PURE FOOD AND WINE

 Pure Food and Wine is one of those places I've been dying to try for as long as I can remember, but never went. Until yesterday. I met up with an old friend of mine who is a bit of a mentor to me when it comes to holistic lifestyle, healing and veganism.
I tried their Master Cleanse Tini that I see Sarma always mentioning on Twitter and it was quite delightful. Maybe my favorite cocktail so far. And I won't feel bad at all drinking it because it really has nothing artificial in it. Could it even be good for you? I think it could. I'll stick to that opinion. See the recipe here.
Pure Food and Wine serves raw, organic, vegan fare and for appetizers we had these cute Hazelnut Crostinis with Crimini Mushrooms and Caper Bearnaise, caraway sauerkraut and local apple cider reduction. Yummy!
Niwa Maki of Avocado, Enoki Mushrooms, Pickled Heirloom Baby Carrots, asparagus, mango, scallions, spicy aioli. Most delicious maki rolls I've ever had.
Sweet Corn and Cashew Tamales with Chili Spiced Portabella, salsa verde, cashew coconut sour cream, avocado and raw cacao mole.
 I can't find the description for this deliciousness on their website, but I must say I've never ever eaten a portabella mushroom this tasty. It just melts in your mouth. This would be a great dish for my carnivore hubby. It's so much better than a bloody steak. I already made a date with him to come back here and introduce Mr. Meathead to raw vegan world. He cannot not love this!

  1. Pitäisköhän muuttaa Nykiin?? Täällä ei ole mitään tuollaista! Nami, vaikuttaa herkulliselta! Vegaanisisko kylässä ja tuskailee ravintolassa ja sama ongelma aina vegaanilapsen kanssa, ei mitään syötävää :P

  2. Voi harmi ettei siella olla viela ajantasalla naiden asioiden kanssa. Nyki on kylla vegaanin unelmakaupunki syominkien suhteen koska ravintoloita on auennut viime aikoina vaikka kuinka, varmasti kaikissa pihviravintoloissakin kokki osaa kylla tehda upean kasvislautasen ja joillain rafloilla on Meatless Mondays. Kertaakaan ei ole ollut ongelmaa.

    Kavin jokin aika sitten paikassa nimelta Benjamin Steakhouse kun olin saanut asiakkaalta lahjakortin sinne ja pelkasin etta joutuisin pelkkaa salaattia syomaan, mutta yllatyksekseni heilla oli aivan mieleton kasvislautanen tarjolla. Yritin ottaa kuvaa, mutta rafla oli niin penteleen pimea ettei onnannut.
