Last weekend, I had brunch at Karyn’s Raw for the very first time. I have dined there several times, but somehow I wasn’t aware of the fact that they do a brunch buffet on Sundays.

Karyn's Raw

I learned of the buffet from one of their newsletters that advertised the buffet for only $19.99. I felt like it was a joke – a RAW buffet, all-you-can-eat for only $19.99!?!?

Well, it’s true my friends. I talked to Karyn myself, and she said that she is going to keep the raw buffet that price for the remainder of the winter. This deal is rare, the normal price of the buffet is $29.99.

Dear Chicagoans or anyone visiting Chicago soon, GET THERE.

Some of my favorite items on the buffet last week included the Kale & Quinoa Salad, Thai Veggie Stir Fry with Kelp Noodles + Peanut Sauce, Bean Burro, Dinner Roll + Gravy, and the Sweet Flat Bread.

In other news, Beyonce (yes, THE Beyonce) just stopped in to one of Karyn’s restaurants, Karyn’s Cooked while she was on tour in Chicago. Maybe you haven’t heard the news, Beyonce & Jay-Z are on a 22-day plant-based vegan diet. Why 22 days? Because it take 21 days to form a habit and on the 22nd day, you have found the way. I hope they stick with it after the 22 days are up and if not, I hope they gain a new level of consciousness and inspire others to try a plant-based lifestyle.
