Rawthentic Eatery's chefs craft a raw menu brimming with offerings free from dairy, meat, gluten, and sugar, all prepared at temperatures less than 105 degrees to preserve enzymes present within the food. Straws sink into a Smoothie Sensations' almond mylk, agave, and organic fruits ($6/12 oz.; $7/20 oz.), and made-from-scratch falafel wraps fold around an assortment of raw fillings ($12.95). Meanwhile, cooks craft raw flat-bread sandwiches ($8), and pizza artisans flatten flax-seed dough, slather it with marinara sauce, and then sprinkle toppings to make a Super Melt pizza ($8). For dessert, forks sound their foghorns and then ferry bites of apple pie filled with apples, dates, and raisins piled on a crust made from almonds, dates, and spices ($5.95). Rawthentic also boasts 3–5 special entrees that, like the slowest ferris wheel ever, rotate monthly.

Rawthentic Eatery

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.
