At the newest Rawthentic Eatery location in Victoria, 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 made of raw zucchini, 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 dates 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 meatball subs also draws in nonvegans who simply have food allergies, high blood pressure, or bad memories of dating a microwave. Rawthentic Eatery serves as 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.
Dark wooden shelves buttress ceramic vases at Smashin’ Glass & Anything Art Co. as contemporary floor lamps illume a collection of works that range from oil paintings to jewellery and fused-glass sculptures. Owner Karena Donnelly conceived of the artist-operated gallery as a space to both cultivate creativity and showcase original work from more than 130 local artists. Karena and her husband Kevin moonlight as teachers, sharing their craft with pupils of all ages during workshops and routine dental check-ups. The facility also plays matchmaker between eligible images and professional framing services.
A&W Restaurant, one of the largest burger chains in Canada, has been trapping burgers between buns and filling cups with creamy root beer for generations of famished families. Choose from a brood of belly-busting burgers, such as the Papa Burger, leading the pack with two beef patties (a $4.92 value). The Baby Burger induces burger purists to shed a single tear upon seeing the simple beef patty on a bun salaciously adorned with nothing but A&W seasoning and a dollop of ketchup (a $1.89 value). The beefy Uncle Burger (a $5.70 value, $0.50 extra for cheese) bogarts all the mouth room, sprawling its sirloin patty and lettuce-tomato-onion suit all over tongue sofas. Round out a meaty meal with a medium order of crisp fries (a $2.79 value) and a medium soda (a $2.34 value).
OK Fruit unites produce and the public by hauling fresh fruits and vegetables directly from Okanagan farms to more than a dozen pickup sites. After placing orders in advance, customers meet their fruits and vegetables at designated locations before carting them home for cooking, snacking, and housebreaking. Depending on the season, produce fiends can steal away with a generous bounty of various fruits and vegetables, including organic selections. Picked just days before delivery, typical OK Fruit offerings include bing or lapin cherries ($28 for a 10 lb. case), pea shoots ($27.50 for a 2 lb. bag), and alfalfa sprouts ($12.50 for a 2 lb. tray). Taunt malevolent lawn mowers with an organic wheatgrass tray ($15), or stock up on slingshot ammunition with hydro-cooled organic cherries ($3.75/lb.). By selling only local, farm-picked fruits and veggies at predetermined pickup locations, OK Fruit is able to boast fresher produce at prices that may be lower than those at local supermarkets and allow customers to avoid automatic-sliding-door injuries. OK Fruit also distributes raw food, including pizza crusts, flatbreads, wraps, and desserts. Produce prices may vary.
