    Oh yay! I am so glad you finally got to try out a raw food restaurant and I am glad you were not disappointed, however I DO believe, get Amber and I together and we could wow you and your brother and your parents even more 🙂 I’m just sayin 😉

    Enjoy Melbourne, even with the 4 seasons in one day. And on my goodness, thanks for the shout out darling girl!!

      Robyn, hell yeah we could! Can you imagine what would happen if you grouped the three of us, you, me, and Hannah, in one kitchen? I think the universe would explode! (Or implode; I’d have to consult Stephen Hawking on which is likelier…)

    The entire meal sounds divine!! I was salivating over the photos! 🙂

  3. Fiona

    Oooh those cakes sound great.

  4. theresa

    That sounds like raw food I could get behind 🙂

    Especially cake.

    The food looks amazing! I have been looking at making a few raw meals over the summer, when we actually get a summer….OH THE RAIN! 🙂

    1. GirlonRaw

      Hey Leah! Sorry to jump right in here but I follow a pretty high raw diet all year round and raw doesn’t necessarily have to mean COLD so you can eat it even when it’s raining 🙂 Warming herbs help (like ginger, cayenne etc) plus you can have semi warm soups to if you desire. Just a thought!

    Oh I love Yong’s! It’s been an age since I was last there, and I desperately want to go again. So delicious!

  7. Jennifer

    This place sounds fantastic! My best friend follows a raw diet permanently, I’ll have to make sure she knows about it…although the post sounds far too healthy for you Hannah!!

    Hahah welcome to Melbourne weather – the chick with constant PMS.

    And I can’t believe I haven’t heard of this place – this is definitely going on my list

  9. Lori

    Oh I would devour both plates of food and both desserts! So good! Raw food is/can be the most flavorful meal- especially how great it makes you feel after eating it! Glad you enjoyed the meal!

    those photos at the top are hilarious – I must get to yongs one of these days but am not sure if it is somewhere I would take sylvia!

    I will join you in being unaustralian when it comes to mangoes – I think stone fruit is far more Australian – the cherries I bought at the market were superb – I wished I had thought to buy some for you to take on your trip to flinders st. Was lovely to meet you yesterday though I am sorry I was rushing around shopping – next time hope we can sit down and relax more

    I say – complete raw food meals! A few more converts could go a long way towards saving greenhouse gas emissions. But then again, all that roughage? I wonder?

  12. whisperinggums

    Didn’t we ever teach you to smile for the camera? I think we’ll take our bankrolling offer back! Seriously though the food looks intriguing…and, yes, even tasty.

    Good looking family! And I want to eat ALL OF THAT and hoard their pink water bottle, distressed white furniture and Japanese screen for myself. I just may request a raw cook book for Christmas… I hate cooking, but I like buying good ingredients and putting them on a plate. Seems like the proper diet for me.

    Whoopie Doooo, I’m so envious that you got to go there and try out this oh so fab place, thanks for the awesome write up, great pics too.
    Great that your having such a fun fab time down in the Melbourne town 🙂

  15. Simply Life

    Oh that does look delicious!

  16. K

    I love those raw cheesecakes, and haven’t had one for ages. Must return soon!

    Welcome to Melb, and loves the shots of you and your bro.

  17. tasteofbeirut

    very intriguing offerings! Love salads, always have,does that mean I would love raw food? need to check it out!

  18. Vaala ◪

    Awesome!! I want to go there! My flatmates are currently galivanting around Melbourne eating up everything on sight…perhaps I should recommend it. I do adore both of your facials! Clearly great facials runs in the genes!

    I don’t know how people can order just one dessert between even two people. I mean, even if you are ridiculously full there is a second stomach for dessert. Not to mention you can always just take the leftovers home if you wimp out. It is tragic. Don’t get me started on the ridiculously small slivers of cake people take these days.

    By the way, raw pumpkin pie is fantastic 😉

  19. Heidi - Apples Under My Bed

    oooh raw-licious!! (sorry, lame). It looks really yummy! Especially the Rawsagna. I forgive you for not loving mangoes as much as your brother. I love them so much!! BUT I think I would choose berries over them 🙂 Love the initial expression on your brother’s face!

  20. Kath Lockett

    Wow, where IS this place, she asks, blushing, having lived in Melbourne for two years…..

  21. Jason

    The raw cheese cake would be interesting to try. Have been looking for a place that does a good pumpkin pie.

  22. hungryandfrozen

    oooOOOOooo Raw vegan food is so exciting (I know, I love butter and cake and things, but still). I just wish it was more accessible – so many interesting recipes I click on turn out to need a dehydrator or some really difficult-to-get-hold-of-ingredients – and I don’t mean just agave nectar or whatever which can be found relatively easily or substituted with honey. The meal looks amazing, cashew cream sounds amazing, and your curly curls are also amazing!

  23. L-Izzle

    I’d definitely be interested in trying this place… but more out of curiosity than anything. I’m generally of the ‘why would I want raw stuff when I can have COOKED stuff?!’ school of thought, but I’m always interested in seeing how they execute this kinda thing. It’s like a yummy science project! 🙂 So if I had limited time in Melbourne, visiting here would probably get pushed quite far down the list in favour of…non-raw places. But I’m crossing any fingers and toes into big arthritic-like lumps, hoping to visit my brother in Melbourne for a few weeks in January/February…..AKA lots of potential meals 😀 😀

    Anyhoo. Very glad you’re having a good time! You and your bro are cuties 😀 Can’t wait to hear about more of your travels/eatings!

    Has your brother seen this post yet? Has he disowned you for putting up that photo of him?

    Well, you know what I think about raw food – I’m glad you enjoyed it!

    PS: totally disowning you as a BFF if any pics of me end up on here…..

    Raw carrot cake sounds amazing! I’m glad you’ve got such an open-minded brother… I can’t even get mine to try hummus. HA!

    I <3 Yong, but possibly not quite so much as I <3 the Tshirt your brother is wearing in that photo. 😀

    oh gosh, that does sound interesting. Would never have thought something like this existed. how sheltered am I!!!!

    It was such a pleasure meeting you on the weekend. You’re such a hoot!

  31. Amber Shea @Almost Vegan

    I am so very thrilled that you made it to a raw restaurant, and even more so that you enjoyed it! Oh, and that your skeptical brother did, too 🙂 Both desserts look amazing, but the texture of that carrot cake (and its icing) looks especially fab. I don’t know why I haven’t thought to make a blueberry cheezecake yet (considering I’ve made raspberry; duh!); that is one I will HAVE to try. When you come visit, I’ll make one for you that’ll knock the pants off this one. 😉

  32. Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella

    Ooh I have this on my list to visit too so thankyethankyethankye for the review! 😀 And you look very determined but sultry in that pic but your brother does look a lil bit disturbed or aghast 😛

  33. Conor @ HoldtheBeef

    All together now…. “four seasons in one day…”

    This food looks very interesting. In a good interesting way, not an oh-man-what-do-I-call-this-pile-of-crap interesting one. What takes me fancy more though, is your brother’s shirt. I would like to have an interesting shirt-off with him. As in, an interesting (in a good way) shirt competition, not an interesting (in a weird way) shirt off situation. Oh god this paragraph is getting awkward. I hope you know what I mean. Gah.

    I finally got to read this post. YAY. It looks so very intriguing. I’m not sure I quite understand the modern fascination with raw food, but I am keen to get to this place on my next Melbourne trip- I’ve been a rather lucky, relatively frequent visitor to that fair city over the years. We dine out a lot there, I’m not sure that my friend would willingly go to a raw vegan restaurant, but he sure would enjoy moaning about it later, so I’ll have to tell him that we are going to a surprise place. Actually I think my last few visits I haven’t made it out of the CBD so it would be fun to go to Fitzroy, it is my old stomping ground after all (I lived in Fitzroy for a year back in the 80s when I was young, and capable of having blue black hair). I am keen to try the rawsagna, although lasagna isn’t something I order when out usually. I would love to try raw sushi, but don’t consider raw carrot to be a foodstuff (it’s great getting older, you can have all these random things you don’t like, and have decided not to eat any more) so would be a bit concerned about that. The cakes look absolutely fab. And I’m not above ordering extras to take away and have for breakfast the next day just to get to try them all.
