Better yet, is there anything better than Laksa at Mad Mango after yoga class? I seriously doubt it. Mad Mango has become a Kelowna institution over the last 10 years, serving incredibly tasty food that is fast, healthy and very easy on the wallet. Their best selling dish by far is the ever popular Laksa soup. Laksa is a popular spicy noodle soup from the Peranakan culture, which is a merger of Chinese and Malay elements found in Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore, and at Mad Mango they have it perfected. I don’t know about you, but when I finish a yoga class at The Hot Box Yoga I’m literally starving to death, so rather than fill my belly with a convenient 1000 calorie Triple ‘O’ burger, it’s much healthier to skip down the street for a bowl of soup. Although the restaurant is often packed and difficult to find a table (which is part of the fun), your patience will be rewarded when your spicy soup arrives. And if you want to kick things up a notch, try dipping the Roti (Malaysian pancake) into your soup! If you end up overdosing on the addictive Laksa, there are alternatives… Try the Hong Kong breakfast. Yum! And if you’re not worried about the extra calories, wash down the Laksa with a peanut butter & banana shake. It’s a guaranteed food coma & you’ll have to have a 3 hour afternoon nap, but it’s totally worth it. Besides, you can always head back to yoga the next day to ease your conscience.

 

Mad Mango is located at 551 Bernard Ave in Kelowna, BC. Service and food are excellent!
