Going to Vancouver on a business trip, I searched online for vegetarian friendly fare, and discovered a PETA recommendation - one of the top ten vegetarian restaurants in North America was in Vancouver! Off I went to Gorilla Food, a raw, organic, vegan cafe in British Columbia, Canada. This vlog depicts the food I ordered and the state of bliss I was in at that time :) I also discuss briefly the philosophy behind raw food eating. This cafe gets two gorilla thumbs up!
Ahimsa Alfredo Linguini “New”dles spun from zucchini then smothered in a rich white cashew cream. Served a la carte or with your choice of dressings and a side Medicinal Mesclun Salad.
GO Veggie Burger A stack of two veggie burger patties thickly topped with guacamole, fresh tomato slices, cucumber slices, shredded seasonal veggies and a ginger-tomato ketchup. Served in a lettuce leaf bun.
Of course, the main reason why I went there - dessert!
Dark Raw Chocolate Fudge Something that keeps gorillas coming to work even on days off! Chocolate Truffles Smooth creamy orbs of differing decadent delicious superfood pleasures!
Butterfly Bliss Infused chocolate flowers topped with a fresh walnut and raw caramel. Maca Choco-Roons Cacao, coconut, maca root and dates - these are definitely the new jazz haystacks! Chocolate Protein Orbs Highly hemped and algae powered! Sweet orbs made of cacao, seeds, nuts and body benefiting bounties!
And some cookies - chocolate almond pecan, orange walnut spice, etc.
