Respond to Review of Crudessence - Rachel West
Review: I've been to Crudessence a couple of times. Each times i was with my boyfriend and we got to taste a lot of items, and were pleased with what we got. We tried their pizza, pasta, and lasagna, which are all basically made with vegetables, zucchinis, marinara sauce and cashew cheese. If you're not used to raw food, do not expect those to taste like the real thing. I found that the flavors were nicely put together. We also tried to 'Om' Burger and we enjoyed it as well. All the main courses comes with sprouts, greens and dressings, and the portions are big enough to fill you up. I fell in love with their smoothies and will have to go back to try some more. The mix of kale, mint, almond milk and cayenne pepper totally made it for me. Another hit was the miso soup with goji berries in it. Lovely idea! The desserts are always good ( especially the avocado lime pie ) and they have intersting breakfast crepes, too. It is a really small place, be warned about that. There is about 4 tables to sit, but you can order food to take out. The service is quick and the place is quiet, we felt confortable sitting there. They sell books and raw products too, like those amazing raw truffles. It can be expensive to eat there : but you pay for real, unprocessed food, rich in vitamins and enzymes. Also, portions are satisfying, plates are big and food is filling. I'll be back when i can!
