Every time I walked by Kupfert & Kim I saw a huge line up, which means their food is good right?

I passed by Kupfert & Kim again last Tuesday and I thought I would give this restaurant a try this time.

I ordered Kim because the server suggested.  I also ordered their Daily Cold Tea, which was Southern Ice Tea, because it was a hot day.  I paid almost $15 all together.

As of Kim, I love the almond chili sauce, organic tofu, and pickle carrots, but I thought the veggies were not fresh enough.  Also, the portion size, I thought, was too small for its price (it costed close to $10).   I even tried the green sauce that was given to me and I did not like it.  All I tasted was the spiciness.

As of the Ice Tea, it tasted just like any ice teas out there.  But it was not too expensive (it costed around $3), so I thought it was worth it.

Overall, I think this restaurant is overrated.  There are other restaurants that serve similar food with better quality. I was disappointed.

Toronto Restaurant Review: Rawlicious Markham (Rating: 3.5 out of 5)

I had to think about what to eat last Friday because my parents had dinner with their friends.  I also did not want to cook because it was Good Friday.

I was thinking where I could grab healthy and awesome food in my area. After a thorough research on the Internet, I found Rawlicious, a raw, vegan and organic restaurant. Luckily, the restaurant opened on Good Friday, so I drove to the restaurant to order take out.

The restaurant is located on Main Street Markham right across from Scotiabank.  I got a very warm welcome from the staff and one of them suggested me their Pad Thai and The Classic Burger with Jicama Fries.  I also ordered their Berry Much Protein Smoothies. My bill was about $47 all together.

I sat down at the restaurant while I waited for my food.   I loved the interior because it is simple and roomy.  It is definitely a good place to have lunch dates with your friends if they happen to love vegan and organic food.

The restaurant service was fast as well because I only waited for about 10 minutes for my food.  As a result, it only took me less than 30 minutes to get my supper.

Ok! Let’s get to the taste.  Firstly, the smoothies was awesome! I could taste the strawberries, blueberries, goji berries, and brown rice protein.  It also had the right consistency. I could not believe it was made with almond milk.

Secondly, the Pad Thai was alright. Although I did not like the zucchini and kelp noodle that much, I LOVE THE THAI SAUCE.  The sauce was not too spicy, yet gave some kicks to the dish.

Lastly, the open-faced Classic Burger was great! Although the burger did not have the same consistency as a regular meaty burger, but it still tasted good.   There was a dipping sauce that came with the dish and I dipped the Jicama Fries with it.  Sadly, The Jicama Fries tasted alright and I wish they use sweet potatoes instead.

Overall, I like this restaurant and I would come back again with someone who loves vegan and organic food.
