If you have a commitment to healthy, fresh dining, Flavory Bistro should be your first stop. It’s a favorite in The District at Prairie Trail in Ankeny.
Flavory Bistro is based on the freshness of Mediterranean dining. Hector and Lisa Morales opened it in 2016. Now, the restaurant has a vast and loyal following that reveres it for its quality from-scratch cuisine. As Chef Lisa likes to say, “Fresh and good is so good for you!” Diners have come to expect a flavorful feast from the hands of Chef Lisa. She learned her craft from her Belgrade-born family.
The warm bistro is quaint, calming and quiet. An experience for the soul as well as the palate. It features vegan, vegetarian, and gluten-free menu offerings. It has been voted the #1 Healthiest Restaurant by the Ankeny Chamber of Commerce.
Flavory Bistro Brings the Fresh
It’s not exaggerating to say the dishes are a feast for the eyes. They feature a variety of vibrant colors that are presented beautifully. The menu includes Sunrise breakfast items featuring cage-free eggs, like a Feta Scramble or Rustic Panini of eggs, feta, roasted peppers and beef bacon. There are appetizers, salads, and to-die for homemade soups. There are gyros and paninis, and a deep bench of shareables. For example, a Mediterranean Platter featuring homemade hummus and Seafood Paella of scallops, jumbo shrimps and the like. Dinner staples include everything from Lamb seasoned in Lisa’s secret spices to Filet of Wild Salmon and Shrimp Alfredo.
Make sure you try a side of Lisa’s Homemade Cheese! It’s like nothing you’ve ever had before! Wrap up your meal with Baklava or one of Lisa’s special extra-healthy cookies.
Flavory Bistro is open from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. and 5 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday.
