Leaf Cuisine (Culver City)

By in 13: Culver City

I always tease a carnivorous co-worker Zack to try this place, Leaf Cuisine that we often drove by. Its hip muted solid green exterior made it looked like a modern furniture store on 3rd St. Finally I tried it myself…my god…Zack’s right! His description of their food: it is as if you’re walking in a jungle and open your mouth to eat anything that’s in your way. Their raw-cooking vegan menu is all organic, oil-less, no dairy products. The wraps are wrapped in giant raw leafs instead of flour bread. I got the Flying Falafel (sprouted chickpea falafel croquettes w/ creamy tahini sauce, marinated onions, mixed greens, tomatoes & sprouts). It is cold, bare and raw. I can take a few bites until my tastebud was numbed by the bitter rawness…it’s like eating grass! Total GREEN overdose! Too hardcore for me. The interior was very nice though, and they were playing someone’s French-mix (with Brigitte Bardot, Paris Combo).
