Rawthentic Eatery

A diner digs into a bowl of noodles sprinkled with cheese and awaits the wedge of berry-studded cheesecake ordered for dessert. Though this sounds like a meal at your standard Italian restaurant, it isn't what it appears to be—the noodles are actually raw zucchini slivers, the cheese is made with nuts, and the cheesecake, though decadent, contains no cheese at all. This double take is exactly what Rawthentic Eatery's creators had in mind, since they strive to create healthy raw and vegan meals that complement the lifestyle of every diner, vegan or not.

Ingredients are never heated to more than 105 degrees, the temperature at which food begins to lose nutrients. This requires the chefs to be innovative—besides using vegetables as pasta, they blend smoothies that substitute raw agave for refined sugar and use chopped nuts to make up the breads and pie crusts. As a result, a bounty of raw comfort foods such as lasagna or meatball subs also draws in nonvegans who simply have food allergies, high blood pressure, or bad memories of dating a microwave. With locations in Qualicum Beach and the newest in Courtenay, Rawthentic Eatery is a hub for socializing as well as eating: chefs host events such as '50s-diner nights and holiday dinners and teach raw-foods cooking classes twice each month.

The service was fantastic. Great selection of menu items.

Their food is all made fresh, on the premises, and it's full of flavour.
