Origen, San Pedro, Marbella
35-45 euros for two

This place was definitely needed after the craziness from the night before! San Pedro is in a perfect location, just 10km outside of the glitz, glamour and hedonism of Puerto Banus, allowing you to dip in and out of the madness!

Nikki Beach did not disappoint but once back at our apartment I was glad to be far from the madding crowd. My friend had been raving about this little café, and she had every right to be.

It felt like we had stumbled onto an oasis of goodness, yumminess and friendliness. The service was smiley and our waiter talked us through the various options on the menu, whilst we downed our green juices.

The menu was small but perfectly formed, the options fit nicely on to one side of the page. Split into three sections ‘Good morning’, ‘Carry on eating’ and ‘Appetizer. I started with the ‘seasonal fruit with honey, chia seeds, hemp and yogurt’. It was just what I needed to put some colour back in my cheeks and restore balance.

The corn taco’s filled with organic chicken was to die for. The freshness of the guacamole, the perfectly cooked chicken in a tomato sauce brought together in a crunchy taco was doing a samba in my mouth! The first five minutes consisted of no talking just moans of delight, then a light bulb moment as my bestie had the genious idea to sample the organic wine, well it would have been rude not too…when in Rome or should I say Marbella…
