What’s more blissful than dinner at Bliss Raw Café & Elixir Bar in Dallas, one of my favorite raw restaurants ever? Dinner at Bliss with The Blissful Chef, Christy Morgan! Christy and I have been Facebook pals for awhile now, and when she moved to Dallas a few months ago, we knew a meetup was in our future. Finally, the week after Memorial Day, we made it happen!
Christy brought along her boyfriend James (who’s affiliated with DallasVegan.com) and I, of course, had Matt in tow.
I got my usual Hemp Horchata to drink…
…and Christy and James shared a kale salad to start.
For the main meal, James ordered the Rawko Tacos, one of my favorite dishes at Bliss.
Christy had the lasagna.
I tried the Primavera Bowl (kelp noodles, basil pesto, sundried tomatoes, garlic, bell peppers, and olives) for the first time…
…and Matt got the Greek Pizza (check out those humongous capers!).
For dessert, Christy and James shared the Pumpkin Cheesecake. I’ve tried it before, and it’s amazing!
Matt and I opted for the Cherry Cheesecake.
It was supremely cherry-y, and I might’ve even detected a hint of cherry liqueur in there. Delish!
All in all: a great meal, with great people, at a GREAT restaurant! Be sure to check out Christy’s account of it here too.
And now, the last meal of this particular road trip: another raw lunch at Matthew Kenney OKC on the way home. Matt and I shared the Spicy Vegetable Spring Rolls as an appetizer: glass (i.e. kelp) noodles, shiitake mushrooms, carrots and red pepper, and tamarind fondue.
I loved the Avocado Dragon Roll from last time so much that I got it again as my main dish.
Matt ate the Spring Vegetable Sandwich: young lettuce, radish, avocado, cucumber, and sweet pea puree.
Finally, on the way out, we grabbed a Mango Creamsicle smoothie to go.
I’ve got even more travels to share with you in the next week or two, including our recent trip to Toronto, Canada!
