#RAW, A Little Piece of Vegan Goodness in FlorenceMonday, September 19, 2016
Last month a good friend of mine visited me in Florence who also happened to be vegan. In a land filled with meat and cheese I thought it would be difficult to find a place that we could go to for lunch, but thankfully with one of Florence's new restaurant/cafés named #RAW it wasn't a problem (and it was actually super delicious!)
#RAW is a cute little café in Santo Spirito which only opened up a couple of months ago. Caroline (Swedish) and Manfredi (Florentine) wanted to open a raw food bar to "present the products in a simple way with a sophisticated touch", reaching out to those who had already adopted a plant-based (vegan) diet or those who are interested in it (me!). The restaurant focuses on raw products based on fresh fruits and vegetables. They have a range of food for lunch which is all gluten free, grain free, soy free and simply food for health. All priced at €7.50 it's a bargain: Raw vegan burger with spirulina buckwheat bread, raw vegan wrap (made with fresh tomatoes and bell peppers served with bio spouts, kale, seasonal greens and basil cream), raw vegan soup of the day (served with raw seed crackers or buckwheat bread), vegan quinoa salad (with buckwheat bread) and vegan rice wraps (with buckwheat bread).
