I've been itching to check out Belmonte Raw in Leslieville, so Cat and I popped in for an shared bite on a hot day. And I must say we were super impressed with everything we ordered! The Chili Fries were amazing, like I-need-to-make-those-at-home amazing. The Wealth juice was so tasty it inspired me to use sweet potoato in my Fuzzy Peach recipe and their Peanut Butter Thimbles, with 24k gold sprinkles, make you ask reese's who? I seriously suggest checking Belmonte out. While it was pretty hot in the cafe, the atmosphere was relaxed and the staff very friendly and attentive. With a cooler of freshly made foods and bottled juices, it makes for a quick grab and go. Or you can order drinks and food to be made on the spot. It's so good to see raw joints popping up in all corners of the city, just another example of the growing demand for real food.
