On my way back to Squamish from Victoria, I detoured into downtown Nanaimo to visit this raw restaurant. It was more than worth the trip!
The food is extremely delicious. Everything seems to be made with great attention and care. I ordered as much as I could possibly eat in an afternoon, and brought many entrees back to Squamish to share with friends. The onion wrap, falafel wrap, raw pizza and lasagna were all fantastic. I particularly enjoyed the raw apple pie and tiramisu. Everything else on the menu appeared equally amazing.
Power House Living Foods is a very casual restaurant with no table service (but plenty of tables to sit at). It is not a fancy high-end vegan restaurant like Be Love and more suited to lunch or early dinners.
The staff was super friendly. Everything was 100% raw, vegan and gluten free. I wasn’t able to ascertain exactly the percentage of organic ingredients. I am never sure what the phrase ‘whenever possible’ means, but I hear it a lot.
I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone passing close to Nanaimo. It is surely worth a special trip into the city. Everything appears to be delicious here, from the entrees to the smoothies to the desserts.
