COUNTER CULTURE | AUSTIN, TX
Counter Culture is a completely vegan restaurant that offers other healthy options as well, such as gluten-free, soy-free, oil-free and raw vegan dishes. This place recognizes that vegan doesn't always mean healthy, and therefore emphasizes locally-grown, organic, unprocessed, and nutritious foods. Which is basically my mantra when it comes to food.
Located in East Austin, Counter Culture doesn't only portray their originality in their food, but also in regards to their atmosphere. Inside the restaurant you'll find completely teal walls and tables. Love it!
The food we ordered was incredible! We ordered the raw bruschetta (my favorite - I could eat it all day) as an appetizer. Mark ordered their special of the day - soul food burritos with sweet potato, beans, rice, and veggies inside, and as a side, their roasted beets and potatoes. I ordered their spicy raw pad thai with a side of melon gazpacho and sprouted quinoa salad.
Mmmm. I need to take photos of the food I eat more often; I love how colorful my food is in pictures!! :)
I can't wait to go here again and try more things off the menu! If you live in Austin or are visiting - keep Counter Culture on your list for a healthy and tasty meal.
