It's Time to Try it Raw

We know we're late to the party here, but have you ever heard of Try it Raw in Downtown Birmingham? Somehow this magical restaurant has flown under our radar for the last four years. But, ever since we had our first taste, we can't stop going back for more.

Try It Raw is an all vegan raw restaurant that serves up some of the most delicious food we have ever put on our palette. Their staple menu includes tacos, zucchini noodles, avocado rolls, hand rolls, salads, dessert, a breakfast bowl, and more. Their daily specials include lasagna, pizza, burgers, Reuben sandwiches, and more. None of the food that they serve is cooked above 116° and everything is plant based. They use lots of soaked legumes, nuts and grains, to create their plant based treats and they are truly onto something special because their food doesn't taste like anything we've ever had before.


We've sampled quite a few things on their menu and we haven't found anything that we didn't like yet. But, we would be doing you a disservice if we didn't mention one item and we know will blow your mind. Vegan or non vegan, you must go to try it  raw and order the nachos. Everyone tried to do their take on vegan nachos and tacos. Many restaurants use seitan, tofu, and even cauliflower to create the perfect texture and taste,  but the nachos at Try It Raw take it to the next level. Their nachos are made with fresh cabbage chips topped with walnut pate, tomato, avocado, green onion, cashew nacho cheese, and cashew sour cream. They taste better than most of the nachos we have ever eaten and the cabbage chips give them the most wonderful crunch. If you have ever thought about trying vegan or raw food, this is the place you need to go to and this is the item that you need to try. 

Try It Raw is open from 7 a.m. until 6:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. until 6:30 p.m. on Saturdays, and 11 a.m. until 3 p.m. on Sunday. They source their foods locally and are passionate about the benefits of adding more fruits and vegetables into your diet. Stop in and grab something healthy from them the next time you are in the area and need to get some take-out. We promise that your taste buds and your body won't regret it!
