Beets Cafe is incredible
The ever-so-tasty portobello fajita plate
Welcome the newest gluten-free/raw/vegetarian restaurant to Austin. Beets Café is situated on west 5th street in the new shopping center on the right side, close to Mean Eyed Cat. Beets Cafe provides an upscale feeling by having a wide open space with plenty of seating, decadent decorations, and they have waitresses who are eager to help you. I was more than pleased when we walked in one afternoon to find everyone working there with a pleasant smile on their face and ready to serve you! We were seated right away and a very enthusiastic waitress came to take our order. They have plenty to choose from on their menu from fresh squeezed juices to fajitas and salads.
I decided to go with the first thing that popped out at me and that was the colorful Portobello fajita plate, beets me drink and the zucchini hummus plate. The appetizer came first, the zucchini hummus plate, with freshly sliced vegetables such as carrots, cauliflower and celery. The hummus texture was so creamy and delicious it is hard to believe it is made without beans. The drink took a while to make but it was well worth it in the end. The cool, beets me drink made with beet, apple, carrot and ginger juice was rich and filling. It would make a perfect snack on any hot Texas day. When the Portobello fajita plate arrived on our table, we were somewhat full from our hummus plate and wonderful drinks we ordered but couldn’t help but devour the rainbow of colors we saw on our plate. The Portobello fajita plate was one of the best raw meals I think I have ever tasted. It had a surprise of flavors in every bite. The plate was full of Portobello mushrooms, bell peppers, garlic, onions, cilantro and chilies. Indulge in raw food. You will be surprised at how much you will enjoy it.
