Ms Bean – The vegan dessert haven of the East

23 Sep 2017

This week we’re excited to announce the newest addition to Box Hill Central, Ms Bean.

If you’re looking for a foodie fix that is not only adventurous and delicious, but perhaps even vegan, Ms Bean is going to be your go-to. Ms Bean is currently serving up ice-cream, soy drinks, and organic sweet jelly tofu (all vegan of course) that might encourage you to step out of your flavour comfort zone.

Feeling like something different? Try a Red Bean and Cashew Nut, or Mung Bean, Rock Sugar and Pear Soy Drink. Or alternatively, try some ice cream! With enticing and interesting flavours such as tofu and seaweed, black bean-walnuts and sesame, and even avocado (don’t pretend you don’t want to try it), how can you say no?

Did we mention it’s made specially by a machine that was flown in all the way from Italy? In addition to having an entirely vegan menu, you can enjoy Ms Bean entirely guilt-free as it is also preservative, artificial ingredient, and MSG free.

If you’re looking for something a bit more substantial, the Box Hill Central cheap eat of the week is the $5 spicy prawn soup from Rainbow Chicken. The perfect dish to warm you up during this chilly winter weather!

寒冷冬日,一杯热气腾腾的豆浆下肚,顿时让人倍感舒服!在Box Hill Central——这个东方饮食文化的汇集之地,豆浆似乎随处都能买到,但既好喝又有创意的豆浆店,那就不多见了!

上个月,一家主营豆浆的甜品店——憨豆浆(Ms Bean)正式入驻Box Hill Central,立刻吸引了来往顾客的目光。仔细瞅一眼菜单——红薯、核桃、燕麦、玉米、葡萄干、黑豆、芝麻、红枣、枸杞,这不都是时下热门的养生品吗?怪不得除了喜欢赶时髦的小青年们,大爷大妈也来排队购买!

店主Cathy是一位常年吃素的佛教徒,除了这家憨豆浆,旁边的同福蔬食也是她开的。两家店的开店思路一脉相承:素食、有机、环保。谈到素食和环保,很多人都知道这是当今社会所提倡的生活方式,但谈到有机,了解的人就不多了,有人甚至对这个词存在误解。实际上,有机不是非转基因的意思,而是纯天然的意思,与一般人的印象恰恰相反。与传统食品相比,有机食品在营养和安全方面具有明显优势,有机农业生产体系遵循自给自足的原则,不使用任何外来添加剂,也不制造任何环境污染。

Cathy介绍说,澳洲的有机农场认证标准极为严格,审核时间也十分漫长,能坚持到最后的农场几乎寥寥无几。然而事实证明,从长远来看,有机农场在环境、能源保护和可持续发展方面做出的贡献却是巨大的。由于生产过程中的严格规定及零化学成分的使用,有机食品对于人体健康也是十分有益的。

在设计憨豆浆的菜单时,Cathy因为对五谷杂粮的营养特点谙熟于心,所以一口气搭配出了12种口味,所用原料全是当季新鲜货,从Box Hill Central的菜市场中现买现做。而且这些搭配未来还会根据季节变化随时调整,让人们每次喝都不重样。

谈到憨豆浆店中最受欢迎的甜品,那一定是纯素冰激凌了——你能想象海苔和豆腐也能做成冰激凌吗?味道凉凉的带一点咸,真是吃过一遍就难忘。还有西瓜配豆浆、红豆配杏仁……这一道道纯素冰激凌都是憨豆浆独家的特色产品,制作冰激凌的机器是专门从意大利进口的,也是全部现做现卖。怎么样,是不是很想尝一尝呢?

为了您和家人朋友的身体健康,同时也替澳洲的有机农业发展贡献一份力量,欢迎光临Cathy“仅此一家,绝无分号的憨豆浆小店!
