The Raw Kitchen
The owners of The Raw Kitchen, Emma (a student of integrated medicine) and Heath Gilbert, passionately believe that everyone should have a connection with the source of their food. This belief is the guiding inspiration behind their unique venue, founded in a refurbished 1920s warehouse. Opened in 2013 in Fremantle, this multifaceted space includes a yoga studio, a smoothie bar, a large upstairs space for events and workshops, and even their own retail store stocked with specialty products, books, organic skin and home care items, and local/eco/handmade gifts. The Raw Kitchen has risen to become one of the most popular whole food nutrition joints in Perth, thanks to the care they put into serving and sourcing wholesome food that not only tastes great, but makes you feel great, too. Their preservative-free menu is clearly grounded in the idea that our choices of food should be influenced by sustainability, ethicality and respect for the environment, as much as by what is healthy for us individually. Star attractions include the popular raw nachos; the live zucchini pasta with tomato pasta sauce, avocado, mushroom, and kalamata olives, basil, ‘parmesan’ and cracked black pepper; and the raw sandwich on dehydrated flax bread with avocado, marinated mushroom, mango salsa, fresh salad, raw cashew mayonnaise and alfalfa. For those looking for a hot meal, the wheat and gluten-free pizza does not disappoint.
Opening Hours: Monday to Thursday: 11.30am – 3.30pm; Friday to Saturday: 11.30am – 9pm
