The Green Boheme, located in Roseville, California is the only raw vegan restaurant in a hundred mile radius. That being said, it has gone beyond exceeding my expectations for my first raw vegan restaurant experience. The venue, although small, was charmingly rustic. On Monday nights, chef and owner Brooke Preston hosts Dine & Demos where she explains the process of making the audience’s dinner and its nutritional value. The raw vegan meals are made with foods not exceeding 107 degrees Fahrenheit.

Everything is made with fresh fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, and seasonings that are organic, soy free, gluten free, grain free, and refined sugar free. The restaurant offers fresh pressed juices, smoothies, all day breakfast and lunch/dinner options, coffee, drinks, and desserts. I tried an enchilada with cashew cheese sauce and “sour cream” with a side of jicama rice and a nut and seed “bean” mix. The dehydrated corn wrap was stuffed with portobello mushrooms, avocado, and salsa. Its shocking resemblance to a typical enchilada astounded me. The meal is not what I pictured as a raw vegan enchilada.

As a fan of any restaurant that serves breakfast all day, I also tried the fruit stuffed, yogurt topped crepe. The “crepe” was also made with a dehydrator. Although the accuracy of the flavors was satisfying, my only concern was the lack of variety of fruits inside, as I only had strawberries and blueberries. I finished my meal with a chocolate pie. The chocolate mousse was so appetizing and the nut crust topped off the texture.

I am excited to return to my new favorite restaurant and try a matcha latte or a “BLT.” Check out the rest of their menu and more information on their website:
