A Land beyond time


Walking into Genesis is like walking back into the womb, where it all began. The walls are cushioned in pink, somehow it’s comforting and full of energy at the same time.


The menu pulls inspiration from all over the globe. Even the fries are multicultural: French, Yuca, Kimchi…  It’s the kind of menu that brings about some anxiety as everything looks so. damn. good. We plumped for two different kinds of tacos – Smoked Chorizo with tomatillo salsa, potatoes and Pica de Gallo, and the Taco al Pastor with seitan doner, pineapple salsa, tomatillo sauce, and Cajun dressing. Mouth is watering as I type. We then skipped the entire Noodles, Soups & Salads section of the menu which looked divine but you’ll understand why as we move swiftly to the burger-and-fries town. The Kimchi fries didn’t disappoint dripping in vegan cheese and sriracha mayo. The American Woman burger of creamy coleslaw, BBQ sauce, onion rings, jalapeños and gherkins stacked between a brioche bun was almost too tall to cut in half. What were we thinking? Should have ordered two. We capped off the meal with two Turmeric CBD Bomb Lattes which left us feeling completely zen about gorging ourselves into an abyss.

 We like this place. We guarantee any non-vegans out there will also love it.
