The heart of San Gwann is evolving into a rich, diverse center for cuisine. The Hungry Hippie, a recent addition to this community, stands out by offering an all-day collection of vegan and contemporary takes on eating out. A light and airy bistro with an upper mezzanine for larger parties and a ground floor with tables and a side booth for quick snacking. There’s also an outside hatch to the bar allowing for street side ordering. A full bar, international wines and various craft beers are available.
Catering throughout the day, breakfast here is a must. Eggs Benedict or scrambled, waffles with chicken and maple syrup constitute an excellent start, whatever the time. Try the sweet sticky pork ribs or fried creamy goat’s cheese with walnuts, both exceptional starters. A great selection of crispy fried clams, calamari or octopus also tantalize. Original pasta main courses have great vegetarian options. An authentic Carbonara stands out however as distinctly Roma. Beef Tagliata, Argentinian grain fed rib-eyes, spare-ribs and Barbary duck also compete with the meat options. The lentil and hummus salad is a very tasty vegan alternative. Contemporary juicy burgers and a wide selection of available extras secures that perfect bite. Daily desserts, cakes and brownies to top off a great experience. All dishes are beautifully presented and garnished with love. Overall, this is great value, exceptional choice and with great staff.
