Hit Holi in North Miami Beach for Fast Casual Eats
Forget fast food — fast casual is where it’s at these days. Nobody’s fooled by McDonald’s “meat” anymore; discerning diners want affordable bites that are quick, nutritious, and palate-pleasing.
And now, Holi Vegan Kitchen is bringing that trifecta to North Miami Beach.
Dreamed up by two dedicated vegan couples, the hip, airy eatery is all about familiar foods made with nutrient-dense, cruelty-free ingredients. The menu was created in collaboration with Chef Mark Reinfeld — known for his crowd-pleasing and contemporary cuisine.
Open since the end of June, the already-popular spot serves breakfast, lunch, dinner — and tapas, and the menu boasts innovative items like a pesto garden scramble, sweet potato hash, bagels with cream cheese, black bean and brown rice burritos, Caesar salad, jerk tempeh panini with chipotle mayo, white bean “tuna” salad sandwich, caprese flatbread pizzetta, bowls, soups, desserts, and more.
Popular options include the scrambled “eggs” (said to be the city’s best), pancakes, the jerk tempeh panini, and the burger.
Omnivores are the bulk of Holi’s customers, says co-owner Laura Ramonda, so this is food that appeals to everyone. “They say they are feeling full even if the meal has no meat,” she explains.
In addition, Holi is a hot choice for tapas and wine. People pair light bites like bruschetta and empanadas with vegan wines made by Ramonda’s father’s in Argentina. Vegan wines aren’t easy to find, adds Ramonda, as winemakers aren’t forced to disclose all ingredients.
“My father makes them and he lives in the winery I can be sure that what I’m selling is vegan and people are so happy about that.”
Holi is also delivering via Uber Eats, so your mouthwatering dinner can be dropped at your doorstep. The restaurant will be on site at Seed in November, too, so you can try their colorful cuisine at the Tasting Village.
Whether you’re plant-based or all-omnivore, Holi is your holy grail for fresh, satisfying eats.
