More SunPower Natural Cafe
Ryan and I had another chance to head over to SunPower Natural Cafe, and I guess I’m a fan of their drinks since this is the second one that I’m posting about! This is the Fresh Squeezed Lemonade with Agave, and I think I can say without exaggeration, that this is the best lemonade I’ve ever had. It’s the perfect balance of tart and sweet, without being sour or super sugary. This lemonade is especially refreshing in this 90 degree weather we’ve been having.
We decided that we’d split a couple of entrees, and for the first one we chose the Asian Salad. It consists of marinated tofu, cashews, orange slices, raisins, onions, sesame seeds, water chestnuts and greens with orange-ginger dressing. I’ll admit that I was wary of both the tofu and the raisins in this salad since neither are my favorite, but both added great flavor and texture in combination with all the other ingredients. I would definitely order this again. It’s a refreshing and tasty salad.
The other dish that we decided to split was the Lettuce Tacos. On the menu they’re described as “Savory SunPower ‘chorizo’, tomato sauce, green onions, tomatoes, pine nuts, cashew cheese, ranch dressing and avocado, wrapped in Romaine leaves.” We’d had these tacos before, and they were definitely good enough to order again. Ryan was a little skeptical the first time we ordered them, but we both loved them at first bite. Like a lot of raw food, they may not seem like they’d be enough to fill you up, but they definitely do.
We’ve yet to have a bad meal at SunPower. All of the food is fresh tasting and very satisfying. It can be a bit pricey, but I don’t think that’s outside the norm for raw foods. If you get a chance to head over there for a bite, you won’t be disappointed!
