Photo Cred Lisa My new favourite raw restaurant happens to be just outside the city in Georgetown, Ontario. I'd never been to Halton Hills and I must say it is BEAUTIFUL, especially in fall colour. HeathEnut is about 10 minutes from the 401 off the Trafalgar exit. It's a cute little cafe on Main Street, with lots of street parking (I value convenient parking), an extremely friendly staff and quality real food at really fair prices. I ordered a mix salad with their house Green Goddess dressing (beyond good), bought a bag of local sunflower sprouts and two bottles of dressing to take home. Amazing and so delicious. I highly recommend checking out HeathEnut, they organize lots of events, cleanses and serve delicious food, it's worth the trip.

Photo Cred Lisa I hit up The Ex at the CNE grounds last night, the people watching was out of control! I could spend my day on a bench at The Ex just checking out all the "diversity" in this world. Wow. Anyway, it was super exciting to have a raw food option, Vie, which is located in the main food building has surprisingly prime real estate when you enter through the Buskers Corner entrance, check out the map. I ordered the taco, enchilada and shared a few desserts. The portion sizes were big, both the taco and enchilada were too much food, and the prices about average at $25 including a kambucha. Which of course is crazy, but we're talking CNE here. The taco was super delicious and the enchilada was close but needed a punch of flavour, the desserts were tasty but tiny. I would eat there again, and hope to see them pop up around the city soon. It was kinda awesome leaving The Ex and not feeling like I wanted to barf, yay Vie!

Photo Cred Lisa The Ex opens today at the CNE grounds, and while I've literally had the time of my life there in years past it's a little scary from a food standpoint as deep fried butter and pork on pork sandwiches are the typical fare. But this year, are you ready for it, there is a raw booth! Holy crap! Check out the listing of food available here, from the sounds of it Vie will be serving up tacos, pizza and a bunch of other fancy living food. I'm pretty excited! I'm just so happy to see a healthy option, I love eating out and it's great to indulge in raw foods made by someone else. Hooray! For more info on Vie here is their website and twitter.

I've been to Feel Good Guru twice in the past week, it would have been thrice had they been open yesterday mid afternoon. The location is so awesome, their food is delicious and portion sizes are impressive for a raw vegan cafe. And while I find the staff in most vegan places to be friendly this group is exceptionally outgoing. They love to talk about the food and offer up bits of interesting information (i.e. SlimCado wtf?) which makes for a feel good experience... no joke. The place is set up for takeout, with a few stools at the front. They make everything on the spot so don't expect to be out of there in under 15 minutes. While they do have a cooler with drinks, the good stuff needs to be assembled by hand so you can watch them layer all those beautiful, local ingredients. The avocado and cheese sandwich is wow at first bite, it was my Mum's first go at raw restaurant food and she loved it. The Eco Taco is perfectly spicy and in the words of Grande Jean "I didn't know a raw taco could taste like that, so fcuking good!", while the Blueberry Crumble was quickly devoured, the Rainbow Wraps proved perfect for walking and eating. It's just what the West Queen West area needed, takeout food that's truly good for you.
