As a raw vegan, I was thrilled when we moved to the Austin area and found that Beets was on my husband's way home from work!
It's a cheerful place, with upbeat and helpful staff, and the food is simply phenomenal.
The taco plate is one of my favorites- the taco shells are crispy, the "meat" and "cheese" perfectly seasoned.
Also wonderful, the ELT (eggplant, lettuce and tomato) is served on a flat bread that is a soft texture I have been trying to achieve for years. The creaminess of the avocado pairs perfectly with the crispy bacon-y slices of eggplant.
The curried carrot soup is not to be missed. Salty notes pair with acidity of citrus and the sweetness of the carrots to create levels of flavor that are finished with a bit of heat at the end. Beautiful.
I'm not one to neglect dessert, and the chocolate cheesecake was sublime. (And quite a generous slice.) But it was the brownies that had me ready to sign up for one of their cooking classes. Again, a texture I've never come close to- moist, yet fluffy in a way few raw desserts are.
Beets is the best raw food I've ever had. If there were one in Kyle I would be there every single day.
