Dinner at Raw Aura

Last night I met up with a vegan friend to have dinner at Raw Aura, the only raw restaurant in Mississauga.

I really like eating there because the food makes you feel really good and energized, I need to go there more often!

I ordered the Big Salad which is actually a HUGE salad, as the server said "that salad is quite the commitment"  and it's true! In it was: kale and romaine lettuce, avocado, cucumber, tomato, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, red pepper, onions and hummus and live breadsticks! I'm not sure what the dressing on it was, but it was perfect with sesame seeds sprinkled on top.

It was massive and delicious, took me about an hour but I finished it!

My friend ordered the Sweet and Sour Noodles which was amazing (and spicy) with the zucchini noodles and almond sauce and veggies.

For dessert I got the Apple Crumble. I loved the cinnamon zing.

My friend got the Brownie which was stellar, I need to make a raw brownie like that!

This restaurant is ridiculously close to my home so I need to eat here more often especially because their menu is so drool-worthy it's hard for me to decide on anything!

Have you been to Raw Aura? If so what is your fav thing on the menu? I love their kale chips but didn't have room this time :(

Have a sweet day!


  1. I LOVE RAW AURA! I especially like the new stuff that the chef has come up with lately. I know people were worried when Doug left but the Thai wraps and the tacos are awesome and the specials like the stir fry are so creative!!! I think it is only going to get way better in there. So exciting!

  2. How good was your dessert? What should I get?xxoo
