Eat your Greens and Even Enjoy Them, at Rawligion

Rawligion is a new restaurant on Tottenham Street, which plans to revolutionise the way Londoners see their greens by offering plant-based food, thus providing delicious nourishment in its rawest possible form - all under the divine eye of celebrated consultant chef Kate Magic. SEEN can think of no finer way to get your five-a-day regime kickstarted.

Rawligion is a new restaurant on Tottenham Street, which plans to revolutionise the way Londoners see their greens by offering plant-based food, thus providing delicious nourishment in its rawest possible form – all under the divine eye of celebrated consultant chef Kate Magic. SEEN can think of no finer way to get your five-a-day regime kickstarted.

Rawligion is a concept brought to life by ex-professional poker player John Tabatabai. Tired of suffering the stress and strain of his occupation, and after a spell of ill health, John switched to a raw diet in order to feel healthier. He was so successful that he is now committed to spreading the good word and helping to introduce people to ingredients that taste amazing AND make them feel even better.

Inspired by the innovative and forward-thinking raw food trends of America’s East Coast, the menu at Rawligion excludes all animal products (except honey), and everything is served in its rawest form possible. This includes an abundance of local, seasonal and organically grown fresh vegetables, fruits, herbs, spices, sprouts, seeds, sea vegetables and cold-pressed oils.

The décor looks as fresh as the ingredients they use: walls are adorned with vine leaves and interwoven with twigs to help guests feel at one with the world around them. The needs of the modern age are not forgotten either, with USB chargers available for people who need to power up their phones and laptops.

Rawligion’s breakfast menu includes coconut yoghurt pots, chia puddings and a unique coconut, banana and almond butter wrap, where the wrap is made purely from coconut meat. Snacks include a must-try, home-made trail mix as well as a “gRAWnola”. SEEN is looking forward to that. Early risers will love the breakfast options, plus there’s even a “Chocolate Room” where diners can feast on only the finest raw chocolates – think peppermint thins and salted caramels to name just a few!

Diners will be able to enjoy salads such as massaged kale with activated sunflower seeds and immune boosting maitake mushrooms; alongside raw cauliflower sushi served with seaweed caviar and even pizzas with tasty crusts made from a combination of dehydrated grated courgette and seeds.

Rawligion is a revelation when it comes to beverages too, with the star attraction set to be London’s very first Oji Cold Drip Coffee Tower. Known as ‘the Rolls Royce of cold drip towers’, the Oji is handmade in Tokyo and is alone worth a trip to Rawligion. This artisan coffee is served in a variety of ways, both warm and cold, in addition to a refreshing range of nourishing smoothies, freshly pressed juices and special milks.

All dishes are suitable for vegetarians and many also for vegans, too. Rawligion does not serve any grains or dairy, so everything is gluten-free and adequate for those on a Paleo diet. No health excuses for not dining out at Rawligion! If this is the new way of eating our greens, SEEN is ready to worship.
