I recently discovered a link to a raw vegan restaurant/cafe that opened up in Melbourne not too long ago- Le Cru. It's Melbourne's first ever raw dining restaurant and I plan to check it out. It's located in Albert Park  and is opened Wed-Fri 11.30am-3.30pm, Tue-Sat 6pm-10pm.
Just though I might spread thee word considering how delish the menu sounds  peace

Oooh raw vegan? Im presuming lots of salads and platters? I can't really think of many vegan meals without using cooking. Wait, raw means just fruit & vege, yeah? No pulses and grains?

Food  is  eaither 'cooked' by  being dehyrdrated  and foods cooked below 45 degrees are considered raw. I  know that  if you soak  vegies for 48 hours  it's as though they've been cooked but I can't wait that long for my broccoli.

They use honey in a fair bit of stuff, apparently... or did for a while at least.
From another forum:
"the nut milks contain honey, apparently they won't use agave as honey "just tastes better", "doesn't hurt the bees" and "most vegans eat honey anyway". "
Also some of the wine isn't vegan/vegetarian (but hey, the beer at enlightened cuisine isn't vegetarian by my standards).

Other than those gripes, I'm interested to suss this place out.

I think its that natural food keeps its highest potent of nutrients if it isnt cooked. I have no doubt that raw vegans would be extremely healthy, but wouldnt they be missing out on carbohydrates found in pulses and grains?

Either that or they're just too lazy to use a stove.
