Prague: Get Raw at Rawcha

Carrying my massive 56-litre red backpack, I was waiting for my friend to show up at the Palladium shopping mall in Prague after the scheduled bus from Czesky Krumlov was delayed for a few hours. It wasn’t too difficult for Marika to spot me and after a few pleasantries, she brought me to Rawcha for late lunch.

When in Europe, I would try to order whatever that sounded exotic to me, which means avoiding Asian food as much as possible. So the above was what I decided – raw Arabian style falafel with Israeli salad and tahini. It was so beautifully decorated that I felt bad scoffing them into my mouth. Since I’ve not tried anything like this before, there’s no benchmark to compare with but I liked how so much thought was put into combining the ingredients to make it refreshingly tasty.

Marika opted for the raw sushi. Wrapped with a layer of seaweed, it was nutty with cashews, pecans, sunflower seeds, and carrots, decorated with sweet peppers. I tried one piece and it was not bad.

We were served elderflower water, which is said to be quite common in spring/ summer. I could taste a subtle hint of the flower and believe no sugar was added.

So delighted to hang out with my new friend Marika. Isn’t she photogenic?

For dessert, Marika ordered a raw green tea cake, which she didn’t quite fancy.

And raw durian cake! I was quite surprised to find durian in Europe. Really? And was pleasantly surprised and impressed that my friend actually liked it!
