Rockin' Raw is a cozy, raw, organic, vegan, gluten free restaurant in Greenwich Village. It offers a broad and tasty selection of creative Creole – Peruvian style dishes that are beautifully served. (Website: RockinRaw.com)
I dined here with some friends who enjoyed the Mushroom Cabiche (Peruvian style marinated mushrooms), the Jalapeno Poppers (spicy cheesy jalapenos stuffed with sunflower cheddar "cheese"), and the Fully Loaded Nachos (seasoned flax chips fully loaded with seed meet, sour cream (vegan), nacho cheese (vegan) and guacamole). I ate some absolutely scrumptious live pasta, Tallarines a la Hauncaina, which was served with mouthwatering creamy aji/nut cheese sauce, Peruvian corn, mushrooms and peppers.
Rockin' Raw also offers a great selection of delicious shakes, smoothies, and desserts. The service is friendly and caring.
The advantage of dinning at Rockin' Raw is the amalgam of delicious, healthy food with affordable prices, so you never regret dining there.
The widely-followed Living Maxwell site says of Rockin' Raw that "it totally rocks." Moreover, "this Peruvian-Creole raw vegan restaurant is a true gem" with "fantastic raw food" and an "amazingly calm atmosphere". (Click here for the complete glowing review.)
