Food Trends For 2020
Global food trends have shown a general change in direction regarding food choices. These trends show a definitive turn towards a healthier way of living and eating.
Whether it be fewer carbs and more protein or choosing a plant-based diet, people are becoming far more conscious of what they put into their bodies.
As one of the best restaurants in Port Elizabeth, it is our duty to ensure that we provide exciting menu options for all our diners.
Below are some of the most trending food choices happening globally. So, if you are a natural-born foodie who is looking to jump on the train of food trends for 2020, here is your guideline:
Hummus in particular is fast becoming an absolute necessity with every meal. People are putting it on their toast, adding it to their snack platters and using it on their burgers.
As chickpeas are the main ingredient in hummus, it is naturally packed with protein and pure deliciousness. It’s also really versatile and people are trying various infusions such as caramelised onion, roasted beetroot, and toasted seeds; some have even made chocolate hummus dessert.
Tapas and sharing boards are also a common food choice inspired by Mediterranean cuisine. Visit The Yellow Door to enjoy some of our amazing tapas and sharing boards!
Some people have gone full keto while others are trying to reduce their carbohydrate intake wherever possible.
In recent years, low-carb diets were mostly bland and boring. However, as this becomes one of the biggest trends followed around the world, the options have become far more exciting.
To accommodate the carb-conscious diner, we have added banting pizza bases as an option for all our pizzas and zucchini noodles to replace your pasta.
Plant-Based Milk Alternatives
Plant-based milk has become extremely popular, even among individuals who consume other dairy products.
However, with more people choosing the vegan way of life, plant milk has replaced their dairy counterpart in many areas from coffee and breakfast cereals to sauces and desserts.
We provide almond milk as an alternative for any warm beverage on our menu. Use it in your cappuccino, café latte or rooibos tea.
