Respond to Review of RAWvolution
Review: I have a copy of Matt's Rawvolution, so when I went to Santa Monica this weekend I really wanted to check out HIS versions of the menu items (I hadn't been too pleased with how my recipes have come out from the book, so I wanted to see if they were in line w/the restaurant food). I ordered the Big Matt with a side of mock tuna and couscous, and it was alright. I'd heard people rave about the burger, but it left me feeling a bit lethargic. It was filling, but I wasn't too happy afterwards. My cousin had the Sloppy Joe with a side of guacamole, and that was a bit tastier (he's not a raw vegan in the least, but he enjoyed his meal & brownie). I also tried the vanilla hemp milk (I'd never had hemp before), and it was pretty good...although I don't see myself paying $6 for it again. There also wasn't enough seating in the restaurant, so we took our food to the pier & ate on the beach. The prices are reasonable (dessert is kinda expensive though) and it's an okay place to stop for lunch, but the food's missing that *delicious* kick to it. If you're going to be in the SaMo area, you may as well go to Juliano's.
