Up until recently, I was never that interested in trying raw foods. Things like raw tacos, raw pizzas, and raw soups sounded flat out bad to me. I was certain their cooked counterparts were always yummier and more filing.
A few raw meals in Los Angeles changed my mind drastically, and in the last six months I've become a fan of raw foods, even seeking out new raw restaurants to try. When I found out about Naked Treaties in beachside Byron Bay, I was keen to try it.
This small eatery has a cold case filled with uncooked treats and drinks as well as a made-to-orer kitchen. It's an order at the counter cafe with an extensive (and boy do I mean EXTENSIVE) smoothie list. After eyeing the menu for some time (everything sounded really yummy), I settled on the raw vegan crepes without honey to make it entirely animal- and insect-friendly. Filled with berries, tahini, and a sort of berry jam/compote, these crepes were absolutely delicious! I finished off the whole plate!
I also split a berry smoothie with my friend. It was tasty, but nothing overwhelmingly amazing. I make a pretty damn good smoothie at home, so restaurant fruit drinks don't impress me often (#smoothiesnob). My other friend ordered a fresh coconut to drink straight from the shell...YUM! I had a few sips of that and wished I had ordered my own!
Naked Treaties is a tasty spot to go to when you're craving something delicious and healthy. It's a little pricey (about $10 for a smoothie and $14 for the crepes, which were small), but I felt it was worth the money.
