It’s hard to believe that we opened the doors of Mama Gaia’s first location at Crosstown Concourse one year ago! Our first year of business as Memphis’ first and only organic vegetarian restaurant taught us a lot. We learned healthy food options were desired by many and developed ways to educate the community about fresh, good-for-you foods because Mama Gaia is a place for all. We learned what people loved about our food and how we could improve to better meet customers’ needs. In honor of our anniversary, let’s take a look at the menu items that proved to be most popular!
Smokehouse Veggie Burger
We’re all about respecting your cravings. This organic veggie burger can easily satisfy your tummy grumbles! You can’t go wrong with our house-made vegan patty, roasted garlic aioli, smoked onion, four cheese blend and vegan wheat bun. Not only is this dish delicious, it’s guilt-free and won’t leave you feeling super sluggish after the fact. This is heaven! (Insider tip: Because customers raved about our veggie burgers so much, we’re now offering veggie burger sliders at our Ballet Memphis location. Enjoy!)
Seize the day with this beautiful vegan pita that’s overflowing with heaps of sesame-crusted tofu, asian slaw, cilantro and our special (and secret!) Mama Gaia sauce. We love seeing customers join the happy plate club when they order this crazy good plant-based dish! The pita version is what guests typically go for, but we also offer this flavorful mashup as a quinoa bowl or salad.
Copia means abundance or plenty, and when you order the Copia Bowl, that’s exactly what you’ll get. Check out this delightful bowl that’s packed with a generous portion of quinoa, organic oven-roasted veggies, olive-basil sauce (YUM!) and parmesan. Vegan? Just tell us to hold the parmesan and you’re good to go!
Ginger Mango Green Tea Smoothie
The perfect refresher? We’ve got it right here. Our Ginger Mango Green Tea Smoothie features hints of lemon and agave nectar that will leave you coming back for more. To make this beverage even sweeter, green tea has AMAZING health benefits. After a few sips of this, don’t be surprised if you feel rejuvenated and a less stressed!
Hand-cut Baked Potato Wedges
Our baked, hand-cut potato wedges have always been a hit, especially when they’re paired with our organic ketchup or organic sriracha. These crispy, organic bites are also the perfect compliment to any of our pitas, quinoa bowls or veggie burgers. Bon appetit!
With one year of business and two locations under our belts, we are looking forward to another wonderful year of providing crazy good dishes with the freshest ingredients possible to people from all walks of life. We hope you’ll come see us soon at Crosstown or Ballet Memphis to fuel up. Your body and planet Earth will thank you for it!
