Raisin' The Roof @ Bukit Damansara

To a committed carnivore, adopting a vegan/vegetarian diet - no meat, no fish, no dairy, no eggs - sounds like a dramatic step and seem almost impossible, especially when everyone around you are unconsciously a meat eater. 

I've been very health conscious just recently, doing all sorts of researches and read up a lot of articles about being a vegan. I found that there's a big controversy on the internet about the topic like 'Why I went vegan' or 'How I became vegan', etc. 

I started to watch very closely about my diet and found that eighty-percent of my food aren't vegan and I'm trying to adapt a vegan lifestyle. 

I became more aware of places that doesn't serve meat and focusing on just plant-based meal, then came Raisin The Roof- A vegetarian restaurant that serves raw, clean, unprocessed food that preaches the #Eatclean philosophy. 


Very Berry Parfait RM14.90

Made of fresh strawberries & blueberries layered with creamy greek yoghurt and sprinkled with their house made Matcha cranberry pecan granola for an additional antioxidant punch. 

I personally love Granola (a lot) to the extend that I can finish one box of granola in three days! I've tried all kinds of granola available in the local supermarket: YoGood, Kellogge's, Quaker, Dorset, Nature valleys, you name it... 

It's my fav snacks albeit the throat sometimes gets sore after having too much at one go. 


I love their yogurt:granola:fruits ratio as you get to taste everything in a spoonful. Exceedingly nutritious and delicious! A must try!


Fudge Brownie Trifle RM15.90

Date & walnut brownie layered with velvety banana-cashew cream sprinkled with house-made chocolate crunch granola. Wholesome, hearty & heavenly all in one!
Each mouthful was sweet and fudgy yet not cloying at all. 

You also get some chunky slice of banana and kernels of buckwheat sporadically as you continue to chow this down. 
Is there anything more gratifying than this?


Look how generous they are with their ingredients! 
(albeit the serving size is quite petit, around 3~4oz, but trust me, this can easily fill you up because the texture is so thick and dense!)




Next we had the Pistachio Falafel Salad.

I have always had a perception that salad usually taste bland and unappetising, it has to be drenched with creamy, sweet and sourish dressing but not until I try this Pistachio Falafel Salad, RM 19.90.


This Middle-eastern salad comes with freshly baked pistachio & herb falafels are served with roasted beets, grated carrots, tabouleh and home-made hummus, drizzled with mint yoghurt & pomegranate molasses.

Do not be deceived by the photos you see, the actual size of the salad HUGE. I could barely finish it by the end of the meal. Who says salad can't be filling? 
It's simple, raw and extravagantly delectable. 


We also had the Avocado Toast RM18.90 .

The Avocado Toast comes visually orgasmic, the first thing I noticed was the bread. 
Thick & dense danish rye bread spread with lemon tahini and mashed avocado, topped with fried egg, pomegranate molasses sauce and sesame seeds. 


The rye bread has a nice little crisp crunch on the outside and the middle is moist and full of whole grains. It pairs well with the creamy, dulcet mashed avocado and sunny side egg that's very minimally seasoned. And oh! It definitely requires extra gum strength to truly enjoy this wholesome toast. 


It's a texture and flavour complex dish in a nutshell,
and it was scrumptious overall.


For drinks, I had the 'Beautifying-moo-less milk' that is raw, cold-pressed and dairy free. 

It's Raisin's best-selling Pistachio Rose Nutmilk RM19.90.
Exquisitely made of pistachios, dates, rose water and sea salt. 
I love the velvety smooth and rich body of the vegan 'milk', with just a hint of sweetness and rose flavour to it. It was remarkably rejuvenating. 

My dining companion had the Skin Glow RM14.90 (not photographed)
(consist of Wheatgrass, Spinach, Lettuce, Parsley, Cucumber, Apple, Lemon, Guava) and it tasted refreshing. Not just a powerful thirst quencher, it also soothes the throat and calms the body on a scorching hot sunny day.

I was looking at their Truffles sitting in the cake display, and I saw a few interesting ones such as Chocolate Almond Truffle, Maca Espresso Truffle, - which are all raw, vegan and gluten free...and the juices and sandwiches too! 

I was so tempted to try them all but I was super full at that point. 
Oh well, on the bright side, this is definitely not gonna be my last time here. 
I think being vegan isn't that hard at all, you just have to have the actualisation to do something good for yourself. 

I do feel very much better after having a wholesome and nutritious plant-based meal though I am not too sure how long can I go on without eating meat/dairy/cheese, but I will try to get accustomed to this new diet, slowly but surely. ;) 
And you should too! Try going vegan for a week and see how your body feels... listen to your inner self. It's definitely not going to be easy but bear in mind, if something doesn't challenge you, it won't change you.
