Today I finally went to this raw vegan restaurant on Main Street in Santa Monica called Rawvolution. Im ssoo glad I went because I had the tastiest food ever! Im very comfortable with eating vegan since its how I grew up but I very new to the whole raw food scene. (I have alot to learn) But I went there totally excited to try out some new things. Plus the Best of Raw awards were being broadcasted from there which was also really fun!
When I got there I was a bit surprised how small the place was. For some reason I was expecting it to be bigger. Although to be honest most places Ive been to on Main Street are very small. Anyways…I was totally loving the wide variety of foods. From pastas to pizzas and even sushi there was a bunch to choose from. It took me forever to decide but I ended up getting the Simplicty Roll and my friend got the Zucchini pasta with sun dried tomato sauce and onion bread. We decided to split since we were having a tough time choosing.
The pasta was ssssooo good. Honestly, a bit better than I was expecting. I was so mad I got full really fast! I just wanted to keep eating! The zucchini had an awesome crunchy texture and the sauce was super flavorful and paired perfectly with the pasta. I was really excited to try the onion bread too. It was very very onion-y but oh so delicious. Very chewy and tasty. I couldn't stop eating it. I was really excited about the onion bread because I keep hearing how awesome it is. And it totally lived up to the hype. (Anyone know how to make this???)
The Simplicity Roll was amazing as well. Daikon, kale, collards and sprouts all wrapped in a gigundo piece of Nori. I've eaten a lot of sushi before but Ive never had a large piece of Nori rolled liked a burrito before. It was a bit fishy smelling right as you start eating but had a completely neutral taste. There was a miso ginger sauce to dip in which was phenomenal. I am so going to have to make Nori rolls a staple in my diet. It was delicious!!!
I really wanted to try dessert but I couldn't fit any more food in. So I HAVE to make a trip back for some dessert soon. I even saw some raw balls on the way out! yey!!
Look at those Balls! Yum!
The awards ceremony was not too bad. We didn't get to stay too long but the opening speeches were very nice. They were having some entertainment before the awards were announced. I gotta say the place was packed. Which was great. Overall it was an awesome night and I cant wait to try more raw foods out!
