I tried another raw restaurant while I was in Seattle – Chaco Canyon Cafe. As far as I could tell, it was the only raw restaurant in town. I heard rumors of an uber hipster spot in Belltown where everyone had tattoos, but I couldn’t find anything about it. Maybe it was just a mythological spot.
They serve vegetarian and vegan items as well as raw. This was the hippie bowl that my friend ordered.
Another friend ordered the salad. Both of these were really great. They’ve definitely got the dressing thing down.
I ordered the nacho plate. The salad, salsa, and guacomole were really outstanding on this. The flax crackers were really beautiful looking, but admittedly I didn’t like them as much as the ones my BOYFRIEND makes. It’s not that there was anything wrong with them. I think the problem is that they are primarily made of flax, and I’m not really a big fan of flax by itself. Though usually I find flax crackers to be too rubbery and these definitely were not. The refried beans were okay, but I also preferred the ones from my MAN.
Then, out of the blue, the chef brought us a pesto pizza. I guess there was a leftover piece. So, they decided to bless us with it. WOW! The pesto pizza was AMAZING. Definitely a must try.
The kitchen window had a cool monument to community spirit.
For dessert, I had the carrot cake.
Heidi had the carob pie. I think I preferred the carob pie. The carrot cake was good and prettier looking. But definitely the carob pie was better.
So, next time you’re in Seattle, you’ll have to check it out. Definitely not an uber scenester place. It’s nestled in the U District, deep in the heart of hippieland. Less tattoos, more patchouli. If you do go, you should definitely try the pesto pizza…
