FREA: HEAVENLY CHOW WITH A CLEAN CONSCIENCE

FREA: HEAVENLY CHOW WITH A CLEAN CONSCIENCE

At David Johannes Suchy and Jasmin Martin’s restaurant, Frea, everything is just perfect – from the tranquil atmosphere to the attentive staff, not to mention the seasonal and plant-based dishes that Halfdan Kluften (former Silo Brighton chef) prepares. They taste simply divine, often thanks to the full-flavoured vegetable stock used. Everything on the menu is homemade: the superb sourdough bread served with kimchi as an hors d’oeuvre; the luscious wild garlic dip with roasted vegetables; the fresh pasta with pumpkin and cress or wild herb salad with crispy Jerusalem artichoke; and last but not least, the sweet tangerine sorbet with carrot cake. It is a winning concept both gastronomically and with its zero waste agenda. Frea is the first vegan restaurant in the world that does not produce any waste. Here, plastic packaging has no chance. Everything biodegradable goes into the composting machine. The stylish interior furnishings – tables, chairs, lamps, even the plants – are all second-hand too. Frea proves that it’s fully possible to blend delicious cuisine with sustainability. (Text: Nella Beljan / Photos: Mina Aichhorn)
