After my first RAW FOOD experience was a little disappointing (See Raw Food Kitchen – Fremantle blog post here) I have since heard many wonderful reviews on CNR Kitchen in Northbridge and raw/vegan food in general.
I came to CNR Kitchen one sunny Sunday lunch and we sat in the sun overlooking the Northbridge Piazza. It is such a beautiful spot to sit on a sunny day and enjoy the fresh breeze and watch the big screen if your lunch date is a little boring! Fortunate for me, I had lots of chatting to do!
The raw Pad Thai was made with raw zucchini pasta, coconut milk, fresh coriander, capsicum, carrot, coconut slices and a small kick of chilli. I found this dish very strange but enjoyed it the more I ate it. It definitely lacked seasoning, so after a good salt and pepper addition, I quite enjoyed the flavours. Nothing like a Pad Thai from a Thai restaurant but some thing light and cleansing for a change. It’s nice not to feel oily and bloated after finishing a classic Pad Thai dish.
We ordered the G.A.P. drink – ginger, apple and pear juice $6.50. This was deliciously refreshing. I love ginger in a juice!
