Mundos’ Avocado Bowl

By Lynda Wheatley | April 3, 2021

Few things have been as life-altering to us Mac-wielding creative types as the shutdown of in-house eating and coffee meeting at so many of our beloved local coffee shops. Thanks be to Traverse City’s Mundos then, which has kept our still-homebased staff buzzed up, fed, and safe from going stir crazy.
Its sun-lit, greenery-filled, and mega-spacious space just off Woodmere — made greener by a recent foray into selling stylish houseplants in hand-poured concrete pots — is good for the soul and, it turns out, the body.

Case in point: Mundos’ Avocado Bowl ($11.75). Petite but filling, this savory breakfast brought together, atop a just-right-sized bed of brown rice, the healthy protein and choline of two poached eggs, the good fats (and flavor) of several spotless green avocado slices, and the nutritional triple powerhouses of pickled cabbage and onions, kale, and tomatoes.

For a hot minute, we worried it might not be enough to see us through until lunch — it was Sunday brunch, after all — but we’re delighted to report that we worked the computer til noon then powered through a hike at Empire Bluffs that afternoon and didn’t feel hungry until well after 4pm. Unfortunately, we were hungry for another Avocado Bowl at Mundos, which was two counties over and, by then, closed.
