Went to one of the neatest little places for lunch today here in Columbia, SC – a healthy, organic, vegan dive called Simply Rawsome. It’s right off of Two Notch Rd in the same shopping center as Very’s. With no sign on the exterior and no (real) website yet, it’s a very unassuming place – but don’t judge a book by its cover!! The interior is a sweet labor of love with vibrant colors, a fun velveteen-like green Victorian couch, bright walls, a mini-library of vegan/organic cookbooks and a very large kitchen. It has a small bar area where 3 or 4 could eat and a fair amount of wall seating for those waiting on to-go orders.
I had this beautiful “live” (because raw foods are live and give you energy) spaghetti salad made of zucchini as the pasta and I think a nice warm tofu mix of some sorts as the “meat” sauce substitute. It came with two very delicious mini-hummus wraps on the side. That was $12. I added on a bottle of Chef Saa’s delicious and green Basil Lemonade ($6 – or you could get a glass for $3). BRING CASH!! There are a few banks right down the street.
Chef Saa also teaches a few classes on how to make raw foods taste GOOD!! I can’t wait to take the juicing one.
