My 2nd visit to The Living Cafe had a mission of trying out a proper meal there. Check out my 1st visit here.
And so~ I ordered a Set Lunch that included Entree, Main and Dessert ($18.80nett) which is actually pretty worth it as the ala carte items would be more expensive. They have no service charge and additional GST! (:
Raw Samosa w Mango Chutney
Samosas contained peas, chickpeas and carrots I think...? Earthy with mild curry taste, abit dry and normal on its own but the mango chutney saved it! (: But it had a strong garlic/onion taste I didn't really like, but that's my own preference... Don't really fancy those pungent roots.
Raw TLC Burger w Cheesy Sauce ($15 for a la carte)
Interesting! Raw patty was composed of 23-hour dehydrated mushrooms, walnuts, and more and it was topped with cheesy sauce, tomatoes, onions, alfafa sprouts and sandwiched between lettuce "bread"
However I felt that it was overwhelmingly salty such that it was quite unbearable towards the end... (><) Maybe it was to compensate for the bland accompaniments?? Recommended to eat with all the veggie "bread" it came along with, I made the mistake of devouring most first and leaving a thin layer... ):
The orange-pinkish cheesy sauce was good! Though honestly I didn't taste much of it due to the salty patty... The accompanying bit of sauce by the side is avocado salsa I think. Normal but fabulous with the plain crunchy lettuce. Oh and I picked out all the raw onions again... :P
Raw Chocolate Parfait
It is made of cashew cream if I am not wrong, raw desserts use alot of the yummy cashews (yay again!) to achieve the dense, creamy texture that cannot be done otherwise without using cream and eggs. I could spot beautiful specks of vanilla beans in the bottom layer of cashew cream too! Lovely creamy dessert to end the meal sweetly~! (^-^)
Overall it was a very unique experience tasting a totally raw meal (uncooked!) but yet with sufficient flavour. Not the best option if you're looking for hot meal and exciting flavours but perfect for a rare change for the experience.
Probably won't order the same thing again though... :P
