Respond to Review of Rawlicious - Guelph
by hilarityensues

Review: To be honest, I only came here for take away lunch because the Wild Organic Way Cafe just a few stores down shut down, and I didn't know! :( Too bad. The service at Rawlicious was friendly, helpful, and very gracious and apologetic as they were a little busy. I understand when you eat out you pay for convenience and atmosphere, but I was shocked at what my total came to. As a frequent home cooker I felt I would rather put in the effort to recreate the same dishes for significantly less cost and way more flavour. I munched on their Cheesy Kale Chips while waiting for my order (Pretty tasty and moderately good value!), I got the Tropical Green Smoothie (watery, bland, only tasted banana), Spring Rolls with 'Tangy' Thai dipping sauce (spring rolls tasted just like julienne veg with cilantro and that's it, thai sauce was okay but very mild), Don’t be Chicken Sandwich (taste was better, my favourite of the bunch, but on the small side for the price, VERY sticky with an alfalfa sprouts overdose and a little difficult to swallow), and a side salad with tahini garlic dressing (basic spring mix with a table spoon each of onion and tomato, dressing had a nice zip). Obviously I was pretty hungry :P so I was really disappointed when my total came to $45 and upon returning home and eating I was not only underwhelmed by most of the flavours, but also not completely satiated by the portions given. I may give them the benefit of the doubt and partially attribute the parts I found dissatisfying to the fact that A) It was take away, and B) it was about an hour or so between purchasing the food and my actual eating of it. I would be willing to try them again, except maybe actually dining in, and having some extra splurge money to foot the bill.
