So last night I finally convinced Sami that we should visit 'Pure on Raw', a raw vegan restaurant on the outskirts of Sheffield, as opposed to what we would usually do, which would be a cheat meal at the Mud Crab or something similar! We had to walk about 40 minutes to get to the restaurant as opposed to a five minute walk to our usual cheat-meal destination, but it was a beautiful summers evening so it was the perfect opportunity to make the most of this sun we've been experiencing lately. (That was how I managed to convince Sami we should go, anyway!) This delightful little vegan restaurant proved to be absolutely worth the walk, as you can see from these beautifully vibrant meals we indulged in!
This was Sami's starter (not raw) but look at this presentation! We were both pretty impressed. This is their 'club sandwich' containing ciabatta, filled with home made pesto, cashew nut cheese, grilled onion, mushrooms, peppers, courgettes, and topped with rocket and tomatoes, served with daily dip and crunchy vegetable sticks. Yum!
This was one of the mains we ordered - their raw pizza. The topping contained cashew cheese, marinated veg, nut meat, tomato and 'no meat pepperoni.' It was probably the best raw pizza I have ever tried, not that I have had many! However, for £10, we were expecting a whole pizza, instead of two slices and a huge salad!?
If you happen to be in the area I would definitely recommend this restaurant, just be prepared for the fact that it is pretty expensive. I will definitely be heading back here sometime in the near future. It made me feel 100x better than a cheat meal ever would have done!
