Confession: here at Bali Chronicles HQ we love our bacon, smoked salmon, grilled chicken and greasy fries. But it doesn’t mean we don’t like any juice other than a juicy burger’s juice! We’re all about the balance in life, so after Friday and Saturday full of indulgent meals with dear friends, kids parties with popcorn and tons of pasta and happy gatherings with gallons of wine and sangria we are ready (oh, we are!) to switch into the detox mode. Enters In the RAW!
What we love about this cute little spot is that it doesn’t preach. Yes, it’s a healthy food maniac’s cave. Yes, everything is raw here, from sushi to cheesecake. No, you can’t have your raw pad thai with a fried egg on top (yes, we did ask for you). Yet this cafe manages not to school you on the healthy lifestyle, there is no chanting, namaste-ing or ecstatic eye-rolling. No posters inviting to tree-hugging session. No colonics chats (what a pity, we LOVE those!) They don’t care even if you smell like fried bacon and wear root chakra revealing leather shorts! Maybe because island’s party God Mark Baker has waved his magic wand around? That man knows how to have fun, even if we are talking juices! Gotta LOVE this spot.
First, the juices: these are probably the most delicious mixes we’ve tried. It’s so easy to pop in any time of the day and grab a super chilled bottle from the fridge – instant pick-me-up! Now, the food. Seriously, if someone would tell us before we’d fork-fight over a plate of RAW pad thai or sushi made of cauliflower rice and papaya ‘salmon’…but we did!
We can’t promise we gonna start a new healthy life on Monday, but we’ll enjoy ourselves trying:)
