdoor furniture and soothing music to fill your ears.
Owner Daniela La Gamma was a very successful private chef before fulfilling her dream of offering her healthy, filling, animal product free cuisine to all. Raised in Argentina, she brings some of her Latin flavored dishes to the vegan menu.
Prices are reasonable considering that the products are all natural, juices freshly squeezed (literally right before your eyes,) and she uses no cheap shortcuts. Chef La Gamma has NO microwave in her restaurant, NO frying, NO preservatives, NO genetically modified ingredients and absolutely no High Fructose Corn Syrup. You can check the menu out at www.mividacafe.net.
Do you like delicious tacos? They have the vegan versions! Maybe you are in the mood for tasty “chicken” marsala? They have a version made with seitan (a meat substitute.) Is pizza your thing? Try their colorful, raw asparagus/pesto pizza! My absolute FAVORITE is the vegan mushroom sloppy joe. In addition they have fresh salads, eggplant a italiana, and grilled chimichurri (seitan) you will be in vegan HEAVEN. Chef LaGamma also has yummy homemade cookies, pies and ice pops for desert. Eat up!
If you want to give your body a healthy treat, make sure to stop by Mi Vida Café or check them out online and support this wonderful change of pace for the city of Miami. Your soul will feel guilt-free knowing that you are giving your body the absolute best nutrients and saving an animal’s life at the same time.
