For Raw Wednesday today, I’ll share with you guys the amazing brunch I had at 118 Degrees, a raw vegan restaurant in Southern California. I was looking to try it out, then an offer on Groupon popped up for half off a brunch for two so obviously I had no excuse not to try it!
First Course: Apple Coffee Cake Martini (pictured above)- Marinated apples in cinnamon and agave topped with a pecan crumble and espresso creme. Holy yum, was this good! I will definitely be recreating something like this in the future!
Second & Third Course: Strawberry Balsamic Salad & Warmed Tomato Bisque- Mixed greens, fresh strawberries, with a balsamic dressing. This bisque was SO good, and the salad was light and refreshing.
Fourth Course: Pesto Fusion Pasta- Zucchini noodles tossed with pesto, marinated onion, and red bell pepper. This dish reminded me of a zucchini pesto dinner that I have made, and was very good; especially with the addition of the orange sauce.
Fifth Course: Chocolate Mousse Pie- Served chilled with a crumbled pecan crust. This dessert was extremely creamy and decadent, and was the perfect way to end the brunch. I left there feeling satisfied and not like I had stuffed myself. The brunch also came with a free beverage, I chose the organic mimosa of course! 😉 I definitely recommend going to 118 Degrees if you are in the area!
