SPUD Edmonton has partnered with Noorish Cafe! You may recognize that name because recently Noorish has been getting a lot of press: Avenue Magazine named them best vegetarian restaurant in the city, they wonVUE Magazines Golden Fork Award for best salads in the city, and Vitamin Daily included them in their list of the ten best vegetarian restaurants in Canada!
Needless to say, we are beyond thrilled about this partnership. Not only is Noorish Edmonton’s first vegetarian/vegan/raw restaurant, they also have a line of retail superfoods and snacks that will knock your socks off. But that’s not the only cool thing about Noorish. Noorish is a family-owned, community-operated venture created by a trio of siblings who have been passionately immersed in
But that’s not the only cool thing about Noorish. Noorish is a family-owned, community-operated venture created by a trio of siblings who have been passionately immersed in conscious living, holistic health, spiritual evolution and community development within Edmonton and internationally for over a decade. Sheniz, Ayaaz, and Adil were born and raised in Alberta, with ancestral roots that run back through Africa, India, and ancient Persia. To celebrate the rich history of their lineage, they chose the name Noorish which carries within it the root word “noor”, meaning divine light in Arabic.
Each sibling has a deep interest in crafting sustainable communities that value co-creation and honour the earth’s abundance. Having explored more than 70 countries combined, they have cultivated a wealth of cultural wisdom garnered from their experiences volunteering at ecovillages, retreat centres, and organic farms around the world. They now have their own farm that contributes the majority of the produce used in the restaurant through the summer and autumn.
Our partnership with Noorish goes both ways – in addition to offering their retail line for delivery on SPUD.ca, we are also providing them with overripe or bruised bananas for some of their products, such as smoothies and spirulina banana chips.
