February 10, 2018: In between waiting for the next ice dragon boat race, we found RAW Pulp + Grind on Preston Street in Little Italy and stopped in for some raw organic juice and wifi usage.
I wouldn’t have known from the exterior that this juice bar and health bowl spot was so spacious inside! They even have a backyard which I’m assuming gets converted into a patio in the warmer weather.
There was counter seating in the front of the restaurant and tables near the back in a minimalistic yet colourful place.
Ken ordered the Green Ranger smoothie which turned out to be so delicious! It had spinach, kale, spirulina, mango, pineapple, lemon, dates, almond mylk topped with hemp seeds. It was a rich lush green on colour and so thick. I liked how the server brought out the drinks to us.
It was one of the best tasting green smoothies I’ve had. Because of it was so thick, it was also quite substantial in portion. The hemp seeds were chewy and a good mix to the smoothie.
Ken also got an Espresso. I liked the presentation of it.
We spent some time here using their wifi which was fast and reliable according to Ken. It was definitely a cool casual spot for drinks or an acai bowl for a small group to hang out in or for solo quiet work.
I’m glad we stumbled upon this little organic pulp and grind spot!
