I had the best time in Chicago- what a beautiful city.. and it helps when you spend time with beautiful souls too :) SO I had to check out Chicago Raw for lunch the one day we spent time in the city. The had so many options it took me 15 minutes to decide what I wanted. I always try to get a dessert too so I ended up choosing the raw burrito and a raw carrot cake. I have to mention though, their smoothies and juices looked incredible and so did the salads, raw pizzas etc. Everything really. So I can't wait to go back and try more things!
The burrito was wrapped in collards and it was filled with shredded carrots and a nut pate that had perfect Mexican flavours! It also came with a beautiful guacamole, pico de gallo and a "sour cream" made from nuts. It was incredible, but very rich. A lot of raw food is very rich when using lots of nut based ingredients. Still absolutely delicious!
YUM! It took me another 10 minutes do decide on a dessert, but I am a sucker for chai, carrot anything like that! The carrot cake was amazing! Creamy, smooth, with good flavour! Loved it at Chicago Raw and everything they are about. I can't wait to go back and try more! :D
