I am so loving this place so much right now.
I am trying to drink in as much as I can in our short stay here, because before we know it, we’ll be outta here, no doubt planning a return ‘dream’ trip back.
Day 3 had us lying in for a little bit and eventually leaving the hotel just after lunch to make the trek across town to Santa Monica for a late lunch at Planet Raw.
This is only our second raw restaurant we have visited and so far MY favourite!
To start with I had
derived from a dark age spell: the blood of a fuji apple, ginger, lime and red beets – our server also confirmed it also had some sparkling water as I thought it had had some kombucha to give it some fizz
MOCA SHAKE our amazing ice blended coffee shake with maca & chocolate
with the most amazingly crunchy sweet granola topping. This was more like a dessert, so Pat chose to save it for last.
Then we shared:
SPRING ROLLS avocado, kelp noodles, cabbage, and Thai herbs, in a coconut wrapper with a no-peanut sauce
and one of the daily specials – felafel wrap with a goregous crunchy little sandwich thingy on the side.
Manus insisted on paying the bill
I thought I saw Chef Juliano sitting by the kitchen working away but I wasn’t sure. I wish, I’d had the guts to say hello and tell him how MUCH we enjoyed the meal – super tasty and well seasoned!
Then it was time to head off to 3rd street promenade
And to catch up with this lovely lady

which was cut short because Manus was a little under the weather but was fun to meet the little lady in the flesh after a couple of years of emailing back and forth!
