The raw food movement is slowly winning me over, there are some great places around town to find the raw equivalent of a decadent chocolate cake or creamy topped carrot cake. The other day I attempted a raw chocolate mousse with the main ingredient being avocado. The end result looking a little messy but it was seriously delicious. I also felt good afterwards.
Located at the quiet end of the Station Street Markets opposite the Angry Almond store is a food and drink bar called The Mighty Rawwr. The store has a beautiful display of foods from a Chocolate Beetroot Torte to a Citrus Kale Salad. For those coffee drinkers like myself there is a lovely big coffee machine. The Mighty Rawwr use Bannister Downs Milk and Fiori coffee beans from local West Australian businesses.
We ordered two takeaway long macchiatos and a Rawwr Reeces Pieces slice to share. Oh my gosh this little goodness of raw dessert was unbelievably delicious, creamy and I could taste each ingredient. Raw food in Perth is not cheap, the small slice cost $6.50. Eating healthy seems to come with a premium. But I believe as more and more people switch to this style of eating, perhaps the price will come down. Neitherless this was a perfectly made slice and we loved it. The coffees were strong and perfect.

Subiaco is blessed with a number of spacious green parks and wanting a change in scenery we walked to one located along Juniper Bank Way. It is a beautiful place of green lawn, BBQ and playground facilities and a large lake. There is a path that circles the border of the park and dogs on leashes are allowed. Even though this place in the middle of Subiaco it is peaceful.
