Quick Chop! RAW Conscious Eatery, Glenelg

RAW - 2/2 Chapel Street, Glenelg SA 5045

Needing a quick and healthy very late lunch, I (Amanda) happened to be in Glenelg and decided it was the perfect time to try RAW.  RAW is described as an eatery focusing on the use of locally sourced ingredients (organic where possible) to produce nourishing treats that are vegan and gluten, dairy and refined sugar free.  They offer everything from coffee, tea, cold pressed juices, smoothies, nut mylks to wholefood savouries, raw treats and smoothie bowls.

It is a half an hour before closing on a Saturday afternoon, so the place is quiet with only 3 other tables occupied.  It looks like it has been a busy day with unswept floors and unwiped tables but I make my way to the counter and order the wholemeal pastie (vegan and dairy free).  I'm informed there will be a 10 minute wait... not a problem for me as it gives me time to recover from my busy day.

Wholemeal Pastie $7.90
The spinach and mushroom pastie arrives with a tomato sauce on the side.  The pastie is not quite sealed at the edges so to reveal a peek of the filling.  Lightly filled with spinach and mushroom there are also diced potatoes, carrots and fresh herbs present.  The wholemeal pastry is good with lovely crispy edges and flaky layers.  I do feel very nourished eating this vegan pastie!  The organic house made tomato sauce is quite runny and very sweet and a little too overpowering with the warming subtle flavours of the vegetables and pastry.  I would have preferred something with a little more spice and thicker texture, maybe a tomato chutney with a kick of chilli but that's just my personal preference.

Today RAW fulfilled my quick and healthy lunch brief and next time I'm in the area I would be keen to try some of their other offerings such as the smoothie bowls (maybe in summer) or their current winter offerings of soup and a curry.
