So what does “The Alchemy” mean?
“Alchemy means transformation for the better, towards a healthier lifestyle”, explained Mrs Low the proud owner of the restaurant. This applies to everyone who enters the place. The aim is to transform everyone who comes here to try the food into a healthier person. To get them to think about their lifestyle, the choices they make, the exercise they do and look at ways to improve their overall well being. It’s not all about the food. It’s also how you treat your body and the respect you give it. I know this sounds all very ‘spiritual’ but remember you are in Ubud and there are heaps of yoga studios nearby.
Wholesome & very healthy food for everyone
One of the biggest issues that The Alchemy faces is the perception of vegan food. Most people shudder when you tell them that you are going vegan or are eating at a vegan restaurant. They think it’s tasteless, boring and bland. But, The aim of The Alchemy is to turn those perceptions around and create an exciting buzz when it comes to eating healthy, fresh and delicious vegan food. You really don’t have to be a complete vegan to enjoy vegan dishes. Try the moth watering salads and you will see what we mean they are amazing. The Alchemy is so popular and doing so well in Ubud that they have now opened up their second restaurant in Seminyak right next door to the popular Potato Head. Now everyone can enjoy eating this fab vegan dishes.
