Should you ever find yourself in Sedona, Arizona, treat yourself to ChocolaTree
. This all-organic vegan oasis of a restaurant makes delicious and fresh dishes that’ll please cleansers and carnivores alike.
I accidentally discovered ChocolaTree during a visit to Sedona about a week ago — and became a temporary regular, eating all meals there during the rest of the stay! My favorite entree was the Falafel Plate — flavorful sprouted falafel balls and a fresh salad with veggie hummus, a creamy garlic dip, and raw flatbread.
For a spicier entree, go for the raw Viva Burrito — a sundried tomato wrap filled with fresh veggies and dressed with all manner of decadent vegan deliciousness — from some of the best guacamole I’ve ever tasted to creamy “cheese.”
Or opt for very sustainable sushi! The “deep sea pate” in the Sushi gives the raw rolls a taste of the sea — and although they don’t quite have the taste of real fish, they’ll be about the freshest, most reinvigorating sushi rolls you’ll try.
For those craving a warm meal, ChocolaTree does offer some cooked dishes. The creamy Kale Quinoa bowl will comfort and satisfy while feeding you a lot of good fresh veggies.
Save room for dessert! The raw German Chocolate Cake is super rich, with each layer adding a different decadent yumminess. My favorite was the raw Pecan Pie, however — nutty goodness with a side of creamy coconut ice cream. In addition, a chocolate display at the front of the store offers lots of bite-sized chocolate morsels to pick from.
I hope to visit Sedona again soon — and ChocolaTree is one of the main reasons. What's the best organic restaurant you've discovered while on an eco-vacation?
