42 Degrees Raw is located right in the heart of the town, opposite of the HAY design store. They do have other two stores although we didn't get to try those this time.
The interior is simple, modern and clean. Long wooden table and benches, with warm lights hanging in the middle. It reminds me of some small cozy cafe on campus. Even it uses “raw” in its name, this is not a hardcore raw food place. As I said before, I actually appreciate food that embraces high-raw concept, with high proportion of raw food, but without excluding the other ingredients which have to undergone cooking process for better human digestion.
We ordered three different types of salads, almost all featuring red quinoa. It was tasty, however it wasn’t something special. I wish there would be more characteristics of each salads.
We also tried one of the burgers. It tasted good, but overall a little plain… as I couldn’t remember the impression by now.
Overall, we like the simplicity of the place, but didn’t get chance to try more of their other dishes. It is a nice place to hang out, rest a little, eat a bit, especially when you’re tired strolling around the stores nearby. We would love to go back again some time, and hopefully next time get to eat something amazing, especially those beautiful and tantalizing breakfast bowls on the wall!
