At first, you will think ‘it is a fruit and vegetable extract, I drink similar drinks almost daily, and from now on I will drink them here as well’. Then will come the turn of zucchini spaghetti with pesto, of the salad with a lot of ripe avocado, of shitake crackers, of red granola (activated buckwheat, strawberries, sunflower seeds, hemp seeds, medjool dates, cold-pressed red-turnip juice, cold-pressed lemon juice), and of vegan cookies. One day a week will become a Raw day and you will read read read about raw foods. All of this thanks to Mantra. Add a neutral and pastel-coloured room where you will love to spend your time, and light and easy-going music. Start frequenting Mantra! Buy snacks at the corner shop, ask questions, and be curious, since it happens here in Milan, as if you were in Santa Monica, California.
