Long a favourite among Hong Kong’s health-conscious, Genie Juicery started as a juice detox delivery program run by a couple of certified health coaches from the school of Integrative Nutrition. Since then, the brand has expanded to a brick and mortar location at the IFC, and now they’ve added more than 30 delicious and healthy dishes and snacks to go with your juice fix.
Highlights of the new menu include the Oaxaca Bowl (pictured above) which is a vibrant assembly of red onion, sweet potato, red bell pepper, crunchy pecans, filling black beans, avocado, lettuce and red cabbage, all dressed in an invigorating dressing made with cumin, smoked paprika and maple syrup.
For sushi fans, the new Veggie Sushi is a carb-light take on the traditional Japanese maki roll – dried seaweed packed with julienned carrots, celery, romaine lettuce and yellow pickled daikon as well as a selection of fresh herbs. We love to grab one of these as a light lunch or mid-afternoon snack.
If you are looking for something a bit more filling, try the Vegan Pesto Quinoa Bowl which features organic quinoa piled high with butternut squash, shiitake mushrooms, red onions, rocket, homemade dairy-free pesto, cinnamon and a splash of olive oil. This dish provides all of the comfort of a cheat-day dish without any of the guilt.
Genie Juicery hasn’t forgotten those of us with sweet tooth. Their Vegan Rocky Road is a bite-sized treat chock-full of vegan gummies, vegan marshmallows, freeze-dried raspberries, peanuts, peanut butter and raw chocolate.
Of course, Genie Juicery is staying true to their roots and offering a selection of juices as a part of the impressive new range. The striking Blue Moon is made from raw fresh coconut water and superfood blue spiralina whereas the Blood Orange is a blend of carrot, pineapple, pear, lemon, orange, beetroot and cleansing ginger.
Another thing we love about Genie Juicery is their commitment to the environment. They are aiming for a circular/no waste approach to running their business. As such, the bottles are glass and returnable and there’s no plastic packaging in sight – a trend we hope to see catch on all over Hong Kong!
