In a world where optimization is everything, Miami’s first gastrolab is serving up innovative culinary creations that will not only satisfy your hunger but feature ingredients aimed at helping you detox, giving your metabolism a boost, and improving your mood.
Say hello to Laborejo Restaurant, an all-organic concept geared toward vegans, vegetarians, and pescatarians that's stepping up the healthy eats game — with science.
Inspired by the four elements of nature and promising a full-on sensory experience, Doral’s latest addition crafts dishes designed to provide the body with maximum benefits at a molecular level.
And while they may be branded as a health-food restaurant, don’t expect to find sad kale bowls and bland salads on the menu. Instead, you’ll be treated to everything from pizzas and burgers to tacos, pasta, and sushi that even the most skeptical eaters in your crew will enjoy.
For starters, there’s the Acevichado Roasted Cauliflower, a citrusy and savory delight featuring toasted cauliflower marinated in horseradish, pickled seasonal vegetables, vegan Leche de Tigre, sprouts, and edible flowers and the veggie-packed Chlorophyll made with bok choy, mustard leaves, asparagus, and more. But if you’ve got soup on the mind, their Seaweed Ramen will give you your daily dose of calcium, phosphorus, and potassium.
Main dishes include inventive mash-ups like Pumpkin and Almond Cappelletti, CO2 Smoked Lentils (with the choice to add snapper or salmon), the Beyond Gastro Burger, Avocado Pizza, the list goes on. And we haven’t even gotten to their signature makis, poke bowls, and tiraditos — all offered with both vegan and fish-filled options.
Whatever you do, save room for dessert and prepare to be blown away by indulgent cakes, sorbets, and even cheesecakes that are 100% plant-based.
To wash it all down, you can choose from a selection of juice blends served up in lab beakers and made with specially chosen ingredients meant to give you energy, boost your mood, or reset your body.
With an interior that’s as thoughtfully designed as its menu, Laborejo Restaurant is out to deliver a dining experience you won’t soon forget. And like any true workshop or laboratory, their goal is not only to create but to educate, which is why they go the extra mile to include interesting nutritional facts and details about the ingredients they use throughout their menu.
Even better, they’re open seven days a week from 11:30am to 10pm, so there’s really no excuse to miss out! Just make sure you follow Laborejo on Instagram for up-to-date specials and info their latest experiments.
