Prasad in the Pearl District
February 4th, 2012 by thegalacticburrito

Last weekend I tried Prasad in the Pearl District.  It is one of two restaurants that cater to raw foodies.  The other being The Blossoming Lotus.  I actually got to go to Prasad twice over the weekend.  The first time I tried the Love Pasta. It has zucchini noodles tossed in basil pumpkin seed pesto, with sun-dried tomatoes, carrots & spinach, topped with cashew ricotta.  It was quite delicious.  I was very hungry so I did not photograph it.  But trust me it was quite beautiful.  It reminds me that I want to buy a spiral slicer to make my own zucchini noodles.

The second time I went I tried the Fiesty Tostada.  It consists of jalapeno cashew cheese, fresh spinach, avocado, sun-dried tomatoes, scallions & green chili sauce on pumpkin seed pesto raw crackers, served with a side of hot sauce & yam rice salad with garlic tahini dressing.  It was also quite delicious.  There were a lot of different tastes competing for my attention.  I’m not a fan of hot stuff, but I liked that the hot sauce had a smoky flavor.  My friend Peggy had the same thing and she loved it.  She adores spicy food.  The yam rice salad was interesting.  I’m not a fan of yams, but I found it to be quite tasty.  Being on a raw food diet means trying lots of new things.

Prasad is located inside Yoga Pearl.  Where at the Blossoming Lotus I was served by a waitress, Prasad is much more casual.  You order your food at the counter and someone brings the food to the table.  It was a rainy day (imagine that in Portland) and Peggy and I chatted for quite a while.  I had a yerba mate and I went to the counter to get more hot water.  Peggy had a Harvest Cider which has, apple, lemon, and ginger juice, steamed with cinnamon and cayenne.  I had a sip of it and it is a great cold weather drink.

After our meal we visited The Dapper Frog Gallery at 915 NW Davis.  Lots of fun glass art to view.  If I had money I would be dangerous in this place.

If you want to eat at Prasad, they are located at: 925 NW Davis, Portland OR 97209.  Just so you know, their wraps are pre-made.  If you want to try one get their early so they are the freshest.
