Glorious Raw Vegan Food, Lovely People
Posted on 07 / 21 / 2013
On our way through Atlanta today, we stopped here based on the HappyCow listing and their web site. We were not familiar with Atlanta, and while I've read that the West End neighborhood is being renewed, it looked like a work in progress. Frankly, we were uncertain about eating there, but we finally went in. Our enthusiastic conclusion is, DO NOT HESITATE! The personable gentleman behind the counter was very helpful in trying to figure out which dishes to try, and we met the lovely Tassili when she came out of the kitchen to greet some friends. Everyone had a smile - the wonderful food may have had something to do with that!
The food is raw, vegan, and organic. And most of all, DELICIOUS! To sample a number of items, we got a box with servings of 6 items for $21 (though we got a double portion of the Spicy Kale) and had enough to share for lunch and dinner. (Your mileage may vary, but it will be a happy trip.) The Spicy Kale Salad is quite spicy, as advertised, but so tasty we ate through any discomfort. The Karamu Couscous was a good, slightly-sweet counterpoint to the kale's heat, as was the sweeter, and excellent, Sweet Coconut Corn. And the other genius dish was the Curried Plantains, not spicy like the kale, but a wondrous combination of flavors nevertheless. Rounding out our selection was Curried Tofu (I think that's what it was called - it's not listed on their web site). It can be hard to prepare tofu so it's not bland, but this was flavorful.
Our only disappointment (aside from the sauce stain on my shirt!) was that when my wife went to buy a copy of Tassili's book, they were all out. We'll have to get it online!
Excellent food - great flavors!, Wonderful people, Great price for terrific raw vegan
None - once we went in
