    Oh man, you always have the coolest dining experiences! Not a fan of avocado really throws me off, but glad you liked the pineapple sandwich. Everything else looks really incredible. I’m very intrigued by the samosa.
    Let me know when you find a puppy that comes toilet trained and will never grow up.

    You look absolutely glowing-ly gorgeous in these photos 🙂 Must be all this raw food, huh!?! 😉 I LOVE that idea for a pineapple “sandwich” – awesome.

    Everything looks so good! I always meant to try 118 Degrees, but every time I was in the area I was wooed by Native Foods in the same complex. (Darn you, seitan burgers & fries!) Still, the next time I find myself in Orange County, I need to give it a go.

    Good luck on finding your imaginary pug and butler! That sounds like a pretty sweet life. If you figure out a way to make it happen, do let me in on your secret!

    From the title of this blog post I thought I was going to be reading about a violent heatwave. I love how innovative and creative this raw vegan food looks. I’d definitely be up for one of those brilliantly vibrant smoothies and the pineapple dish xx

    I’m going for the fruit cobbler and the Bloody Mary. And the butler. Oh yeah! What a wonderful place xcat

    The fruit cobbler looks like it’s about a foot wide, unless those fruit slices are smaller than I’m imagining. I would go for a foot-wide dessert any day, even if it isn’t made of nature’s first food.

    Would you say that with that Bulleit you’ve been imbibing you too are sauced to perfection?(!!) I’m just kidding, I just wanted to work that in somehow:)

    The food sounds (and looks) utterly delicious. I’m loving the sound of those drinks as well.. gimme gimme gimme

    This is one of those places on my dream restaurant list. I’ve heard so much about it, but somehow feel like I’ll never be able to actually eat there… I hope I can prove myself wrong and visit one day though.

    Carolyn is one special person …

    I love the look of the Pineapple Sandwich too, though would prefer it without the banana! Love the look of the crumble BUT how is raw food served warm? Do they sit in on a windowsill in the sun? But then, that would be solar cooking and not raw? Please, tell me …

    Um, you have the best friends! That pineapple sandwich looks and sounds amazing – I would be all over that.

  11. Christine

    I’ve never been to a raw restaurant. Sounds so delicious and crunchy!!!

    You are so pretty pretty in these photos! It’s all that beet juice making your cheeks pick, I’m sure. I would massacre that cobbler.

    Hey cutie! I feel full of vitamins just reading this. Am unsure if this concept would fly in freeeezing Wellington, but I like the thought of having something like this to go to occasionally. Keep enjoying your Costa Mesa times!

    PS: I enjoyed the globally encompassing beet(root)s <3

    Absolutely gorgeous pics. The ‘Alfredo’ looks the best to me.

    No Oranges and no Avocados?

    I love how your lipstick matches your drink. I would have been most displeased not to have the avocado in the pineapple sandwich – without the avocado doesn’t it just become dessert??? Or maybe it would be dessert with the avocado too??? Anyway looks like lots of good and fascinating food

    I wish I had a raw vegan place in skippable distance from me! 😀

  18. Ashley

    I wish we had more interesting raw/vegan places like this in Melbourne, everything looks so bright, cheery and delicious!

  19. Kari @ bite-sized thoughts

    I’m also glad there was no avocado on your sandwich. If there had been, I couldn’t have thrown myself as fully into the enthusiasm and excitement I am currently experiencing on imagining it. As it is…well, two exclamation marks seems appropriate.

  20. Heathy

    This place looks stellar, I would looove to go there!!! Wish there were raw food restos around me.

    Ohmaigawd, it all looks amazing! GIMMIE!
