Vegan in Victoria: Caesar Salad at Rawthentic

Wow! What a busy week. My boyfriend and I are moving this weekend. We have lived at our current place for 3 and a half years so in order to get our deposit back, we really need to clean everything from head to toe. It is a really big job. We aren’t dirty people, but of course overtime, everything builds up. On the bright side, we don’t have much things to pack. Anyways!

I recently went to Victoria to check out the Egyptian exhibit at the local museum (pictures are on my Instagram). It was a really cool experience. There was this mummified cat and I tried to take a picture of it, but all of my pictures came out blurry. Every. Single. Time. When I took pictures of the other artifacts, it was fine. It was very strange.

Before we went to the museum, we went to Rawthentic for an early lunch. I really wanted to get the tacos (this girl loves her Mexican food – even though it’s obviously not authentic), but they ran out of one of the ingredients. They were very nice and accommodating though. I ended up getting the Caesar salad. I was not sure what to expect of it. I had a bad experience with sun dried tomatoes and I try to stay away from them (they have traumatized me). I was especially scared that they were going to be dried and not rehydrated.

I was pleased to see that when the dish came, they were in fact hydrated and could not taste them. The dressing was nice and it came with a piece of garlic “bread”. The dressing wasn’t overly garlicky so I would say it isn’t a traditional Caesar dressing, but it was still good. The thing that stole the show was their raw “chicken”. Wow! I am very impressed! The chicken doesn’t actually taste like chicken, but it does have a taste that reminds me of chicken. It was soft in the middle and had an almost crunchy outside. It’s loaded with flavour. I think they said that it is made with a mix of nuts – how cool! In my opinion, this chicken is what made the dish. If I ever go back to Victoria and go to this restaurant, I would be very interested in trying another chicken dish like the burger.

Have you guys been here? If so, what did you get? Let me know in the comments!
